The Lipstick Murders - Serial Killer William Heirens

"The Lipstick Murders" were a series of brutal attacks which occurred near Chicago in the mid 1940s. Though a serial burglar named William Heirens confessed to the murders, he later recanted his confession on the grounds that it was forced by the Chicago PD. With very little physical evidence connecting Heirens to the crimes, did the Police really get their man?
