It's our first show of the new year, and what better way to start off 2019 than with a couple of old-timey axe murder cases? On this blood-spattered installment, we're traveling back to the early 20th century to discuss the infamous unidentified serial killer known as the Axeman of New Orleans, who murdered six people and wounded six more between the spring of 1918 and the autumn of 1919. Then, on the second half, we're delving a little deeper to talk about a nearly-forgotten rash of axe murders that took place between November 1909 and April 1912 in Louisiana and Texas that claimed the lives of at least 35 people. This series of horrific killings, known as the Mulatto Axe Murders or the Voodoo Murders, may have been perpetrated by an eighteen-year-old girl, Clementine Barnabet, who was allegedly a member of a voodoo cult and had several accomplices to her crimes. Was she really the monster she was made out to be, or was it all media hype? Lock your doors and fire up your jazz records, it's time to swing the blade on episode 124. Happy New Year, everybody!
