Their victims were shot, stabbed, strangled, poisoned, burned alive or starved to death. Many were kidnapped and sexually tortured. Others were robbed and humiliated before they met their brutal ends.
And the killers were families. Not lone psychotic murderers or street gangs or professional hit men, but fathers, mothers, their children and grandchildren. Linked by bad blood, they were driven to slaughter innocent people together - as a household.
This tells the bizarre true stories of America's first families of murder. From Ma Barker and her savage sons to the bloodthirsty Texas McCrary clan whose men raped and murdered while their women calmly watched, to the Lundgrens, an Ohio family who committed five ritual killings - these are chilling true crime accounts of "family values" taken to their bloodiest, most horrific extreme.
