The Truck Stop Killer and Myrtles Plantation

EOn episode forty-one, Whitney kicks off the true crime portion of the show with a story about the truck stop killer. This case was recommended to us by our friend Leah, and it's as horrific as it is fascinating. After that, Ty opens up the paranormal half of the show with his story about the famously haunted Myrtles plantation. Myrtles is home to several different spirits, but the most widely known (and perhaps saddest) is the spirit of a former slave named Chloe. So settle in, turn out the lights, and get ready to take some shots in the dark with us. Cheers!
