“El Petiso Orejudo” — The Kid who Terrorized 1912 Argentina

This is the story of Cayetano Santos Godino.

As a note, the details of this case involve the brutal murders of small children. It was hard for me to write at times. If you need to click out of this and go look at cute pictures of baby ducks, let me help you.

On December 4th 1912, in Buenos Aires, the family of a three-year-old boy gathered around his casket getting ready to do what they hoped they would never have to do.
