Evelyn Corbin was murdered on Sept. 8, 1963. A fifty-eight year old divorcee, she was found strangled with her own nylon stockings. This murder was wrongly attributed to the "Boston Strangler" Albert De Salvo, though Salem police were never convinced it was him. A Lynn man, Robert Campbell was probably the murderer, but the police could not get enough evidence against him to make the case stick.
