    In the late 1800s, Austin fell prey to a crazed murderer with an axe. Seven women and one man were killed by the Servant Girl Annihilator, while six more women and two more men were brutally attacked. The killer would attack in the dead of night. He dragged most of his victims outside before brutalizing them with an axe. The killer tore across Austin for just under a year. Then, just like that, the attacks ceased.

    A serial killer, who became known as the Servant Girl Annihilator, preyed upon the city of Austin, Texas, during the years 1884 and 1885. The killer's name originated with the writer O. Henry.

    The series of eight axe murders were referred to by contemporary sources as the Servant Girl Murders.

    The December 26, 1885, issue of The New York Times reported that the "murders were committed by some cunning madman, who is insane on the subject of killing women".
