Missing from Michigan Ave : The Case of John Eric Armstrong

In late 1999, women began disappearing from Detroit’s thriving areas of prostitution. The following spring of 2000, when the bodies of three of them were discovered on a seedy stretch of railroad tracks in the southwest part of town, police realized there was a serial killer operating in the Motor City. And though it was a quick arrest – just a couple days later – police at first had no idea just how far and wide the horrors of this crime extended. As the perp began to talk, and he revealed detail after detail, it became all too clear that the case of John Eric Armstrong could span the country. And even the globe. Longtime author and journalist B.R. Bates takes you through the crimes and investigation that followed, collaborating with the commanding officer of the Violent Crime Section that investigated the Armstrong case in Detroit, Dr. Gerald Cliff. Informed by interviews of victim family members, numerous law enforcement, and others touched by the crimes, as well as a wealth of documentation from the case, Missing from Michigan Ave is a chronicle of a killer with a reach that still remains largely unknown.
