While surfing around I came across a serial killer known as Jacob Kell. In 1945 he killed his parents, and went on a killing spree. I came upon a page where there was some information.The person who posted the page made mention there were news stories at the time,but the number of victims outside of his parents varied
according to the news stories. There was a photo of an abandoned car with the victims bodies covered by sheets and it was from a newspaper. Someone also sent the page owner a photo of a home said to belong to Kell's last victims,the Macardies I believe. Apparently vigilanties who went in search of the killer shot him at the home of his last victims. They also mentioned that a number of tombstones at Wenden ,Az. say September 1945,but don't recall if it gave a date.

Thats like there was a fellow in Arizona or New Mexico named Dean Farrin or Fearin. He kidnaped a young nurse and took her to an abandoned adobe church and murdered her. Only details about her death ever released was she was bound and whipped with red hot wires.This also took place in the 1930s or 40s.
Anyone ever heard of this first one. I'm a true crime buff, but these are really obscure cases.

This is a fictitious person that was created for a haunted attraction's story line. The haunted house used to be The Nest, but is now part of the Rob Zombie Great American Nightmare attraction in West World this year.

You are both correct. Jacob Kell was real, and he was included in a haunted house at Rawhide in 2012. Terror gets personal at The Nest haunted house at Rawhide - East Valley Tribune: Events

There is a movie about Jacob Kell, just called JACOB, IMDb link: Jacob (2011) - IMDb


I have yet to find a book on the guy.


I've heard of Danny Farrin but I was told he killed his wife and daughter and left them wearing clown makeup. It's hard to believe a story THAT good wouldn't have a true-crime story written about it sometime! So it might just be a lot of hot air.

It's a lot of hot air. There is no trace of this person online. This is very common for the haunted attraction industry to create story lines like these. I worked in the industry for 15 years
