Between 1971 and 1973, Rochester, New York, was shocked to its core when three little girls were brutally raped and murdered. Residents there noted that the first name and surname of each girl started with the same initial, and the killings became known as "The Alphabet Murders" or "The Double Initial Murders."

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss this case that has baffled the public and law enforcement for close to 50 years. Carmen Colon, Wanda Walkowicz, and Michelle Maenza were killed in the early 1970s but they have not been forgotten. The authorities have had a few suspects in the murders over the years but, so far, no one has paid for the deaths of these three little girls. Can police finally solve this case using new DNA technology?
