Nephew of 'Boston Strangler' Victim Believes DeSalvo Was Killer
For decades, Casey Sherman, the nephew of the Boston Strangler's last victim, doubted that Albert DeSalvo was the man who killed his aunt, Mary Sullivan. Sullivan lived in an apartment on Charles Street and was 19-years-old when she was raped and killed in 1964.
But, after a recent investigation revealed that there was a likely match between DeSalvo's DNA and that which was found on Sullivan's body at the crime scene, Sherman told Greater Boston that the turn of events has changed his mind.
