Investigation Discovery presents 'Murder Castle'

It sounds like something out of a horror movie: A hotel where stairs lead to nowhere, deadly gasses are piped into the locked rooms, and bodies are thrown into the cellar and dissected. But it was real, and belonged to H. H. Holmes — the charismatic doctor, crooked businessman, and infamous killer who terrorized Chicago beginning in 1886. (Wikipedia image)

CRIMEFEED.COM – It sounds like something out of a horror movie: A hotel where stairs lead to nowhere, deadly gasses are piped into the locked rooms, and bodies are thrown into the cellar and dissected.

But it was real, and belonged to H. H. Holmes — the charismatic doctor, crooked businessman, and infamous killer who terrorized Chicago beginning in 1886.

The doctor and his chamber of horrors are the subject of the Investigation Discovery miniseries Murder Castle, that premiered Saturday. 

Holmes, who was born Herman Webster Mudgett, but better known by the name of Dr. Henry Howard Holmes, was hanged for one murder, confessed to 27, and is widely believed to have killed many more.

But some experts say that, over the years, Holmes’ body count and the myth of his hotel have been wildly exaggerated.
