    The Man In The Green Pajamas

    The Man In The Green Pajamas

    It was at the Sandman where the man in the green pajamas was staying when he came to Jacksonville. Of course, that wasn’t his name. It was Bruce Campbell, and he was a stockbroker from Massachusetts. He came here to visit his son, who was then a professor at MacMurray College in town. Bruce’s first grandchild had just been born and it was meant to be a happy visit for the family.
    But it turned out to be a tragic one.

    Season Seven Trailer and Topic Reveal

    Season Seven Trailer and Topic Reveal

    Season seven of the American Hauntings Podcast, "GONE", will include stories of mysterious and impossible disappearances that we found in the archives to be the most intriguing, compelling, and downright chilling.
    If all these people vanished so easily from the face of the earth, then it means that it could happen to anyone – perhaps even you.
    Because, as you’ll learn this season, a disappearance doesn’t have to be possible in order for it to occur. In fact, one of the most baffling vanishings of all time simply couldn’t have happened – and yet it did.

    The Lawson Family Christmas

    The Lawson Family Christmas

    Charlie Lawson, the quiet, unassuming man had become more outgoing, especially with the children. He laughed and told jokes, which he never did. His wife might have been happy with those changes in her husband if they hadn’t been so abrupt – and if Charlie had not been spending an inordinate amount of time with their 17-year-old daughter, Marie. Something terrible was going to happen, and it would ruin Christmas in a way that only murder and tragedy can do.

    Victims of the Ax Fiend

    Victims of the Ax Fiend

    One of the strangest murder sprees in American history occurred across Louisiana and Texas in the early 1910s. Local newspapers called the first crime "the most brutal murder in the history of this section," and there would be many more -- all linked to the same killer. The newspapers of the era, dealing with murder victims that were all African-Americans, claimed the killings were connected to a deranged Voodoo woman and a cult called the "Church of Sacrifice," which used the victims for bloody rituals. The story wasn't true – the real story may have been even stranger – and they remain unsolved.

    The Bluebeard Of Quiet Dell

    The Bluebeard Of Quiet Dell

    During the early years of the Great Depression, the crimes of Harry Powers appalled and fascinated thousands of people, but he is barely remembered today – much like the methods that he used to find his victims. He sought out women through matrimonial mail-order ads, seeking wives to live on his peaceful West Virginia farm. But those who answered the ads were never seen again.

@Denney-Josh ,

Thank the podcast Gods!!!!

Finally, a podcast that I can listen to for hours at a time. You guys are truly the best at what you do, thanks so much for all of the things you all do to make This podcast one of the best… if not the best.

R Sorensen ,

Love this!

Hi-

I have been working my way through your podcast as we remodel our house. Lots of painting right now and it breaks up the monotony nicely! History has been a love of mine for so long! It’s like a good book, but better because it’s real. So of course I love the history of all your episodes. I’m in the Hollywood season and enjoying your mob episode!
As I was listening I was wondering if Troy has ever read the The Last Testament of Lucky Luciano? (pronounced Loo-chi-ano) I know you guys try your best, but any c with an i after it is pronounced with a ch sound in Italian.
Anyway, the book was written with Luciano himself telling his life story, it wasn’t published until Luciano died to protect him from mob retaliation. It’s a fascinating read, my father introduced me to it when I was a sophomore in high school and I have loved it ever since.
According to the book Siegel, Lanksy, and Luciano grew up in the same neighborhood. They started out together doing small time B&E working their way up and into the Mafia. Thought you might find it interesting if you haven’t read it.
I love the show and am actually enjoying the monotonous work just so I can listen.

Thanks guys -

Rhys Sorensen

Podcast I Didn’t Know I Needed

Was searching around for a new paranormal podcast and stumbled across American Hauntings. The history of locations is what I enjoy most of may haunted/paranormal program and this podcast scratches that itch perfectly! Started in mid woods and fields, and am working through the New Orleans season now!
