Weekend 2 Cents: Cellmate From Hell -- Joshua Cutchin Interview on Arcane Radio -- Missing in San Francisco

Cellmate From Hell

“I once had a neighbor that was a retired bank robber. He'd spent a lot of time in prison over the years. Often in high security jails where he was forced to wear what were known as patches, which meant high viz clothing to try and prevent escape. He told me this story one night and it's always stayed with me.

On one of his many spells spent at her majesty's pleasure in the 70's his cell mate was a practicing satanist. They got talking about his beliefs one night and the satanist said he wanted to show my neighbor something. He said I'm going to raise something from the other side, but don't stare at it, stay still, take a look for a second or two, then look away. He drew something in chalk on the cell floor, chanted something and built a small fire with a few matches. My friend said he saw a small figure composed of smoke come from the fire, move around the floor for a few seconds as if it had weight/mass then dissipate. It totally freaked him out and he wasn't a man that would scare easily. He said he trod carefully around his cell mate from then on and was quite relieved when his sentence came to an end.”

Missing in San Francisco

Urban legend has it that people often go missing in San Francisco.

Based on police records, this purported myth doesn't entirely come out of thin air.

The San Francisco Police Department's Missing Persons Unit keeps track of individuals who mysteriously vanish in the city. There are currently 988 open cases going back as far as 1976, according to Sgt. Andrea Creed, one of two investigators within the unit.

"I believe we do have a lot of people who go missing here," Creed said.

Most of the open cases involve adult males; only 23 percent are juveniles and 36 percent are female. Read more at Missing in SF: Police still investigating about 1,000 open missing persons cases


Army Vet Recalls Silver Disk Sighting

“I saw a silver disk UFO back in a late Summer night in 1981 while working with a five man team of Field Artillery Forward Observers adjusting illumination rounds for a 109 MM Battery and it's Fire Direction Center. After the team also observed it, the UFO craft's crew also knew that we were observing it. Then it took off Mach 10+, stopped on a dime and then did a 90 degree right turn and disappeared like into another dimension maybe a black hole; God only knows. Well if you ever served in the military or as a contractor with new equipment or ammunition I’d like to know because it seems that I'm not the only one having observed one. We decided not to tell our Battalion LTC Commander in fear we would ridiculed and be blacked ball in our career. Sincerely, M. Rivera USARMY FA, Retired.”
