In the summer of 1958, the murders that would come to be known as the “Bloodless Murders” or the “Dracula Murders” swept through the Midwest, beginning in Nebraska and sawing through Iowa and Wisconsin before turning back to my hometown of Black Deer Falls, Minnesota. Before it was over, the murders would claim the lives of seventeen people of different ages and backgrounds. All would be discovered with similar wounds: their throats slit or their writs cut. A few sustained deep cuts to their inner thigh. Each of the victims died from blood loss, yet each of the crime scenes was suspiciously clean of blood.
Goood afternoon all!
