Unexplained Activity of British Columbia

Blair Adams

Blair Adams was a seemingly normal man living in Canada, working at a construction company and appearing content in life.  One day, without warning, everything about Blair’s life mysteriously changed.   In just a few days Blair emptied his savings account, quit his job,  made several attempts to flee the country, all before being found dead half-naked in a parking lot in Knoxville, Tennessee.  What caused his sudden paranoia,  who he was running from, and the ultimate motive for his bizarre death is still unknown to this day.

What caused this man to turn his life upside down without warning?  What scared Blair so badly that he did everything he could to escape Canada, and then to keep running once he did.  Who killed Blair, and for what reason?  This episode discusses the unusual story behind this case, and the popular theories behind the many strange events that happened in Blair Adam’s final days.

The Summerwind Haunting

Located in the northeast region of Wisconsin, the Summerwind Mansion is one of the oldest and most popular tales of a haunted house in America.  Beginning in the early 1900s, several owners who have lived at Summerwind have experienced unexplained and disturbing paranormal activity.  From ghostly apparitions, creepy voices and shadow figures, corpses found in hidden crawlspaces, and the house’s apparent ability to change its shape, the Summerwind Mansion remains as a favorite scary legend among the locals.

Though the house is now just a site of burnt ruins, the mansion had a dark history of paranormal events.  Three different owners experienced strange and disturbing occurrences during their stay.  The first owner, Robert Lamont, was so startled by the sudden appearance of a spirit that he fired his pistol at it.  The Hinshaw Family lasted only six months before being driven away by the wide range of disturbing and frightening experiences, to the point that the husband and wife had mental breakdowns.  Finally a man named Raymond Bober wrote a book detailing his time staying at the mansion, claiming that the dimension and layout of the house would change overnight without any explanation.

Is there any legitimacy to the claims of the haunting at Summerwind?  Are all these events just a coincidence, or is there something unknown underlying and tying together the plights of these three owners?  Listen in and hear all about this fascinating haunting!

The Mysterious Disappearance of Thelma Krull

In this episode of Strange Matters the sudden and mysterious disappearance of Thelma Krull is discussed.  Thelma was a 57 year old grandmother living in Winnipeg, Canada.  On the morning of July 11th, 2015, she left for her usual morning walk.  At some point in her walk along quiet neighborhood roads and local parks, something unexpected must have happened.   As a result, Thelma Krull would never be seen again.

The case of Thelma Krull is strange and unusual in several ways.  It is rare that an established member of the community could just vanish during the day while walking along public pathways.  Leaving virtually no evidence or clues behind, both family members and Law Enforcement were left with nothing but speculation on what happened to the missing woman.   To this day there is still no definitive answer as to what caused the sudden and unexplained disappearance of Thelma Krull.
