That Murder & Mystery Show
The Axe Syndicate of Birmingham Pt. 1
The Axe Syndicate was said to be a group of axe robbers that sometimes spun out into murder in Birmingham, Alabama during the early part of the 20th century. However looking at cases it appears the Syndicate was more of the media of the time running with an idea than an actual organized group of axe wielding robbers...or was it? In the first episode of Southern Mystery Sundays, we get into the murders and attacks by the Axe Syndicate that occured in 1919 and 1921 and 1922. Tune in next week for part two.
