  1. He is all 3 serial killers?!?!

  2. Just one minor correction – Robert Baxter Bowman was convicted in the murder of Eileen Adams.

    • Thanks for posting this. Bowmans DNA was actually linked to Eileen Adams by tests done on his daughter in 2006 which aided the charges against Bowman. People need to know the facts.
