Bender InnDownload nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Bender Inn

Description: The one-room Bender Inn, at the outskirts of Cherryvale, Kansas, where the Bender family randomly murdered travelers for their goods, jewelry and cash; Kate Bender, a statuesque woman in her mid-twenties, claimed to be a psychic, healer and a medium that could contact the dead; she and her family fled in 1873 after several of their murders were exposed (they may have killed as many as twenty or more travelers); some claim the Bender family, John Bender, his brutish son John, Jr., his wife and daughter Kate, escaped punishment and relocated elsewhere and were never heard from again, although others claim that a posse caught up with the family on the plains and shot them to death, but held a mock trial for Kate and then burned her alive as a witch; murder victims at the inn were seated with their heads against a canvas curtain and, while being served dinner, were struck with hammers through the curtain and, while unconscious, their throats were cut; the bodies were then buried in a nearby orchard on the plains.
