For this week’s podcast, I wanted to explore a bit of the darker side of history. Historic mysteries are the best kinds of mysteries, and while Geeked on History tries to steer clear of history that is difficult to cite, exceptions will be made for certain topics.
In 1922, one of the most unsettling unsolved mass murders occurred in farm country, Germany. While the fact that the murders remain unsolved, the secrets of the murdered family contribute to this odd and creepy story.
Who would want to murder a family living on a farm in the middle of nowhere in Germany? What happened inside that barn? What horrors did 7-year-old Cazilia see when she walked into the pitch darkness of the old farm shed?
As promised, you can find a few of the crime-scene photos taken at the Hinterkaifeck farmstead attached to this post.
