EPISODE 8: The Mad Butcher of Fayette County

Seven men disappeared under different circumstances. They are all believed to be victims of the same killer. Focused around the area of Oak Hill, a serial killer dubbed the ‘Mad Butcher’ performed two confirmed grisly murders, chopping one man into thirteen pieces. The Butcher’s identity was never found, and as time passed the story became folklore of the region. Missing men who were never found became roped into the story, but are they really victims too? Historian and Mad Butcher case expert Scott Worley helps piece together what we do know about the killer in this episode.
