When three young girls were murdered in the early 1970s the community of Rochester, New York searched for answers. Out of all the similarities between their murders, one detail stood out; the girls all had alliterative names. Carmen Colon, Wanda Walkowitz and Michelle Meanza were all in their pre-teens when they were murdered and after the murder of Michelle, the strange child murders seemed to end. It wouldn’t be until a decade later and on the west coast that similar murders would start to occur. These murders would continue the strange pattern of victims with double initial names with two of the victims sharing the same name, Carmen Colon. Are these two separate serial murders connected or is the pattern a mere coincidence?
