Episode 68: The Kensington Strangler

On December 9, 2010, a headline in the Philadelphia daily news read “For Hookers, fear of attack is a constant companion.” Hookers.  This headline reduced them to nothing more than their jobs, something I doubt would have happened if they were administrative assistants, retail associates, corporate executives.

These women worked the stroll, a section of Kensington Avenue in Philadelphia under the L train near one of the worst sections of North Philadelphia, and they were being hunted.  By the time that article was published, two women had been murdered.  They were raped, strangled and left alone in trash ridden vacant lots.  A few weeks later a third body was found. Someone way preying on the women in Kensington, watching them, watching and waiting to choose his next victim.  This is the story of Elaine Goldberg, Nicole Piacentini and Casey Mahoney, three young women who were victims of the Kensington Strangler.
