EP64: The Gypsy Hill Murders

In a six-month time span in 1976, five women were murdered near Gypsy Hill Road in San Francisco, California.   Another woman named Michelle Mitchell was murdered in a similar manner in Reno, Nevada and investigators believed all of the killings were linked to a serial killer, who stopped as suddenly as he started.    However, that theory was turned upside down when a year later, four employees at a strip club were convicted of one of the murders and implicated in another of the Gypsy Hill deaths.  Four years after the first Gypsy Hill murder, a woman named Cathy Woods confessed to one of the killings.  Cathy was tried, convicted, and sentenced to life for the murder.  Then, 35 years later DNA testing was done on all the evidence found at six murder scenes, and the results shocked everyone involved in the cases.
