“NASTY GNOMES, EVIL IMPS, AND TERRIFYING TOMMYKNOCKERS” and More True Terrors! #WeirdDarknessIN THIS EPISODE: Did she drown? Did she commit suicide? Despite her death in 1889, we still don’t know how Maggie Hourigan died. (The Mystery of Maggie Hourigan) *** In 1958 Gavin Gibbons wrote a children’s science-fiction novel By Space Ship to the Moon, which featured a UFO landing on Moel Sych in the Berwyn Mountains of North Wales. Sixteen years later, in a surreal case of life imitating art, those very same mountains would again be the focus for a story involving a downed UFO. But this time, some said, the story was for real. (The UFO Case That Refuses to Die) *** Greer Island, a small patch of land close to where the West Fork of the Trinity River flows into Lake Worth, is heavily shaded by tall oaks, cedar elms and cottonwoods. One of the quietest spots in Fort Worth, the island is home to egrets and owls, perhaps an alligator or two. And maybe, just maybe, the Lake Worth Monster. (The Lake Worth Monster) *** In 2017, Washington State Senator Karen Keiser was quoted as saying, “The incidents continue, they continue, and we have to consider that there is potential cosmic life over the island… it’s a very special place, with a cosmic presence.” What exactly happened on Maurey Island in 1947? (The Maurey Island Incident) *** Whether you’re a true believer or one of those skeptics, stories of spirits haunting the living from the confines of a Ouija board can chill you to the bone, and make you think twice before communicating with entities from another dimension. (True And Disturbing Ouija Board Stories) *** What if creatures like gnomes and imps aren’t just real – but also evil?

“MURDER MANSION OF LOS ANGELES” and 5 More True, Disturbing Stories! #WeirdDarknessIN THIS EPISODE: A fifteen year old Wisconsin girl disappeared on April 3rd 1996 – and to this day it’s a mystery where she is or what has become of her. (Where Is Sara Bushland?) *** Many neighborhoods have at least one creepy house that has inspired ghost stories. That house in Los Feliz, California, located at 2475 Glendower Place, was dubbed the “Murder Mansion” - with good reason. (Murder Mansion of Los Angeles) *** What would you do if you were doing some construction in your home or business, and found a hidden bottle full of fish hooks, human teeth, shards of glass and an unidentified liquid? (The Witch Bottle In The Pub) *** A recent survey shows that 40 percent of Americans believe that a place can be haunted. Are you one of them? If so, you’re in good company here with the rest of the Weirdo Family. Glen Wershing is a believer as well – and has come to that conclusion through personal experience when moving into his new home. (A New Jersey Haunting) *** We look at some of the secret séance rituals of America’s largest Spiritualist community in New York.

“ROBERT PICKTON: THE SERIAL KILLER PIG FARMER” and 3 More Serial Killer! #WeirdDarknessIN THIS EPISODE: By all observable accounts, Herb Baumeister was an admire-able family man, living on a beautiful million-dollar estate and farm with his lovely wife and three children. But they were also sharing that estate with a very dark secret that would eventually be revealed thanks to on of their children accidentally stumbling upon the grave of one of Herb’s numerous murder victims. (The Serial Killer Next Door) *** Behind his quiet demeanor lurked a brutal killer. He was eventually caught, but perhaps not brought to complete justice. Though Robert Hansen admitted to murdering seventeen people, one woman most all are sure he murdered is Beth van Zanten – but he insists she was not one of them. (Robert Hansen, The Alaskan Serial Killer) *** He's confessed to a staggering 93 murders thus far—and the FBI believes all his confessions are credible.

“THE WITCH OF PLUM HOLLOW” and 6 More Creepy True Stories! #WeirdDarknessIN THIS EPISODE: A 178-year-old mystery comes to the surface in a Philadelphia suburb. (Grandfather's Ghost Story Leads to Mass Grave) *** Recently a wrecking crew began tearing down and old building in Rhode Island. But the big burly men on the crew got so frightened they refused to continue the work. Does reconstruction of a home or building anger the souls who once lived there? (Does Remodeling Your Home Disturb The Spirits Who Died There?) *** The way life has grown on our planet requires that all living things feed off each other and must kill others in order to survive.  That’s the way of the world if you want to live for any more than a few days. But some people are now claiming they can live without food at all… indefinitely. (Life Without Food) *** Three men were in a shed selling gardening supplies when some strange powder suddenly hit the ceiling. Before they had time to react, a small jug on a shelf abruptly flew across the room. One man picked up the jug and placed it a covered box. Instantly, the jug was...somehow...back on the floor. And that was just the beginning of the strange haunting of a community’s garden shed. (The Poltergeist In The Allotment Shed) *** In the movie Salt, Angelina Jolie plays a double-agent who is mind-controlled by scary remnants of the USSR secret service. And in real life, the 1940s bombshell Candy Jones was apparently brainwashed with drugs and used as a CIA covert operative.  (The Supermodel Who Was Brainwashed Into Becoming a Spy) *** No one knows exactly when she was born. Some think, maybe, she was a gypsy. Others say she was the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter. The life of Elizabeth Barnes is a mysterious one, filled with many loves, losses, and prognostications. (The Witch of Plum Hollow) *** Some travelers, arriving late at night to board Oliver’s Ferry the next day, stayed at Oliver’s house. But they were never seen making the ferry crossing the next morning. Is it possible that the rumors are true – that they never left the house alive?

“THE HAUNTED SMETHWICK BATHS” and More Strange But True Tales! #WeirdDarknessIN THIS EPISODE: A 1930s art deco swimming pool is not the first place you think of when people mention the most haunted places in the country. So why is this 85-year-old building bursting at the seams with spirits and specters? The answer to that is not any easy one to give.  (The Haunted Smethwick Baths) *** They look strange, there’s a weird otherworldliness to them, when encountered people often find the’ve lost hours of time with no memory, and the beings are often known to abduct people in the middle of the night. It sounds like I’m describing alien abduction – but the same, all of it, can also be said of fairie folk in European legend. Is it possible there is a connection? Could the mythical fairies of old actually be the extraterrestrials we tell stories about today? (The Extraterrestrials Want Twinkies) *** Elsie Eiler pays taxes... to herself. She grants her own liquor license to herself for the tavern she owns – which is possible when you are the mayor… and bartender… and law enforcement, and even the librarian.

(Sentient Fireballs and Biting Lights) *** Cattle sometimes die suddenly on Silvies Valley Ranch’s 140,000 acres in Harney County — struck by disease or felled by a broken leg and unable to find a way out of the rugged, forested terrain. But by the time ranch hands discovered four more dead bulls within 24 hours, they knew they were likely dealing with deliberate, premeditated killings. (Oregon Cattle Mutilations) *** To quote one survivor of a near-death experience: “I know of no English words for the combination of joy, ecstasy, love, and requited longing that burned within me.

It includes a pig woman and a preacher – that’s how strange. It’s the still unsolved Hall-Mills murders of 1922. (The Pig Woman, The Preacher, and Murder) *** Hannah Beswick was so frightened by the idea of being accidentally buried alive, that she even told her doctor that upon her death she was not to be buried – just in case they’d pronounced her deceased a bit too early. And that was the beginning of her very strange afterlife.

“MELLIFICATION: THE SWEET TASTING SIDE OF CORPSE MEDICINE” (PLUS BLOOPERS!) #WeirdDarknessIN THIS EPISODE: Of all the instances of cannibalism found in human history, no one quite practiced it like some in China used to. In these cases, cannibalism came in the form of eating mellified flesh for medicinal purposes. In 16th century China, mellification was a way for elderly people nearing the end of their lives to donate their body to science. The idea, originally derived from an Arabic recipe, was that they could turn their bodies into medicine that would be ingested by their descendants to alleviate ailments like broken bones. The process of mellification was a gruesome one. In short, it consisted of very slowly turning one’s body into a mummified human candy bar. And that’s not even the worst part — for mellification to be the most effective, the process started while the person was still alive.(Dark Archives episode originally posted March 09, 2020)SOURCES AND ESSENTIAL WEB LINKS…“And Mellified Man for Dessert” by Katie Serena: https://tinyurl.com/rjwv5cw“Honey, I’m Dead” by Paul Salopek: https://tinyurl.com/wz23h9d “Sugar-Glazed Grandpa” by Brent Swancer: https://tinyurl.com/w2mqzyp “Self-Mummification” from Stranger Remains: https://tinyurl.com/w795gxp “Better Health Through Cannibalism” by Natalie Zarrelli: https://tinyurl.com/tsqhqbl “Corpse Medicine” by Maria Dolan: https://tinyurl.com/y6spcbcb Subscribe to the podcast by searching for Weird Darkness wherever you listen to podcasts – or use this RSS feed link: https://www.spreaker.com/show/3655291/episodes/feed.Weird Darkness theme by Alibi Music Library.

The FBI is probably the least credible organization in the world to talk about domestic terrorism, seeing how much of their illicit activities against citizens have been exposed these past few years. Even regular jurors don't believe them anymore, just look at the results of their fake Whitmer kidnapping scheme.

Love the podcasts I have been a listener for a long time now. Unfortunately the episodes are repeating more frequently just in different orders. I think maybe the shows are aired too often, there is only so much new content out there. Too many advertisements too many repeats for me now.

wanna find out more info on the missing women's case? Go back and y'all again to the "witnesses" who claim they seen the girls in other places after the 1st boat ride. The ones who made the claims that couldn't be confirmed.

just because a slave had knowledge of hoodoo or voodoo doesn't specifically mean they came from Louisiana. Also, hoodoo and voodoo was complete opposite, as in one was conducted good and one bad.

Have you heard of Gypsy Rose? Dr Phil did an episode of her story on his podcast. Long story short she met a guy online who ended up violently murdering her mother and he claimed he was a centuries old vampire too.

when did this show get all Jesus like? It seems like every single episode you now announce your faith. Thankfully I like ghost and aliens much more, but maybe you don't have to always bring it up.
