Case 37 - The Death of a Ghost - King of the Delta Blues : Robert Johnson

Monday, October 2nd, 2017
00:0000:00

According to legend, as a young man living on a plantation in rural Mississippi, Robert Johnson had a tremendous desire to become a great blues musician. He was instructed to take his guitar to a crossroad near Dockery Plantation at midnight. There he was met by a large black man (the devil) who took the guitar and tuned it. The devil played a few songs and then returned the guitar to Johnson, giving him mastery of the instrument. This was a deal with the devil mirroring the legend of Faust. In exchange for his soul, Johnson was able to create the blues for which he became famous. Johnson died on August 16, 1938, at the age of 27, near Greenwood, Mississippi, of unknown causes. Several differing accounts have described the events preceding his death. According to one theory, Johnson was poisoned by the jealous husband of a woman with whom he had flirted. Johnson had been flirting with a married woman at a dance, who gave him a bottle of whiskey poisoned by her husband. But....when you start looking into this case, it doesn't add up. Did Robert Johnson really make a deal with the devil? How did he really die? Where is he buried? These are just some of the questions that surround the myth and the legend of Robert Johnson.

The Bennett family murders is a case that goes back more than three decades. It begins with a woman killed with a hammer in Lakewood and, a week later, a family killed the same way in Aurora. The killer was never brought to justice. But new technology is getting detectives closer and closer to solving the brutal mystery. The Bennett family had just moved into their Aurora home around Thanksgiving. It was a quiet cul-de-sac and most of the homes were still empty. Their daughter Melissa about to celebrate her eighth birthday, but never would. On the night of Jan. 16, 1984 a man entered the Bennett’s home. The man fatally stabbed and bludgeoned 27-year-old Bruce Bennett and sexually assaulted and bludgeoned his wife Debra, 26. He then sexually assaulted and fatally beat 7-year-old Melissa Bennett and shattered the face of 3-year-old Vanessa Bennett. She survived.

00:0000:00

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. The star of Splendor in the Grass and Rebel Without a Cause, whose tempestuous search for love had led her finally to remarry Wagner, was terrified of deep water. 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.

Case 27 - The Death of Gareth Williams

Friday, May 12th, 2017
00:0000:00

Police visited Williams's home during the afternoon of Monday 23 August 2010, as a "welfare check" after colleagues noted he had been out of contact for several days. His decomposing naked remains were found in a red The North Face bag, padlocked from the outside, in the bath of the main bedroom's en-suite bathroom. The police had gained entry into his top floor flat in Alderney Street, Pimlico at around 16:40. His family believe that crucial DNA was interfered with and that fingerprints left at the scene were wiped off as part of a cover-up. No fingerprints, palm-prints, footprints or traces of Williams's DNA were found on the rim of the bath, the bag zip or the bag padlock. A key to the padlock was inside the bag, underneath his body.

When a celebrity dies under mysterious circumstances, or their followers believe there is more to the story than what is being told, conspiracy is thrown around.  Did they really die, did they fake their deaths, were they murdered, etc.?   One of those celebrities who's death has been shrouded in darkness for decades is that of, The Doors frontman, Jim Morrison.

On February 10th, 2009 a 5 year old girl disappeared without a trace from her Satsuma Florida home. A case that seemed like a random abduction at first, later turned into a possible murder at the hands of her father's live-in girlfriend and her relatives. With drugs playing an everyday role in the parents lives and stories about what happened that night constantly changing, it's hard to say if we will ever get the real story of what happened to Haleigh Cummings.

With failing health and his life in ruins could he have jumped? Was it a prank gone horribly wrong? I guess we'll have to look at the facts and find out.
