He killed his victims in an airless dungeon and buried them in a sewer. How could a quiet man carry out such sadistic murders? How many did he kill? Where are the bodies of his victims that were never found? These unanswered questions can all be posed about the infamous killer Harry Powers of Clarksburg, West Virginia, who went to the gallows in 1932, still insisting his innocence of a series of murders that shocked the city, the state, and the nation.

The fairy tale “Bluebeard” details an evil nobleman who marries a string of women and then kills them. It is probably French in origin and was first written down in a 1697 collection of fables and fairy tales collected by Charles Perrault. The term “Bluebeard” today is generally used for any killer who has killed a succession of fiancées and/or wives. The gruesome story inside was used for the inspiration to the classic book and movie, Night of the Hunter.
