The Mitchell Massacre

On a seemingly quiet summer day, the William S. Mitchell mysteriously broke free of its moorings and wreaked havoc for miles down the river. Although no one was thought to be aboard at the time, the boat's eventual demise revealed a much different story.

Upon entering the ship after its erratic journey, search team members would be sickened by the sinister macabre in front of them. What they found was not only that there were people aboard but that their bodies had been tortured and mangled to an unimaginable degree.
