Police are looking for DNA evidence to determine once and for all whether Albert DeSalvo really was the Boston Strangler, the sadist who killed 13 women in a string of attacks that terrorized the city in the early 1960s. DeSalvo admitted to the murders, which took place from 1962 to 1964, but police lacked the evidence to bring the factory worker to trial.
