Join us on Wednesday evening for a fantasticly thrilling night learning about Seattle's past. Cloyd Steiger will talk about his experience researching Gary Gene Grant and his nefarious past. A can't miss for Seattle, history, and crime lovers!

In 1969, the body of a young woman was discovered in the woods of Renton, rocking the communities along Puget Sound. Three more brutal murders followed, drawing the attention of multiple police agencies as they tried to piece together the meager clues left behind. The seemingly unrelated cases challenged detectives, who struggled to realize they were all connected to one man: Gary Gene Grant. Before the term "serial killer" was even coined, Grant stalked his prey, destroying lives and families while walking unseen among the masses. Decades later, his crimes have all but been forgotten. Join author and homicide investigator Cloyd Steiger as he uncovers the story of the murderer who slipped through the cracks of history.

Cloyd Steiger was a homicide detective with the Seattle Police Department for twenty-two years, and he currently works as the chief criminal investigator for the Washington State Attorney General's Homicide Investigations Tracking System. He is the author of Homicide: The View from Inside the Yellow Tape--A True Crime Memoir. He is the father of three sons (two of which are Seattle police officers) and has six grandchildren. He lives in the Seattle area with his wife, Doreen, and killer Lhasa Apso Libby.
