Sound Off: Benders

I just heard on the TV that they’re going to make a movie of the murdering Benders of Kansas. I was just wondering what city or town they had their diner.

The Benders, a family of serial killers who reportedly murdered at least 11 people in the 1870s, owned an inn/general store (where they are said to have procured their victims) in the southeastern Kansas county of Labette, northeast of the town of Cherryvale.
