Default Who Is Really Buried In The Grave Of The Devil In The White City ?


Adam Selzer, author of the new “H.H. Holmes: The True History of the White City Devil”, has never believed all of the more fanciful stories about the “murder castle”, and says he believes the Holmes body count might have only been between 9 and a dozen individuals.
“He was a swindler first and foremost,” he said. “Right after he was first arrested he suddenly became really, really famous. People were calling him the arch criminal, the master criminal of the century!”

(Personally, I also have never believed a natural swindler like Holmes was of the ilk he's been compared to. Not like a Vacher, Ripper, Chikatilo, Sutcliffe.....but more in line with black widows, William Palmers, etc..-HB )
