Manson Family Murder Victims. Morgue records were filed under "Parent" for Steven Earl Parent for the Cielo murders since he was the first victim found but so many forget him- he was so young and his funeral was hardly covered by the press. All of these people paid such a dear price. May they be at peace.
Murder Most Foul, The ghoulish tale of a family of serial killers known as the "Bloody Benders". Innkeepers who murdered their guests to steal their belongings. They would seat them with their backs to a draped doorway. A member of the family would bash in their brains with a hammer, then slit their victims throat after they fell to the floor. More then a dozen men, women, & children lost their lives, and were found in mass graves days after the Bender's escaped, never to be brought to justice.
