H.H. Holmes: Murder Hotel

Back in 1995 an old antique collector happened to stumble upon a batch of old wax cylinder recordings that dated back a hundred years, as it turned out these recordings weren’t of old tunes but rather one recording was the confession of a man known as H.H. Holmes made by a doctor days before Holmes was hanged for murder.

This recording turned out to be a new clue into one of the most extraordinary yet interesting set of homicides in criminal history. In the late 1800’s Holmes decided to turn his hotel into a sort of production line of murder, where he killed his patrons right up until two sisters discovered a family secret. It is said that Holmes managed to kill up to 200 people here.
