We made it to number five, and it's a blast! This week, Josiah blows us away with his description of the wendigo (or windigo, if you prefer), a creature of Algonquin origins that carries the distinction of having the taste for human flesh! Even the scientifically acknowledged Wendigo Psychosis drives regular folk into flesh-craving lunatic cannibals!
Steve draws the equipment card for the second week in a row, and selects a tool nearly as far as he can from last week's high-tech instrument. He discusses divining rods, their history, types, and some of the beliefs of how they work. From water witching to spirit communication, their uses are as varied as their construction. Just be sure to keep a tight grip on your rod when entering a spooky place!
Finally, Mike reviews the legendary Villisca Ax(e) Murder House! The grisly and tragic murders of 1912 are still unsolved, and the circumstances around the circumstances around the event are nearly as wild as the crime itself! A botched investigation, false accusations and confessions, as well as a currently active haunting add to the mystique of this location! Check out the official site for the virtual tour that provides a great feel for the intimacy of the place. Additionally, listen to the chilling and disturbing EVP captured by the American Paranormal Research Association. The home is open for day tours, as well as overnight investigations.
