Episode 3: Elton Manning Jackson AKA The Hampton Roads Killer

jackson

Elton Manning Jackson, or The Hampton Roads Killer, was a lust strangler of gay men, active between 1987 & 1996 in the The Hampton Roads metropolitan area. This area is notable as a port of entry and as the headquarters of the Navy’s Atlantic fleet, and it has a very large concentration of military personnel. On weekends, Norfolk and Portsmouth are swarmed with young servicemen. Strip joints and go-go clubs are numerous and cheap motels advertise “military discounts.”

Downtown, bars and clubs line one end of Granby Street, and in Portsmouth, men cruise for sex and/or drugs in a two-block area of a neighborhood called Truxtun. As far as the police can tell, all of the victims were last seen in or were known to frequent one of these three neighborhoods. Their lifestyles, and Jackson’s, tended to revolve around late-night clubs and hangouts in the downtown and Ocean View areas of Norfolk, and the Truxtun area of Portsmouth.

The first murder occurred in 1987, but police didn’t realize that they had a serial killer on the loose until 1993 when a seventh body was found.
