The Phantom Killer

The Phantom Killer

Over a period of 10 weeks in 1946, five people were killed and another three survived the attack by a man in the tiny town of Texarkana on the Texas-Arkansas border. He was named “The Phantom Killer” because of his disturbing white mask, which was just a sack with holes for eyes. He beat his victims and made them run away. He would then chase them and shoot them. The townspeople armed themselves and a curfew was instated. The killer was never found and the murders remain unsolved.
