This Week In '66


With Lynn Peril

This is the week in 1966 when eight young women, six student nurses and two visiting exchange nurses from the Philippines, were murdered by a madman in Chicago. You can read about him elsewhere; here we're going to talk about the victims. Also in the news this week: a pair of May-December marriages draw comparisons.
