Johann Hoch: America's Bluebeard
Show Notes

Bluebeard is a French folk-tale about a villainous man who married and then killed multiple wives.  The American version of this story isn't a folk tale--it's real.  Today's episode of Fact or Fiction examines the story of Johann Hoch, a man accused of marrying scores of women, absconding with their fortunes, and even murdering a few.  Listen carefully because it's never easy to tell which parts of the story are Fact or Fiction.  Ready to play?
