Earle Nelson was arrested in Canada but had escaped jail.

He had set the record for being the first American serial sex killer of the twentieth century. His capture wasn’t easy due to the reason that he moved around, changed his name, and the police at that point in time were not well educated on the way a serial killer thinks and acts.

In my opinion from reading the conviction of Hiawatha Robinson case, I honestly think that he was guilty of the murder of his 8- year old daughter Hiawayi. The FBI and police had gathered so much information on Hiawatha that they could finally charge him of 1st degree murder of his daughter.
