Serial Killer: Carlton Gary “The Stocking Strangler”

remembering the victims

Victims
Marion Fisher, 40 (1975)
Gertrude Miller, (9/11/1977) – survived
Mary Fern Jackson, 60 (9/15/1977)
Jean Dimenstein, 71 (9/24/1977)
Ruth Schieble, 89 (10/21/1977)
Martha Thurmond, (10/25/1977)
Kathleen Woodruff, 74 (12/28/1977)
Ruth Schwob, (2/11/1978) – survived
Mildred Borom, 78 (2/12/1978)
Janet Cofer, 61 (4/19/1978)

I will admit that the DNA evidence issue has confused me, so forgive me if I am wrong. I understand that the DNA on 2 victims did not match Carlton Gary. However, those victims were not murdered, so that should not affect his death sentence. Also, the DNA on Jean Dimenstein DID match Carlton Gary. I do not think there was DNA for the others, but I am not sure. If I am mistaken on any of this, please let me know, but please, be respectful and stick to the issues. Do NOT bring the race issue up. I will not approve comments about any of that. Please read my comment policy. I will not approve comments that violate it. And please, as always, REMEMBER THE VICTIMS. They are the important ones.

  1. My mother’s friend almost went crazy being involved in this case. He aunt was the last victim of Gary Carlton. It was and is still a horrible nightmare for that family!
