"Tax are cana- gazette during the spree. The phantom described zola's as quote. He was one of the best looking. Man i have ever seen and wore a spotless. Khaki suit and white ten gallon hat he picked to ivory handle revolvers on his hips and did not deny that he was the ranger who sat in the cashier's office at the crazy. Water hotel in mineral wells and gunned down to ex convicts who sought to rob the place. He was so good looking that my girl reporters would not leave him alone. E really didn't have time to hunt down the phantom us too busy giving interviews and trying to run the gazette. All the other officers working on the case were insanely jealous of the lone wolf and complained bitterly. Every time his picture appeared in the paper Well i think we're going to have to look up this man not for any particular reason. No no i'm not. I'm not going to do that right now. It's not link year that i'm going to click. You didn't hear that. click no. There's no picture so it's fine. We're safe we're safe from the back onto the the rest of this. The story of the lone wolf mahaffey also stated that after the murder of virgil starks. Police declared the farmhouse off limits to everybody clothed several nights later. I was holding forth in the arkansas police station. When a call came through that a neighbor had seen strange lights in the farmhouse we spend to the scene and i hid behind a car while police. Chief max tackett in three other patrolmen approached. The house chief tacky yelled into the house at the police had the place surrounded and the phantom might as well give up. Well who do you suppose walked out none other than lone wolf in swallows of the texas rangers and a woman photographer from the life and time magazines. Lone wolf explained rather sheepishly that he'd been reenacting the crime and the young lady was taking pictures of them. Chief tackett turned to me and shouted at the top of his voice. Mahaffey you can quote me as saying the phantom murders will never be solved and till the tax cana police department gets rid of the big city press and the texas ranges tillman. Johnson said quote whenever he came down the stairs from his hotel room. You go called for the press. He was a showman. He was a handsome man. Say and he made a good appearance and of course get a reputation for being a killer. So the press. All followed gins swallows. You went on to also say quote. No he didn't do any real police. work himself. It get in that car and ride around and ask a lot of questions about what the other officers had found. Then he'd release it to the press like it was his information got to wear after while some officers wouldn't tell him anything and louis swampy graves texarkana gazette reporter in nineteen forty. Six described gins walla's a handsome man with a lot of personality. He was well built. He said and warwick cord suit and a battle jacket with bright buttons us very clean looking with an olive complexion and were pearl handled pistols one on each hip. He looked like a typical texas ranger. Said graves you went on. Also say he would have been perfect in the old west. He fit the description going round in those years about the number of texas rangers needed to quell a riot. One riot one ranger now. My best guess is dad. Lone wolf didn't go to hollywood just to be a technical director or consultant. My guess is he went to go be a movie star but it just didn't work out for him so he did what he could do and got into the movies and other way which is fine. I mean i don't work in the movies. I wish i worked in the movies. But let's go on with some of the investigation shall we. And then maybe we'll do some suspects. We'll see how the time runs here so the investigation and post events of the phantom killings was obviously going to cause a stir in the community. The miller county sheriff's department was notified just minutes after the alarm reached. Hopes he please. Arkansas state police officers charley boyd. And max tackett got the call on the radio and were the first officers at the scene. Some of the reports were contradictory. One of the officers said that found stark's slumped in the blood soaked chair and that the chair had caught fire from the electrical pad that was heating his neck. Smoke was filling the room they said and was coming up all around them ban between his legs yet. Sheriff davis said when the officers arrived at the scene. They've found the chair on fire but starts. His body was not burned because it had fallen to the floor immediately. After reports of the slaying spread blockades were set up several miles northeast and southwest highly. Sixty seven east. Sheriff davis called in officers from the entire area to help the investigation including two agents from the fbi. Captain wallas and other texas rangers sheriff presley and his deputies. Sheriff jim sanderson from little river county. Arkansas state police local police and many others in the house. Investigators found a trail of blood with scattered teeth on the dining room. Table were katie. Starks is supplies for making address. Gonzalez's is after seeing the virtual river of blood stated quote. It is beyond me why she did not bleed to death. There were only two bullet holes in the window leading. Sheriff davis to believe an automatic rifles used. Investigators declared that after the killer shot virgil. He waited patiently outside the window to shoot at his wife. Three clues were found at the scene. The i was the caliber of bullets. The second was a flashlight found in the head underneath the window. That starks was shot from and the last were bloody prints around the house shoeprints on the kitchen floor and smudged fingerprints in other places. Sheriff davis stated that although this murder could not be directly linked to the phantom killer because of the caliber of bullets which was a twenty two in this case said it is possible that the killer is one in the same man. Those who've been driving in the area near the time of the slaying along with other several men found in the vicinity were picked up for questioning early on saturday morning. Bloodhounds were brought in from hope by the arkansas state police. They found two trails that lead to the highway before the scent was caused by sunday night. More officers recalled in to help in the investigation officers had detained at least twelve suspects but only kept three for further questioning. Forty seven officers were working to solve the murders among them. Sheriff's of four counties captain can swallows and his staff of texas rangers and chief. Deputy tillman johnson.

"Like this insight into people interesting questions interesting answer so i was surprised to one hundred ten million but it totally makes sense especially for all of those decades where that was like a crucial piece of entertainment. Yeah yeah and i mean there wasn't much else. There weren't one hundred channels and yada yada yada so this was a big deal and cemented in the legacy of these crimes and kind of the interesting tangential legacy because obviously people aren't going around telling the story of the phantom killer but those crimes are the reason this urban legend grew like this and so then this legend itself continue to have ripple effects on pop culture. The story was featured in the nineteen eighty-one collection of short horror stories for children so scary stories to tell him the dark book series. Which is probably where i heard it from thinking back like i remember somebody had it in my elementary school and then is like ooh everybody has happened to get scale so book series has been hailed as an another quote a cultural touchstone for generation. Which i mean. I feel that from my own. I was ration- i think that's probably where i got it too because that sounds like right. Eighty one is kind of like right around when i had an awareness of that and other legends of that era. Yeah because it turned into a series and then also just being the youngest. Like i'm the youngest in my immediate family but i am drastically the youngest in all of my cousins ring up like twenty years older than me like the baby of his entire family. Except now there's a new generation behind me but yeah and then in two thousand seventeen. The books had collectively sold more than seven million copies. But like you hold that up against dear abby and that's nothing i mean wow damn. I'm just like shocked about dear. Abby hundred and ten million but there is a film made of the book series in two thousand nineteen which i really enjoyed it was produced by dear del toro..

"It's a piece of folklore that even made it to me on my farm. The basic premise involves a young couple cuddling in a car with the radio playing suddenly a news bulletin reports that a serial killers escaped in nearby institution. Folks probably heard. This killer has a hook. They decide to leave in the end. The killer because either found hanging from the door handle or embedded into the door itself. There are lots of different variations that include knocking and scraping narrowly escaping the killer. That's on the top of the car. Another version a woman sees a shadowy figure watching the couple nearby. The man leaves to confront the figure they and the man's been brutally murdered by a hook another version. They're driving through the country there in the middle of the woods. They have to stop for the guy to p and it's a mental patient that's escaped and there's thumping on the roof of the car. There's more versions of the men hanging right from a tree with blood dripping from him just it goes on and on but it's weird because you know it's this hook. It's not a gun. But the story began to circulate in the nineteen fifties and it's been really directly connected to these texarkana moonlight murders and according to folklorist and historian jan herald boulevard. The story became widespread among american teenagers. Nineteen fifty nine. And then that continue to expand into the sixties and so it grew legs of its own word of mouth. It was spreading. It was a popular story of popular legend but its popularity blue and one thousand nine hundred sixty when a reader wrote in two dear abby and they reprinted it so it short. I'll read it to you. It read quote dear abby. If you're interested in teenagers you will print this story. I don't know whether it's true or not but it doesn't matter because it served its purpose for me. A fellow in his date pulled into their favorite lovers lane to listen to the radio and do a little necking. The music was interrupted by an announcer. Who said there was an escaped convict in the area. Who had served time for rape and robbery. He was described as having a hook. Instead of a right hand. The couple becomes frightened and drove away. When the boy took his girl home he went around to open the car door for her then. He saw a hook on the door handle exclamation point. I will never park to make out as long as i live. And i hope this does the same for other kids signed janette so before burke there was dear abby yes and genet her also. I don't know you can't let everything ruin your life so but to put its impact into perspective. So they're probably listeners. Who maybe aren't familiar with dear abby. It was an advice column. That was circulated through a lot of newspapers and it has an estimated readership. At one hundred. Ten million people said. I had no surprise to. Yeah the new york. Times described it as a staple in american households for decades with. I mean i came of age in the dear abby era and even as a kid i remember looking forward to like when you aged out of the comics you moved onto the horoscope and dear abby and they were all on the same page and yeah i love dear abby and like you said there wasn't facebook yet and so it was.

"So he worked with the american international pictures to remove the still lurking statement but it stayed on the posters and the posters weren't the only controversy in nineteen seventy eight gerald at teenager shot and killed his high school friend in court Stated that he thought of his plan to be an outlaw. Like jesse james while watching the town that dreaded sundown still. The film has a place in texarkana since two thousand three. It's been shown around halloween at their yearly movies in the park. Event even launched something called a meta sequel which was a remake. But then also a sequel. It it was kind of hard to define what that meant. But that was in two thousand fourteen and it has the same name and it was produced by jason blum who's shepherd in the paranormal activity franchise and launched the horror production company blunt house and also ryan murphy of glee in american horror story. Fame and ryan ryan murphy said the movie that i was most freaked out by his child was the town that dreaded sundown. I was just starting to babysit my brother. Ads would come on for it. And i would get freaked out. He went on to say that it was one of his favorite childhood films. So i don't think it's too far of a leap to assume that these crimes in subsequent films are at least partially responsible for inspiring him to create the massively successful american horror story franchise at this point and even more sinister glee but jumping back so the crimes are also featured in the two thousand twelve film seven psychopaths also two thousand seventeen episode of riverdale and the inspiration for the two thousand and seven song texarkana moonlight by the ban. The bad detectives which is on our spotify for when this episode comes out. You can go and listen to that. There was even a play called the phantom killer that was written by jan patron who grew up in oak grove community near texarkana. And that debuted in manhattan adding done theater companies. Dorothy styling theater and then most recently it was featured in an episode of buzzfeed's unsolved true crime series. And i looked in that. Video has eight point four million views but probably in the most unique way. These crimes have inserted themselves into pop. Culture's by inspiring and urban legend the hook or the hook man. Now this story is widely popular..

"The phantom killer by james presley and this reviewer is like i said a distant cousin and so he's got some skin in the game but he utterly shreds the book and he links to some really interesting different resources. So there's a facebook discussion group and some other sites so check that out in the episode notes. If you wanna know more. I think there's a lot more to this case and i think that this could basically be a whole podcast this case. Honestly it's so mind keeps going back to zodiac and in that episode. We talked about the outsized impact because of the media. But also the timing like when you think of the forties like this. Exact case would have happened in the sixties. Maybe it would be one of the biggest cases in america and would be up there with zodiac. But i mean just so horrible definitely and you know happening in a community like this which you know. I don't proclaim to be an expert on texarkana but you know it feels like a big little town. Do you know what. I mean You know my sense was. It was a really tight knit community and i think it really kind of scarred the community in a weird way and i think the impact is still felt even though now i think it's kind of led to the town having this little bit off character you know so. There was a movie made from this case and they do a showing of that movie every summer in the park so kind of like seems to have imbued the town with kind of like a dark humor kind of twisted like personality. If a town can have a personality take stuff. Sorry i'm gonna take you out and leave mine. Yes please had over an apple podcasts. In rating review our show. It really helps us out. Plus we'll read five star reviews on upcoming episode so even though this didn't have the same level of fervor and it's not in our sort of true crime lexicon in the same way zodiac these murders still have quite a rich history and pop culture so in nonfiction alone i was able to find at least nine bucks and then fiction books. This is n. found another five. There could be more but kind of the the item really kicked it..

"The house. And now i'm just going to read this part and it's going to haunt me forever. She heard the killer tearing loose the rusted screen wire on the back porch. She thought she was going to be killed so she stumbled toward her bedroom near the front of the house to leave a note. Meanwhile the killer ran to the back of the house in made his way up. The steps and into the side screened porch through the back screen door. She heard the killer coming through the kitchen window so she turned around and ran through the dining room through the bedroom down a hallway through another bedroom and then into the living room and out the front door leaving behind a quote. Virtual river of blood end quote n. T. throughout the house and across the street barefoot and still in her blood soaked nightgown she ran across the street to her sister and brother-in-law's house because no one was home she ran fifty yards. More to av paraders house prater answered her call for help she gasped virgils dead then collapsed and quote it. Just it feels like it's taken a hundred percent from a horror movie just hard to even imagine being in that kind of scenario fortunately though katie did survive the attack but she could not. She could not describe her attacker. Initially investigators thought this crime was committed by different killer both because of the different mo and because the weapon used in this crime was a twenty two caliber but many continue to believe it was the same killer. And that seems to be the consensus. Today i mean again as i said texarkana even now is is not even two hundred thousand people. What are the chances that to deranged couple killers so not just killers but couple killers are loose at the same time but the different ammos are strange and difficult to reconcile and i feel that way about the entire case. You know there are a lot of threads that are very very similar but there are a lot of things that are just not an kind of don't make sense to me. But a lot of people thought. And i think the the final story about it all was that the killer was forced to change his mo because of all the patrols unofficial and official on the back roads in other places couples went to be alone. So i'll talk more about that in the next section but essentially the killer had to change how he was operating because there were just too many people looking for him in his usual. Kind of places you know..

So i'm going to be that person who the picture is obviously like twenty five years old. I've given instructors into all of my loved ones like this is the picture that needs to be used. Mine will be a slightly blurry photo of chris hemsworth. Yeah you know what. I think he could play you. We were talking about that before. And i've decided that although i send it obsessively in the episode i've gone back and listened and i'm like so scars guard. Whatever your first name is i forget. I'm bad with names. Like i figure amazing actor and and you're not old lear younger than me but yet he's a little old to play you so i think hemsworth is better but he'll have to. He'll have to work on like having more soul. Come through he can look a little. You know not filled with soul. I don't know how to. I'm not insulting him like he's also a fine actor but like you have real soul that needs to come through that portrayal so it'd be a stretch role for him. I think but you know he'd also have to lay christian. Bale and the machinist and lose ninety five percent of as well. You do have a job besides going to the gym and lifting weights so so what else before. We jump in the episode. Something exciting from your week your mind your year. You know like. I say up every little thing that happens to because i only have enough things that basically fill up like three minutes before an episode. But i do something that. I just started watching that. You might find interesting so i started watching sophie on netflix. Have you seen it or watched it. I have not seen nor heard okay. So it's a limited series documentary about a murder of a frenchwoman in the kind of remote countryside of ireland in west cork. And i'm only halfway through the first of the three episodes but already i'm really loving it. I don't have a sense of where it's going. There have been some foreboding statements. But when i really like about it is that it takes time with the story with the setting with the people so even though so far they have with some police in there have been you know. Investigation details included. it's very rooted and centred in storytelling at least so far. So i'm really looking forward to continuing matt and i would suggest you check it out. I'll put it on my list. Yeah what else. gosh. I don't know i've been doing a lot of work on the podcast. I mean you know. Yes yeah i think we have a great episode ahead of us. It's a lot here so yeah. The listener will already knows because of episode titles unless we really cryptic today is another bad one. I guess that's you know the true crime world are aren't they all. Yeah but the texarkana. Moonlight murders are crimes. That i was not very familiar with same in general at somehow passed my like true crime and even when i looked it up like it was only in a mini episode of my favorite murder. So it's like okay so they haven't done a full episode on this. Because i was really surprised. I feel like this crime is. I don't know the right word but like totally fits the bill to be heavily discussed crime in yet. I just haven't heard of it. Yeah yeah so..

That entire story. She says that it was untrue that she had made a bunch of stuff a day. Yeah so on and so forth can give myself down like hitler come to his painting. There's there's he's not good at painting so he's just gonna kill everyone anyways so then in nineteen forty seven. She has another statement she. She's talks about when she first started dating. You'll see you'll you well. I've heard people say both you will end. You will i. I don't know. I just know people name i i know i used to know it was you'll but it started with an e so i just say you. It's probably the difference between durant durant. Yeah you know where. You're going to throw in their three syllables. So she talks about when she first started dating him and it was in january. Nineteen forty six which is pretty crazy because just a month. After they began dating the first attack took place and they were married pretty quickly. And i don't know if that like he was him and her if they knew that if they got married she couldn't testify against him legally. They couldn't use anything she said but that would be really convenient because they had only been dating for a month and then they got married. That's normal ooh. They drove out to lubbock texas when we turned his car. Over to some riders they hitch. Hiked back to texarkana arrived on march eighth. Nineteen forty six. They left texarkana again in march. So she's talking about they were stealing a bunch of cars and then taking them out of town and selling them and then hitchhiking back to town then on march twenty four four. We had a late breakfast and then went to a movie. It took me back to the cabinet and left me and told me he was going to see a man about a car. I think it's cement about horse. Sweetie he returns to the cabin about nine pm with a green plymouth sedan. This time he told me to get my things and let's go. We went to dallas texas. The next time we visited texarkana was march. Thirtieth nineteen forty six. They stayed until april first. She says they still think swinney killed those people. I don't know what to do. They don't believe me. So what else do idea. But tell them that he did it. So this is when she's recanting. They will believe a lie. If i send sweating to the chair that would be on my mind for the rest of my life for taking his life. He was not one that killed that little boy and girl on april thirteenth. I could send him to the chair. Than i would be killing him and then she turns around and says basically the same thing that she said in the one that we just read that. She's she knows all of these details. They gave her a polygraph test. I guess That she when she was trying to recant that she failed which. I'm not really sure why. They kept interviewing her because they know she'd the couldn't put her against him to testify. So i think maybe they were trying to get like another name maybe another accomplice or something out of her that they could go and talk to and maybe get the story from that person and arrest him. I don't know they indict him. Anyway they indict him on all of these Car theft charges and all this other stuff and they end up asking for the max sentencing so that he'll have life in prison without getting life imprison but this is that. I think this is so great so after she confesses for the third time they go to him to ask him like what do you think about that is she lying. She telling the truth. Why don't you just confess now or you know how police do. You're gonna love this. He says he advised that quote. Peggy my wife is a complete moron and that also facts furnished by her. Were a complete lie off. It's literally written right here on this f. b. i. File my wife is a complete moral chicken. Oh clapback on your sexist. May you know where. I'm going all of the information. He had all of the details that she had it and it was just about that one murder and they couldn't get her to confess about any of the others. What if he didn't rape anybody during the others. She's being petty like another chick in the car. While i was right there..

"With the first time she was arrested Her and her husband were both for car theft. Because it was like a bonnie and clyde situation they were like still incarcerated and shit and so win while she was in custody she made that first confession the next time they were talking about charging her and she gave like the more detailed confession. She said that she had been with. You'll when he killed. James martin and petiot booker on april fourteenth. Okay so they had had a few beers in texarkana and then they drove down to lovers lane and parked after midnight on april fourteenth and they drove past them two hundred feet past the car and had got out of their car and walked back to the martin's car. Her husband had a thirty two automatic in one hand and glove in the other. They took the boy and girl out of the car and they made them get in their car which was stolen plymouth and drove them. Approximately one fourth of a mile from the automobile. When swinney made martin get out of the car and climb over the fence after which he shot him in the face. Mrs sweaty held. The girl in the car swinney returned and they drove down the road and turned around and when they came pass the spot where martin had been. They observed him staggering down the road whereupon sweaty stopped. The car went up to where he was standing and shot him again. Then they proceeded down the road driving. I up one side and then down the other where twenty made his wife leave the car for approximately thirty minutes where she claimed in this time he raped. Betty jo booker. And here's the crazy thing like we were talking about the facts that was never released to the public that she was ranked even in the several years after this like they were holding their cards close to them so that they could try to find the person who did this and she should not have known that mariah certain i still can't think of the right words for you're a precious gentle creature. You should be a virgin in this. This era be verging on you get. That should be the only man that you're with. There is a certain shame to being raped and like your family. Your family your father. Your husband would not wanna know that sort of it tastes to them. It would taint your. You know what i mean the marks you leave behind in the world like someone else has been with you that it's a very personal and hurtful shameful thing. Yes i'm like we know. Now it is not shameful. There's no shame you know it's just different. It's different is a different world. Say that they thought that way. But you're right about their cards close to buy. Let's find out if you're if you're telling us the truth because like you said. They had so many fakes. Come forward like sure. And i was like you know and how do you know it and also. I think that it's weird for a woman to just out like you're if you're making this up. Why would you confess to your husband. Raping someone whether he did or not heavy on the husband part terrible. I don't know. I think that there's is a very real possibility that these two did it. You know what i mean. And i mean. This was just a decade after bonnie and clyde. Yeah they were murdered may twenty third nineteen thirty four so yeah to decade. After i mean they've they've told on mike every show how bonnie and clyde inspired replicas but also bonnie and clyde did not roll on each other on this sand. Yeah exactly are you down or are not bombing. Linpac or you varies gangsters walker limp. Those of you don't know. But i don't know. I think that's really strange that this isn't information. That was available to her. She just like earn it. Yeah in whole fence. Thank like they weren't found anywhere near offense. Like why would you. Why would you know that detail. No but the thing was about that case is that they actually had found that spot. That was off Where they had found like a patch of grass had blood and stuff on it where it looked like there were a struggle but they couldn't they didn't know that for sure because it was so far away from the the rest of the crime scene like but how would she know that exactly like if you if you wanted me if i wanted to confess enroll on my husband and tell but i'm making it up. Pretend i'm making it up. All i know is like where the bodies were literally in my head. I would just be like we pulled up on him. They were in the car. Do da da and we pretended we needed help like we had a flat and so the guy got out of the people in my husband attacked him and i held her down and then he came and shot her to you. Know what i mean. That's the i wouldn't say. They ran off towards the fence. That's very accurate. Yeah that's all that's really detailed and away from where your mind would think the struggle happened if you didn't know if they're found to walk the road than you you know what i'm saying. It's easy to just put blinders on august. We'll and then on top of that like after. She tells the police that he made her get out of the car for thirty minutes so that he can rape this poor woman. She says she was state close enough to the car that she could actually hear the girl screaming the whole time. She said that to the police. Why would you say that. Then she says upon return to the car. They drove down the side of the road and swinney had missed booker. Get out of the car and they walked her to a wooded area whereupon miss when he heard two shots coming from the wooded area swinney then drove his car to an area and finally stopped in a secluded area where he changed clothes because the clothes he was wearing had blood on them. This is straight from the file. It's to be pointed out that at the place designated by mrs swinney as to where the clothes were changed is the same point where the martin boys address book was found. After changing his clothes. They drove down the road with the martin. Boyce car was parked and twenty. Got a black case from the back. Seat of the martin boyce car. which is they. Were assuming the saxophone and couldn't yeah and put it in the back of his car. Then they return to texarkana.

"So he did play pretty loose and fast with the facts. There's like a lot of stabbings and stuff in there which obviously never happened. He embellishes the killings. And stuff you knew for shock. Value is seventies. He just put in what he really wishes he did. I'm not done with you charles. Then in two thousand fourteen bloom house media released a like kind of sequel a name. Yeah and i watched the first fifteen minutes of that too. And i couldn't do that one either. It's it's also super cringe. Like feel free out there to watch it and call me big fat liar. But i'm just saying and what's pretty cool though. Is that the town that dreaded sundown the or the original was actually filmed there in texarkana like on location. And the lead wilson. Everything there were actually cast as extras and they have this thing now. Where every single year. Halloween they play the movie like uh movie in the park. Or whatever. It's screen on this big screen right out by the lake where they parked out. That's so sweet. Like the mossman promptly mount pleasant and apparently. That's right right. We're one of the murders took place so merit all embrace your local freak freakshow folks. I guess so i. You know what's crazy to me. I mean like. I understand how cases from the forty fifty sixty seventy s are still unsolved and stuff. But like when you get into the two thousand and up. I'm like very confused as to why we have so many missing people. Why are there so many unsolved cases because you think how many humans are on the face of the planet and not one person has walked across. It's one of these missing. People displays my mind. But like that's that is the thing that is why. I'm so hyper vigilant. Whenever we share that people are missing. I try to cram down people's throats. Like get the fuck and hint. If i if i meet a lady named gertrude tomorrow and hang out with her for six hours and let her go on her own. Merry way maybe. We even have lunch together. Fuck them. I suppose to know to call that in if i don't know she's missing in the first place he yeah. Yeah you're not wrong have got. That's the thing like plenty of people might have saw you but how many people know you're missing. How many people know they needed to see you. There were supposed to see you that day. You know like yeah. That's what kills me and there are so many of them so so many but officially this case is still unsolved is charles i You've reached the end of our episode. We hate the things like this happen. Not only around the world but in our own backyards.

"The i know that the very first attacks no one was raped and no one was murdered. The second attacks you have rape murder and then the third tax you have rape-murder and actually i believe that in these files somewhere. I read that the third The third attacks someone and i. I'm sorry i can't remember which one it was but one of them was actually What do they call it. Abused with the handgun. Yeah i think that was the second one is sexually assaulted with a handgun or something. Yeah yeah i just mentioned is being petty are talking about that specific murder and not the other attacks because that's the one where she was around for. She mentioned the girl being raped. Actually just put something in my brain. What if that's the only one she was there for. Yeah what if. He did the others on his own. This lady is already accomplished a murder. So you've got a wrap your mind around the fact that she's not like yeah. Have you ever heard of divorce. Oh god back into new.

"You know it was so nice and quiet. I never would have guessed. We hear that how many times in true crime shows or movies? But this is where. I for me it gets problematic because on the other hand. Openly telling the public that there are no leads and giving citizens agency to report their neighbor for so much as. Giving them an off look during. A mass panic isn't exactly a more effective tactic. The gazette could have saved time and printing ink by simply running the headline witch hunt for masked man is a go people like. Kind of unleashed a witch hunt. People lost their shit. In Texarkana in nineteen, forty, six everybody knew each other folks rarely locked their doors even at night actually and May of nineteen, forty six. Of that changed. Residents. Not only locked their doors but straight up barricaded. Both the doors and even nailed sheets and other blockades to their windows. curfews went into effect hardcore, which resulted in a loss of revenue for a few local businesses locksmiths however, and gun retailers. They were making a killing because everybody was. Bringing up, they were super their security and they were packing. By May Ninth Guard dogs became super popular citizens, barricaded themselves in their homes or opted for stays at hotels or with relatives because safety numbers, some residents went so far as to build this kind of makes me laugh homemade booby trapped around their homes. So, basically, Texarkana residents were jittery paranoid packing heat. It's safe to say tensions were running high in town. And local police departments were inundated with calls from terrified residents convinced that they were in danger on Friday may tenth police rushed to investigate a claim of strange sounds coming from an upstairs room only to find the family cat thrashing around in a trash bin. A report of a prowler bumping up against a house turned out to actually be a hedge hitting the window in the wind would blow one family actually called the cops because they heard a tapping on their front door and that actually did turn out to be a legit. It was a messenger who had been trying to deliver a special letter. I am you're singing telegram. Reference Gaza. Clear. Reference people you get one hundred points if you got that so anyway. The overall lack of consistent facts didn't help matters clearly. So getting back to those the bullets that were found at the starks crime scene. That Killed Virgil starks those were actually twenty two caliber bullets most likely to have been shot by an automatic rifle. Betty Jo Booker Paul Martin Richard Griffith and Paul. Lan more were all killed with bullets from thirty two automatic Colt pistol. Similarly. The first victims were all in their teens or twenties as mentioned, and we're considered lovers lane victims. As they were all found, you know park and along secluded roads in contrast, the starks were attacked in their home, which again was about ten miles northeast of Texarkana. But Age wise they were older than the Phantoms, previous victims and attacked with a murder weapon that was inconsistent with all the previous attacks So over the years. A number of people have been added to and then scratched off the possible phantom suspect list There was just not anyone definitive piece of evidence that justified case. Alone conviction. The police also had their share of enthusiastic tipsters whose leads either fizzled out. Or. Lead to dead ends. And the influx of calls from imposters giving false confessions only exacerbated officers who were required to look into every lead. So just imagine just chasing false leads all over when there's some maniac running around how frustrating There is spread wildly about the phantom killer's identity many in the area believe that the killer was some sort of sex maniac nearly four hundred people in total were arrested in connection with the killings though no right though no conviction was ever made. Sounds like the population of Texarkana Bright. Everyone's a suspect. So. Possible. Suspects included the likes of a University of Arkansas freshmen who committed suicide in nineteen forty eight. Or an escaped German prisoner of war. And in L. A. Resident who believed that he may have committed the crimes while he was in a coma. viable. Suspects all. Many locals however believed the Phantom to be and I've heard this pronounce a few as so I'm GonNa go with you'll swinney. who was a local conman who was arrested in nineteen, forty seven for auto theft his wife actually confessed to as much at the time but later repudiated her confession swinney remained in prison as a habitual offender until nineteen seventy-three. When he and then he died in nineteen ninety-four without ever implicating himself in the murders. So I kind of feel like that. One's kind of a loss because. Regardless. Of the killers show identity, the town he traumatized has never been the same since the spring of Nineteen, forty six clearly. Yet while other towns may have tried to forget such gruesome legacy Texarkana braces it when the town that dreaded sundown was filmed there in nineteen seventy six. Yes they filmed it their in town locals were cast as. Extras. The movie itself has done is kind of a documentary piece like in that style, but you can very much tell that a lot of the people are extras. It's quite the worth a watch and then every year around Halloween the they screen the movie around Spring Lake Park near where one of the murders took place. If you'd rather not travel to Texarkana to see the town had turned it sundown. You can watch it from the comfort of your own home, the movies currently streaming on the.

"Welcome fours talk or we're not really horse we just like word play. Hello everyone, and welcome to Horace Talk Hor I'm Sharon and I'm Melinda. Welcome to part two of Mindy Sharon's redemption episode as a Quick Refresher Sharon, and I both bombed a trivia question our one year anniversary Trivia episode a couple of weeks ago. That asked for the name of the serial killer who inspired the movie scream for the record. We now know it's Danny Rolling Aka, the GAINESVILLE ripper but we didn't know at the time and given our previous episode about killers inspired horror movies or were inspired by horror movies. Add that are damaged pride. We decided to cover two cases that neither Sharon nor I had really researched or heard that much about before. Last week in our part one episode Sharon did kick ass job covering the Keti murders from nineteen eighty. Thank you. You're very welcome that supposedly inspired the film the strangers if you're wondering, why said supposedly that probably means you haven't heard it. So I highly recommend giving it a listen because it is a doozy crazy interesting and straight up just plain crazy story but it's awesome and thank you Sharon for setting such a high bar because this week it's my turn and I have a lot to live up to. So they here. Yeah. Thank you. Well. Gather around children and let me tell you the horrifying mystery of the nineteen forty six Texarkana murderers which inspired the one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, six, horror classic the town that dreaded sundown. I share some of the resources that I used when falling down this rabbit hole and there are many. Let me tell you. They're the lineup dot. com. Our friend Wikipedia. TAXES MONTHLY DOT com in the culture section. There is I didn't dig into it, but there is a whole right. Sub Right at about these murders. So if you're into that, go for it medium dot com, and then Arkansas online.com which just this past February twenty twenty actually did a recent article about these murders. Will talk a little bit about that, but it's interesting. So keep that in mind like with Sharon's Keti Research, this case became more and more complex the more I dug in for time insanity sake I decided to focus strictly on the murderers and the victims themselves. And not. Really get too caught up in the weeds. Trust me when I say that there is a plethora of sources out there on the interwebs and I highly recommend looking into them. The ones I mentioned don't even scratch the surface but full disclosure. This case does have a lot of speculation and I'm not a trained detective. So apologies in advance. For any errors in research or whatnot there's a lot to keep straight and We really won't have time to get into the whole thing with deep dive but as always, we fully respect the victims and families involved and wish any remaining survivors or relatives of survivors. Well, we hope that you have lived a good life that said, let's dig in. The Texarkana Moonlight murders as they became known. Where a series of unsolved murderers and other violent crimes committed in and around Texarkana in the spring of nineteen forty, six by an unidentified serial killer known as the quote Phantom killer or sometimes known as the Phantom slayer. The killer is credited with attacking eight people within ten weeks five of whom were killed. That timeframe during which the attacks took place was at least to. An outside observer like myself years later, relatively short. The killings all happened between February twenty second and may third of nineteen, forty six. So roughly like ten weeks in total, the victims were mostly all in their teens or twenties, and they attacks typically occurred on secluded country roads. So places that you know young would go to park and neck in the woods. comes. In. One, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, speak these areas were referred to quote. Lovers Lanes so wink wink nudge nudge. You'll hear that term brought up again and again it means make out spot. For for younger listeners the details of the crimes which I'm going to get into may sound familiar to a lot of you, and that's because the Texarkana murderers stories have been cited as inspiration for countless urban legends, and of course, slasher films most famously the town beds sundown that I mentioned and there was a sequel that followed but. Whatever the name of the film though references to early curfews that were enforced during that ten week period in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, six, when the killer was walking amongst the normal Peaceful Community of Texarkana and needless to say everyone was scared shitless and rightly. So what's more unsettling about this at least is that the case still technically remains unsolved seventy years later. So in total five people were actually murdered by this unknown killer while three others survive their attacks. Two of the three that survived were the first to be attacked by the phantom killer and I'm going to refer to him as that for going forward just for clarity's sake That's a name that he. or She I guess the killer earned by a witness testimony stating that he wore a white mask or sack with holes cut out for is so the first attack was on February twenty second of Nineteen forty-six. Jimmy, Hollis and Mary Jean Lari parked their car on a secluded road outside of town. They were avid astrologists. I'm totally kidding they were making out there totally making out the phantom killer approached the car initially blinding them with his flashlight and then ordering them out of the vehicle by gun point Jimmy. was told to drop his pants and was subsequently beaten severely by the Phantom so much so that his skull was actually fractured the Phantom then told Mary Jean to run. But as she headed towards a ditch, he told her to run for the main road and. Probably should have said this at the beginning trigger warning for violence. All throughout this piece but right now, especially, the Phantom actually chased Mary Jean down the road caught up to her sexually assaulted her with the pistol that he'd had on him before letting her runaway a second time. So clearly from the start, this guy seemed to enjoy torturing his victims. Astonishingly despite such savage attacks both Jimmy and Mary Jean Survived Lau. Yeah. I know in the wee hours of Sunday march twenty fourth. So a little over a month later. Richard Griffin and pauline more were found dead in their parked oldsmobile sedan. You guessed it the end of a secluded road. the following is from an article titled Phantom Killer the unsolved mystery of the Texarkana murders written by Oren, Gray, for lineup.
