50 years ago on July 14, 1966, Richard Speck brutally murdered eight student nurses in their Chicago town house.

One young nurse miraculously survived by hiding under a bed.

The barbarity of the attack shocked the nation and introduced a new term to american history: mass murderer.

The newly updated book “The Crime of the Century: Richard Speck and the Murders That Shocked a Nation” tells the story of that night, while offering new insights into the aftermath.
