Where the Bodies Are Buried

Where the Bodies Are Buried Cover

 

Staff Pick

Have you ever noticed a Sav-A-Lot store? Have you ever been inside? Well, if you have morbid curiosities like I do, you may want to walk in and look around. Serial killers do not have to be deadbeats with no job or ambition, as was the case with Herbert Baumeister, original owner and operator of Sav-A-Lot store chains. With his always-fashionable button-down shirts and his gator shoes, he managed to lead two completely different lives right under his family's nose. Enter the world of the Herb in Where the Bodies Are Buried.

Publisher Comments:

Fox Hollow Farm, a lush million-dolar suburban Indianapolis estate, had 18 acres of lawns, a fabulous swimming pool...and thousands of human bones buried in the yard. The piles of dismembered skeletons belonged to young men who has disappeared from the gay bars and cruising sites of this Midwest city.

Their killer was Herb Baumeister, a beloved father and successful businessman who led a deadly double life. And until the day his son dug up a buried skull, Herb's pretty wife Julie never dreamed he was Indian's worst serial killer. She didn't know about the bizarre sexual encounters Herb held at the house when she went away with their kids...or about the brutal cravings that led him to kill.

In this riveting account, two veteran journalists tell the uncensored story of Herb Baumeister--taking you into a psychopath's dark obsession to meet his victims, to witness the rituals of sex and death he forced his victims to perform, and to find out how this gruesome killing sprees finally--shockingly--came to an end...

Synopsis:

This terrifying true story details the exploits of Indiana's most prolific serial killer, suspected of murdering over 20 men.

The shocking story of the double life lived by an ordinary family man, this book is written by the authors who covered the story for "People" magazine. Photos.
