When a Colorado man advertises for a new roommate, he unwittingly attracts the attention of a profoundly sadistic murderer. Investigators attempt to identify the most difficult kind of killer to catch in this episode of Last Seen Alive.
Oakey “Al” Kite was 53 years old when he was tortured and murdered in his home in Aurora, CO. His killer’s true name and whereabouts are unknown.
Al’s killer left these items soaking in a sink full of bleach, which destroyed the DNA evidence he’d left when he’d touched them.
