In the 1930s, Cleveland, Ohio, was rocked by a series of brutal and disturbing killings. The murderer’s chosen method of human destruction? Viciously beheading and dismembering his no-doubt terrified victims. Shockingly, some 80 years later, the case remains unsolved – and the killer’s identity is still unknown.
Moreover, there are precious few hard facts around the murders. Officially, 12 people – five women and seven men – lost their lives at the hands of this brutal killer between 1935 and 1938. However, it’s thought that he may have killed as many as 20 people over a greater period of time. Still, the 12 official victims all had a couple of things in common. For starters, they had all been decapitated.
