Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: "It was a terrible sight… I have seen horrible sights, but never anything like this.” Those were the words of the local undertaker after seeing the results of a triple murder laying before him in 1932 Pennsylvania. (The Axe Murders of Lykens) *** Have you heard of the poor girl who was bullied and pushed down into a sewer by those whom she thought were her friends? I’ll tell you the story. And while this episode is not a creepypasta episode, so all the stories are supposed to be non-fiction, that is… true, I will be sharing this urban legend anyway – because when it comes to urban legends, sometimes it’s best to err on the side of caution and simply assume they are true. (The Urban Legend of Carmen Winstead) *** A gypsy once told Leonarda that all of her children would die before her.  A different fortuneteller  told her that she faced either a future in prison or in a criminal asylum. And the reason she gave for becoming a serial killer is something you’d hear out of a bad direct-to-video horror film. And that’s a tiny sample of this woman’s insanely dark life – which began even before her birth. (The Woman Who Made Soap) *** Ireland’s Loftus Hall is considered by many to be the most haunted location on all the Emerald Isle. But the most infamous story of Loftus Hall begins not with terror, but with romance… with a beautiful young girl falling madly in love with… the devil. (The Girl Who Fell In Love With The Devil) *** Weirdo Family member Brad Hicks describes the experience as “cool… and creepy as hell”. We’ll tell you his story.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Many years before Adolph Hitler and Germany’s Nazis created Auschwitz, there was another concentration camp that experienced deaths in tens of thousands. But this encampment of turpitude wasn’t located in Germany – or anywhere near Europe. It was located in the land of the free… the home of the brave. The USA. (The Devil’s Punchbowl) *** Several people have returned from their near-death experiences reporting they were briefly in the fiery pits of hell. Is there any truth to their claims? (They Escaped Hell’s Clutches) *** Have you ever seen what appears to be a shadow person or dark figure (stationary or moving) with your own eyes, close up or far away, ​maybe even in your peripheral vision or dream state? Perhaps you have felt the sensation of someone  standing behind you and then you turn around but no one was there? What is it that you are seeing when this happens? (Who Are The Shadow People?) *** She looms large in the annals of American crime lore. A romantic relationship gone awry and troubles at home could explain why many still believe Lizzie Borden killed her parents.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: A man in Louisiana has a magnetic personality. Not for the ladies… but for the paranormal. (Paranormal Magnet Man) *** A truck-driver was not prepared for what he experienced one summer night at a tiny truck stop in the middle of nowhere... hardly the place where one would expect a ghost… if that's what it even was. (Phantom of the Truck Stop) *** No animal had ever made such sounds. Neither the lions of East Africa nor the angry bulls. At times, it sounded like a veritable herd of wild beasts orchestrated by Satan had formed a hellish choir. And that was only a small part of the demonic possession of a girl named Clara Germana Cele. (Demonic Possession In South Africa) *** Weirdo family member Cass tells her story of a disturbing dream, a sick friend, and the temptation to sell her soul in order to save her. (El Diablo) *** Megaladon… a shark several times larger than a great white. For our sake, it’s a good thing it’s extinct… or is it? Some pretty powerful sightings have been reported recently. (Real Sightings of Megaladon) *** In 2016,  there was something of a folk panic in Yorkshire, northern England, following reported sightings of an eight-foot werewolf with a very human face. It’s known as the Beast of Barmston Drain – but most people call him “Old Stinker”.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: 7-year-old Maria went missing in 1957, and while her body was later found, her murder was never solved and the case went cold – until 50 years later when the case was finally solved and closed. But it turns out everybody was wrong. (A Cold Case Finally Solved… Then Unsolved) *** If you take State Route 375 through Nevada you will pass by the infamous Area-51. But of course they are not going to let you in, even if you ask nicely. But State Route 375 isn’t called the Extraterrestrial Highway just because of one area you can’t visit – there’s a lot more to it than that. (The 98-Mile Extraterrestrial Highway) *** Hikers sometimes get lost in the woods, as do children of course. But those on bikes almost never disappear; but there is one tragic case of a fat tire rider who couldn’t be found. (The Vanished Mountain Biker) *** Chlorosis was a frequently diagnosed disease during the 19th century that gave the skin of the afflicted a greenish tinge. As a cure, doctors told young women to get married and reproduce. As you can probably surmise, the cure was not in the least bit effective. (The Girls Who Turned Green) *** In 1910 two witnesses see a pair of lights that transform into radiant beings with “human form.” You might dismiss the report as misidentification of ball lightning or some other natural explanation – but in 1952 those radiant humanoid beings of light were seen again! (Close Encounters of the Fairy Kind)TRANSCRIPT FOR THIS EPISODE…Find a full or partial transcript at the bottom of this blog post: https://weirddarkness.com/archives/7017MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE…BOOK: “The Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries” by W.Y.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: It’s a stretch of road that only opened in 1988 to connect two existing roads, but it is known for being one of the deadliest roads in all of Britain… and one of the most haunted places in the world. The official designation is the A616… but most people know it as the Stocksbridge Bypass. (The Deadly Stocksbridge Bypass) *** 
Experiencing something strange is one thing. Experiencing two strange things in two different places might be called a coincidence. But when you experience three strange things in three different places, as Chet Guthrie did – you have to wonder if maybe the weirdness if following you around. (Three Events In Three Places of Really Weird Happenings) *** The Georgian Britains were obsessed with clean air, which was not surprising… because there was practically no clean air to obsess about. Even less-so in and around the cemeteries. (The Stench of Georgian Graveyards) *** A woman typically carries a baby for nine months before pregnancy. Sometimes a bit longer, sometimes a bit shorter, but that’s the average. Technology has made it possible for the baby to be born much sooner if complications were to arise, and still survive to be a healthy child. But we might have a new record on shortest pregnancy. One woman in Indonesia is claiming she gave birth after being pregnant for only one hour. (The One Hour Pregnancy) *** Heavy fog is commonplace in London, and in 1952 one particular fog rolled in for a full five days, hovering over the city. But when it finally dissipated, over 12,000 Londoners lay dead. (The Deadly Fog of 1952) *** A borrowed gun, romantically linked cousins, and a rigged jury – all the makings of a great murder trial in 1887 New Jersey. (A Mount Holly Tragedy) *** Here’s an idea on how to fight the black plague… throat lozenges… made from toad vomit! Hey, it was good enough for Isaac Newton! It was his own recipe!

But they are portrayed as evil in some other cultures – even claimed to be in league with the devil himself. And what do they have to do with Cain and Abel? We’ll look at the history of elves. (A History of Elves) *** There was a struggle, one of the men fell through a window to the street below, breaking his neck. A case that practically solved itself according to police. That is… until they began questioning those involved. Then it began to get very murky, and a bit bizarre. (The Strange Death of Thomas Farrant) *** Do you believe in vampires? If you are thinking of the undead, immortal, blood-sucking creatures of the night who speak with a Hungarian accent, then probably not. Or if you are thinking of the kind of vampires with pale skin and mussed hair that sparkle, then definitely not. But that doesn’t mean that vampires don’t exist. They in fact do roam the earth in human form, and I’ll tell you about them. (Are Vampires Real?) *** It’s the story of two Georges, one with his father’s name and one with not quite his father’s name, one legitimate, one illegitimate – with the latter being very good with elephants. I’ll tell you the odd life story of George Nyleve. (The Strange Story of George Nyleve) *** “Be quiet and give me the money in the cash drawer… This gun talks.” And with those words began a string of bank robberies conducted not by a gang of outlaws, or even a couple of bad men… but by one little old lady.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Want to live on the cheap in Tokyo, Japan? It’s easy to do – if you don’t mind living with a ghost or two. (Tokyo Ghosts) *** Cryptozoologists are abuzz right now about recent sightings of a creature seen in the lakes of Connemara in Ireland. The creature is rumored to be up to 30 feet long, with a mane of hair running along its back. Is it a yet undiscovered species of fish? A giant eel? A cousin to the Loch Ness monster in Scotland – or even perhaps a living dinosaur? No one has yet been able to answer the question – but this August, monster hunters from around the globe are coming together in Ireland to try and find answers. (The Giant Eels of Connemara) *** High school teacher Pamela Smart fell in love. Unfortunately, she fell in love with a 15-year-old student… and that is only the beginning of this horrible story. (High School Homicide) *** Weirdo family member, Josh Marinkovic, tells an eerie true experience that would shake anyone to the core.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: The scientist Isaac Newton is best known for his being the first to create the theory of gravity. But now we’ve learned it is very possible that would never have happened had this scientist not had a bit of sorcerer in him as well. (Ghosts, Gravity, and Isaac Newton) *** 
On Easter Sunday, 1475, in the city of Trent, a 2-year-old boy named Simon was found dead. This one act triggered a wave of anti-Semitism that wiped out a community of Jewish males and threatened the power of a pope. All from the death of one child. (History’s Most Dangerous Toddler) *** "I am innocent, that mark of mine will NEVER be wiped out. It will remain forever to shame the county for hanging an innocent man…. " Alexander Campbell said these words on June 21, 1877 shortly before his hanging. And true to his word, the handprint he left behind refuses to fade away – no matter how hard people try to remove it. (The Reappearing Handprint) *** A century ago, in July 1920, The Illustrated Police News, ran a single story on its front page, complete with a drawing of a man lying on top of a woman, both surrounded in blood. But even more disturbing – a young boy, very much alive, and apparently watching the whole thing. (The Little Boy Who Watched His Parents Die) *** It took a while before the first woman to be hanged would take place in the USA – but in 1778 it finally happened. And her name was Bathsheba Spooner.

Ron Hubbard, was so fascinated by the occult, he believed he was the actual devil himself… and was even upset when his own son turned out to not be the antichrist. (The Devil L. Ron Hubbard) *** Scientology is already scary and mysterious – which may not be surprising once you learn how much black magic had to do with its creation. (Scientology and the Occult) *** A house in the Altamaha River Swamp in Georgia becomes darker and more dangerous than the swamp itself. (A Terrifying Haunting in Georgia) *** Was a well known UFOlogist murdered shortly before a scheduled speech he was about to give? (The Bleached Computer of a UFO Researcher) *** Some believe we all have a guardian angel watching over us. One infamous yet respected witch hunter many years ago wrote that we all – each one of us – have a personal demon. And many people believed him. (The Demon Witch Hunter) *** For some time now, Area 51 has been seen as ground zero for conspiracies and government coverups. However, a plot of land in Utah has started to attract much of the same kind of attention. Welcome to Dugway – also known as Area 52.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Jodi Arias murdered her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. She’s now in prison – and says she loves it there. (The Murderess Who Loves Life in Prison) *** Bioluminescence is a fascinating trait, giving certain animals the ability to create their own light – literally glowing in the dark. The phenomenon has also been seen in humans, but only with special optics – it’s not visible to the naked eye. Except, that is, for a handful of very rare and unexplainable cases – one in which a woman’s breasts would glow. (The Strange Case of the Woman With Glowing Breasts) *** Vampires are everywhere – television, film, graphic novels, video games, books, and more cosplay than you can sink your teeth into. While our interest in blood-sucking creatures of the night is ubiquitous, it is by no means new. Before vampires sparkled in the sun, spoke in a Hungarian accent, or even crossed the mind of Bram Stoker, they’ve been terrorizing young and old alike… and have been doing so for almost a thousand years. But while we see the fanged fiends as entertainment, those before us saw them as a very real and evil danger. (Medieval Vampires) *** They seem to fall directly from the above – stones, falling upon unsuspecting people – sometimes by the dozens – and sometimes not from the sky, but from their own home’s ceiling. Who or what is throwing stones – and how?

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: A family moves into a home and almost immediately begins to experience escalating supernatural activity – which then introduces a sinister, dark menacing entity. (The Black Monk) *** Urban legends are typically dark, strange stories which for the most part are only that – legend. Harmless tales meant to frighten the listener with no more repercussions than some goose bumps and perhaps a restless night of trying to sleep. But some legends are based on truth – and those are the ones that truly make our skin crawl and our faces turn white. (Urban Legends Which Are Actually True) *** Why would a U.S. state vote to have an official state demon? It really happened – and stories about the Jersey Devil continue to this day. We’ll look at the history and horrors of this bizarre cryptid and see if it’s more than urban legend. (Legend of the Jersey Devil) *** Delano, California is a small, uninteresting town that many may think twice before visiting. East of this town is an equally dreary road known as Browning Road. If you’re a paranormal enthusiast, you know that this is one road you shouldn’t dare travel alone. (Hitchhiking Ghost of Delano) *** A woman shares her horrifying true story of an evil entity she encountered on Browning Road in Delano, California. (Evil Walks Browning Road) *** In the summer of 2014 a series of UFOs were being reported by Navy pilots – the most elite of our airborne military. Not only were the sightings becoming more frequent – they would last up to 12-hours at a time. (Navy Pilots Report UFOs)

Howard. “The Haunter of the Ring” was first published in the pulp magazine Weird Tales in the June 1934 issue. Howard earned $60 for this publication… equal to just over $1,100 today. This story was set in the modern age of 1934. The short story belonged to the universe of the Cthulhu Mythos, so while it may not have been written by H.P. Lovecraft, it was certainly inspired by him. Bizarrely, at the same time, it is also a part of the Conan the Barbarian universe as it includes a relic from the Hyborian Age of the Conan the Barbarian stories, the ring of Thoth-Amon.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Murderous phantoms and homicidal ghosts are only found in television and movies, right? It’s rare – but they do decide to to make their presence known in the real world on occasion. (Homicidal Poltergeists) *** 
A dead chicken was found beside the granary, next to a large print on the ground of an animal no one could identify. That was almost a year ago when sightings of a strange creature began on the Restayno family’s property. (The Argentina Entity) *** You’ve heard her story on national news – the hiker, lost in the wilderness of Hawaii for seventeen days. Fortunately she was found alive and relatively unharmed. But the mainstream news outlets are leaving out one very eerie part of Amanda Eller’s story. (Ghostly Voice Causes Hiker To Get Lost) *** Heaven and Hell… are these just ideas in a book, or are they real places? And is it true, as some believe, that Hell is below us, in the center of the Earth? (Caught Between Heaven And Hell) *** A paranormal investigator stumbles upon an abandoned property he has never seen before – and even this seasoned ghost hunter was scared out of his wits by what happened there.

Try as I might, I simply cannot listen to your narration and NOT think of DAN ACKROYD ! Makes me think comedy. Not horror.
