Episode 31: Black Wedding


“One need not be a Chamber—to be Haunted” – Emily Dickinson

On April 22, 1930, a beautiful dark haired woman walked into a hospital in Key West Florida. She encountered a man who knew her the moment he saw her. This was his soulmate. The woman of his dreams.

Some say this is a love story. But in truth, it’s one of the most haunting reminders that desire can drive you to obsession and self destruction.

This is the ghoulish story of Carl Von Cosel and his obsession…Elena Hoyos.
