That Murder & Mystery Show
The Mad Gasser
During the Holiday season of 1933 and into early 1934 a terror gripped the county of Botetourt in Virginia. While no one died, there would be numerous accounts of an individual creeping around locals' residences in the still night and spraying an unknown gas through an open or compromised window. Similar attacks would happen in an entirely different region during the summer of 1944 as the fiend made their presence known in Mattoon, Illinois. Could these two Anesthetic Prowlers--a decade apart--be the same person? M. Swift looks at a few theories and discusses it as he tells the tale of the Mad Gasser.
