The Mad Butcher terrorized Fayette County in the 1960’s
In the early 1960’s, fear of a serial caller called the Mad Butcher, gripped Fayette County, West Virginia. Several people went missing during a three year period and some of whose remains were found in disturbing ways, such as a canvas-wrapped torso and body parts strewn on the slopes of Gauley Mountain. As the murder tally grew, so did the rumors, attributing the deeds to everything from a psychotic scientist to a Jekyll and Hyde villain prone to psychotic, murderous binges. The deeper you dig into the mystery, the harder it is to unravel truth from fiction.
