APPALACHIA, WV, KY, VA (WVNS) – Every other Tuesday at Midnight, we bring you the most notorious, most unknown, and the deepest crime cases that Appalachia has to offer.

The twenty-second episode of Crime In The Coalfields, centered around the case of a known West Virginia serial killer, is available right now on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and here on our website.

Taking another look into West Virginia’s own serial killers, Crime in the Coalfields brings you the story of a known serial killer: James Childers. James Childers was a handyman with five murders and a number of arsons under his belt. His case is open and shut, but there are three alleged victims of Childers who remain unrecovered. The truth of serial killers is that sometimes the killer isn’t known, and sometimes.. neither are the victims.

It’s been over 10 years since James Childers murdered 5 potential victims. The case has grown cold, and it is unlikely that the three undiscovered victims will ever be found.
