It is the 101st anniversary of one of the most perplexing and haunting true crime cases we have ever examined – the Hinterkaifeck Murders. Even though it has been 5 years since we first released this episode, we still often think about it and wonder what happened on that isolated farmstead on that fateful and dreadful night. Full of terrible twists and unsettling turns, it is one of the world’s most chilling mysteries. What was the motive for such a night of terror? We search for answers with Edward Chilvers, author of: Footsteps in the Attic: A True Account of the Slayings at the Hinterkaifeck Farmstead.
Due to some of the nightmarish elements of the story, listener discretion is strongly advised.
