Episode #93: Unsolved Mysteries – “February 22, 1989″
Release Date: October 31, 2017
Patrick and Kat face one of their biggest childhood fears head on and discuss a season one episode of Unsolved Mysteries. You know, the wildly popular series that was hosted by the legendary Robert Stack from 1987 to 2002 and then haphazardly resurrected in 2008 with Dennis Farina filling in for Mr. Stack. Each week Stack’s frightful tone delivered a cautionary message to the two of us who believed that around every corner was a murderer or Bigfoot… or an alien!
The first story is focused around a still-to-this-day unsolved bank robbery where the bandits dug beneath the streets of Hollywood to make off with large sums of cash (or possibly floppy disks with government secrets). Think of it as a real life Ocean’s Eleven, but instead of George Clooney we get a shaggy haired man trying to break into the late-80s Hollywood scene .
The second mystery focuses around two individuals who nearly died and experienced a strange journey through a dark mystical tunnel towards a welcoming light. What exactly is a Near Death Experience? And, is there really something on the other side of this life?
Then, the final tale involves the murder of a middle aged man from Ohio, which is a real brain scratcher. Was it drug dealers, a crime of passion… or a mob hit?
Plus, Patrick and Kat quickly revisit the Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding scandal of the early 90s. And which famous rapper took home the Grammy Award for the first time hip-hop music was included as a genre in the awards ceremony.
