Episode Info:

Today I tell the story as told on the Denver Orbit Podcast about Colorado Cannibal Alfred Packer. Alfred wandered into the woods with 5 men in the winter of 1874 and he was the only one to walk out alive. He was spending money from multiple men's wallets and telling conflicting stories about what happened to the 5 other men. Rumors began to spread about how Ute women saw him toss a human arm into the river at a campsite, how he looked well fed and healthy when he wandered out of the woods and how he enjoyed dining on human flesh as a hobby. However, exactly what happened in those mountains that winter will never be known.
