He’s one of the most brutal serial killers of the modern era, who built a torture chamber inside his own house.
He’s Maury Travis – a twisted man who taunted the police and took delight in physically and mentally torturing his victims.
Between 2000 and 2002, Travis targeted Black women addicted to drugs who frequented an area known as "The Stroll" in St. Louis, Missouri.
