    Ep 247: The Barnabet Axe Murders

    Ep 247: The Barnabet Axe Murders

    The horror continues in Blurry Photober with a mega episode about the Barnabet axe murders. Flora is joined by authors Alan Gauthreaux and Dr. Daryl Hippensteel as well as numerous Louisianans to explore the ghastly tale of the Barnabet axe murders. Southwestern Louisiana was terrorized in 1911-12 by brutal axe murders. One young woman was pinned with not only perpetrating them, but possibly masterminding more. Hoodoo and Voodoo were found to be involved, which the media picked up at the time and ran with. Hear the shocking story and how it ended, told via news articles and criminal justice perspectives. And make sure to head to Alan's YouTube channel for much more content and grab Alan and Daryl's books! Just remember, for this episode of Blurry Photos, content is very graphic. Listener discretion is advised.
