In 1944, police made a gruesome discovery inside a Paris townhouse, a mass collection of dismembered body parts being burned in a furnace. This would lead them to a massive manhunt for a vicious serial killer named Marcel Petiot, who operated freely during the World War II Nazi occupation.

In February, 1994, a 34-year-old cancer patient named Gloria Ramirez was rushed into the Riverside General emergency room having difficulty breathing. Soon after, more than a dozen nurses, doctors and patients began passing out from toxic fumes that allegedly came from the woman’s body. But what really caused this bizarre incident? Can science explain it? Or was it all part of a deeper conspiracy that people tried desperately to cover up?

Did the CIA really murder one of its own scientists? And how does the man’s death tie into a bizarre outbreak of mass hallucinations in a tiny French village.

Ghosts and the law don’t seem like two things that go together. But throughout history there have been several instances where the two intersect.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, spiritualism was all the rage across America. People across the country regularly visited so-called psychic mediums to communicate with ghosts. But in 1874, an ardent skeptic of the paranormal heard about a pair of brothers from Vermont, who claimed to be able to conjure the spirits of the dead on their rural farm. What happened next would change that skeptic’s life forever.

Hypnotism is a controversial subject that has been around in one form or another since the time of the ancient Egyptians. Under hypnosis, a person becomes susceptible to suggestion. But just how far can you compel a person under hypnosis to go? For centuries, hypnosis has been tied to a number of murders and suspicious deaths. In this episode, we’ll discuss some of these incidents, including one that may involve one of the most famous assassinations in American history.

But in real life, cabins in the woods have been the locations of some very real murders. Here are two such stories, including the tale of a group of fur trappers who met their bitter end one winter, and the tale of a single mother of five, who left a terrible situation, only to end up in a nightmare beyond imagination.

The city of Florence, Italy is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. It’s also the birthplace of a terrifying serial killer who helped inspire the fictional serial killer Hannibal Lecter. The story of the Monster of Florence is a terrifying and twisting tale that went on for more than two decades, destroying countless lives and unearthing dark secrets that many people would rather keep buried.

Throughout history, many cultures around the world have claimed to have had people who could contact the spirits. In the late 19th century, during the height of Spiritualism, a Baltimore novelty and toy company began selling a device they claimed could allow the user to gain knowledge from spirits beyond the grave. The history of the Ouija board is nearly as mysterious as the way it’s supposed to work. Some people appear to have even been driven to commit murder by the board.

During World War II, the German Luftwaffe began a massive bombing campaign over London and the surrounding British countryside known as The Blitz. By night, London began turning off all the lights in order to make it more difficult for German bombers to locate targets. But this also allowed a brutal serial killer to begin stalking London’s streets under cover of darkness.

But there have been a few cases of mysterious disappearances that defy logic and make you wonder if the truth might come from beyond the stars.

You can often judge a society by how it treats it’s least fortunate members. In particular, the disabled and the mentally ill. Throughout history, people with mental illness have been shuttered away in massive insane asylums, where the treatment they received was often more horrible and insane than the symptoms the patients were being treated for. Hear the history of London’s infamous Bedlam Hospital, the history of America’s Danvers State Hospital and more stories of the monstrous ways the mentally ill have been treated through history.

During the early 20th century, America was caught up in a growing spiritualist movement that swept the nation. One hotspot for seances and new religious movements during the 1920s was Detroit. There, a self-styled “Divine Prophet” named Benny Evangelista met a brutal end. He and his entire family were murdered by an unknown assailant wielding an axe.  Here the true story of this bizarre unsolved murder, as well as the story of a man so determined to prove there was an afterlife, that he set in motion a plan to go there in person.

During the 1940s and early 1950s, a string of strange disappearances occurred around Glastenbury Mountain in Vermont. Theories range from alien abduction, to Bigfoot, to dimensional gateways, to a serial killer on the loose. The strange events that occurred throughout the region led to a writer dubbing it The Bennington Triangle.

One of the great myths about serial killers perpetuated by books and the movies is that they’re all criminal geniuses like Hannibal Lecter. In truth, the criminal mastermind is extremely rare. Back in the late 19th century there lived a serial murderer named Edward Rulloff, who was considered so brilliant by academics of the era that his brain was studied and put on display for many decades after. Rolloff is almost forgotten to history today, but back in the day he was considered one of the greatest criminal masterminds of his era.

Logic tells us curses aren’t real. Yet history is full of instances that make you scratch your head and wonder. Hear some of the strange true stories, including the legend of King Tut’s curse, the serial killer who cast a hex on the courtroom that convicted him and the curse of an ancient warlord that some people think may have killed millions of people.

We’ve all heard the story about how John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theater. But did you ever hear the story about the men who drove a mummy around the U.S. claiming it was Booth? Or the one about the gang of criminals who tried to steal Lincoln’s corpse? Or how about the Army major who was in Lincoln’s box that night who later went insane and tried to murder his entire family? These are strange but true stories your history teacher forgot to tell you.

Long before the Zodiac Killer terrorized southern California, there was another similar string of murders in which a bizarre killer stalked and murdered people at local lover’s lanes then sent taunting, coded messages to the police and newspapers. Although the 3X killer is almost forgotten today, during the 1930s, the unknown man terrorized the entire city of New York, and launched one of the largest criminal manhunts in the city’s history.

On April 7, 1994, FedEx Flight 705 took off on a routine flight from Memphis to San Jose. What happened next was anything but routine though. A rogue FedEx employee attempted to seize control of the aircraft, and this flight turned into one of the most harrowing and violent skyjackings in history. This is the amazing true story.

It’s bizarre enough when a single serial killer is terrorizing the community. But an entire family of serial killers is almost unheard of. In 1843, in rural Kansas a family of serial killers known as The Bloody Benders cut a deadly swath across the prairie.

They say that revenge is a dish best served cold. History has many tales of people who took the act of revenge to a whole new level. In this episode hear the stories of The 47 Ronin of Japan, and of Olga of Kiev, the Russian princess turned Catholic Saint whose bloodthirsty act of vengeance wiped out an entire city.

On the night of March 19, 1919, all the dance halls and bars and nearly every home in the city of New Orleans was blasting jazz all through the night.
