THE SECRET IN THE BASEMENT - The True Story of Gertrude Baniszewski
It was called the most terrible crime ever committed in Indiana, and half a century later, that title still holds. Sylvia Likens’s emaciated corpse was discovered by police covered with more than 150 wounds ranging from burns to cuts—sprawled on a filthy mattress in the Indianapolis home of 37-year-old Gertrude Baniszewski, mother of seven and the architect of the girl’s gruesome death.
