Did you know that the first female serial killer was a Bostonian? "To have killed more people than anyone who had ever lived," those were her fighting words.
Massacres, gang violence, grave robbers, witchcraft, serial killers, terrorist attacks, and vice rings are just some of the many, many criminal activities the Boston police have had to deal with. For a time, Boston's newspaper headlines read like the openings of Penny Dreadfuls. Boston, one of America's most beautiful and important cities, was also one of the nation's most violent and blood-soaked.
"Full of serial killers...yeah, plural. I'm from Boston, been living here my whole life, and I didn't know half of it. Man, was this place violent. Still is."
Our Boston True Crime Tour is an 18-stop wild ride full of violence, murders, kidnappings, and a usual suspect's list of some of humanity's lesser angels. A fact-based recollection of some of the town's most hideous stories- the type the tourist board tries desperately to sweep under the rug. From killers to con artists, to political scandals, all the way to police strikes. Learn the stories behind the headlines that gripped the nation.
Our walking true crime tour is a 3-mile long marathon through Boston real estate where you will visit some of the seedier sites linked to its past, and learn horrific tales, among them:
We will stop at each site and investigate they why, who, what, where, and when of it all. Try to commit to memory what occurred there and what consequences can still be felt. Our tour is extremely graphic and contains sensitive subjects- discretion is advised.
Come join us on this true-crime tour, and experience the greed, the ambitions, the lust, and the blood-filled past of Boston.
"About 25 years ago, I started as a reporter covering politics. And that sort of evolved into organized crime, because organized crime and politics were the same things in Boston."
