The Burger Chef Murders Are One Of Indiana’s Lesser-Known, Most Baffling Crimes
It was a chilly night on November 17, 1978. There were four people working at the Burger Chef restaurant in Speedway, Indiana when the unthinkable happened, but due to nothing but circumstance, the full scope of the horror wouldn’t be understood for another 48 hours. What initially seemed like a petty robbery became a brutally vicious unsolved crime in Indiana history, and to this day, thanks to a bungled investigation, the facts are still hardly known at all.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
The last Burger Chef restaurant closed its doors in 2006.
