Bonus Episode – Completing H.H. Holmes

H.H. Holmes

In Ghostly’s first BONUS EPISODE, Pat and Rebecca go deeper into the history of H.H. Holmes, one of America’s first serial killers. Holmes was a murderer and a con man who almost got away with escalating his killing to even worse levels, but his greed got in the way. We told you part of the story in our main episode – here is the rest. Listener beware – this is a disturbing story and may not be appropriate for all ages/constitutions.

Questions explored in this episode: How many people did Holmes actually kill? How many wives did he have? How did he kill his victims? What do we know for sure and what don’t we know?  

Pat tells more of Holmes’s murderous history in this episode, with Rebecca providing commentary, and, of course, some debate on what we know and what we don’t know about H.H. Holmes and his gruesome crimes.
