The Devil Inside Me: Philadelphia’s Dark & Disturbing History
What do Laurel Hill Cemetery and one of history’s most infamous serial killers share in common? More than you might think.
When thinking of Philadelphia over the centuries, many conjure an image of the city’s pivotal place in early American history, its numerous achievements in scientific, social, and medical innovation, or even its distinct cuisine. But there is a sinister side to the city that is less often discussed. It’s a dark history that has blended into the background along with the passage of years in this urban metropolis. You may never have known that Philadelphia has amassed numerous connections to some of the most notorious serial killers and mass murderers in the annals of crime.
Ryan Coffman of the Atlas Obscura Society Philadelphia will resurrect this history with an expansive lecture on the most disturbing places and perpetrators of Philadelphia’s past. Journey with us to the unhallowed hinterlands of the human mind—this event will induce you to lock the door and check under your bed for the foreseeable future!
