Description

One summer night in 1912, eight people were axe murdered in their sleep under the same roof. Over a hundred years later, the house remains in its rural farming town of Villisca, Iowa, open to the public. The case remains unsolved. The details of that night? Unsettling. One visitor even felt compelled to stab himself in the chest while there. On this episode, how a bloodbath from a century ago haunts our imaginations today.
