Fire damages Kansas house where 'In Cold Blood' killings occurred

The Wichita Eagle


An unattended cigarette is being blamed for a fire that damaged the house in southwest Kansas where Herb Clutter and his family were murdered on a November night in 1959. The fire was reported just after 7:30 p.m. at the house on the edge of Holcomb, Garden City Fire Chief Allen Shelton said. The fire was contained to a bedroom, he said, but heat and smoke damage spread to the rest of the house and water damage accumulated in the basement

Donna Mader, the 74-year-old woman who lives at the house, was not hurt in the fire.

The house was in rural Finney County when Perry Smith and Dick Hickock, on parole from the state penitentiary, murdered Herb and Bonnie Clutter and their children Nancy, 16, and Kenyon, 15, on Nov. 15, 1959

Though interest in the case and the house remains high, Shelton said, Mader does not give tours of her home.
