MURDER, SHE TAUGHT: Students dig into unsolved 'Night Marauder' serial murders from a century ago

Recommended Posts


Between 1919 and 1926, a serial killer roamed Maryville, Alcoa and Knoxville and terrified residents.

The man was called the “Night Marauder” because he typically struck at night, leaving murder and assault in his wake. The story was carried by area newspapers and those from as far away as Atlanta, Philadelphia, Indiana and Wisconsin with headlines such as “Maryville and Alcoa folk tremble while murderer goes unapprehended.” The killer even sent a letter to Blount County Sheriff John McCampbell, taunting him with, “You are never going to catch me.”

The sheriff thought it was from William Sheffey.
