This week we take a look at three different scary stories for Halloween.

Beheading of Leroy Carter
The body of Leroy Carter was found in a San Francisco park inside of his sleeping bag. His head however was not. Signs pointed to it being an occult killing but police never figured it out.
The whole story

Murder by witchcraft
In 1991 Christoper Case told his friends that he’d met a witch, and that she said she’d put a curse on him, a claim that he didn’t take too seriously. But then within a few weeks he was dead.
Scared to death?

La Pascualita
The corpse bride of Mexico was installed in toe window of the Pascuala wedding shop in Chihuahua Mexico on March 25, 1930, where it remains to this day. However, due to the stunningly human features of the mannequin, rumors continue to circulate that the corpse bride is, in fact, a corpse.

Live from CrimeCon: Clarence Roberts tragically died in a fire on November 18th, 1970. 10 years later he tragically died in a second fire. How could he have died in both fires? If he died in the first fire then who died in the second fire? Team Sideways digs into the case in a live recording held at CrimeCon in Indianapolis, Indiana this June.

Having run out of mysteries, the team takes on the task they’ve always discussed: a cooking show! They start with a Choopie favorite, Goat Blood Soup! (PS, happy April fools!)


Pont St Esprit

In an incident suspiciously similar to the Ken McElroy episode–except that there was no bullying redneck, no pickup truck and no gunfire–hundreds of residents of Pont St. Esprit in France found themselves hallucinating wildly. 7 died and many were institutionalized, and speculation is that it could have been ergot poisoning… or a CIA plot.
