HAPPY HALLOWEEN WEIRDOS! Here we are with the last creepy fact as we finally reached Halloween, the coolest day of the year. I really hope you’ve enjoyed this countdown as much as I loved writing all these creepy facts.
The Brandlands became suspicious since very few people knew they even had a safe in their basement. For this reason, Marvin was still convinced that a friend or family member was simply playing a Halloween trick on them. When the masked man led the Brandlands through the kitchen toward the basement, Marvin made a grab for the gun. The intruder wound up shooting Marvin in the throat before fleeing the house and inexplicably leaving his mask behind. Ethel was so traumatized by her husband’s death that she died only a few months later. Over the years, an acquaintance of the Brandland family had allegedly bragged about committing the murder, so DNA testing was performed on the mask. However, there wasn’t enough usable material for an adequate test, so there is still no evidence to charge this suspect and Marvin Brandland’s murder officially remains unsolved.
So, have a nice night peeps! Here a recap of the previous facts, in case you might have missed one:
