    VA - Virginia Beach Serial Killer (3 part series)


    Janice Pietropola was raped, strangled, and shot. Beverly Christensen was stabbed in her home, and Alice Eskew was beaten and strangled.

    Someone killed these women, and at least nine more, at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.

    "There was a tremendous amount of violence that took place inside a little cottage," said a retired detective.


    Now, nearly three decades later, the families are getting what they've asked for. Virginia Beach cold-case detectives confirm what the women's relatives believed all along. At the very least, Joanne and Christine died under mysterious circumstances. At worst it was murder.

    Years ago, cold-case detectives quietly reopened the investigation. Now, working with NewsChannel 3, they're digging deeper into the files hoping to find out who killed the women, and why.

    "They couldn't get what they wanted, so they ran them over," said Det. Tucker.

    Wow. I used to work with Christensen's boyfriend. Obviously this was decades later. When he told me about it I looked up the case, but I didn't realize it was one in a series of them. Very sad.

    The Locked Room
    Just a thought:
    In September 2012, Kathleen Haley went missing from her home in Newport News.
    Newport News is about a 45 minute drive from Virginia Beach.
    "All your life, all your love, all your hate, all your memory, all your pain, it was all the same thing. It was all the same dream—a dream that you had inside a locked room. A dream about being a person.” - True Detective
