The Vampire Cult Murders //

In November of 1996, Richard and Ruth Wendorf were brutally murdered in their home in Eustis, FL. Police quicky determine a likely suspect: a 16-year-old from Kentucky named Rod Ferrell, who claims he is a 500-year-old vampire.

Johnny Cash sitting in “Starkville City Jail” and Charles Neville getting gas in Florida. Stories about musicians in the 50s & 60s either become a celebrated part of their legacy or a cautionary tale of trying to make music in the Jim Crow South.
