What is it truly like in hell? Of course the only way to find out is to die – and that’s a bit extreme if you are just simply curious about the subject. Especially if you find yourself on the wrong side of the faith issue and have to spend an eternity in the “bad place”. But there are some who have reached the edge of life, teetering on the precipice of death, and believe they have experienced the fires of hell, and they were somehow able to return to tell us of their experience.
They flew under the cover of darkness in bare-bones plywood biplanes. Their planes were too small to show up on radar. Radio locators were useless as the female-flying Soviet squadrons never used radios on their after-dark missions. Their bomb runs were so deadly accurate that the Nazi soldiers were terrified to the point of being afraid to light a cigarette for fear of giving away their position. They braved bullets and frostbite in the air… and skepticism and sexual harassment on the ground. From pilot, to mechanic, to officer, every one… female. They flew silently, with the only hint of their approach being the soft whooshing sound their cheaply constructed wooden planes made in the wind, a sound resembling that of a sweeping broom, thus the Germans gave them the nickname “Nachthexen”. The “Night Witches”.
As a listener of true crime podcasts, you likely are more than familiar with names like H.H. Holmes, Richard Ramirez, and Gary Ridgeway. But what happens when the serial killer hasn’t even reached adolescence?
Imagine waking up and all you see is pitch black darkness. You’re cold, and if you’re not mistaken, you’re also naked. You try to get up and immediately bump your head, when you spread your arms your horrible suspicion is confirmed… you are enclosed in some type of box. A refrigerated box. Then you realize it… you’re in a morgue. But wait… aren’t you’re alive? How can this be? Even now in the 21st century, tales like this do happen – and they are just as terrifying as you imagine.
Where are bodies dumped most often? What are some of the strangest places bodies have been found, and what odd situations ended up in death? We’ll look at some weird stories of dead bodies being found.
Throughout history there have been those mysterious, misunderstood individuals who have left bafflement, oddities, and enigmas in their wake. They seem to come from nowhere to puzzle and amaze, only to disappear into the depths of history, to be forever ciphers beyond our understanding. One such strange individual called New Orleans his home in the early 1900s, and by some accounts was more than merely an eccentric, but also an immortal vampire.
There is probably no cryptid out there that is as sighted, talked about, and as well-known as Bigfoot. It is the rock star of cryptids, the one that even people with no interest at all in cryptozoology have heard of, right up there with the Loch Ness Monster. Ask most people what they think these creatures are and you will more likely than not get the answer that they are some sort of massive undiscovered ape-like animal that lurks in remote areas of the world. Yet, what if Bigfoot is, at least in some cases, no animal at all, or at least not like any known by us? What if these creatures are something from not only beyond our understanding, but from beyond our very reality?
Greenwood Avenue featured luxury shops, restaurants, movie theaters, a library, pool halls and nightclubs… until late May and early June of 1921. It was almost exactly 99 years ago today that a brutal race riot took place in this suburb of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Which is tragically ironic, watching the news and seeing what is happening all over the USA today in early June of 2020. You could almost think that nothing has changed. We’ll look at what happened in Greenwood, Oklahoma 99 years ago.
