31. Blood on the Plow

In the 1980’s farmers were dealing with an economic crisis that few had lived through before them. 

Many who had always lived on the money that was generated by the agriculture they grew, were now facing financial ruin. The stress of the situation wreaked havoc on many farms across the Midwest and often that stress led to tragedy. 

On September 25, 1987, police were called to a local Missouri farm by a man who said he had just been shot. When the officers arrived on the scene, what they witnessed could only be described as a nightmare come to life.
