There have been many hostage situations that end in murder, and what happened at the Hi-Fi shop in Ogden, Utah, was one of the most gruesome hostage situations in the US. On the evening of April 22, 1974, six men robbed the electronics store and held the clerks, an unlucky teenager, and two worried parents hostage. The hostages were forced to drink Drano and were savagely tortured. Some were killed, while others suffered lifelong injuries and trauma from the attack.
While many hostage situations end with the perpetrator committing suicide or getting shot by police, the Hi-Fi murderers made it out alive. In fact, three of the men were never captured for their part in the robbery. These Ogden Hi-Fi murder facts are incredibly appalling and graphic, so read about these brutal murders in Utah with caution.
