We’ve heard many stories of “cursed lands''. Usually it’s surrounding a colonizer building on indeginious american land who is then dealt a nasty curse, think Poltergeist. Cursed land stories only continue the misconceptions surrounding what are perceived as “mysterious” cultures like indeginious americans or gypsies. If a piece of land isn’t cursed, can it still harbor evil? Can a location continually be a draw for those that wish others harm? Today, we discuss the cases of Barbara Tucker, Jennifer Tchier, Mindi Thomas, Lila Moler, Stephanie Russell and Alexandria Ison; connecting a serial killer to bodies that have been found on or around a community college in Gresham, Oregon.
