Course detail: OSH083 - Killers of Kansas
This course will examine infamous cases of murder and murderers from throughout Kansas history. During the first session, we'll review serial killers, the fact that they have existed throughout history, and why their murders fascinate us. Subsequent sessions will focus on three well-known cases in Kansas history: The "Bloody Benders," the 19th-century family from Labette County believed to have killed a dozen travelers; the Clutter family murders, the subject of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood); and BTK, the "Bind, Torture, Kill" murderer who killed ten people between 1974 and 1991.
