This murder was the inspiration for the movie "FARGO". Our story takes place in St. Paul, Minnesota, in a neighborhood called Highland Park. It’s March of 1963, and the homes within this neighborhood are filled with members of the upper-middle class. It was a neighborhood that a lot of people would aspire to raise a family in. One where no one would suspect danger or foul play. This was the case for the home at 1720 Hillcrest Avenue, where the Thompson family lived. It was a lavish property with an almost regal feel to it. And the Thompson family, surely, had no idea, that what would happen in their home would go on to become one of the biggest murder cases in Minnesota history. You’re listening to Murder in America. 
In the year 2000, an unbelievably brutal and shocking series of crimes rocked the city of Wichita, Kansas. What began as simple robberies quickly began to devolve into carjackings, then acts of violence, followed by, ultimately, a terrifying home invasion, hours of torture, and series of executions in a snowy field. There have been shows and podcasts made about The Wichita Horror, but usually people skimp out on the details of just what happened inside of that home in Wichita on that cold, December’s night. But we aren’t. We are going to tell you the FULL story, and I have to tell you guys, to everyone listening online, PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE WITH CAUTION. We are going to discuss some vile, disgusting, absolutely reprehensible things in this podcast, and this is NOT for the faint of heart. Trigger warnings include abuse, sexual violence, and obviously, murder. This is the disturbing, true story of THE WICHITA HORROR. And you’re listening, to MURDER IN AMERICA…
