This is the best format (for me at least) to watch any type of true crime/ unsolved mysteries videos..just when I start getting creeped out and paranoid, they start joking around. Great job, guys! P.S. : No, I don't think it's disrespectful to joke around with these cases because it is very, very sad and this gives it a lighter note, which, given the times we live in..I find it better this way!

I feel like if I was a serial killer I'd go around killing super old people so they could be like my grandma passed away... She had cancer but can you believe she actually got murdered? What a way to go

Ashley Lynn Says (5 days ago)
I don’t see how he supports the devil it’s kinda like the Passover (a biblical story) in the Passover if you put the red lamb blood on your door you will be spared but if not All the firstborn in you household dies. In this case with the axe man if you are playing jazz music you will be spared if not he will kill you! Anyone else agree it’s like the Passover? And he may read a lot of the Bible (esv)

Lauren Connor (8 days ago)
For the Maggio’s, wouldn’t it have been hard to slit both of their throats while they were sleeping without waking one? Or did one get up but he dragged them back? I mean, he could have used both hands but....just no. The Axe Man could have been a few different people working together. Like the fact that only some of the doors BOTTOM panels were smashed in. Did the Axeman just go from house to house to see if they had an axe?

what you on about Nazi spy Nazis weren't knocking about in 1918 I think they came in 1920 but they wasn't big until 1930ish
Subha Bucha (9 days ago)
Wait...... So if someone did not have an axe, the axe man would be like " Oh darn! Billy Joe does not have an axe! Well I'll just go home and jazz it, and maybe Netflix and chill"

16:59 that is a picture of shane
Melissa Hart (9 days ago)
I think it’s pretty clear that the killer was an out of work jazz musician with delusions of grandeur. “They’ve never seen me for I am as invisible as the ether?” Sure, Mr Slouch Hat. Whatever you say.

These guys must know by now that they do make serial killer collector cards. I never got that but I got famous celebrity death cards.

15:31 - The attacks on Louis Besumer and Anna Lowe took place on 28 June 1918, however, the Nazi Party would be founded a little less the two years later on 24 February, 1920. With this information, there is no way Besumer was a Nazi spy. You probably meant to say German as at the time, The United States were engaged in World War I with the German Empire. If this happened between 1941 and 1945, then he would've been a Nazi Spy since the United States would be at war with Nazi Germany during World War II.
His dead his like 100 something

People here are suggesting an ambush, Of course the police might have even played Jazz in their station too. They believed the axeman was supernatural. They're fucking scared too lol Well maybe not until the last theory

theory: jason voorhees
Samantha McCoy (14 days ago)
Theory: axewoman. That’s why the success rate of kills was low, she didn’t have the physical strength to deliver killing blows. It also explains why she’d attack them in their sleep, less chance of resistance she couldn’t combat.

How could he be a Nazi spy in 1918..
Habanero Jones (15 days ago)
I bought a homeless dude lunch once. Five days later he was found dead and apparently I was the last person to see him alive. That was not a fun week. Still, if I had found a body I'd call it in asap, come on Ryan, not calling would make you even more suspicious :p

0:55 “I love it when serial killers have a fun little thing” later 19:18 “but if he’s gonna do it, then at least do it randomly” Maybe one of his things was killing Italians?

rosie silk (15 days ago)
what i think is why not kill the ones who are all close to death that does seem like the nice thing to do i mean you shouldn't but if your a serial killer you minus well kill the one close to death anyway right also was he a demon or not a demon cause if he's a demon or spirit then that means there is no way of killing him right you minus well think of him as a human cause if he wasn't one then that means he can come back and kill you done. Lol

The Axeman is part of one of American Horror Story's seasons. This is why I love American Horror Story, it's pretty close to real world crimes and is creepy.
