Wendy Root, photojournalist, and Chris Stevens, noted debunker and skeptic, looked into a case in Bakersfield, California of a man named John Adams Miller who believed the Devil was controlling him through the television. They convinced Bakersfield PD to take the television as evidence. An evidence tech opened the casing of the set to discover some markings matching a series of notes left by a man named Cornelius Boyle.
Weeks later, a case emerged in New Orleans of a mortician’s assistant blasting away at corpses in the morgue where he worked. Chris and Wendy managed to track down a material witness as well as uncovering an unexpected past for one of the bullet riddled corpses.
A sad side note: a Bakersfield Police Department evidence tech was caught stockpiling dead cats in his evidence lockers. He was fired.
Although the duo were still struggling with their story in New Orleans, a new case called them away to Great Falls, Montana. A report of cattle mutilation and a sighting… of a werewolf. Locals believed it to be a teenage boy named One Hawk, whose family, proud Native Americans, claimed to be able to take on the spirit of the wolf. Their beliefs may have been a cause of their own tragedy, as the community took on a mob mentality and beat One Hawk to death, injuring seriously several other members of his family.
As an added tragedy, Chris and Wendy uncovered the true source of the cattle mutilations: a family remaining at large.
