LITTLE SLAUGHTERHOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE by Harold Schechter, narrated by Steven Weber

Little Slaughterhouse on the Prairie - Harold Schechter, Steven Weber

This is the true story of the murderous Bender family. After listening, I am convinced that Michael McDowell based his story KATIE on this family. How many people can there be out there named Katie who, along with their family, liked to kill people with hammers? 

 

Katie - Michael McDowell 

 

Steven Weber does an excellent job of narrating, as always. 

 

As far as True Crime stories go, this is a fascinating one. The truth is stranger than fiction.
