Behind The Curtain welcomes retired police detective John A. Cameron for a discussion on the most notorious serial killer you've never heard of—Edward Wayne Edwards, who allegedly killed scores of people over a sixty-six-year period and was never caught (for murder). Cameron described Edwards' tragic childhood, noting that he was born in 1933 at the height of the Great Depression, raised by an aunt while his mother served out her prison term, and eventually placed into an orphanage at age five. "By time he's eight years old... he's been sexual abused by the older boys, beaten by nuns for bedwetting, and turns into a psychopathic monster," Cameron revealed.

Edwards' experiences at the orphanage destroyed him spiritually, compelling him to rebel against Catholicism and embrace Satanism and the teachings of occultist Aleister Crowley, Cameron continued. At age eleven Edwards was a full-fledged sadomasochist and had committed three gruesome murders in the Chicago area, he added. Cameron said he connected Edwards to the Chicago 'Lipstick' murders after tying him to a series of 'Lovers Lane' killings in Great Falls, Montana in 1956. Edwards left behind messages at the Chicago murder scenes that appeared to have been written by a young person and was smart enough to steer the evidence toward an innocent person, he explained.
