“APOLLO 20 AND CRASHED ALIENS ON THE MOON” and More Disturbing But True Stories! #WeirdDarkness

IN THIS EPISODE: Did a secret Apollo mission to the dark side of the Moon discover an ancient alien life-form? (Apollo 20: Journey Into Darkness) *** 
It's been 12 years since Jennifer Kesse disappeared from her Florida home without a trace. What happened to her? We’ll look inside this case that is still a mystery. (Inside The Unsolved Disappearance of Jennifer Keese) *** In 1894, a massive fire broke out in the forests of Minnesota, killing more than 400 people. Do their ghosts remain behind with the ashes? (Under a Flaming Sky) *** A teenager tells how ghosts are just part of day-to-day living for her family. (Ghosts – A Part of Life) *** One of the most well-known explorers, Christopher Columbus, had a signature that was so perplexing that most scholars believe it is a secret code of some kind – and so far, an unbreakable code at that. (The Secret Code Signature of Christopher Columbus) *** Some victims died because they happened to leave their doors unlocked. Others had been methodically stalked. How do serial killers choose their victims? We’ll look at the methods of nine of the most notorious serial killers in history. (How Do Serial Killers Select Their Victims?) *** When Jeffrey Dampier won the lottery, he thought he finally had it all. Little did he know that someone was about to take everything from him. (No Good Deed Goes Unpunished) *** They found Annie stretched out on the floor with a pistol lying by her hand. There was no sign of a struggle and nothing had been taken; they could only conclude that Annie had taken her own life. But is that really what happened? (The Annie Dorman Mystery) *** When you think of seeing a ghost, you almost automatically envision an ethereal being, in flowing white – like that of a woman in a wedding dress. And that might make sense, seeing as there are a lot of dead brides-to-be floating around America. (Til Death: Ghost Brides of the United States) *** You’ve seen them on the outside of large gothic buildings and massive churches. Their stone faces and menacing presence can be unsettling to some. But what are the purpose of gargoyles? (In The Protection of Gargoyles) *** Were Betty and Barney Hill actually visited and even abducted by aliens in 1961, or was it an outlandish story just to get attention? (The Betty and Barney Hill Abduction) *** The village of Trasmoz in Spain is said to be cursed by witches. Could there be a truth in the lore? (The Cursed Village of Witches)
