The Pigman of Northfield

Updated 3 months ago.

In Episode 83, Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger drive up to Northfield, Vermont, with a bucket of slop in search of the infamous Pigman. In 1971, a naked man with the head of a pig terrorized the small town of Northfield in the area of the Devil's Washbowl. Multiple witnesses were rattled by a vision they can't explain, and one claims he was attacked. Could this mysterious man... or creature still be lurking in the woods of Northfield?
