Update 3 p.m. — The answer is Mindhunter! Rissill is a major focus in the fourth episode of the show’s first season.
In honor of last night’s Port City’s serial killer trivia contest, the week’s trivia involves a serial killing in Alexandria in the 1970s.
Between August 1976 and March 1977, Montie Rissell (warning: the answer is in the link) murdered five women in Alexandria. Rissill was sentenced to five consecutive life sentences, which he is currently serving at the Pocahontas State Correctional Center.
One aspect of Rissell’s case was featured in a television show in 2017. One woman Rissell abducted told him that her father had cancer and Rissell, whose brother had cancer, let the woman go.
