The westward expansion of the United States created new opportunities for pioneers...and murderers! Tonight host Eric Dwinnells and guest co-host Brian Toney discuss the infamous case of The Bloody Benders!
Just after the Cival War, people started to notice travelers seemed to be disappearing in Osage County, Kansas. It didn't take long for suspicion to fall on the Bender family who ran a small general store and restaurant out of their cabin. Soon, the truth was discovered; the Benders had in fact been murdering their guests and burying them in their orchard...but by the time this was discovered, the Benders had disappeared.
So what happened to the Benders? We'll discuss that plus:
a follow up to last week's episode about Lynn Ann Smith, The Oklahoma Sooners, and who we would cast in The Bloody Benders: The Movie.
