Reverend Richard Rossi
In June 1994, Reverend Richard Rossi and his wife Sherrie were traveling in tandem in separate vehicles. What happened next is up for debate, but Sherrie would end up on the side of the road severely beaten and fighting for her life. Richard would flee and when he eventually called the police, he would give bizarre stories about who had committed the assault against his wife. Initially Sherrie would accuse Richard of being the assailant, but eventually she recanted and claimed it was someone who looked like Richard who attacked her--possibly an evil spirit in human form. Would be found ultimately responsible for the attempted murder of Sherrie Rossi? Her own husband or the mysterious assailant?
