Patricia Walsh and Mary Anne Wysocki went to Cape Cod for a weekend away on January 24th, 1969. When they didn’t return home afterwards, their friends and family were very concerned. The police initially thought the girls had just taken off travelling on an adventure, as many young people were doing at the time.

The police had also failed to investigate the disappearance of other young women in the area for this reason. They didn’t realise until it was too late that they had a serial killer on their hands. All the murdered young women were last seen with 24-year-old carpenter, ladies man and massive drug pig Tony Costa
