Ep. 71: Herb Baumeister

Spread the love

This week we take a look at Indiana’s most prolific serial killer, Herb Baumeister. After a string of disappearances of gay men in the Indianapolis area throughout the early 90s, the police investigation eventually leads to an apparently mild-mannered family man and successful business owner – with bodies buried all over his sprawling estate.

Sean takes us through the facts – from Baumeister’s birth to his deadly double life to his ignoble death – and we try to figure out how Herb’s wife missed more than 10 burials in her backyard. Also: you’ll never see water aerobics the same way.
