The Deadly History Of This Nebraska Farm Is Terrifying But True

Most people in Nebraska – and, indeed, plenty who have never stepped foot in the Cornhusker State – know about the mass murderer Charles Starkweather, his girlfriend Caril Ann Fugate, and their murderous rampage through Nebraska in 1958. Although it’s not exactly a nice part of Nebraska history, it’s one that continues to fascinate us.

Neighbors are understandably wary of people poking around on the property, and we strongly advise against visiting the site yourself. Out of respect for the neighbors and the landowner, if you happen to know the location of the site, please do not share it.

The 59th anniversary of the Starkweather/Fugate murder spree is coming up soon on January 21st, 2017. The spree went on for eight days, finally ending in the arrests of both on January 29th, 1958.

These horrific crimes caught the attention of media nationwide and still continue to fascinate crime buffs to this day. Take a look at some other times the entire country had its eyes on Nebraska.
