American Ripper

Thursdays at 7:30pm AEST from September 7

At age 40, California attorney Jeff Mudgett is stunned to learn a gruesome family secret; his great-great-grandfather was Herman H. Mudgett, a.k.a Dr. H. H. Holmes, the man considered to be America’s first “serial killer.”

Holmes’ audacious acts of mass murder have become that of legend, inspiring hundreds of books and even motion pictures. Obsessed with learning more, Jeff follows a bloody trail of hidden clues and historical facts which will hopefully strengthen his case and prove his theory that Holmes had travelled to England to commit the “Jack the Ripper” murders.

We start on the night Jeff’s grandfather revealed the family’s dark secret, which then sparked an extraordinary investigation guiding Jeff to infamous sites all around the United States, including the tunnels under a Chicago post-office that now stands where Holmes’s “Murder Castle” once operated.
