    Bob Wilhelm's 'Murder By Gaslight' has additional information concerning the murders.....

    Tickets to the hanging were sold for $ 50.00

    $50 in 1876 → $1,177.52 in 2018

    No doubt there had been other solo serial killers ( the duo, The Harpe Brothers, predate Piper ) whose names we'll never know......but Piper might be the worst known serial killer in America's first 100 years.
    Up until today I never heard of him.

    Piper was a contemporary of Jesse Pomeroy. These two, along with 'Lone Wolf' Walters in 1925, were the purveyors of panic in Beantown long before the Boston Strangler series.
