Old Timey Crimey #30: The Croglin Grange Vampire - “Keep the Shutters Closed”

October 11, 2019

We're continuing our October Spooky Crimes series with the Croglin Grange Vampire. He knows where you live, and he's at your window. Scratching, screeching, screeeeee. Remember: lunatics don't escape every day. OR DO THEY? Scott has a theory that will intrigue the hell out of you. 

And along the way: how men write women, the return of British pub names, and a beer that could have been so much more.
