Root: twenty six, the merry night murder- I am a thumb family, I'm a little late to the murder party fits than women. It's not a party that, since I started listening, I have infringing like crazy. My hometown, murder is a pretty crazy one, mostly because of the ghost of the victim has been seen many times over the years anyways I live in asleep a little town called Poland main, I wonder, is like that such Poland, springs from a delicious water could be, will look into it with just a few thousand living souls and possibly a few other spectators. So it's a tiny town. I love allow. Every year, when October rules around the stories come back to life about the murder of Mary night, also known as the ghost of root twenty six Mary night was gruesomely murdered on October sixth, eighteen, fifty six by her husband, George, who is twenty years younger than her hull,
Mary had been ill for quite some time before her murder. Many people, including her doktor, believe that her husband was poisoning her fact that night on sixth Mary was murdered in cold blood, while she was lying in bed with Georgia's eighty three year old mother said it for some reason she had gone to bed with his mother that night, maybe because she felt the evil that was soon to occur. When marries body was discovered, people at first thought it might be a suicide, but it was soon clear that she had been murdered. A few days later, George was arrested for that murder of his wife said the word murder fifteen times a while the scene of the murder is just down the road from my house. The home is no longer there. The homestead changed chance many times over the years, but the house is no longer. This leads us to the ghost of root. Twenty six, who is believed to be married. A woman in a white dress, sometimes resembling a wedding dress, has been seen walking or hitchhiking along route. Twenty no way, many times once my mom was driving by a cemetery on route, twenty six and she saw a bride in the cemetery getting her photo taken. Maybe it was a real brought in a cemetery without a sound like a goes action
no she's got one foot up on a tombstone, that's amazing, Garth yeah, guys the avenue nineties got off high school students need to go somewhere and it's not gonna be the Fuckin MA. It's gonna be the cemeteries. Although I've never personally seen her many locals have some people believe that she searching for her house. That is no longer there. Whether the ghost is real or not. Marry night was still gruesomely murdered in my small town of Poland and her memory will never be forgotten, stay sexy and don't get murdered, love Nicole. Ah, that's so like a thoughtful tribute. A thoughtful ghost based classic hometown? Yes, bring the mine the crime and archaeology the idea behind missing children. Unmet cartons, ok, sanskrit, let em family I've been wanting to write and forever, but since you guys covered my hometown carry saner in like episode, one and nothing much goes on in that small town. I've been waiting for something else across my path and luckily that
today I work for, and archaeology firm in the Bay area today. I'm doing lab analysis. Both my passions collided, archaeology and true crime, and I was so excited with what I am coward and I knew how to write in. We have begun recently the analyze, the artifacts that were recovered from the nineteenth century. American period features. I don't know that means one artifacts particular caught my eye because it was a clear glass bottle with the words Charlie Ross written across the end and the image of a little boy, underneath my job was to figure out a date. Ranch for this bottle sometimes take a great deal of time and a ton of research, but with this particular bottle it was simply as typing in the name, and this is what I discovered on July. First,
eighteen. Seventy four Charlie and Walter Ross, who are foreign five years old at the time, were kidnapped in front of their families mansion in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania wow. This kidnapping marked the first for ransom and the United States. Well, the boys were approached by two men who offered them candy to take a ride with them. They did so and proceeded to a store in Philadelphia were Walter was instructed to go by fireworks inside the store Walter, inside, but as he did, the man left with his brother, Charlie, leaving alter behind Charley, was never seen again. The boys father began receiving ransom demands from the kidnappers not being able to pay the ransom. The boys father went to the police which led to the kidnapping, making national news, flyers, reprinted and posted, but Charley was never found. Cologne or per few bottles were made with Charlie's name and photo embossed on them. This was to help
read the word of Charlie's disappear and LO. The idea behind these is that they would be on someone Strasser for an extended period of time, not tossed the trash, like ordinary items, that way to leave an impression of the poor missing boy. Although Charley was never found, it is said that his kidnappers were caught according to sources online. These bottles are very difficult to find and I feel extremely lucky to have come across one while wasting away at work. Wow anyways. I hope you enjoy this interesting story that Charlie Ross. I want you to know it took everything at me not to begin this letter with for babies, just because I know how much you hate. Also, if you do this out loud on episode of Quick Pierre, say that archaeology is nothing like Indiana Jones and no, we do not dig up dinosaurs. That's paleontology, much love jewels, but thanks are clearing up Julia. We ve all been talking about the confusion and how much it's ruining our lives. Ok, I'm not gonna. Do that. Have declined in this case. I think it is too good read how YO
Are we still doing grandparents stories? Is that a thing? If so, I wanted to tell you one of the many also stories about my bad ass, great grandmother to set the scene. It's two thousand six in a small steel town in Pennsylvania is airy. And my then eighty three year old, great grandmother is behind the bar of the bar and restaurant she's own for more than thirty years is a quiet night, and my great grandmother is alone when a man she recognizes from earlier in the evening strolls into the bar. This time, however, he's wielding a shot, gun and demanding that she gave him all the money in the cash register. My great grandmother calmly reaches behind the bar to Robert Chip Jar and throw some ones and the robbers direction. Demanding more money them
threatens her with a shotgun and tells her to open the cash register obliging she turns around to face the register, but instead of pulling out any money, she grabs the pistol she kept behind the bar and turns back to confront the robber full of spite. She tells him if you get out of here, I'll shoot you right now. It's not I'm not about to put up with any shit right off the street to do so, unlike in her family and family, rather than coming in for awhile and slowly start the Shit valley friend not fresh off the strain of no reservations. Lily, not her fight of a woman nearly six decades older than him. He was twenty three the dude runs out of the bar and as later arrested that night, the story was covered by local newspapers and new channels, but I think the one detail that never made it to the public is it the pistol? My great grandmother pulled on that Robert was actually a toy God. I write it was made of plastic and completely harmless, but that woman could put the fear of Jesus into any one. So it again
it didn't really matter. My great grandmother owned and worked in not far until she was ninety years old. She put her heart and soul into that place. I'll, never forget, literally growing up in that bar. She was there. She very recently passed away at ninety six and was full of life and smoke and swear words until the very end she has hands down the most badass woman. I've ever known, thanks for all that, you do stay sexy and always keep a toy gun behind the bar de that's good
I always wanted to finally be called to be part of a like family restaurant yeah. Yeah. Now young is like a hang. A hang every night, yeah there's always be kind of people in the MAC Gray, unlike generations work there. I love that hey.
