Description

H.H. Holmes is often referred to as America's first serial killer. He became fascinated as a child with death and later studied medicine in college. Holmes didn't make all of his money legally. He used arson to con insurance companies and cadavers to collect life insurance. It seems that he began killing mainly to cover up his crimes.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the infamous H.H. Holmes. Holmes confessed to over 20 murders but the real number is in question. Some people believe Holmes elevated the number to sell a book. Also in question is just how many people Holmes killed at what the media dubbed his "murder hotel."
