THE BAD OLD DAYS is a nod to twisted tales of decades past, detailing the most provocative, juicy, real-life murder cases of the '50s and '60s. Set against the backdrop of the fetishized world of bullet bras, garter belts, suburban secrets and three-martini lunches, these stories of truly mad men and women reveal layer upon layer of warped relationships turned terrible crimes.

From 1967 to 1970, seven young women were abducted and brutally murdered in Washtenaw County, creating a palpable atmosphere of fear in already-turbulent times.

A new television show now in production will revisit the haunting murders. “The Bad Old Days,” a new series that highlights murder cases from the 1950s and 1960s, will tell the story of what are alternately called “The Co-Ed Murders” or “The Michigan Murders.” The latter is also the title of a 1977 book by Edward Keyes.

Eastern Michigan University student John Norman Collins was eventually arrested and convicted of strangling and beating to death the final victim, Karen Sue Beineman.

Police believed Collins killed Beineman in the Ypsilanti home of his uncle, a corporal with the Michigan State Police who was vacationing at the time. Prosecutors presented blood splatters from the basement floor as evidence at what would be the longest trial in the county’s history.
