Bound to Die

Title:
Bound to Die

Bound to Die is the true crime story of Florida serial killer Bobby Joe Long. In 1984 Long was convicted of the heinous murders of nine women in Florida's Tampa Bay area. The first body of 19 year old disco dancer Lana Long was found in a field on Mother's Day. Six months later, the bloody rampage ended when the ninth victim was discovered. All had been tortured with rapes and savagely beaten and raped. The killer's confession of his crimes is haunting. The vividly rendered results of his historical trials and appeals are equally shocking.
