What if you heard someone pelting your house with rocks, then investigated to find yourself face to face with a large hairy beast on two legs. In 1978, the Cayton family and several others living in and around Minerva reported seeing a manlike creature they couldn't identify lurking in the woods, something that has come to be known simply as "the Minerva Monster."

In 2000, someone bludgeoned Leiland "Buster" Cannon in his home in Muskingum County's hamlet of East Fultonham. But our research showed there was so much more to know about the endearing grandfather because highlights of his life had been documented by his hometown newspaper for 74 years.

At Salem Cemetery is a statue, said to be a harbinger of death for anyone who catches her gaze.

Eddie Rickenbacker defied death a handful of times growing up in Columbus, Ohio. He figured God was intervening. It was hard to argue the point after he survived accidents as a race car driver, being America's top combat air pilot of World War I, a civilian plane crash that killed half the passengers, and a World War II mission that left him adrift at sea for 24 days.

In 1970, Rock Creek Police Chief Robert Hamrick was pursuing a speeding car when his cruiser went off the isolated dirt road and struck a tree. Though it looked like a car accident, the fact that his revolver and night stick were missing and his skull was crushed when no car windows were broken had many thinking it was the murderous act of a local street gang.
