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.
