On this episode of the Sofa King Podcast, we do some true crime and look into the horrible Wolf Family Murders. Jacob and Beata Wolf both moved to North Dakota in the early 1900s and started a family in 1905. They were a prosperous farming family blessed with six daughters. In a time of economic difficulties, they even made enough money to hire a neighbor as a farm hand. Their daughters ranged from 9 months old to 13 years, but on April 22, 1920, the entire family and their farm hand were all brutally murdered.
On April 24th, the neighbors noticed that the family had failed to bring in their laundry or their horses for two days, even though a storm came through. They tried to call the Wolfs, but their phone line was dead, so they drove over to investigate. When they parked, there was nobody around, and they heard the crying of their infant from inside the house. Eventually, they went into the house and found a bloody scene in the kitchen and a true horror show in the cellar.
