Bridgewater Triangle Series…Part One, Satanic Panic…

The Bridgewater Triangle has many strange tales to tell and this is just one of them…

While scrolling away looking for something to watch I stumbled on a true crime mini series titled Fall River. Fall River is a town within the high strangeness area code of the Bridgewater Triangle. Fall River, mostly known from Lizzie Borden fame but it also has other grisly crimes its known for and the Satanic Panic murder case of Carl Drew is just one of them…

In 1980 there were two horrible vicious murders that took place around the infamous Freetown Forest area; known for anything from Bigfoot to UFOs. But this area also had another secret underworld to deal with, drugs and prostitution.

Carl Drew, known by the local police as a pimp and drug dealer at the top of the food chain in the Fall River area now became a number one suspect for the brutal murders of two females that worked on the streets for him.

But was Drew actually the murderer? Fall River seems to point to the possibilities that other suspects also had their reasons for murder.

Something wicked this way comes…

Carl Drew was said to be a satanic cult leader that believed he needed to have a blood sacrifice every 30 days on the full moon, he’d follow a ritual where victims are offered up as a sacrifice to Satan, who’ll then rise from the center of the pentagram. (not sure that really worked right) These rituals also allegedly included orgies and rituals where they wood replace the wine and the host of Catholic ceremonies with bodily fluids. Yeah I know my stomach flip flopped too while I watched this.

Drugs, prostitution and satan oh my…

In October 1979 the body of 17 year old Doreen Levesque was discovered at Diman Vocational High School. Her wrists were tied, she had been stabbed in the head and sustained multiple skull fractures, the medical examiners even suggested she may have been killed by stoning.

Witnesses stated that she was their sacrifice to satan and that Drew had ordered her throat to be slashed after her skull was fractured and began chanting an incoherent chant. It was said that Carl used his Satanic worship to scare and control all the prostitutes that worked on the street for him.

The second murdered girl, Karen Marsden was murdered because she was present at the first murder and was heard to be cutting a deal with the prosecution as a witness. Her throat was also cut and was said that Drew tore her head from her body and kicked the head like a ball. They finished up making by making Xs on her body using her blood. The documentary went into more detail so I’ll leave some of that information for later for you to see.

The documentary was suggesting maybe Carl Drew wasn’t the murderer and perhaps it was a different previous suspect. They are trying to appeal to get Drew a new trial, I will definitely follow this story and see what shakes out in the end after all this time. I recommend the watching the limited series for yourself to get the whole story, and see what you think…

I warn you the details of the murder are tough to see so maybe you need to hold the remote, ready to fast forward. I’m not sure who I think actually ordered these killings. I’m not sure I care which one. To me they were all a bad crew and should definitely be in jail forever…for something…

You can find Fall River on Epix.

Working Together…A Documentary

I recently sat down to watch a new documentary titled Working Together. The documentary features a few different bigfoot researchers Matt from Central Florida Bigfoo, Mike from Tactical Bigfoot Research, Tim T. from Florida and Bigfoot Dave coming together to investigate an area in the Florida swamps. I had seen some sneak peeks of it on Instagram so I was looking forward to catching it and I’m happy to say I was not disappointed.

The title of the documentary, (Working Together) says it all. And it was just that, it was four teams coming together to search for evidence of the skunk ape led by Matt Larson of Central Florida Bigfoot. They hit the woods and swamps of Florida searching for bigfoot, or the skunk ape as he’s referred to in those parts.

They picked an amazing area to explore, and if it wasn’t so tropical in Florida at that time, I may have smuggled myself into one of their bags, but the area had me picturing many many mosquito bites. And a loss of 20 pounds water weight.

I love the whole concept of Working Together. Everyone has something unique and interesting to bring to the table, you should take advantage of that whenever you can, and you will probably learn a few new tricks of the trade along the way. Different fresh perspectives can really make a difference out there in the field looking at evidence. I have noticed lately that there have been more collaborations than before, lets keep it up, after all, we do have a common goal here, find evidence that bigfoot exists and is possibly roaming in our neck of the woods.

Breaking out the measuring tape to document the print…Tim T documenting on film

Although the group headed out with all the equipment you’d ever want to bring out researching, which is great, I really enjoyed their personal attention to the evidence and interactions the most. They were focused on the evidence around them, they found some interesting things too, but I’m not going to give away the good stuff, you have to watch it for yourself. I loved that they took a very forensic crime scene approach to what they were seeing , it is how we all should be documenting our evidence.

While they were examining everything before them they were also offering good suggestions on the latest equipment and apps out there that could help assist you in your search. I personally have already taken advantage of two of the apps mentioned. The Cornell Library Bird call identifier and a 3D photo app that actually saved me in the field last summer when I came up on an interesting print and nothing to cast it with me.

I appreciated that Matt didn’t over produce this documentary with all the dramatic bells and whistles. There was no soundtrack playing which allowed us to hear nature’s chorus instead. The only thing I would have wanted differently was that I wasn’t able to hear some of the conversations happening and it left me wondering if maybe I missed some good tips etc. but he may have done that intentionally for privacy.

I’m recommending this documentary highly. It’s what bigfoot research should be, you can click the link to watch, it’s streaming free on YouTube…
