**************************************************************
In the 1930s, Cleveland, Ohio, was rocked by a series of brutal and disturbing killings. The murderer’s chosen method of human destruction? Viciously beheading and dismembering his no-doubt terrified victims. Shockingly, some 80 years later, the case remains unsolved – and the killer’s identity is still unknown.

Moreover, there are precious few hard facts around the murders. Officially, 12 people – five women and seven men – lost their lives at the hands of this brutal killer between 1935 and 1938. However, it’s thought that he may have killed as many as 20 people over a greater period of time. Still, the 12 official victims all had a couple of things in common. For starters, they had all been decapitated.

But they shared a commonality in life too. You see, despite the Great Depression, Cleveland’s economy was performing well during the 1930s. In fact, the booming steel and manufacturing industry attracted many casual laborers and drifters, desperate for a wage, to the city.

Unfortunately, it would be these people who the murderer decided to target. Why? Well, the bodies of laborers – who were less likely to have a fixed address – would be harder to trace.

Indeed, only three of his (assuming that the murderer was male) victims were ever identified. These three unfortunate souls had set up what was to be their last home on the Kingsbury Run. This was a stretch of dilapidated shanty towns in The Flats, an area of Cleveland beside the Cuyahoga River.

Back then, the Kingsbury Run was rife with crime and danger. After all, it wasn’t just laborers who lived there – so too did vagrants and other victims of the Great Depression, surrounded by garbage and vermin. And it was in this scene that two hapless teenagers discovered the first victim of the so-called Cleveland Torso Murderer in September 1935.

Naked apart from a pair of socks, the murdered man had been decapitated, castrated and drained of blood. The victim’s fingerprints later identified him as Edward Andrassy – a known drifter who’d had previous run-ins with the law. However, Andrassy’s corpse wasn’t alone.

In fact, near his remains lay those of a second man. This body had also had its head and genitals removed. Something was different, though. Indeed, this corpse showed signs of what looked like a chemical burn.

Curiously, the burns matched those found on a female body one year previously. In September 1934, a woman’s decapitated torso was discovered on the banks of nearby Lake Erie. Dubbed the “Lady of the Lake,” her flesh was described as being reddened and leathery, which suggested that a chemical had been poured onto her skin. Perhaps, then, these murders were linked.
