The freeways of 1970's America were a dangerous place for hitchhiker's, with some young girls hitching a ride only never to be heard from again. However, these were not the victims of choice for one such sexual predator, who used the Washington Freeways as his dumping grounds. The serial killer known as the Freeway Phantom would abduct his young African-American victims from residential areas, usually near convenience stores and then dump their remains along the freeway. By November 1972, the killer had claimed the lives of six young women and girls, who had all been viciously strangled, in one case stabbed and all raped. Despite a strong police investigation, no suspects were ever charged with the murders and the case would remain unsolved.
