The man suspected of being a serial killer known as the Phantom Killer who terrorized Texarkana, Arkansas and Texas in 1946 although he was never officially charged with any of the murders. Swinney was a known thief with a history of assault and auto-theft. He was linked to the murders mostly by statements made by his wife, who refused to testify against him in court. Two of the lead investigators in the murders, Max Tackett and Tillman Johnson, believed for the remainder of their lives that Swinney had actually been the killer.
