A riveting tale of true crime, chronicling the murder of a young California woman by a disturbed killer who couldn’t resist his passion for “souvenirs.”
On a June night in 1991, twenty-three-year-old Denise Huber was driving home from a concert when her car blew a tire. She pulled over on the highway, just a few miles from her parents’ home in Newport Beach. The next day, the police found her abandoned car, but Huber had simply vanished.
Her disappearance inspired one of the most intensive missing-persons searches in history. All to no avail. The only man who knew what happened to Huber wasn’t planning to let her go—ever.
Three years later, in an affluent suburb of Prescott, Arizona, a woman noticed a padlocked truck in the driveway of a house belonging to John Famalaro. Something about the truck seemed suspicious, so she called the police. After prying open its doors, they found the nude, handcuffed corpse of Denise Huber stuffed into a freezer—preserved forever in the throes of death.
Inside Famalaro’s home, Huber’s personal belongings were found along with neatly arranged “trophies” of other female prey. But it wasn’t until the trial that the terrifying details of Huber’s final hours were revealed. Now, Cold Storage exposes the dark deeds of a merciless killer consumed by perversity and unfathomable evil.
