    Bender Farm This photograph shows the graves found behind the Bender farm, Labette County, Kansas. The Bender family operated a remote road house on a farm near Cherryvale, Kansas. When several travelers disappeared, local residents became suspicious of the Benders. A search of the property revealed eleven bodies buried in the yard and all of them died of injuries consistent with blows to the head. The Bender family members escaped and were never found. Creator: Gamble, G. R. Date: 1873

    The Bloody Benders: This photograph from 1873 shows the graves found behind the Bender farm. It was noticed that the Benders' garden was always freshly plowed but never planted

  • Elisha Sutton

    The Bender family killed about a dozen people before they disappeared from their home. Townspeople found decaying bodies placed underneath the house in makeshift graves. They all suffered severe blunt force trauma to the head. After killing their guests (who were usually travellers not from the are) they would steal their money and dispose of the bodies.
