JOSEPH BELL: THE REAL LIFE SHERLOCK HOLMES” and More True and Strange Stories! #WeirdDarkness

IN THIS EPISODE: According to some ancient beliefs people born under certain hours, known as chime hours, are gifted with special abilities, like seeing beyond the visible realm. (Born In The Chime Hours) *** Weighing just 75 pounds, he was billed as both the Ossified Man and the Living Skeleton. We’ll look at the tragic real-life story of Jonathan R. Bass and others who have suffered the same malady known as ossification. (History of the Ossified) *** It doesn’t take long before a family discovers the house they just moved into might have another entity already living there. (Jensen Street) *** She wanted to be the next Marilyn Monroe – but instead, Dorothy Stratten got pulled into a deadly world of fame, porn, and violence, and the men who kept on exploiting her even after she was dead. We’ll look at the tragic life and death of Dorothy Stratten. (Death of a Centerfold) *** Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes first appeared in print in “A Study in Scarlet”, in 1887. But in reality, Holmes had already been alive for decades. Literally alive – and was, in fact, a man named Joseph Bell. (Joseph Bell, The Real Life Sherlock Holmes)
