Much like the late, great Bob Ross, Rory Silk was a man with a passion to teach painting. When he gets a gift from a "fan" he immediately hangs it up in his studio... only to realize the painting, called The Ravenous One, is having an effect on his mental health. 

I used to put in links to the previous episodes that were references, but that's gotten too cumbersome. All these episodes are so heavily linked together. To g...

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
