In the 1955 film The Night of the Hunter, greedy self-ordained minister, Reverend Harry Powell, portrayed by Robert Mitchum, kills women and terrorizes children. The hackneyed expression that truth is stranger than fiction, in this case, is not hyperbole. On a small farm in Quiet Dell, eight miles southeast of Clarksburg, West Virginia, two middle-aged women and three children were starved and murdered in the summer of 1931. The five bodies recovered were only intended to be a beginning. Others were scheduled for the abattoir. Meet Harry Powers, also known as Bluebeard, Mail Order Romeo/Don Juan, Slaughterhouse Harry, Human Tarantula, and Love Racketeer, one of the most enigmatic and until now, unstudied, sociopaths of the 20th century.
