Listen to ““THE GHOST OF SUPERMAN” and More Terrifying True Stories! #WeirdDarkness #Darkives” on Spreaker.

IN THIS EPISODE: Superman died at 1:59 am on June 16, 1959. Not the comic book character, of course, but the man who personified the “real” Superman for an entire generation of television fans. George Reeves, it was discovered, was not faster than a speeding bullet after all. Even though the initial coroner’s report listed Reeves’ death as an “indicated suicide,” after nearly five decades there are many who do not believe that he killed himself. The death of George Reeves remains one of Hollywood’s most compelling unsolved mysteries, combining rumors of murder, conspiracy, cover-ups – and a lingering ghost. (Not Faster Than a Speeding Bullet) *** Few things are more unsettling than an unsolved missing persons case. What happened to Virginia Carpenter? She’s been missing for 69 years and investigators are still as stumped as they were in 1948.  (The Virginia Carpenter Disappearance) *** An elderly woman, an old man, and a young ten-year-old girl reside in the same house. I say reside – because they were not alive. (The House With The Purple Porch) *** Did a man really see an army of dead Medieval soldiers – or was he witnessing something from a parallel world? (Strange Encounter With a Dead Medieval Army)
