Paranormal: Wendigo

The Wendigo is known by several names — Windigo, Witigo, Witiko, and Wee-Tee-Go — but each roughly translates to “the evil spirit that devours mankind.” “The Wendigo was gaunt to the point of emaciation, its desiccated skin pulled tightly over its bones. With its bones pushing out against its skin, its complexion the ash-gray of death, and its eyes pushed back deep into their sockets, the Wendigo looked like a gaunt skeleton recently disinterred from the grave. What lips it had were tattered and bloody ... Unclean and suffering from suppuration of the flesh, the Wendigo gave off a strange and eerie odor of decay and decomposition, of death and corruption” - Basil H. Johnston Stay safe out there.  With love, Saaniya and Maddie x Sources:

True Crime: Burke and Hare

Around 200 years ago, the Judgement of Death Act 1823 saw the number of crimes punishable by death in Britain drop dramatically. Good news in theory, but since medical and anatomical schools were only legally allowed to dissect the bodies, or cadavers, of those who had been condemned to death, this led to an extreme shortage of dead bodies available. Financial compensation offered by medical schools meant that some unscrupulous types soon found a way around this shortage of bodies, leading to a rash of grave-robbing by those known as resurrectionists. This led to why Burke and Hare may have murdered the 16 people in the West Port murders in 1827… Stay safe out there. With love, Saaniya and Maddie x Sources:

Paranormal: Dumbarton's Dog Suicide Bridge

This story starts with James White, who bought a property called the Overtoun Farm in 1859. He built the Overtoun House three years later in 1862. When White died in 1884, his son, John Campbell White, inherited the house and its estate and started planning to extend the driveway of the house across a deep ravine in order to provide easier access. The bridge was completed in June of 1895. During the 1950s, locals started referring to the bridge as the "Bridge of Death" or the "Dog Suicide Bridge", as it was reported that dogs were leaping from the bridge into the ravine below.

Paranormal: The Monster of Pocomoonshine Lake

Many people say that Pocomoonshine lake is a beautiful lake in Princeton, a northeastern town in Maine. But it became really notorious in the 1800s when witnesses claimed that a large creature lived in the lake. A giant snake, 30-60 feet long and 4 feet wide. And though a snake that large seems quite unbelievable, the story actually stems from Native American Folklore, specifically in a battle between giant snakes. So, could there really be a giant snake in Maine? Or maybe there's another explanation? But either way, join us for this short and sweet paranormal story! Stay safe out there.

Paranormal: The Logan Inn

The Logan Inn, located in New Hope Pennsylvania, and it is very famously known to be haunted by no fewer than 8 ghosts at a time. The most famous of them all is actually the haunting of room 6, which is actually likely to be a few different ghosts. But despite how haunted the Inn is, all of these ghosts seem to be quite friendly, and is probably a good place for what we’d call a “beginner” haunting experience. This haunted Inn is definitely on our list of places we’d like to visit some day. And not just the Inn though, the town also has a few other resident ghosts who like to make themselves known sometimes… Stay safe out there. With love, Saaniya and Maddie x Sources:

Paranormal: The Poltergeist of Francisco Giner, 43

From the German words “polter” ("to make sound" and "to rumble") and Geist ("ghost" and "spirit"), a poltergeist is fundamentally a “noisy” or “rumble” ghost. And that is exactly what appeared to happen on the night of February 10, 1935 in the basement of building number 43 on Francisco Giner de Gràcia street. This is when the Montroig and Mendoza family heard a faint banging sound throughout the walls, which was slowly getting louder and louder. What followed was a series of events which were witnessed by the family, neighbors, and even the media. But what really happened that night? We may never really know… Stay safe out there.

True Crime: The Disappearance of Marvin Alvin Clark

Marvin Alvin Clark was born in (maybe) 1852. After a mysterious day of travel, he went missing on October 30th, 1926. Since then, it was believed that his body was found by loggers in 1986, but when it was determined that the remains were not his, two mysteries remain: who was found in 1986, and what happened to Marvin Alvin Clark? Marvin Clark has been missing for just about 95 years now, so he would be over 160 years old today. Which means that we aren’t expecting to find him alive, but it would be nice to have some closure for the family. If you have any information about his disappearance though, the contact I found is for the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office at 503.988.4300 Stay safe out there.

Paranormal: The Woodstock Vampires

New England is famous for horror stories and ghosts and hauntings - the most famous being the Salem Witch Trials of the late 1600s. Just about 200 years since that Satanic panic that caused the witch trials, there was another type of paranormal panic, a supernatural delusion if you will, fueled by an outbreak of tuberculosis, known at the time as consumption. When one member of a family would contract TB, it was likely that others would as well in due time. So people started thinking that the deceased were returning to earth and draining the life from their loved ones. And this caused what they called the “Vampiric Panic.” And thus began years of vampires and burning hearts… Stay safe out there. With love, Saaniya and Maddie x Sources:
