A man creeps in through the window at night. Nothing will save you. Not being a man, not being a woman. Not being old and not being young. He may slit your throat, shoot you, or beat you to death with a baseball bat. He is Tommy Lynn Sells, the self-titled ‘Coast to Coast Killer’.
In this first of a three part series, we cover the sad and terrible events of Sells’ early life. From his abusive childhood to his disturbing adolescence, Jack and J. J. give the details on what may have made this monster.
