Iowa Serial Killer Murdered and Buried Dozens on Family Farm Near Nebraska Border
According to the Des Moines Register, the daughter of what could be the country's most prolific serial killer witnessed the burial of up to 70 bodies on their family farm in Thurman, Iowa, near the Nebraska border.
She came forward and authorities have since brought cadaver dogs to the property where most of the victims would be buried.
The woman told authorities that her father, Donald Dean Studey, murdered and buried approximately 70 women in or near the well on the family farm.
She knows this because she and her siblings would have to help move the victims to the area where cadaver dogs earlier this month indicated decaying remains on the property.
The woman has been making claims of her father's exploits for years, made public this past Monday in a Newsweek article.
It's fascinating reading, and if true, will most likely end up as a documentary series on your favorite streaming service in the near future. Studey's spree of 70 or so victims over a three-decade span would put him on the medal stand for sure, and possibly at the top of the list of America's most deadly serial killers.
Samuel Little is America's most prolific, having been definitely linked to 60 murders.
