    Cleveland's Torso Killer - Crime Scene 204

    Cleveland's Torso Killer - Crime Scene 204

    Finding mutilated bodies and chasing a mad butcher sounds like something out of a Jack The Ripper book. However, these headlines were found much closer to home for me!
    In the 1930s, my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio was terrorized by the Torso Killer who may have killed as many as 12-13 people. The criminal left the bodies in a dismembered and mutilated state around the city. Author James Jessen Badal joined us in this classic program from 2014 to talk about this fascinating case.
    Believe it or not, Eliot Ness of Untouchables fame was a key player and the case is still not officially solved after all of these years.
    Many of the events involved occurred close to where I grew up and I've always been fascinated by this gruesome tale of Cleveland lore.
    You can find Dr. Badal's book, In the Wake of the Butcher: Cleveland's Torso Murders can be found at Amazon: https://amzn.to/42KbxHW
    Thanks Dr. Badal!

Smart True Crime

This is a great show with good interviews. I don’t like to just hear about how someone got killed. The writers Jim interviews are concerned with why criminals do what they do and why it matters to all of us. Thank you Jim. I am really glad you brought this show back!!

This is boring

It takes so long to start and it kind of boring.

Ads on subscriber edition

The show itself is fine but why did I sing up for the subscriber edition if there’s still going to be ads?
