Story topic this week…

The Torso Murders – In the Wake of the Butcher
From 1934 to 1938, the ‘Torso Killer’ left the corpses of at least twelve victims in and around the Kingsbury Run area of Cleveland. A frightened city turned to its safety director, the legendary Eliot Ness, who focused more energy and manpower on this investigation than any previous police action in Cleveland. But the killer was never arrested, or even officially identified. Crime writer James Badal will discuss this case and it’s impact on the city.
 

James Badal Bio

James Badal is an American true crime writer. His works include In the Wake of the Butcher (about the Kingsbury Run Torso Murders), Though Murder Has No Tongue (about the only person arrested as the Butcher—who, by the way, Jim exonerates in this book), and Twilight of Innocence (about the Beverly Potts disappearance in 1951). Jim is considered an expert in unsolved true crimes that occurred in Cleveland.
 
The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
