WITH THE HALLOWEEN SEASON UPON US I’VE GOT A CREEPY CASE HERE FOR Y’ALL. FIRST OFF, SORRY, SOME OF THE VIDEO QUALITY IS NOT FANTASTIC IN THIS FILM. SIMPLY PUT: I CUT THE FILM ON FINAL CUT, OF WHICH THE OUTPUT VIDEO IS NOT USUALLY YOUTUBE FRIENDLY… THUS I HAD TO EXPORT IT AGAIN THROUGH MY MORE YOUTUBE-FRIENDLY SOFTWARE AND YA ALWAYS GONNA LOSE A LITTLE QUALITY THAT WAY. THIS MOSTLY JUST OCCURS WITH THE VIDEO CLIPS OF ME, WHICH MAKE UP A SMALL AMOUNT OF THE OVERALL FILM.

It’s one of Oregon’s most enduring murder mysteries: Who murdered William and Ruth Hill and their two children in 1911. At around 12:45 a.m. on June 9, 1911 somebody went into the small two-room cabin of the Hill family, living in the Ardenwald neighborhood of what is now Milwaukie, Oregon (near its border with Portland), and hacked them all to death with an axe that was left behind at the scene. Murdered were William Hill, his wife Ruth Hill and their two kids from Ruth’s first marriage: Philip, 8, and Dorothy, 6. There have been several suspects in the case but nobody has ever been tried and convicted in the case and to this day it is still an unsolved cold case with no likelihood of it being officially resolved in the future.In this film I go to the locations prevalent in this mystery as well as delving into the story and looking at all the suspects in the case and who was most likely involved, if any of them were at all. I also address a long standing theory that the killing of the Hill family may be associated with a series of other unsolved axe killings that occurred all over America during 1911 and 1912. Just about anything you could want to know about this case you’ll see here!
