‘The Horrors of Fox Hollow Farm’ is Part True Crime, Part Ghost Story


In 1996 Herb Baumeister “allegedly” murdered at least eleven men at or around his home at Fox Hollow Farm. With no court case, and confession, Herb Baumeister was never charged with the murders of many transients and gentlemen picked up at gay bars. Baumeister would go on to run to Canada and commit suicide, but that doesn’t seem to be the end for residents of the home. Robert Graves, the current owner, and paranomal investigator Richard Estep have worked together to put together the new book The Horrors of Fox Hollow Farm.

The infamous Indiana property sat empty for a while, until the Graves family purchased it to turn it into their family home. The book The Horrors of Fox Hollow Farm puts together the bits and pieces of a true crime story, as well as the strange and frightening paranormal encounters that still occur in the home, even as of today. The book features an interview with a man who escaped the attempt on his life, though he is referred to by the alias “Tony” throughout the book.

One of my favorite parts of the book is Robert Graves discussing when Ghost Adventures came to investigate the house. As Zak Baggans is sort of laughed at among the ghost and paranormal community, it was interesting to hear Graves treat the cast with respect, but also indicate that he did not agree with their findings. Richard Estep’s investigation comes from a first person description and is much more detailed.

The Horrors of Fox Hollow Farm is available from Llewellyn Press September 8, 2019.
