Description

If you know true crime then you know The Villisca Axe Murders. In 1912 an entire family and two house guests were brutally killed in their sleep by a cold blooded beast. There have been a couple suspects over the years, but somehow this case remains officially unsolved. The details are spine chilling, but the case itself is one of the most fascinating.

1912 is Edwardian era not Victorian. Queen Vic died in 1901.

Did she mean to say that each member of the family ham been struck 'at least 20 times’ instead of “up to 20 times?” Because she already said Joe was struck at least 30 times. Not trying to be pedantic, it’s just important and can mean entirely different things. I assume she meant ‘at least 20 times’ since they all were mostly unidentifiable.
