ROCHESTER, N.Y (WHEC) -- The Double Initial Murders made headlines across the country in the 1970s. Three Rochester girls were abducted, raped and killed. The cases have never been solved.

Each victim was around the same age: 10 or 11 years old. They were all abducted from Rochester, sexually assaulted and strangled. Their bodies were dumped in or near a town that started with the same initial as their first and last names.
