Welcome signs proclaim it “America’s Most Beautiful Small Town.” It’s considered the Bourbon Capital of the World. And in many ways, Bardstown, Kentucky is just like a lot of small, tight-knit communities all across the country. But just under the surface, there’s something darker. Not everyone wants to talk about it. And a lot of people would rather forget. That’s because since 2013, Bardstown has also been the site of five unsolved murders. Now, the team behind “Bomber,” “True Crime Chronicles,” and “88 Days” is digging into these cases to find out what’s really happening in Bardstown, and whether these murders could be related. And along the way uncovering a history of violence and fear in this otherwise quintessential southern town. Bardstown launches August 28.

Prayers for the families

I can’t believe these crimes haven’t been solved. There is no way you’ll convince me the Houcks, the only common thread, are not involved. I hope news stories and this podcast help raise awareness and cause pressure from the public and law enforcement to solve these crimes. Great podcast

I have listened to several pod casts. This one has been the best I’ve ever heard. I am surprised by how emotional I got listening to it. I have visited Bardstown one time and the City and community are so nice and it’s a beautiful place. It’s so sad to hear the heart breaking stories. My love and prayers go out to all the families and friends that have been through so much.

Small towns in Kentucky usually have rich histories full of strange and interesting comedies as well as tragedies. Usually only locals get to hear the rumors of scandal, shady deals gone wrong and the wreckage left in the wake.

This podcast gives outsiders a hint at what goes on in the small towns that lie beyond the suburbs and interstates.
