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?

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 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. But this wasn’t any ordinary night of reverie in the Big Easy, for this city-wide concert was meant for an audience of one, an axe-wielding maniac who purported to be a creature straight out of hell.
