Whenever Halloween rolls around every year, the autumn air becomes eerily filled with everyone telling his or her own scary tales. The television networks run their plethora of materials that feature vampires, werewolves, ghosts, ghouls, and goblins. School children do their best to torment their classmates’ thoughts, and they attempt to keep each other up at night. To me, the most frightening stories are the stories that also happen to be true stories.
