The Town That Dreaded Sundown — The Texarkana Moonlight Murders

Texas and Arkansas meet in Texarkana, a sleepy town. From the spring of 1946 to the summer of 1947, Texarkana’s citizens lived in fear of a murderous serial killer. Residents in Texarkana still get a chill just thinking about the “Texarkana Moonlight Murders.”

Young couples were generally the targets of this assassin; but in their final attack, a middle-aged couple was slain in their own farmhouse by this murderer. It is still unclear who the Phantom Killer is despite the emergence of many theories and suspects.
