The Colonial Parkway Murders /// Part 2 /// 227

Part 2 of 2

www.TrueCrimeGarage.com

The Colonial National Historic Parkway, Virginia - From 1986 to 1989, four young couples died at the hands of what the FBI long ago concluded was most likely a serial killer or killers. For years investigators actively and exhaustively worked the case, compiling a list of 150 possible suspects. But no one was ever arrested. This week we discuss the details of these unsolved cases and examine if the cases are in fact linked.

Christy Mirack /// Part 2 /// 225
Part 2 of 2
December, 1992 - Inside Christy Mirack's sixth grade classroom, her students waited for her arrival. She was the type of teacher that went above and beyond. Unfortunately, she never made it out the front door of her home. Someone brutally attacked this young woman and left her lifeless body inside her townhouse. The investigation started. The usual suspects were interviewed, and all leads were followed. Then the case went cold as the winter dragged on. This week we discuss the murder of a young and promising woman and the hunt for her killer.
