‘In Cold Blood’ killers linked to unsolved 1959 Florida murders
OSPREY, FLA. -- At the end of 1959, two families of four — one in Kansas, the other in Florida — were brutally murdered.
Two men were arrested, charged and executed in the Kansas case, and writer Truman Capote captured the horrific tale in his book, “In Cold Blood.”
The Florida murder of two parents and two children remains unsolved.
Now, a detective is trying to prove that Perry Smith and Richard Hickock, who were executed for the Kansas murders, also were responsible for the Florida killings of Cliff and Christine Walker and their children.
