In 1931, a woman and her three young children left their home in Chicago, en route to a new life with a man who promised a home, affection and security. Three weeks later they were found dead —— buried in a ditch in a small West Virginia town. . . and they were not alone.

This is a story that transfixed an entire nation for months; a story that came to be immortalized in a classic Hollywood film (Night of the Hunter, starring Robert Mitchum); and even as it has faded into obscurity, its effect echoes even still —— every time the news media latches on to a serial killer in an attempt to profitize from scaring the living hell out of you.

The newspapers screamed, "ROMEO MUST HANG!" Rest assured, he did.
