EGreetings fellow weirdos! We are back this week with a new mystery, this time involving a series of apocryphal paintings and a string of house fires in the UK in the 1980s.

UK tabloid The Sun ran a story of an abused young subject and the painter who tormented him. But is there any truth to this tale? Jose and Brad investigate!
