#6 The Murder of Margaret 'Peg' Cuttino and The Story of 'Junior' Pierce - The Serial Killer Who Wasn't

Mar 11, 04:06 AM
The week before Christmas, in 1971, thirteen-year-old Peg Cuttino was kidnapped and murdered in rural Sumter County, South Carolina. Her murder would go unsolved, for months, until the arrest of a serial killer, responsible for the deaths of eight other men and women during a seven-month killing spree.

On a brand new, very special episode of THIS WEEK IN MURDER, we investigate the tragic deaths of Peg Cuttino and every other victim of the man we've dubbed America's Most Forgotten Serial Killer.

But what if almost everything we do know about the case, is a lie? What if Peg Cuttino's real killer was never caught? And what if America's Most Forgotten Serial Killer never killed at all?
