THE DEACON OF DEATH--Samuel Smithers
Being someone interested in true crime, you always think you can spot a creeper from a mile away, correct? Maybe he’s driving a creeper van, or gives off some other hint that he’s a weirdo—but what if he looks like an everyday, middle-class American guy? And he’s a deacon at your church, with a wife and a family? Maybe you’re still on guard, you know, considering BTK was a similar type—but most people are fooled. Just like the victims in the story today—they thought they knew their killer enough to trust him. That was their first mistake.
