Nobody can stop people thinking about killers and how their minds work. Today, most of the people want to know what drives a man to murder, rape, or steal from innocent people. Still, it must be understood that each incident has its own unique set of circumstances.
So, let us know more about America's first family that was composed of serial killers. Yes, this family was named 'Bloody Benders' because of their bloody deeds.
Read on to find out more about them.
This family was composed of two adults and their two kids. Although it is speculated that they might not be actually a family. John Bender and Elvira Bender were the 'parents' while their 'kids' were named Kate and John Jr.
They used to run an inn in Labette County, Kansas between 1871 and 1873. This was the perfect way for them to lure customers which would turn into victims.
Yes, the family killed the victims at its own bed and breakfast inn.
They would allow the guest to be at the seat of honor during meal time. The seat was positioned over a trap door...
John would be the one to pulverize the victim with a hammer while another family member would slit the throat. Once it was dark enough, they would take them out of that location and bury them outside.
The Bloody Benders suddenly disappeared as soon as the county started to conduct an investigation. Officials discovered the trap door and eleven bodies at the Bender property.
It's terrifying to think that they might have murdered more people.
John was known to have come from Germany while Elvira actually had many husbands before John. Some believe Elvira killed her former husbands.
Of course, it was widely acknowledged that it was Kate who was the real child of Elvira.
It was also argued that the members of the family separated from each other in the end, but nobody knows for sure.
