Sean has officially declared March to be axe murder month - much to the chagrin of March-born Carrie - and so we begin a multi-part series on horrific axe murders! Well, in like a lion, out like a lamb, as they say.
Our first part focuses on one of the most famous early unsolved murder sprees in American history. From 1910 to 1911, and again from 1917 to 1920, New Orleans' famous French Quarter was stalked by a madman with a lust for blood.
This mysterious figure, dubbed "The Axeman of New Orleans" by history, was an American serial killer long before the term was invented. Listeners may be familiar with the murderer's famous newspaper letter or his obsession with jazz music - but this week Sean takes us through the surprising true story behind the Axeman's obsession, and we look for the real motive behind the madness.
