Case 35 - Part 2 - The Demonic Possession of Maurice Theriault

> September 20th, 2017 ---
00:0000:00

As a child Maurice "Frenchy" Theriault lived a hard New England life, suffering long hours working on his family farm and dealing with his father’s abusive attitude, becoming more and more violent towards his son as he became older. Frenchy began to ask for help, calling upon anyone who would help him, even unknowingly asking Satan to help him. It was also during this time that he witnessed something horrific in the farm’s barn that is never explained fully but which is only hinted at as involving sex of some kind. Frenchy was forced to watch and participate in acts. Frenchy began to notice differences in himself. He had increased strength, knowledge of things he had never learned. He eventually left and floated around New England for years. In the spring of 1985 the town noticed something unusual going on with Frenchy. Blood would randomly appear in the house and on Frenchy. His unusual strength continued. The most disturbing activity was Frenchy’s bi-location. It was decided that this was a case of possession, and Bishop Robert McKenna was called in and agreed to perform an exorcism. The exorcism was successful...... but only for awhile.....

Case 34 - The Curse of “Little Bastard”

> August 29th, 2017 ---
00:0000:00

In the nine days that James Dean owned "Little Bastard", it’s reported that others warned him of uneasy feelings they had about the car. Among them were actor Nick Adams; actress and singer Eartha Kitt; Dean’s uncle Charlie Nolan; and actress and sometime girlfriend Ursula Andres, who was with Dean when he bought the car. If these warnings were the only eerie factor, the story would be unnerving enough. But Dean’s death wasn’t the last of the strange occurrences surrounding the car.

Case 30 - The Amber Hagerman Story

> June 19th, 2017 ---

On January 13, 1996, nine-year-old Amber Rene Hagerman (November 25, 1986 – January 17, 1996) was abducted while riding her bike in Arlington, Texas. A neighbor who witnessed the abduction called the police, and Amber's brother Ricky went home to tell his mother and grandparents what happened. It's often believed that Hagerman's murderer kept her alive for at least two days. Richard Hagerman and Amber's mother, Donna Whitson (now Donna Norris), called the news media and the FBI. The Whitsons and their neighbors began searching for Amber. Four days after the abduction, near midnight, her body was found in a creek behind an apartment complex – with cut wounds to her neck. The site of the discovery was less than five miles from where she went missing. There are no suspects to her abduction and homicide.

The 1981 drowning of Natalie Wood, while Splendour, the yacht belonging to her and her husband, Robert Wagner, was anchored off Catalina Island, remains one of Hollywood’s darkest mysteries.

How had she ended up in the Pacific in the middle of the night? Drawing on the police report—which includes interviews with Wagner, Christopher Walken (Wood’s then co-star), and others—as well as details from the yacht’s captain, let's see if we can't find out what happened.
