 The 16-year-old was lucky. She at least survived her encounter with Dayton Leroy Rogers to detail its horrors. But a long list of other women were not as fortunate. Their stories had to be painstakingly pieced together by police from the corpses on the most shocking trail of terror ever left by a serial killer.

The Man Who Loved to Kill Women--Dayton Leroy Rogers was known in Portland, Oregon as a respected businessman and devoted husband and father. But at night he abducted women, forced them into sadistic bondage games, and thrilled in their pain, terror and mutilation. His murderous spree was stopped only after, in plain view, he slashed to death his final victim...and when a hunter accidentally stumbled onto the burial grounds of seven other women Rogers had killed one-by-one in the depths of the Molalla Forest did police realize they were dealing with a killer whose bloodlust knew no bounds. This is the shocking true story of the horrifying crimes, capture, and conviction of Dayton Leroy Rogers, Oregon's mild-mannered businessman by day--vicious serial killer by night.
