Episode 66 Haunted Hikes and Tales

October 1, 2010


In this episode I talk about haunted hikes, some unique places where you’ll most likely encounter a ghost and I tell a true story of my unique encounter with the paranormal and a possible homicidal maniac.

Villisca is a small town in Iowa and the scene of one of America’s most grizzly murders.  I relay facts about the case and feature some audio clips about the murder weapon.

Also featured is a story about an insane asyllum  in Upstate New York where over 400 abandoned suitcases were found, belonging to former patients that were kept at the institution before it closed in 1995.
