7 - SERIAL: Killer Robert Fry

Robert Fry is a serial killer who lived in Farmington New Mexico, a small town on the edge of the Navajo reservation in the Four Corners of the USA.

Farmington is a old western town of 37,000 people. Everyone knows everyone else and when these murders went unsolved... the town was terrified.

Fry was convicted of brutally murdering four people Betty Lee, Donald Tsosie, Matthew Trecker and Joseph Fleming. It would take years before Robert Fry would be connected to all the crimes. Some believe he is responsible for even more killings.

Betty Lee was a mother of five and heading home from a girls night out when she was murdered.

Donald Tsosie was on his was home from donating plasma and blood when he was killed.

Matthew Trecker and Joseph Fleming were closing a local shop when they were murdered and nearly decapitated.

The Assistant District Attorney told reporters Fry killed because he liked it. He had no motive for the killings. He thought it was fun.
