The Monster Guys Podcast: Episode 048 – “Monsters Among Us: H.H. Holmes”
Show Notes & Summary:
We continue our series this week on The Monster Guys Podcast. During “Monsters Among Us” we will investigate real life monsters: humans that have done horrible things against humanity and have lived among us all along.
“I was born with the devil in me …”
This week we seek out a most depraved individual. A killer that was a breed all to his own: Herman Webster Mudgett, or more commonly known as Henry Howard Holmes (H. H. Holmes).
Considered by many to be America’s first serial killer, this is a man who schemed and lied his way through life, sold cadavers and cashed in on life insurance claims to the tune of what equates to hundreds of thousands of dollars in our own time, and was a prolific murderer.
Oh, and did we mention he built what became known as The Murder Castle?
Thanks for listening, please share.
