How do you know things are serious? 1. Robert Stack gets involved. 2. Robert Stack gets involved... 'nuff said. How did a simple affair send one man to jail, kill another, and terrorize an entire hamlet...in a mystery that remains unsolved to this day? Ohio is the answer! We ask the rest of the questions this week as we examine the case of the Circleville Letters. Plus, Brent talks about his days as a vigilante (that's a kind interpretation), Conspiracy Bot acknowledges that most of his fans are in jail (also a kind interpretation), and C-Bot wants a pen pal (nothing clever to add here...just don't do it). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t write any anonymous, threatening, or vilifying letters, but we can't say the same for our robot(s) – Hysteria 51.
