Episode 52 -- "Dead Man Walking" (PODCAST EXCLUSIVE EPISODE)
In 2004, a woman living in Nashville, Tennessee, was sitting up in her bed one night trying to get some homework done for a Bible study class. As she sat there, she started to feel tired and so she decided to call it a night. She bookmarked the page she was one and leaned over to put her Bible on the bed side table, when she suddenly froze. The house was supposed to be empty, her family was out for the night... but now, standing at the foot of her bed was a person, just staring up at her... and this person was dead.
