HH Holmes Part 1 - Listener Request

HH Holmes Part 1 - Listener Request

This episode comes to you per the request of a longtime fan of the show.

I briefly mentioned HH Holmes while covering the history of the World's Fair and one of you asked for a deeper dive on the notorious serial killer. This week starts us off on Holmes' background and his first suspected murders.

Come back next week as I wrap up his story and share a little about how he became so infamous.
