Episode 128 – The Very Strange Afterlife of Elmer J. McCurdy

While a minor outlaw during his lifetime, the story of Elmer J. McCurdy really begins after his death in 1911. For 60 years, his mortal remains were intentionally, and at times accidentally, displayed for public amusement and profit. Events culminated in 1976 when a TV show thought they had found the perfect prop in an old carnival dark ride. Only to realize what they had discovered was not a recreation of a mummified body – but a corpse! What was it doing there, and how was the mystery solved? We share the shocking and at times almost unbelievable tale of the afterlife of Elmer J. McCurdy in the latest episode of Haunted Talks!
