Bedtime Stories: The Man From The Train - Part One - Villisca & The Man From The Train - Part Two - Modus Operandi
In June of 1912, an entire household was brutally slain in the small town of Villisca, Iowa. No one was ever brought to justice for the crime and evidence now suggests that it was in fact just one of a large number of families murdered by the same killer. Who was the man from the train?
In our previous episode, we examined the most notorious and well-documented of the massacres committed by the serial killer who would become known as The Man From The Train. Over a century later, author Bill James and his daughter Rachel believe that they have not only mapped out the full extent of his crimes, but also identified exactly who he was.
