In Houston, Texas, on a Sunday morning in spring, Coral Eugene Watts trapped two young women in their apartment. Only hours before, he'd killed another woman by drowning her in her bathtub. As Watts attempted to do the same to 20-year-old Lori Lister, her roommate made a daring escape, leading to Watts's arrest.
Watts confessed to thirteen murders, but with no direct evidence, he managed to plea bargain his sentence down to 60 years for burglary. Through the untiring efforts of investigators and the mother of one of his victims, Watts was finally convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison, where he remained the prime suspect in dozens of other slayings.
Experts theorized that Watts may have slain more than Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and John Wayne Gacy . . . combined Bestselling author Corey Mitchell takes us inside the twisted mind of "The Sunday Morning Slasher" and tells the chilling story of how he almost got away with murder.
