Dr. Edgar Epperly began researching the 1912 Villisca, Iowa axe murders as a college student. In 1955 he traveled to Villisca for the first time with two friends where they interviewed Dr. Cooper, the first physician to examine the victims and the crime scene. Dr. Epperly is a newly retired Professor of Education at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. His research into the crime is ongoing. He is co-authoring a book with Tammy and Kelly Rundle on the famous unsolved murder and is the primary consultant on the documentary "Villisca: Living With a Mystery."
