Eras of True Crime


We will take you through eras in time with our history of True Crime. Learn about how downtown San Diego first came to be and then the era of the Stingaree. Here you will learn of the first death on the tour. At a historic hotel this ghost is said to STILL haunt his room. Then you will travel in time to the roaring 1920’s; Murder, Revenge and Slavery. Next you will move forward a little over 10 years to become familiar with the 3rd victim of a San Diego Serial Killer. And last, we will share one of the most horrific crimes to take place in downtown San Diego.

* Please note due to the graphic nature of these murder cases we advise extreme caution for children under 13. This tour includes discussion of assault, murder, mutilation, rape, along with other gruesome details that some may find offensive.
