A couple is arrested transporting plastic-wrapped body parts in a baby carriage. Further investigation finds that they might be responsible for at least 20 other murders of mostly single mothers.
In 1959 a group of hikers were found horribly mutilated and killed in a part of Russia's Ural Mountains known as Dyatlov Pass. Until this day who murdered them remains a mystery, and now another person has disappeared from this place.
The wendigo is the darkest of spirits, described as having too-tight skin, towering antlers, and an inexhaustible appetite for human flesh.
Many think that the wendigo is just a character out of Native American mythology, but in 1879, a Cree by the name of Swift Runner did its bidding by killing and cannibalizing his entire family.

What would be the odds that could lose not one, but two of your children to murder? For a family in Kansas the odds were not high enough as two sisters both died at the hands of merciless killers almost twenty years apart.
The setting is 1890s Nevada. A lonely miner turned rancher was murdered by his friends. He was dismembered, burned and buried so no one would be the wiser of what truly happened to him. The restless spirit of this man would not lie quietly, and not only was the heinous crime discovered, but the first woman to be legally executed in Nevada faced justice due to the revenge of the miner's ghost.
Presently stories abound about haunted houses, castles, cars, collector items etc, but for me, the real question lies in how did this come about, and if there is really a way to truly release the agony, torment and terror of incidents that produced this haunting, whether intelligent or residual.
Some desperate measures taken, especially when the haunting takes place in a structure, is to burn it down, however I don't think that really does the trick, because I believe that the spirits of those who experienced moments so extreme that they are trapped there even after the death of their physical bodies, do not recognize the purifying effect hoped for by those of us still in the material plane.
