On November 15, 1959, four members of the Clutter family were murdered in their own house in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas in the middle of the night by two strangers looking for money that was never there. The story of the murder and its consequences has been told in the book In Cold Blood by capote' class='brand-secondary'>Truman Capote as well as the movie In Cold Blood and the movie Capote.
