Old Timey Crimey #20: Belle Gunness - “Picnic at the Murder Farm”

Old Timey Crimey #20: Belle Gunness - “Picnic at the Murder Farm”

August 2, 2019

She was 6 feet, 200 pounds of pure murder. This week, Scott and Kristy delve into the case of Belle Gunness, frequent flyer of insurance companies, banks, and probably any establishment that sells both cleavers and poison. She was the Spiderwoman to H.H. Holmes's Spiderman, and if they'd met, they'd either have killed each other or killed even more people--if that's possible. 

Don't miss our list of La Porte, Indiana's many luminaries--seriously, don't miss this--along with so, so many air quotes that you can't see because this is an audio medium. But don't worry, we'll tell you. 

You'll be the best gumshoe ever if you leave us a 5-star review on iTunes. Don't forget to follow us here on Podbean, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts, and hit us up on our FB group or Twitter. Thanks for listening!
