Late one night in June of 1912, eight people were bludgeoned to death in a house in Villisca, Iowa. Although several suspects were named, and even put on trial, the case remains unsolved.
The Villisca axe murder house remains as a tourist attraction, offering tours and overnight stays. Many supernatural events are said of have occurred there over the years, inspiring the 2017 indie horror film “The Axe Murders of Villisca.”
