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.
William Martin, co-author of the book and the lead prosecutor in the Richard Speck case joined us to talk about it.
