Sometimes People Talk Too MuchMs. Henderson's Communications class assignment? Tell a true story to the class.
Julie Peters said, "This is the scariest story I've ever heard!" She proceeded to tell the class about 'Hacking Helen'. Helen Henderson had used an axe to brutally murder her mother and two young brothers.
She told of Helen's lack of remorse during the trial, and how she smiled sweetly while the coroner described the victims' injuries in gory detail.
In 1982, Helen was released from the state asylum upon her 21st birthday, and she simply disappeared.
Whispering to Julie, Ms. Henderson said,"My family would still be alive if they hadn't told tales about me."
