Butchered in the Valley (Charles Kennedy)

Episode 5,   Apr 19, 2023, 05:00 AM

In 1870 New Mexico, few things get people in the saddle like the prospect of a bright and shiny future – especially in the form of gold. Big and small make pilgrimages to the mountains "Sangre de Cristo" (Blood of Christ) with an ambition and a hope to find both gold and green forests.

But not everyone in the mountains considers gold to be the greatest treasure, and soon it is not only the blood of Christ that flows in the mountains. What dangers lurk in the borderlands besides bears and cougars? And how far are people willing to go for their dreams?

From Podimo and Vespucci — this is The Darkness Vaults, released weekly on Wednesday.
