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.

Halloween is Weird World’s favorite holiday. One sick man and his giant Pixy Stix almost ruined Halloween forever back on a dark day in Texas in 1974.
You’ve heard of Children of the Damned. You’ve heard of Children of the Corn. You’ve heard of Sweet Child of Mine. Now we have kids with soulless black eyes who invade your personal space - and want to inside your house.
He could scratch you and spit blue flame in your face, then run away really fast and leap moderately high walls in a single bound. He was Spring-Heeled Jack and he terrorized England in the 19th century.

Did Flight 513 bound for Santiago, Chile finally land - 35 years after it took off? If so, did the airline’s on-time record ever recover? And wait until you find out what happened to the passengers…
Jay Z and Beyonce. Kanye and probably Kim. Eminem. Well, pretty much all of hip hop, but also Obama and the Bushes and Queen Elizabeth. All modern members of the Illuminati - the most dangerous group you are not allowed to know about.
