Body of confessed ‘Strangler’ to be exhumed

Albert H. DeSalvo’s body will be exhumed to allow for new forensic testing that may conclusively prove DeSalvo murdered Mary Sullivan in her Boston apartment in 1964, the last killing that attributed to the Boston Strangler who terrorized Boston for two years in the early ‘60s. A DNA match has been made between DeSalvo, the self-confessed Boston Strangler, and the murder of 19-year-old Sullivan, who was raped and murdered in her Charles Street home. The DNA testing showed a “familial match” between forensic evidence in Sullivan’s killing, leading prosecutors to ask for a Suffolk Superior Court judge to order DeSalvo’s remains be dug up to prove that “once and for all” he murdered Sullivan.
