By the time Mudgett moved from New Hampshire to Chicago in 1885, He now went by Holmes, and had married and abandoned three wives without bothering to divorce any of them. In Chicago he ran a pharmacy and across the street from it, erected an elaborate home for himself. Which would later become infamously known as Holmes’s Murder Castle.
