Bodies In Ben Franklin's Basement

In 1998, the bodies of four adults and six children were found under a home once occupied by Benjamin Franklin. The bodies were buried about the time Franklin lived there. The bones appear to have been "dissected, sawn or cut, and one skull had several holes drilled in it."
It is believed that another tenant of the home, a doctor, was responsible for the bodies. Apparently, he plundered several graves and used the bodies for medical experiments.
So, we can't call ol' Ben a serial killer. Not yet, anyway.

Ben as a serial killer. Sorry, but why do I think this idea is so cool? I mean, I don't like serial killers at all...

Maybe it's the whole spector of the "hide in plain sight" thing. I love that.

I agree. The idea that one of the Founding Fathers might have been a serial killer does have a certain creepy appeal. Or else we're just messed up.

I'm thinking along the same lines. How weird/awesome would it be to find out that someone really really high profile as a creepy maniac.

And just so you know, my word verification was:
