Cleveland’s Abandoned Suspension Bridge Has A Horrific Past-The Torso Murders
The Sideway Bridge in Cleveland, Ohio is it's only suspension bridge, It's abandoned and the site of several horrific murders.
Originally called the Tod-Kinsman Bridge and built as a foot bridge in 1909. It was later rebuilt from steel to allow trains to cross below it. In the 1930's, just after it reopened to the public, a series of murders took place there. According to Cleveland Historical,
Just a few years after the new bridge opened and pedestrian travel across the Kingsbury Run resumed, the Run became locally notorious as the result of a series of grisly murders, known as the Cleveland Torso Murders, which occurred between 1935-1938. At least 12 women were murdered in the stretch and, in at least four of the murders, the women's mutilated corpses were dumped at various locations there.
These murders have never been solved and probably never will be.
In the late 60's the bridge was partially destroyed by rioters.
