The Murder of the Moore Family
Long before serial killers and mass murders had become a normal part of life, two adults and 6 children were found brutally murdered in their beds in a small mid-western town. The bloody Villisca Axe Murders have stumped authorities for over a century, despite numerous suspects, two trials, and a confession. To this day ghosts are still reaching out trying to shed light on the truth.
