In the 1930s, Cleveland had its own gruesome version of Jack the Ripper. The Mad Butcher of Kingsbury Run - also known as the Torso Murderer - targeted men and women living on the fringes of society during the Great Depression, beheading his victims and leaving their body parts strewn about the city. Famed lawman Eliot Ness was Cleveland's Safety Director, and while those who have studied the case in modern times believe Ness might have had his man, an arrest was never made and the identity of the Mad Butcher is left to speculation. www.ohiomysteries.com feedback@ohiomysteries.com www.patreon.com/ohiomysteries www.twitter.com/mysteriesohio www.facebook.com/ohiomysteries Music: Ohio Song, by Casey Redmond.
