Between May 1918 and October 1919, the Axeman of New Orleans terrorized the Italian grocer population in New Orleans, Louisiana. While he had less than a 50 percent kill rate (not exceptional for a serial killer, definitely not one with personal connections to "His Satanic Majesty, Francis Josef, etc.") he made quite an impact on the city that STILL insists on jazzing it out between March 13 and 15th every year, to avoid incurring the wrath of the Axeman.
Thank God the #DickSquad is back to tackle this mystery. For over 100 years the identity of this killer with terrible aim has remained a mystery. Can we solve it? Hell yeah, we can certainly fail at doing that.
The Lady Dicks dick-tect history, mystery and paranormal tales from around the world. Hailing from Canada, Tae, Nikki and Andrea are a terribly cheesy comedic trio that covers some of life’s biggest mysteries and peskiest ghosts.
