The Ripper

Day 2.  Do you have any idea how many serial killers are out there?  Obviously, no discussion about serial killers is complete without talking about the original.  Of course that’s the one, the only Jack the Ripper. If you’ve read anything ever in the last 100 years or seen any movies, you know all about […]


Little known fact about me:  I am utterly obsessed with serial killers.  Which, if you know me is totally insane because I am pretty easily scared.  When I was younger, I almost obsessively checked out this book on the spooky legends of Indiana, and there was a story in there about the “Ax-man” in Bloomington, […]
