The Story Of The Serial Killer Who Terrorized This Small New Hampshire Town Is Truly Frightening

We tend to think of New Hampshire as a safe place where neighbors look out for one another, and for the most part that’s true – after all, we have one of the lowest murder rates in the country. But real psychopaths can pop up anywhere, and even our haven of the Granite State is not immune. In the late 70s and early 80s, a serial killer was walking among us and nobody knew it until the grisly evidence of his crime turned up and horrified one small town.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
