Episode 088 - Serial Killer Series - H.H. Holmes

He is often called "America's First Serial Killer" and his gruesome Chicago Murder Castle sounds like something straight out of a horror movie but does reality actually compare to the narrative in the case of H.H. Holmes- serial killer? As we will see, the H.H. Holmes story didn't really need embellishment to be horrific enough. This begins a series on serial killers and murders.  DragonKing Dark is part of the When It Was Cool Podcast Network at http://www.whenitwascool.com
