Anthony Allen Shore was born on June 25, 1962 in South Dakota. He was born the eldest in his family.

At a young age Shore was known to have killed a kitten because he was told he wasn’t allowed to play with it. Throughout his childhood he was abusive to his sister, going as far as to put a screwdriver into her skull. Shore claimed that by the age of 13 he was being molested by his mother. Shore would go on to get married twice and have charges pressed against him for molesting his children. These charges were filed before it was known that he had committed any murders. After these charges had been filed Shore was made to give his DNA and become listed as a sexual offender. He did not have to serve any jail time. It is believed that Shore began his serial series in 1986, at the age of 24. All of his victims were females between the ages of 9 and 21. These victims were all raped or sexually assaulted and then strangled to death. Most of his victims were left in the open, there was no attempt to bury any of them. On October 24, 2003 Shore was arrested for the murder of Carmen Estrada and later confessed to murdering and raping four women in total. He was found guilty and sentenced to death. He is currently serving time in Texas. Shore has hinted that he has been involved in additional murders.
