Case 1 | Case 2 | Case 3 | Case 4 | Case 5 As always, my grandpa and I read the comments on these posts together. He absolutely loves hearing what you all have to say. He loves your theories, he very much appreciates your well wishes, but he rebuffs the claims that he …

The kids in my neighborhood haven’t stopped trick-or-treating

In our neighborhood, in the town of Wauwatosa, WI, trick-or-treating was initially scheduled for October 27th. Inclement weather called for a reschedule, so it ended up being on Halloween night, which as you know was a Thursday this year. Weather again caused a cancellation, but finally, the night after Halloween, trick-or-treating was held. It was …

They say the snuff film industry doesn’t exist. It does. [Part 1]

When I heard my parents were going to be opening a video store, I was ecstatic. It wasn’t going to be a Blockbuster or a Family Video, it was going to be *ours*. My older brother and I eagerly awaited as renovations and setup got underway, making lists of films we would watch when the …

My grandpa, a retired homicide detective, just told me the single worst sight he saw in his career

Case 1 | Case 2 It was, uh, 19…93, I think. Ah, you know, after a while these things start to blend together. Dates, some names. And I’m an old man now, that doesn’t help. But I remember the important things. I don’t know if it’s that I just have a good memory or if …

My Grandpa, a retired homicide detective, told me another one of his cases

My grandpa, a retired homicide detective, just told me the case that still keeps him up at night

I’ve heard a lot of stories from my grandfather. He was a detective for 27 years of his life, and I grew up listening to the tales of he and his fellow lawmen. As a child, he obviously amended the stories quite a bit to make them age-appropriate, but as I grew up, more and …
