There was a murder on the losse, a serial killer and rapist. "The Full Moon Maniac" -- that was what the ARMITAGE ADVERTISER called him, although only one of his attacks had occurred exactly on a night of a full moon -- who had struck three times in the past eighteen months. He preyed on couples in lovers' lanes, locking the man in the trunk of a car while he forced the woman to commit what the ADVERTISER called "unnatural acts." On the last occasion, a young man named John Evans had been shot to death. . . .
