Exploring some of the most extraordinary and challenging murder cases to ever face the police which took place in the closed and secretive world of America’s Amish community.
Dramatic, original and revealing, Murder in Amish Country features some of the most extraordinary and challenging murder cases to ever face the police. All the killings take place in the closed and secretive world of America’s Amish community which is notoriously distrustful of the outside world, very often preferring to deal with matters of justice internally.
A wife inexplicably slaughtered in a frenzied knife attack, a husband slowly poisoned to death, a missing woman’s body is finally discovered in a basement… all these cases and more push detectives to the limit as they try to find justice in a world where no-one wants to speak to them. As one cop puts it: "It was easier getting information from the Mob than from the Amish".
