Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 287 Grand Tower UFO with Micheal Huntington and Joe Tury

May 06, 03:00 AM

This week, we head to Illinois to uncover the strange history of the Mississippi river town, Grand Tower. Once called the unluckiest town in America by Time Magazine, Grand Tower seems to be window to high strangeness. 

Taking for us a trip around this intriguing town are filmaker Joe Tury and fortean investigator, Michael Huntington. We look at the key 1973 UFO sighting, strange events, a bloody history of massacres, weird lights and strange creatures.

Their film's kickstarter and trailer, Grand Tower UFO can be found here:
