One Of The Most Gruesome Mass Murders In US History Happened In Small-Town Indiana

There are a lot of things that they don’t exactly teach us in school when it comes to history lessons of all kinds, including state and local history.

It happened, and the whole story of these murders in Indiana is to-the-bone chilling.
