Southern Nightmare: The Hunt for the South Side Strangler is a new true-crime podcast, launching on May 30th. Richmond journalist Richard Foster working with Style Weekly magazine and WRIR 97.3 FM Richmond Independent Radio will be diving into a serial killer that terrorized Richmond.
The killer was active 30 years ago and was the first murderer in U.S. history caught using DNA evidence. Not knowing how the Podcast is going to present the information I’ll just give the link to the Wikipedia article and this YouTube Documentary which will give you more details.
Tonight will be your chance to get a preview of the podcast. Richard Foster will be at Grace E. Harris Hall at VCU interviewing a retired Richmond Homicide Detective that worked the case. The discussion begins at 7 PM. The event is free and open to the public, doors open at 6:45 PM.
