The Zodiac Series - Part 1

The Zodiac Killer took credit for several murders in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 1960s. He was never caught. The self-proclaimed Zodiac Killer was directly linked to at least five murders in Northern California in 1968 and 1969 and may have been responsible for more. He taunted police and made threats through letters sent to area newspapers from 1969 to 1974, before abruptly ceasing communication. Despite intensive investigations, no one was ever arrested for the crimes and the case remains open.

Belle Gunness - Part 1

Belle Gunness is one of the craziest serial killers, having possibly killed over 40 people. She would lure men to her house and they would never be seen again. Motivated by greed, she was driven to kill a mass number of people—the exact number, we might never be sure of. Belle Gunness is one of the craziest serial killers, having possibly killed over 40 people. She would lure men to her house and they would never be seen again. Motivated by greed, she was driven to kill a mass number of people—the exact number, we might never be sure of. Children in La Porte, Indiana grow up listening to graphic horror stories about the gruesome murder’s committed by Belle Gunness on her farm at the end of McClung Road. The most disturbing part about these grisly stories is that the gory parts are not fiction. Belle Gunness (also known as Lady Bluebeard, The LaPorte Black Widow, The Mistress of Murder Farm, and Hell’s Belle) was probably one of America’s most prolific serial killers who likely killed between 25 and 30 people, including women and children, at the turn of the 20th century.
