Fred Rosen follows a killer’s path again in time 2 a long time to find how a monster slipped throughout the criminal device When police in Tampa, Florida, arrested Larry Singleton in 1997 for brutally murdering prostitute Roxanne Hayes, they quickly learned it wasn’t the person’s first violent assault. Back in 1978 he had received notoriety as "the Mad Chopper" for raping and slicing off the hands of 15-year-old Mary Vincent on a patch of desolate, sun-scorched land five miles off the freeway close to Modesto, California. When Singleton used to be set free of jail on supervised parole after serving best eight years for his crimes, no group in California would settle for him. He ultimately moved again to his house in Florida, the place he killed Hayes just about 20 years after his unique crime. But his first sufferer, Vincent, had survived, strolling just about a mile to get lend a hand after the attack, and testified in opposition to him at his trial for murdering Hayes.
