The next morning, a neighbor noticed the family had not yet begun their chores. Since the doors to the home were locked, she got Josiah's brother to unlock the door. Overnight, someone had murdered all eight with an axe, covered every mirror in the house, and crept out without being noticed.
To this day, the case has never been solved. Visitors to the house, which is open to tours, report hearing children's voices and seeing objects move and fall over. Photos, videos, and audio recordings have supposedly captured volumes of evidence. There are so many, the Villisca Axe Murder House page simply links to a YouTube channel as evidence.
It has been a fun month! I hope everyone has an awesome Halloween. In case you missed any of my Scary October stories, here they are:
