That "Church of the Sacrifice" is Looking Bigger and Bigger


Monmouth, Ill. (1912)
“William E. Dawson and his wife and 13-year-old daughter” were murdered with an axe.
Category: Cult.?
Suicide: No.
Cause: There are similarities to the “church of the sacrifice” mass murders in previous entries and description of the accused as “all negroes” that suggests a possible common cause.  In addition police in two other nearby towns sought to interrogate the suspects that suggest common elements. [1]
Weapon: axe.
