IN THIS EPISODE: Could the legend of the Pied Piper hint at a real horrific event that befell the town of Hamelin more than 700 years ago? (The True Story of the Pied Piper) *** Ever woken up suddenly by a loud blast like a gun shot or slamming door, only to wake up and realize there really was no sound at all that was made? This is known as Exploding Head Syndrome, and if you’ve experienced it, you’ve likely not got long to live. Or do you? (Exploding Head Syndrome) *** In 1944, the small town of Mattoon, Illinois was terrorized by a man in black who, according to witnesses and testimony, attacked unsuspecting homeowners with a paralyzing gas he would spray through their windows. Who was he? Why did he do it? The man and the motive are still a mystery. (The Mad Gasser of Mattoon) *** When you hear the name Jigsaw, you likely immediately think of the puppet with the creepy voice of a serial killer who sets up elaborate deaths for his victims in a game only he enjoys. But in 1935 another man’s brutal deeds earned him the same nickname… only his story wasn’t Hollywood fiction. (The Real Jigsaw)
