      i know this is unrelated to it, but it reminds me of the death of Meriwether Lewis's death? wether it was suicide or murder? i had to write and essay on it in class before school ended and it really peaked my interest for a history assignment. personally i believe it was murder because there's no way he could've shot him self twice in the head with gun that made tennis ball wholes in things up close.

    You guys should cover the suicide/murder of Marsha B Johnson. The case itself is interesting with a few possibilities to go over and the individual herself is someone well worth looking into.

    I think that these unsolved mysteries are far more scarier than supernatural series as there is no proof for supernatural entities but serial killers definitely exists.

    Intensity in general is often the fuel for creative inspiration. It can be very negative or it can be intense joy, gratitude or even intense serenity. I’m speaking from experience.

  • Elise

    You guys should do an unsolved episode on the DEATH OF MARILYN MONROE! There are a lot of crazy theories and a lot of research on the murder! There are theories about the mafia being involved! It would definitely be interesting to see you guys talk about it!

  • Eric Houle

    You guys should do the Chris Benoit case. A lot of mistakes were made in the investigation, too many people out there believe to this day he didn’t do it, and there are still too many unanswered questions.

    Some people speculate that Van had epilepsy because of some of the paintings he did and some other evidence that they found. It is believed that some of Van’s paintings were painted after his seizure attacks.

    I love how caring and supportive his brother was and to think that in the end Vincent finally paid back his brother by all of his paintings just shows how real their bond was . But it sucks to think that Vincent died believing he was a burden when in reality he paid his brother a million times over

    You guys should check out the devils tramping ground, it’s mysterious in the sense that nothing ever grows there and people stay the devil walks there at night. It would be really cool as the ghost hunt for a season.

    I actually did a school project over this, and it still breaks my heart. But one of the theories I believe is that Van Gogh's doctor's son did it.

    If you would like to see Vincent's story told in a gorgeous art style I suggest the film Loving Vincent on Netflix, it is truly moving.

    I wonder if he asked someone to do it for him and once they did they couldn't live with themselves so tried to get rid of all the evidence. It could have been someone like his brother seeing how miserable someone you love is could drive you to help them with something so awful.
