Midwest Murders – Part 1: Arnie Graves

Was Arnie Graves’ murder the work of a satanic ritual serial killer, or was it just staged to look like it? The veteran Chicago Police Detective who investigated the murder describes it as something he had never seen before. This Chicago-based episode covers the first murder in this series that begins a chain reaction that eventually links multiple crime victims in the Midwest.
