Fiend Incarnate author Edgar V. Epperly is a guest on the Most Notorious True Crime History Podcast hosted by Erik Rivenes. We share the Podcast link here for you to tune into to this 3-part program on the discussion about the infamous Villisca, Iowa Axe Murders of 1912.
Most Notorious Podcast Host Erik Rivenes: June 9th (or) 10th marks the 111th anniversary of one of the most notorious crimes in American history - the brutal axe murders of Josiah and Sarah Moore, their four children (Herman, Katherine, Boyd and Paul) and Ina and Lena Stillinger, two neighbor girls who had the terrible misfortune of sleeping over that night.
It's a case steeped in mystery, with a gruesome crime scene, puzzling evidence, twists and turns and compelling suspects. My guest - Dr. Edgar Epperly - has spent almost seventy years interviewing eyewitnesses and key figures and pouring over historical records related to the crime. He is considered the foremost authority on the case. The culmination of his decades of work is a comprehensive book on the subject published at the end of 2021, called "Fiend Incarnate: Villisca Axe Murders of 1912". This is an absolute must read for anyone interested in the case.
