Albert Desalvo said he committed all the Strangler murders, but he would never be tried for those crimes. Instead, he would stand trial for his crimes as the Green Man. DeSalvos wily lawyer, F. Lee Bailey, used DeSalvos violent history and his reputation as the Boston Strangler to assert that his client was not guilty by reason of legal insanity. In this episode, well follow the prosecution and defense as they attempt to sway the jury, and we'll hear chilling trial excerpts. Well also learn how one popular '50s television sitcom may have given Albert DeSalvo the rationale he needed to invade the homes of hundredsperhaps thousands of women.
