THE GHOST THAT ATE US The Tragic True Story of the Burger City Poltergeist

by | Read by Kirby Heyborne

Mystery & Suspense • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrator Kirby Heyborne takes on this oddly humorous, somewhat macabre tale of murder. The author describes his story of the 2017 massacre of six people in a fast food joint in Jonny, Iowa, as a "true-crime-style mockumentary." Heyborne's matter-of-fact tone sounds journalistic as he describes ghosts and the haunting of the Burger City drive-through, sucking listeners into this unbelievable tale. Heyborne reserves his few tonal shifts for the recitation of newspaper accounts and the interjection of footnotes. He handles the minute details of each employee and victim, as well as the killer, with the utmost seriousness, no matter how bizarre or gruesome.
