If you grew up in the last half century or so, the tradition of checking your Halloween candy after coming home from Trick or Treating was a commonplace event of your childhood.

There could be a razor blade stuck in your Taffy Apple or a loose wrapper on your peanut butter cup that may mean poison.

Like most things though, especially those connected to a holiday like Halloween, truth is often stranger (and sometimes scarier) then fiction.

The first question is: Has a child ever died from candy connected to the holiday of Halloween?

Yes.

That fact stated, the truth behind the fear of a murderer targeting children through poisoned holiday sweets is a bit more complex and interesting…

Amityville: An Insight to Ronald DeFeo in Prison

Being an infamous criminal in the prison system can lead to many different kinds of encounters.

For many men and women who had their names splashed across the nation  after their crimes were discovered this can lead to dangerous and life threatening situations, such as when Charles Manson was set on fire in a California institution in 1984.

However, sometimes these individuals are able to pretty much live their lives like any other prisoner to the outside observer, at least until the cases that made them famous are brought back out for the odd crime documentary or two.

Ronald DeFeo never quite did escape the lime light, not because of the tragic events of November 1974 when he killed not only both his parents but his four siblings as well, but because the house the murders were committed in on Ocean Ave in Amityville, Long Island would later become the setting for one of the greatest paranormal stories ever told.

The Amityville Horror became a force of it’s own in the paranormal world and the horror movie genre, spawning a legacy of books, films and documentary projects that try to shed light on the twenty-eight days the Lutz family spent in this apparent haunted house.

Naturally the house being the site of a multiple murder was thought to be one of the possible causes of the events that took place at the residence and at one time Ronald DeFeo even tried to fit the spooky scenario into one of his many version of what happened that night in 1974.

None the less. there is a man behind the myth, a man who gets up each morning to the routine of prison while serving his six twenty-five year to life sentences for his henious murder.

A man convicted robber turned author and journalist Daniel Genis got to know during his stay at Green Haven Correctional Facility…

US Military ‘Busts’ Wayward Area 51 Tourbus

Area 51 has become a legend in UFO lore as well as US military history.

A site developed for secluded military aircraft testing, rumors of aliens and UFOs have made this a hot spot for believers and curiosity seekers since the base was formally revealed to the public in 1989.

Armed ‘Camo Dudes’ watch the approach from above the dusty road that leads to the base, civilians are not allowed past a certain point on the roadway and deadly force is authorized if you disobey the posted signs and try to venture closer to Area 51.

The infamy and the rumors made this a good destination for Adventure Photo Tours, which takes small groups out to the roadway, stopping before they cross onto the forbidden section of the road.

In late may of this year, tour bus driver Denis Ryan made a mistake and went past the posted signs and wound up in a bit of hot water.

CIA Admits UFO Hoax-Or Did They?

CIA

Ahhh, the CIA.

Formed to replace the OSS after World War Two ended in 1947, these are the shady guys who you can blame for everything from the JFK assassination to any secretive operations in the United States or abroad.

They are the guys that rule the suspense and thriller movie genre.

Being a 21st century kind of agency, they recently found themselves with a  Twitter account.

And while they have not released the location of Jimmy Hoffa or told anyone that Ronald Reagan was really a robot for most of his terms, they have tweeted about being responsible for the wave of UFO sightings in Norway in the 1950’s.

Or did they?

The music world has plenty of session players and background vocalists that you have probably never heard of but have been on some of your favorite albums and singles.

Invaluable as they are, these session artists are so far out of the spot light they may as well be dead.

Or ghosts.
