Crime Library: Criminal Minds and Methods

Today in Crime History: The Maneater of Colorado is born

Alfred Packer was born on November 21, 1842 (though some say it was in January) and was still a young man when the Civil War broke out. Epilepsy got him out of the military, so Packer became a prospector. During an expedition, Packer’s party got lost and he was later accused of eating his companions.
