E36: The Hinterkaifeck Murders

October 8, 2018

In 1922, a family of five and their new maid were savagely murdered in their German farmhouse during the midst of a crippling recession that directly led to the fall of the Weimar Republic and the rise of Nazi Germany. The killer is shown to have stayed in the attic of the Gruber family home for some time before committing the murders, coming and going completely undetected, and even taking items belonging to the family. Were the Gruber's murdered by a spurned ex-lover, or did a husband return from the dead to exact his revenge on a wife who had long since moved on? Find out as Big, If True's Spooktober series rolls on.
