The Bizarre Belcher Island Killings
Author and researcher Lawrence Millman joined George Knapp in the first half of Sunday’s show to discuss a bizarre story of faith gone horribly wrong in the frozen north of Canada. In his research, he happened on history of the Belcher Islands, which is a remote area on Canada’s Hudson Bay. Millman said the indigenous people of the area were essentially isolated until 1916, when a mining engineer named Robert Flaherty was shipwrecked and spent a winter in the Islands. He produced the famous documentary Nanook of the North, which showed the lives of the native people in a manner that was somewhat fictionalized. In 1941, a major meteor shower occurred. The starving and desperate people took this as a sign and began to take Bible passages too literally and the society began to break down, ending in the deaths of nine people. See the full recap here.

Canada is a hot spot for paranormal activity, according to paranormal investigator and medium, Dawn Hunter Clark. In part two on Sunday , she began by telling George about her Catholic upbringing and the rejection of all things paranormal, but that she later visited a Catholic priest who gave her “the permission to move forward” with her passion for research. Clark recalled growing up in a haunted house with lights that stayed on when unplugged, a painting that flew off the wall, and a chilling episode when a voice told her to get out of her room, which later that night was the site of a fire that nearly consumed the home. She also said that the film The Shining frightened her greatly because she identified with the psychic child character and made her realize that others shared her experiences. She thinks that some children “have heightened sensitivities” and are closer to the spiritual world. See the full recap here.
