Hello and welcome to another episode of Ohio Mysteries: Backroads. In this episode we travel back in time to 1910 and explore a record breaking flight by pioneer aviator Glenn Curtiss. He flew from Euclid Beach to Cedar Point beach, 60 miles away. Curtiss would break the world's record in the process with over 100,00 people witnessing this flight which broke the world's record set the previous year by Louis Bleriot when he crossed the English Channel. 68 years later this flight would be recreated by Chuck Slusarczky when he attempted the same flight only in an ultralight aircraft with a much different outcome.

Ep 274 - Stanley Meyer: Inventor or fraud? In 1998, Stan Meyer - who had made headlines claiming he found a way to power cars using water instead of gasoline - was having dinner with Belgian investors when he drank his juice, grabbed his throat, and proclaimed he had just been poisoned. He died the next day. The Franklin County Coroner said Meyer died of a brain aneurysm, not poison, but supporters still wonder if someone killed Meyer to stop his work. Others, however, insist Stan was a charlatan, and his water fuel design a hoax. www.ohiomysteries.com feedback@ohiomysteries.com www.patreon.com/ohiomysteries www.twitter.com/mysteriesohio www.facebook.com/ohiomysteries Additional music: New Horizon - Aderin; Audionautix- The Great Unknown; The Great Phospher- Daniel Birch Learn more about your ad choices.

On Aug. 20, 1794, General "Mad" Anthony Wayne launched a new professional army formed by Pres. George Washington against a confederation of Native Americans who did not want to be forced out of Ohio.

In May of 1865, something happened that had never happened before. Twenty bandits derailed a train for the purpose of robbing its passengers and stealing bonds from its safe. The event, which happened in the Hamilton County village of North Bend, marked an evolution of the old highwaymen who used to rob stagecoaches. It was an era that also ended in Ohio, with the last great train heist recorded in Garrettsville, Ohio in 1935.  www.ohiomysteries.com feedback@ohiomysteries.com www.patreon.com/ohiomysteries www.twitter.com/mysteriesohio www.facebook.com/ohiomysteries Additional music: New Horizon - Aderin; Audionautix- The Great Unknown; The Great Phospher- Daniel Birch Learn more about your ad choices.

In 2009, an Akron woman was shot dead by a man who stood on her porch and knocked on her door. The next year, a second woman was killed when she answered the door. And in 2015, Akron police found a third Akron woman dead on her friends back porch. There is no reason to think these murders are connected, and they were barely covered by local media. But tonight, we remember the unsolved murders of Diane Mitchell-McMillian, Gwendolyn Hoisten and Duetta Nurse. www.ohiomysteries.com feedback@ohiomysteries.com www.patreon.com/ohiomysteries www.twitter.com/mysteriesohio www.facebook.com/ohiomysteries Additional music: Jeremusic 70 New Horizon - Aderin; Audionautix- The Great Unknown; The Great Phospher- Daniel Birch Learn more about your ad choices.

I grew up in East Liverpool, but I've never heard of this (although I was born in the 80s). I'm going to have to ask my family if they remember!

I can't wait for the next one! Holy crap what happened to Mary&Ricky?? This is extra weird for me because my ex lived on Dan Street for years and had grown up in North Hill, so I can literally picture everything about this neighbor. Extra bizarre.

Vortex of evil- it sure felt like it growing up there that year, too. I've always felt that Kathy Menendez got blown off because she was "an habitual runaway" by the people who were supposed to get justice no matter who she was. I don't care how much of a bratty kid somebody was, they don't deserve to die like that. As a kid, I always assumed "found naked, beaten, and strangled" was code for "raped and killed". I wonder if they even bothered with a rape kit. Her poor mother. I also have doubts about there being a sniper. Local rumor is that it was a specific hit, meant to send a message to Portage County Sheriff's Department. Poor Sarah Boehm. My gut says her dad did it. Killed her in PA because he was afraid she'd tell her counselor he'd been abusing her, then when Kathy turned up, it's only what, a 2, 3 hour drive, to dispose of Sarah's body in the same beaten, strangled, naked condition? Good way to muddle the investigation. It may have worked. He later plead guilty to, what was it,

What are the odds of Lester Eubanks, a repeat rapist, having never raped again? Pretty slim, I'd say. Here's hoping they get his DNA and actually get him.
