      My God, Howard, you gave me another case to look at. One wonders if this was related to the Axeman cases of New Orleans? According to crime library, the surviving witnesses in that case described their assailants as a black or mulatto man. The widow of the last victim said that she saw two men assaulting her husband. Perhaps the same pair of black men were involved in these murders as well.

      From 1911-1912, Texas and Louisana were hit with their own flood of axe murders, which claimed 49 lives. A black woman named Clementine Barbanet confessed to personally doing 17 murders and ordering 35.

          Jon:
          Back in 1888, there were 4 murders in the Birmingham (Alabama) area committed by a black perp. The murders were compared to the Whitechapel Murders at that time.

              BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- From 1919 through 1924, a series of ax murders created panic in the streets of Birmingham. It is very likely that multiple assailants were responsible for the crimes and at least a few 'copycat' killers emerged as news reports chronicled the case.

              "There is no monster in Birmingham," Birmingham Police Chief Fred McDuff told the Birmingham Age-Herald in 1923. "The creature viewed as one individual is a figment of the imagination."

              Doesn't remind you of the Ripper(Atlanta) when the jury and many copper said that there was no Ripper?

                Isn't it ironic that just as the axeman crimes ended, this set of crimes begins.
                One must remember that the axeman also targeted Italian grocers.

                  The first link goes to a thread I started 2 years ago....about the Axe Syndicate.

                  The second relates to the murders in November of 1888...
