That's Odd Episode 09 - Everything's Odder in Texas

On this week's episode of That's Odd, Johnny and Chris take a look at two stories that hail from the Lone Star State. First, a few years before Jack the Ripper terrorized the streets of London and almost a decade before H. H. Holmes shocked the nation during the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, Austin, Texas was the location of a string of horrific murders that would come to be known as the Servant Girl Murders. Also, there are many people throughout history who have cheated death and gone on to live rich, fulfilling lives. The idea that death will follow and eventually claim the lives of those who escaped their fates sounds more like the plot of a horror movie rather than real life, right? Think again. You know what they say... Everything is Odder in Texas!
