Unsolved: The Axeman of New Orleans
TERROR IN THE BIG EASY
In 1918, a series of violent murders and attacks swept the southern city of New Orleans, Louisiana. Under cover of night, an unknown assailant murdered six people and injured six more as they slept soundly in their beds. The Axeman’s weapon of choice was almost always the victim’s ax, which he boastfully left on the scene. The attacker was dubbed The Axeman of New Orleans.
