Truth and Lies: The Boston Strangler

Truth and Lies: The Boston Strangler

Thirteen victims. An inconclusive investigation. Sixty years later, the story of the Boston Strangler still has a hold on the public imagination. “Truth and Lies: The Boston Strangler” retraces the tragic fate of the victims and explores why a killer’s confession never closed this decades-old case. Last season, “Truth and Lies: The Informant" told the story of an ordinary man who was recruited by the FBI to stop a domestic terror attack. Season 1 covered the rise and fall of the notorious sex offender and financier Jeffrey Epstein and told the stories of women who fought to bring Epstein to justice.
