This is the True Crime IRL Murder Minute with Kelli Berens-Brink and I’m here to tell you the story of the I-70 Strangler.
From the 1980s until 1996, Herbert Baumeister would go to gay bars to pick up men and lure them to his indoor pool to kill them. The pool area was set up very strangely, with a bunch of mannequins that looked like they were enjoying a pool party. Hey I’m not kink shaming or anything…to each their own, but this guy was creepy AF. Just one look at his picture, and you can see the murder vibe in his eyes. He strangled at least two dozen men, dumped many of their bodies along I-70 in Indiana, AND buried several more on his own property. Like a true coward, he fled to Canada and committed suicide before he could be brought to trial. This has been your True Crime IRL Murder Minute – 1 murder in 1 minute, and I’m Kelli Berens-Brink. Until next time…Lock your doors, people! And don’t go home with weirdos! Lock those doors! Bye bye!
