IN 1995, A NEW JERSEY COLLECTOR BOUGHT A BATCH OF 100-YEAR-OLD WAX CYLINDER RECORDINGS. WHEN HE PLAYED THEM, HE HEARD MORE THAN THE TUNES HE'D BARGAINED FOR. ONE RECORDING WAS OF A MAN ADMITTING TO MULTIPLE MURDER.
THE CONFESSION WERE MADE BY A DOCTOR, HH HOLMES, DAYS BEFORE HE WAS HANGED.

Cylinder voice: I was born with the Devil in me.

THE VOICE WAS A NEW CLUE INTO ONE OF THE MOST ASTONISHING SET OF HOMICIDES IN CRIMINAL HISTORY. IN 1890, HOLMES TURNED HIS HOTEL INTO A PRODUCTION LINE OF MURDER. NOW HIS WORDS LURE THE 21st CENTURY'S TOP SERIAL KILLER HUNTERS ON A JOURNEY TO DEPRAVITY. AND TWO SISTERS DISCOVER THEIR FAMILY'S TERRIBLE SECRET.

Beth Pietzel: Just to picture anyone tied up, burnt alive. The story's gunna be told.

TWO HUNDRED MAY HAVE DIED, AT THE HANDS OF AMERICA'S FIRST SERIAL KILLER.
