It was April 5, 1984 in Pleasanton, CA. 14 year old Tina Fealz was walking home from school by way of a shortcut running under the 680 freeway. A short time later her bloodied body was found. Tina had been stabbed 44 times. The police were not short of suspects, but one by one they they fell off the list. In this episode Bettina covers the ins and outs of the case, introducing listeners to Tina Fealz, her untimely death and the men who were questioned in the years following the murder. This is not an unsolved crime, the killer is behind bars, but will he soon be paroled?

Beth covers movies and their sets that are reported to have been haunted. Curses claiming the lives of actors and members of their families. Strange illnesses affecting actors. Objects moving around the movie set. Listeners will be stunned after hearing the unexplained activities happening on the sets of Amityville Horror, The Conjuring and The Omen…just to name a few of the movies Beth covers.

The Exorcist, a 1973 classic, also one of the most frightening movies to hit the screen (in Bettina’s humble opinion) had many disturbing events during it’s filming.
