#65 (Class) Action Park

Between the years of 1978 and 1996, the place to spend hot Jersey summers was at a place known as action park, it was high adrenaline, high stakes, and with low-security and almost zero safety features it was a park that allowed the rider to be in control of their experience.
And though mixing high stakes rides with loads of alcohol and then hiring a bunch of teenage employees may sound like a good idea...wait no it doesn't…but it does sound like the blueprint for one of America's worst water parks….

#62 The Summum Pyramid (Cult?)

Today we are traveling to the great pyramid of Salt Lake City, Utah. Founded by Claude Nowell or as he's known in his community Bonum Amen Ra or Corky Ra, the small religious sect known as Summum, practices things like meditation, yoga and of course mummification of their beloved pets, and people alike.

On May 6, 1996 two 19-year old girls in Japan went to visit a haunted hotel and disappeared, then 25 years later the girls were found at the bottom of the sea. How did they end up there?

#58 The Lake Bodom Murders

There is a small town in Finland located just west of the country’s capital city of Helsinki, this small town is known as Espoo. The town has been a growing metropolis since the end of WW1, and by the 1960’s it was thriving, but still maintained that small town feel.  That is precisely why a group of four teenagers felt comfortable pitching a tent on the shores of Lake Bodom, but a night that started out as fun and leisurely, quickly turned into a cold-blooded massacre.

SandU Stories: Chapter 3 “The Las Cruces Bowl Massacre”

Ida was frozen with fear when the man first spoke and it was as if she was underwater, seeing his mouth move and just fuzzy sounds coming out, Ida had been too distracted to pay attention to what the man was saying, her eyes were locked on the .22 caliber pistol he carried in his hand.
The man spoke again this time louder and a little more irritated,
“I said come on. Can't you hear, don’t try to run, and for god sake don’t scream. Come with me now. NOW!”

So she gets Sky and his sister dressed, grabs only her keys, leaving her phone, wallet and purse at the apartment, she leaves for the hospital which is  just a few miles down the road. She takes a very desolate road, it's on that road Julia claims her car ran out of gas.
So Julia gets her 4 year old daughter out of the car, secures Sky in his car seat, shuts the door and walks about a mile to the nearest gas station. She left Sky in his car seat in the car, and left to go get gas. It takes her an hour to make the one mile walk. When she gets to the gas station she calls a friend who lives nearby and asks if she can come pick her up. They make it back to Julia’s car only to find Sky’s car seat empty, and Sky nowhere to be found.
