    S5-E51 North Pond Hermit

    Murder + Horrific = Murderific.

    Imagine living in the woods for a month. What about a year? How about 27 years?! How about when the temperature drops to minus-40 degrees Fahrenheit? Christopher Thomas Knight lived without human contact for 27 years in the Maine woods between 1986 and 2013. He also committed over 1,000 burglaries during that time in order to survive. This is his story. Thanks to my special guest host, Roderick.
