It was a hot and sticky night on August 6th, 1988, when 22-year-old Jane Boroski’s life was changed forever. At seven months pregnant, she stopped at a convenience store that evening to get a drink, when she was approached by a violent stranger. He began making bizarre accusations at Jane and forced her out of her car. When Jane fought back, he tackled her and stabbed her 27 times. This man was none other than the infamous Connecticut River Valley serial killer.

Host of the Invisible Tears Podcast Jane Boroski tells the story of how she and her baby survived the vicious attack, and how the encounter altered the course of her life. She discusses the status of the cold case and shares how she works to advocate for victims and families alike.

The Invisible Tears Podcast is a platform dedicated to telling stories of trauma, healing, and survival. Jane uses the show to not only voice her own experience but to provide amplification for other unsolved cases throughout the state.
