On June 20, 1985, police ignited a media frenzy when they raided a farm house just outside of Toledo, OH. They expected to find weapons, drugs, and the High Warlock of a secretive satanic cult. Then came the bulldozers.
They said they'd find 50 to 75 bodies, all alleged victims of human sacrifice. After 3 days of digging, they found nothing.
Using media reports, eyewitness interviews, and never-before-seen police files, Digging Up Devils tells the incredible true story of the Toledo Cult Investigation of 1985. Looking to similar moral panics across the nation, Digging Up Devils finally unravels the mystery behind the greatest case that never was.
"Digging Up Devils tells the previously untold tale of an imaginary cult dreamed up by conspiracists in rural Ohio, and the subsequent devastation that followed. Author Jack Legg has compiled original interviews and previously unreleased documentary evidence to tell a story that is both unique and indicative of the larger moral panic at the same time. For those familiar with Satanic Panic literature to date, this book is an excellent addition. For those with little familiarity with any particular cases of Satanic Panic, this is as good a place as any to start. May it help us to better navigate the rough waters ahead." - Lucien Greaves, Co-Founder of the Satanic Temple
