Guys!! It’s a special Halloween 🎃 episode of Crime Countdown! If you haven’t checked out our other podcast with Parcast, give this one a listen. We think your will love it, especially when digging out that extra nightlight tonight. Enjoy! -Alaina & Ash
This week we’re talking about one of the most haunted objects in the world. The Dybbuk box stepped on the ebay scene in September 2001 and nothing has ever been the same. The word, “Dybbuk” comes from Jewish folklore and literally means, “to cling.” An otherworldly spirit was captured in the box during the holocaust and when Kevin Mannis bought it at an estate sale, brought it home and opened it, his life changed forever. So did the lives of the next two owners, and anyone who has seen the movie The Possession, based on the box! Keep it weird, but not so weird that you open a cursed box and ruin your life!

It’s a haunted Morbid up in here! Alaina tells us the history and all the terrifying hauntings going on at Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana, one of the most haunted homes in America. Myrtles has been around since 1796 and some of the hauntings going on include: shaking beds, floating children, and who knows maybe the ghost of a small child will crawl into bed with you at night!? Alaina is taking applications for a pal to go with her when Rona is gone, because Ash is all set.

You asked, Jon Allen delivered. What better way to spend your Tuesday afternoon than to listen to the poetic beat of a Jon Allen listener tale? Jon wrote to us about his experience as an 8 year old who spent the night in a haunted farm house and was, honestly, graced by the presence of a ghost named Rachel!
Sometimes justice is a plate best served cold. 20 years ago a clown knocked on Marlene Warren’s door holding balloons, flowers and something else incredibly sinister. While the clown walked calmly away to their white Chrysler Le Baron, Marlene was left lying in a pool of blood. They looked at the husband straight away, his alibi was air tight…. Or was it? Maybe his mistress Sheila Keen could offer up some information? As always thank you to our sponsors!
