Delve into a world of cold cases, serial killers and false confessions pulled straight from the archives of the San Diego Police Department. From a rash of attacks in Balboa Park to the slayings of two police officers that remain unsolved to this day, detectives have investigated several vexing and violent cases over the years. In 1931, the murder of ten-year-old Virginia Brooks was initially linked to serial slayer Gordon Stewart Northcott, later hanged for his crimes, while the mysterious death of young Dalbert Aposhian languished for seventy-two years before modern forensics closed it. Join author Steve Willard as he pulls back the curtain on San Diego’s dark side.
