Wyndham: HAVING GROWN UP IN CLEVELAND, THE STORY OF BOSTON, OHIO,

IS A SPECIAL ONE FOR ME.

AS KIDS, WE ALL HEARD OF RUMORS ABOUT MUTANTS,

SATANISTS, MONSTERS,

BUT NONE OF US REALLY KNEW WHAT HAPPENED THERE.

THESE KIDS WERE DOING THE EXACT SAME THINGS THAT WE ALL DID

WHEN WE WERE YOUNGER,

EXCEPT THEY TOOK IT A STEP FURTHER.

THEY BROKE INTO AREAS IN THE VALLEY

THAT WERE STRICTLY OFF-LIMITS.

-IT LOOKS LIKE BLOOD. -PERFECT.

MY NAME'S PAUL WYNDHAM.

I'M A PROFESSOR OF FOLKLORE MYTHOLOGY

HERE AT THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE IN CUYAHOGA.

I TEACH THE HISTORY OF BOSTON, OHIO, AS PART OF MY CURRICULUM

BECAUSE I THINK IT'S A PERFECT EXAMPLE

OF HOW CONTEMPORARY LEGENDS ORIGINATE.

IN 1974, THE U.S. GOVERNMENT, UNDER THE ORDERS OF GERALD FORD,

EXERCISED EMINENT DOMAIN OVER THE TOWN OF BOSTON, OHIO.

NOW, THEY DID THIS TO APPROPRIATE THE LAND

FOR THE CREATION OF A NATIONAL PARK.

WHAT MADE THIS HIGHLY CONTROVERSIAL AT THE TIME

WAS THAT, IT MEANT THE DISPLACEMENT

OF HUNDREDS OF RESIDENTS LIVING IN THE AREA.

Announcer: WJKW TV8, CLEVELAND.

PROPERTY OWNERS IN PENINSULA ARE REALLY UPSET,

SAYING THEY'RE LOSING THEIR LAND TO THE GOVERNMENT.

SO, I SAID TO THE LAWYER, "WHY CAN'T WE JUST IGNORE

THE SONS OF BITCHES?"

AND HE SAID, "YOU CAN'T."

AND I SAID, "WHY?"

HE SAID, "'CAUSE THEY'LL SEND OUR MEN

TO TAKE IT AWAY FROM YOU."

MY GRANDSON, CONOR, IS DEAF.

HOW'S HE GOING TO ADJUST IF WE HAVE TO MOVE TO A NEW COMMUNITY?

HE'S HAPPY HERE.

HE'S USED TO IT. I'M HAPPY HERE.

I'M COMFORTABLE HERE.

Wyndham: BECAUSE OF THE WAY THE EVACUATION OF THE TOWN

WAS EXPEDITED,

A NUMBER OF CONSPIRACY THEORIES AROSE TO EXPLAIN

WHY THE GOVERNMENT WOULD ESSENTIALLY WANT TO WIPE

BOSTON, OHIO, OFF THE MAP.

Greenbaum: WHAT HAPPENED IN BOSTON, OHIO, WAS UNPRECEDENTED.

IT STILL RESONATES TO THIS DAY.

PEOPLE ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT.

YOU CAN GO ONLINE AND GOOGLE THE SUBJECT,

AND YOU'LL FIND ALL KINDS OF FORUMS

AND ALL KINDS OF INFORMATION.

I 100% BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A COVER-UP.

THE BILL THAT PERMITTED THE GOVERNMENT

TO EXERCISE EMINENT DOMAIN OVER BOSTON

WAS SIGNED ON DECEMBER 27th,

2 DAYS AFTER CHRISTMAS.

GERALD FORD WASN'T EVEN IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

HE WAS ON A SKI TRIP IN VAIL, COLORADO, WITH HIS FAMILY.

THAT MEANS THEY TREATED THIS LIKE AN EMERGENCY ACTION.

WHY WOULD THEY SIGN SOMETHING OVER THE HOLIDAYS

TO START MOVING PEOPLE OUT AS FAST

AS THEY COULD FOR A NATIONAL PARK?

IT JUST DON'T MAKE ANY SENSE.

THE MOST PROMINENT CONSPIRACY THEORY

WAS THAT OF A CHEMICAL SPILL COVER-UP.

THIS BEGAN WITH A SULFUR SMELL THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY,

WHICH LOCALS ATTRIBUTED TO THE KREJCI DUMP,

WHERE THERE HAD BEEN REPORTS

OF ILLICIT CHEMICAL DUMPING BY GOVERNMENT AGENCIES.

THERE WERE ALSO REPORTS OF PARANORMAL ACTIVITY IN TOWN --

HUNDREDS OF ACCOUNTS, STARTING WITH THE ROAD INTO TOWN.

THERE'S A SUPERNATURAL FORCE

THAT TAKES OVER THE STEERING WHEEL OF DRIVERS,

WHICH HAS LED TO FATALITIES,

SOME OF WHICH HAVE BEEN BURIED IN THE LOCAL CEMETERY,

WHERE MORE SUPPOSED PARANORMAL SIGHTINGS HAVE TAKEN PLACE.

AND OF COURSE, THERE'S THE ABANDONED SLAUGHTERHOUSE

WHERE PEOPLE CLAIM THEY'VE SEEN SHADOWY FIGURES

AND UNEXPLAINED LIGHTS.

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY IN THE AREA ISN'T JUST A CURRENT PHENOMENON.

THIS DATES BACK TO BEFORE EUROPEANS EVEN ARRIVED.

THE ALGONQUIN WHO ORIGINALLY LIVED ON THAT LAND

USED TO TELL STORIES OF A CREATURE IN THE WOODS.

SOME SUGGEST THAT WHAT'S DROVE THEM OUT OF THE AREA.

BUT IN PARTICULAR, THERE'S THE CONNECTION

THIS PLACE HAS TO SATANIC RITUAL OR SATANIC CULTS.

THIS GOES WAY BACK TO THE FIRST EUROPEAN SETTLERS

FROM THE EARLY 1800s.

AT THE CENTER OF BOSTON, OHIO, IS THE MOTHER OF SORROWS CHURCH,

WHICH MANY POINT TO AS EVIDENCE OF THE TOWN'S SATANIC HISTORY,

THANKS TO TWO UPSIDE-DOWN CROSSES

FEATURED ON THE FRONT OF THE BUILDING.

WHAT REALLY PROPELLED THIS LEGEND

TO A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT LEVEL

WAS AN INCIDENT THAT OCCURRED MONTHS AFTER THE EVACUATION

WHICH INVOLVED THE U.S. ARMY.

Greenbaum: IN THE WAKE OF THE TOWN'S EVACUATION

IN THE SPRING OF 1975,

THERE WAS A DEBACLE INVOLVING THE UNITED STATES MILITARY

AND SEVERAL TOWNSPEOPLE WHO REFUSED TO LEAVE THE AREA.

THE ARMY SQUADRON INVOLVED IN THE CONFRONTATION

WAS FROM THE SIGNAL CORPS.

THEY'RE THE ONES THAT DID THE FILMING OF THE BATTLES

OF WORLD WAR II AND VIETNAM

THAT YOU SEE ALL THE TIME ON THE HISTORY CHANNEL.

WHAT COULD THEY HAVE POSSIBLY WANTED TO FILM

AFTER EVERYBODY HAD BEEN FORCED OUT OF TOWN?

NO ONE FROM THE GOVERNMENT WILL SPEAK ON THE RECORD

ABOUT THE INCIDENT OR THE EVACUATION OF BOSTON, OHIO.

THE ONLY RELIABLE INFORMATION WE HAVE IS THAT THERE WAS

ONE PERSON WHO SURVIVED THE FIASCO THAT TOOK PLACE

AFTER BOSTON WAS EVACUATED --

CORPORAL EVERETT McMAHON.

HE'S BECOME, LIKE, MY WHITE WHALE.

HE'S NEVER SPOKEN PUBLICLY ON THE MATTER.

THE TOWN HAS HAD A SENSE OF MACABRE ASSOCIATED WITH IT

FOR, BASICALLY, ITS ENTIRE EXISTENCE.

AND UNFORTUNATELY,

THIS REPUTATION IS STILL WITH THE TOWN TODAY.

LOCALS DON'T REFER TO THE AREA AS BOSTON, OHIO.

TODAY, IT'S KNOWN BY ANOTHER NAME.

Woman: THE FOUR TEENS INVOLVED ENTERED THE OFF-LIMITS AREA OF THE PARK,

AT WHICH POINT, THEY ENCOUNTERED WHAT WE ARE CURRENTLY ASSUMING

WAS A BEAR OR SOME ANIMAL.

Wyndham: ABOUT A WEEK AFTER THE INCIDENT,

PARK SERVICE HAD LOCATED AND EUTHANIZED THE ANIMAL.

AND FOR MOST PEOPLE, THAT WAS THAT,

BUT THIS WAS HUGE FOR CONSPIRACY THEORISTS.

THE GOVERNMENT WASN'T TRANSPARENT

ABOUT HOW THEY DETERMINED A BEAR

WAS EVEN RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ATTACK.

THEY DIDN'T RELEASE THE NECROPSY REPORT FOR THE BEAR.

THEY DIDN'T REPORT FINDING REMAINS OF THE TEEN IN THE BEAR.

EVERYONE WHO HAS SEEN "JAWS" KNOWS,

WHEN THERE'S AN ANIMAL ATTACK, YOU KILL THE ANIMAL,

AND THEN YOU CUT IT OPEN TO SEE

IF THERE'S ANY HUMAN REMAINS INSIDE.

THE GOVERNMENT HAS NEVER ACTUALLY CONFIRMED HOW THEY KNEW

THEY HAD THE CULPRIT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CASUALTY.

I'VE SCOURED THE VIDEO, AND THERE ARE A FEW INSTANCES

WHEN YOU GET A BETTER LOOK AT WHAT ATTACKED THE TEENAGERS,

AND IT'S NO BEAR.

IN FACT, I'VE SHARED THE AUDIO WITH NO FEWER

THAN SIX NORTH AMERICAN CARNIVORE EXPERTS,

AND NOT ONE OF THEM COULD PLACE THE ANIMAL THAT MADE THE CALL.

IT'S NOT A COYOTE.

IT'S NOT A COUGAR, AND IT'S NOT ANY KNOWN SPECIES OF BEAR.

IT'S LIKE 1975 ALL OVER AGAIN,

AND THAT BRINGS US BACK TO EVERETT McMAHON.

WHAT HE WITNESSED IN '75 IS THE KEY TO UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY

OF WHAT'S GOING ON IN HELLTOWN TODAY.

ULTIMATELY, I THINK THAT'S WHY HE'S AGREED TO TALK TO YOU GUYS.

HE FEELS A RESPONSIBILITY TO EXPOSE THE TRUTH.

McMahon: EVEN THOUGH IT HAPPENED MANY YEARS AGO,

I REMEMBER THE TINIEST OF DETAILS OF THAT NIGHT.

ANOTHER INCIDENT HAS TAKEN PLACE,

SO IT'S TIME FOR ME TO TELL MY STORY.

IT'S BECOME VERY IMPORTANT TO ME TO TELL MY STORY,

ESPECIALLY SINCE SOMETHING TERRIBLE HAS HAPPENED

IN BOSTON, OHIO, AGAIN.

I WANT TO GET THE TRUE STORY OUT TO THE PEOPLE.

I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT REALLY DID HAPPEN

BACK IN 1975.

I WAS A MEMBER OF THE ARMY SIGNAL CORPS FROM 1966 TO 1975.

I WAS TRAINED AS A SOUND RECORDIST.

EVENTUALLY, I DID TWO TOURS IN VIETNAM.

THAT WAS A LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCE.

I WAS WITH A SMALL CREW, AND WE WERE FILMING

SOME PRETTY CRAZY STUFF OVER THERE.

ONCE I FINISHED MY TOUR OF DUTY IN VIETNAM

AND HAD RETURNED HOME,

I WAS IMMEDIATELY INSTRUCTED TO JOIN A CREW

DOCUMENTING THE AFTERMATH OF THE EVACUATION OF A SMALL TOWN.

I GUESS IT WAS THOUGHT THIS WAS A USEFUL EXERCISE

AS A TEST SCENARIO TO SEE HOW AN EVACUATION

MIGHT PLAY OUT IN THE CASE OF A MAJOR EMERGENCY.

THIS WAS DURING THE COLD WAR, SO THE THREAT OF A NUCLEAR WAR

WAS STILL ON THE MINDS OF MANY.

I WAS TEAMED UP WITH A COUPLE OF GREAT GUYS

ONE OF THE FELLOWS WAS JACK WRIGHT.

HE WAS ONE HELL OF A CAMERAMAN.

HENRY MARTIN WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR INVENTORY DURING THE SHOOT.

WE WERE TO HEAD INTO THE AREA ON FOOT AT 0700 HOURS.

WE WOULD BE TAKING INVENTORY OF THE AREA

BY DOCUMENTING WHAT HAD BEEN LEFT BY THE RESIDENTS.

THE FIRST THING THEY DID WHEN WE ARRIVED WAS ISSUE US RIFLES.

I FOUND THAT RATHER STRANGE

BECAUSE WE WEREN'T GOING INTO A COMBAT ZONE.

HE SAID THERE WERE REPORTS OF SOME AGGRESSIVE TOWNSPEOPLE

WHO'VE REFUSED TO LEAVE THE AREA,

SO THE RIFLES WERE A SECURITY MEASURE.

THEY GAVE US A MAP OF THE AREA WITH A PREDETERMINED PATH,

AND WE WERE TO STAY ON THAT ROUTE.

THEY ALSO ADVISED THAT THERE WAS SEVERE RADIO INTERFERENCE

THROUGHOUT THE AREA, SO WALKIE-TALKIES WERE OUT.

I REMEMBER THINKING IT WAS STRANGE

THAT THERE WAS RADIO INTERFERENCE

IN A PLACE THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE UNPOPULATED.

SO, INSTEAD, THEY ISSUED US FLARES,

IN CASE WE GOT OURSELVES INTO AN EMERGENCY SITUATION.

THEY ALSO ASKED US TO FILM ANY ABNORMALITIES

THAT WE MAY ENCOUNTER.

OR TEARING OF FLESH.

FURTHERMORE, IT SAYS THAT THE INTEGUMENTARY SYSTEM --

THAT'S A FANCY WORD FOR THE VICTIM'S SKIN --

WAS LEFT ALMOST WHOLLY INTACT.

BUT THE CORPSE WAS MISSING

"WHEN YOU'VE EXCLUDED THE IMPOSSIBLE, WHATEVER IS LEFT,

NO MATTER HOW IMPROBABLE, MUST BE THE TRUTH."

WE WERE TOLD THE AREA WAS ABANDONED,

BUT SOMEONE WAS SEEMINGLY WATCHING OVER

ONE OF THE GRAVESTONES.

THERE WERE FRESH FLOWERS.

LIKE, CLEARLY, THEY HAD BEEN PLACED THERE RECENTLY.

Wyndham: IRISH SETTLERS FIRST ARRIVED IN OHIO IN THE EARLY 1800s.

IT WAS A PREACHER BY THE NAME OF REED FARRINGTON

WHO LED A SMALL GROUP OF PEOPLE TO THE BOSTON,

OHIO, AREA TO SETTLE.

FOR YEARS, THAT PARTICULAR SECTION OF LAND

REMAINED UNCLAIMED BY EUROPEANS

BECAUSE THE ALGONQUIN THAT LIVED THERE

HAD DEEMED PARTS OF THE LAND SACRED.

IN THE EYES OF EUROPEANS LIKE REED,

SACRED LAND WAS SEEN AS AN OPPORTUNITY.

SACRALITY MEANT NOTHING TO HIM.

REED DECIDED TO IGNORE THE WARNINGS

BECAUSE HE WAS DETERMINED TO SETTLE THAT AREA.

BUT VERY QUICKLY, THEY REALIZED

THAT THE SUPPOSEDLY CURSED LAND WAS BARREN.

SOME SAID THAT THE SOIL WAS POISONED,

THAT THE WHOLE PLACE WAS TOXIC.

PEOPLE SUGGESTED THEY WERE BEING PUNISHED

FOR SETTLING ON SACRED LAND.

WHAT REED AND HIS PEOPLE DIDN'T KNOW WAS THAT,

THAT WAS THE LEAST OF THEIR WORRIES.

THERE WAS A FIRST-HAND ACCOUNT OF SOMETHING MUCH MORE DANGEROUS

LURKING IN THE WOODS.

IT'S A SUPERNATURAL SPIRIT THAT PRACTICES CANNIBALISM.

IT'S JUST, LIKE, FOLKLORE THAT WITHIN THE WRONG HANDS,

CAN BE USED TO INSTILL FEAR AND MANIPULATE THE PEOPLE.

Wyndham: WORD QUICKLY SPREAD AROUND TOWN OF THIS CREATURE

LINGERING IN THE WOODS.

REED BELIEVED THAT WHAT MARCUS SAW WAS AN ALGONQUIAN LEGEND

THAT HE'D HEARD ABOUT FROM OTHER SETTLERS.

REED SUGGESTED THE TOWNSPEOPLE APPEASE THE CREATURE

BY PERFORMING ALGONQUIAN RITUALS AS AN OFFERING TO THE SPIRIT.

SO, WITHOUT ANY KNOWLEDGE OF THE ALGONQUIAN PEOPLE

OR THEIR RELIGION,

THEY BLINDLY ENGAGED IN RITUALS

THAT THEY INVENTED FROM SECONDHAND ACCOUNTS.

AT FIRST, THEY WOULD COLLECT OFFERINGS OF FOOD AND WINE,

IF THEY WANTED BIGGER CROPS, THEY'D MAKE A SACRIFICE.

Greenbaum: OVER TIME, REED AND HIS FOLLOWERS MADE BIGGER

AND BIGGER OFFERINGS.

THAT DEMARCATE THE EDGE OF THE WOODS.

THEY ACTUALLY DID CAPTURE THE CREATURE AT SOME POINT IN TIME,
