IN THIS EPISODE: A series of ax murders took place in Louisiana and Texas. Gruesome as they were, they began to horrify the public even more when they were eventually attached to a teenaged voodoo priestess. Despite the numerous murders attributed to the teen though, a pair of authors say that there was someone in the area at the time even more dangerous – known by many as just “The Man From The Train”. Plus, we’ll look a few more gruesome ax murders that took place in the 1800s.
