Anna Slesers, 55, is found dead in her Boston apartment, strangled by the cord on her bathrobe. Her death is the first attributed to the Boston Strangler. In 1965, Albert DeSalvo would confess to killing Slesers and a dozen other women, though the ensuing years would see doubt cast as to whether he had committed all the crimes.
