On May 25, 1983, Secret Service agents arrest a man passing counterfeit bills at a mall in Knoxville, Tennessee. Inside his car, they find thousands of dollars in fake currency, guns, pornography, illegal drugs, nine forged driver's licenses, 14 license plates and a mail-order police badge.
The owner of the car is James Mitchell Debardeleben II, a 45-year-old career criminal, inside Debardeleben's garage, investigators find over 52,000 dollars of counterfeit money as well as gun cases, ammunition, police paraphernalia, ski masks, drugs, blood-stained women's clothing, whips, a bag which investigators describe as a "death kit", and hundreds of brutally explicit photographs of women and girls. Although Debardeleben's face is never clearly shown in any of the photographs, FBI forensic photographer maps the moles and freckles on Debardeleben's arms and torso to show that they perfectly match the moles and freckles on the arms and torso of the perpetrator in the photographs. The killer's own photos put him in prison. He is indicted for 11 murders in 9 states, tried and convicted in six cases, and sentenced to serve 375 consecutive years in prison.
