Angel Maturino Resendez is described by most who know him as a quiet, polite, soft-spoken man, a loving husband and father to a baby daughter. But law enforcement officials suspect that he might be responsible for upwards of eight grisly and random killings in a span of two years, all of which occurred near the southwest railroad line that the killer is believed to have ridden on his twisted murder spree. In each case, the same mode of attack–resulting in the same slow and painful death–appears to have been used, pointing to the methodical slayings of a serial killer. Is Angel Maturino Resendez the ruthless Railroad Killer–a sadistic slayer who led police on one of the longest manhunts in history? Bestselling true crime author Wensley Clarkson digs deep into the heart of a horrifying murder case to uncover some stunning answers.
