Descrizione

On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about Kyle's trip down to the coast in Galveston and Cam's camping trip to a dark sky region of northern Texas where he's going to attempt to shoot the Milky Way with his camera. Then, Kyle reads a listener story that was sent to them about a haunted fraternity house. Apparently the house was haunted possibly by the ghost of young girl who was killed in a car wreck as well as strange black mass. Then, Cam brings up some strange sightings of the famous Thunderbird in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

After the break Cam brings up some more sightings of Dogman or Werewolf including the crazy story of the Morbach Monster. There’s a lycan whose allegedly been running around the Wittlich Area of Germany since the early 1810s. This particularly nasty werewolf, known as the Morbach Monster, is worth mentioning because of its notorious origin and rather contemporary sighting.

The legend of the Morbach Monster begins with a soldier named Thomas Johannes Baptist Schwytzer, who had a unique military career. He served in Napolean’s Grande Armee during the commander’s failed attempt to conquer Russia. Schwytzer was there when the Russians abandoned Moscow in 1812 and set fire to the city, ultimately destroying three-quarters of it.  Decimated by battle, disease and starvation, Napolean’s army was effectively in ruin. Sensing defeat and fearing for his life, Schwytzer deserted Napolean and fled back to his home in Alsace.

Schwytzer fell in with a group of Russian deserters who joined him on his journey back to France. Roughly 160 miles north of Alsace, the group came upon the rural German village of Wittlich. Desperately in need of supplies, the men raided a farmhouse and, tragically, murdered the family of farmers. According to the legend, the farmer’s wife, who helplessly watched the slaughter of her husband and sons, placed the following curse on Schwytzer:

‘From now on, at each full moon, you will change into a rapid wolf!’ she cried. Infuriated by her scorn, Schwytzer crushed the woman’s skull but it was too late. His ill-fated attempt to avoid the curse failed.
