Episode 50-Squatters, Incest, and…Octopus?

Erica found a really “neat” topic for the 50th episode of Martinis and the Macabre-a case  that remains unsolved almost 100 years later. The murders were brutal, the family secrets were disturbing, and the unknown killer was just f*cking weird! Honestly, who squats in a family’s attic for months, chilling out and smoking meats, then goes berserk and kills the whole family, only to keep hanging out and feeding the cows and chickens for days? It just doesn’t make sense! Neither does Octopus juice in a soda. Strange times…
