The Vice Squad Podcast Episode 2: The Torso Murders. From Cleveland to Youngstown to Pittsburgh, a serial killer
wreaked havoc along the railyards from the 1920s to the 1940s. Sometimes known as “The Mad Butcher,” this murderer
chopped up his victims and left them for police or passers-by to find. Despite best efforts from detectives in Ohio and
Pennsylvania, the killer was never caught. Not even famed lawman Eliot Ness could solve the case and bring the “Mad
Butcher” to justice.
