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.
On December 19, 1996, Joe Roy Metheny, was charged with the murders of three women in three separate incidents. He confessed to killing a male victim, as well, and in time he admitted to killing at least 10 people, however it was what he did with the bodies that was the most nauseating aspect of his crimes.
