D.C. Legends and Lore: Fairfax County's Bunnyman

In nearby Fairfax County, there's a local legend about a mysterious killer who gutted his victims like rabbits. While the tale may be false, the truth is even more creepy. “A creepy guy, on Halloween, dressed oddly, throwing hatchets at people…it’s just too bizarre to possibly be true,” says Fairfax County Archivist Brian Conley, “But it is.”

Join us as we learn the real facts behind this sordid story with Fairfax County Archivist Brian Conley, who has dug into the archives, old newspaper articles, and police reports to uncover a tale that's weirder than the lore.

Afterward, we will have a very special screening of the 2001 cult classic horror film Donnie Darko, which is believed to have pulled inspiration from the exploits of Fairfax County's Bunnyman.
