He might have been the Black Dahlia killer and he was for sure a monster living in Los Angeles luxury in the middle of the 20th century. Learn the true story behind the I Am The Night miniseries.
He was 7-feet tall with wings and glowing red eyes, and lived in an old dynamite plant. You’d be scared too if he chased you down in your car going 100 mph. Let’s hear it for the Mothman.
Part ghost, part poltergeist, part demonic possession, and all scary, the Bell Witch terrorized an early American family for years and didn’t rest until she killed John Bell. At least that’s how the story goes…
For our 100th episode we have a quiz show culled from all the weird stuff we’ve talked about over the last almost two years. Get your #2 pencil and see how weird you are. (I bet you do better than Emma.)
Blood and footprints and little else told the story of what happened to 15-year old Evelyn Hartley when she disappeared from the house where she was babysitting. Ed Gein, the inspiration for Psycho, was right down the street…
13 year old babysitter Janett Christman was murdered while calling the police, screaming for help. Was it the classic urban legend of the killer calling from inside the house? Or was it someone closer to home?…
Molasses: the silent terror. Or at least it was for 21 Bostonians who were killed by a massive flood of the sticky ingredient for cookies and rum in 1919.
What was the massive tentacled heap that washed up on the shore of St. Augustine, Florida in 1896? The local expert thought it was the biggest octopus the world had ever known. Was it?

In Part 2 of the disappearance of Jerry Michael Williams, we explore the suspicions aimed at a wife who married her husband’s best friend - the same friend who sold him nearly $2 million in life insurance.
When a man went missing in Florida, they saw the empty boat and waders and blamed it on an alligator. But was it something more sinister? Join us for the first part of a case that is still twisting and turning to this day.
We bring you more of the most remarkable coincidences in the annals of crime, including an unlucky nurse who may have been a serial killer, the very unlucky Palmer Brothers, and the story of Liquid Matthew who may or may not have been boiled in oil.
The Stone Age society on North Sentinel Island has been isolated for thousands of years - and will do anything to keep it that way. One American missionary just tragically found that out the hard way.
There have been too many weird coincidences in crime to fit into one episode, so we did two. First we bring you the infamous Whit Monday murders - two women murdered, their bodies found 300 yards apart, same age, both out dancing, both allegedly murdered by men named Thornton. The catch? The murders happened 157 years apart.
What can burn a body to cinder in hours without damaging flammable objects right next to it? Nothing, that’s what. Nothing except Spontaneous Human Combustion.
Do you like to conjure demons and evil spirits? Do you have an endless supply of candles and mirrors? If the answer to these questions is not just “Yes,” but “Hell yes!” then you need to listen. But first go get a candle and stare into a mirror.
