Most of the town hid in fear inside their houses or hotels, sometimes even leaving town.
Some youths took matters into their own hands by trying to bait the Phantom so they could kill him.
The Texarkana Moonlight Murders, a term coined by the news media, were a series of unsolved murders and other violent crimes committed in and around Texarkana in the spring of 1946 by an unidentified serial killer known as the "Phantom Killer" or "Phantom Slayer".
The killer is credited with attacking eight people within ten weeks, five of whom were killed.
Around ten minutes later, at p.m., a man wearing a white cloth mask–which resembled a pillowcase with eye holes cut out–appeared at Hollis's driver-side door, and shined a flashlight in the window.
Hollis and Larey gave conflicting reports to law enforcement as to what their attacker looked like: Larey claimed the man was wearing a white bag over his head with cutouts for the eyes and mouth, and that she could see under the mask that he was apparently African-American.
Her body was lying on its back, fully clothed, with the right hand in the pocket of the buttoned overcoat.
She was found by members of the Boyd family, along with their friend Ted Schoeppey, who had joined the search party.The disappearance of Virginia Carpenter, a cold case in Texarkana in 1948, has been speculated as the work of the Phantom.The prime suspect in the case was Youell Swinney, who was linked to the murders by statements from his wife.The 1976 film The Town That Dreaded Sundown was released internationally and is loosely based on the events, despite its claim that "only the names have been changed".Because the movie claimed that the "story you are about to see is true, where it happened and how it happened," the fabricated parts created much of the myth and folklore around the murders for several decades.
