The Daughter Who Discovered Her Dad Was a Serial Killer: ‘He Just Managed to Fool Everybody’

April Balascio was an adult with three children when she finally sat down to search for answers to a question that had eaten at her for years: Was her father — a charming and violent man, obsessed with crime — capable of something monstrous?

The truth, she eventually learned, was yes.

She connected the dots in part because of her own internet sleuthing, and her dad, Edward Wayne Edwards, was arrested in 2009 after a fateful phone call Balascio made to investigators with what she knew.

His eventual confession showed he had murdered at least five people, including his own son.

The case’s twists and turns will be the focus of Monday night’s People Magazine Investigates, on Investigation Discovery, and is featured on this week’s cover, on newsstands now.

I Turned in My Serial Killer Father: How April Balascio Discovered Her Dad Murdered at Least 5

One day in 1980, when April Balascio was 11 years old, her father, Edward Wayne Edwards, woke up the household and told his wife and kids to start packing. They were leaving Watertown, Wisconsin, where they’d lived for about a year — and they were leaving immediately.

The scenario wasn’t unfamiliar: The Edwards family was nomadic, roaming from town to town every six months to a year, at their father’s whim, and often without warning.

Another researcher, Max Strnand, found a work facility where 200 prisoners laboured with its train line, warehouse and tower intact.
