96. Jake Bird: Tacoma, Washington Murders of Bertha and Beverly Kludt

Jake Bird worked on railroads and took the train everywhere he went. In Tacoma, Washington, Jake was sneaking around the streets and came across an axe in the backyard of Bertha Kludt’s home. What was supposed to be a so-called “easy” robbery turned into major bloodshed…
Later, Jake put a hex on anyone who had a hand in his trial and were not on his side. A handful of those people died within a year or so.

    The part where he mentions that he wants to be adopted by a more functional family even at 45 yrs really hits home. Really delineates how no matter how old and independent you are, you still need love and support.
