Presented by M. Leigh Hood

While solo murderers like H.H. Holmes hog the spotlight, some made it a family affair.

Discover the horrible tales of the Kelly, Bender, and Harpe families. One has the distinction of being America’s first known serial killers. Listen to yarns of highway robbery, trap doors, and a possible connection to Little House on the Prairie.

M. Leigh Hood is a rare beast of the Cincinnati wilds, most often found walking her monstrous hound, Shuck, or working hard to exacerbate her carpal tunnel syndrome at the computer. Her work appears in Fairy Tales Punk’d Volume II, Cincinnati Magazine, and the in-development MonThology project.
