Here's the "BuzzFeed Unsolved True Crime" Episode About the Cleveland Torso Murders


We were recently directed to BuzzFeed's true crime series and their episode about the Cleveland Torso Murders. It came out earlier this year, but we hadn't seen it, and thought you might enjoy.

Among other juicy tidbits: two of the Mad Butcher's thirteen victims were found in the Kingsbury Run area of "Jackass Hill," a hill that existed.

If you're into Cleveland true crime history, this may be a fun diversion.

Otherwise, feel free to check out Scene's slideshow about the torso murders, and our interview with local torso murders scholar James Badal, who — with apologies — provides far more unique information than the BuzzFeed hosts.
