Summary
The inside story of a serial killer who abducted, raped, and murdered women and hid their bodies in his home'completely unbeknownst to his neighbors In the late 1990s in Poughkeepsie, New York, prostitutes began to go missing off the streets of the old Hudson River town. Due to the women's nomadic lifestyles, which many people condemned, few in the town noticed they were gone besides their families and Lieutenant Bill Siegrist. Siegrist suspected that a serial killer was behind the disappearances. Local prostitutes described to him a strange man lurking around, leading Siegrist to Kendall Francois, an overweight, slovenly middle school hall monitor nicknamed Stinky. Police brought in Francois for a lie detector test, which he passed, and they were forced to release him. Area women continued to disappear. In a shocking twist of fate, Francois was finally arrested when a woman he had raped managed to escape from his house and run into a roadblock set up by Siegrist. She led the police back to Francois's home, and the hall monitor soon gave a full confession and cut a deal with the prosecution. By then, cops in Tyvek suits had already found 8 bodies concealed in the attic and crawl space of Francois's house of horrors. To this day, 1 victim is still missing
