Returning to the true crime fold with perhaps the best known of all the infamous multiple murders in American history, this episode of 13 O’Clock sees Tom and Jenny examining the brutal slayings of the Clutter farm family in Kansas, the crime on which Truman Capote based his classic book, In Cold Blood. Besides discussing the crime itself as well as the book that was written about it, we also delve into a far less known family massacre, that of the Walkers in Florida in 1959, which may or may not have been committed by the same men who killed the Clutters. All this, plus a couple of weird news stories about the Romanian living dead, and why you should probably look at your cashews before popping them in your mouth hole. Lock your doors and gird your loins for a grim, grisly, and gore-soaked episode 85.
