Shocking murders in Phoenix-area history

It was sensational then. And it is still sensational: the Phoenix trunk murders.

People still take tours of sites related to the grisly murders. Writings on the killings have proliferated.

The case had it all: sex, violence, infidelity, jealousy. Winnie Ruth Judd, a young medical secretary, was convicted of killing her two roommates, chopping up limbs and stuffing them into steamer trunks.

The three were said to have been fighting over a man. Some historians believe Judd couldn't have committed the murders on her own, and some argue she was innocent.

The public was riveted.
