THE UNSOLVED MYSTERY
In 1935, the Institute of Parapsycology at Duke University was the centre of a series of horrendous and haunting murders. Known as the ‘Zener Murders’, the killer would allow the victim one chance to prove their psychic ability was real. If they failed, they would be murdered where they stood. If they proved they were psychic, they would live to see another day.
The murders are still unsolved but one of the only pieces of evidence is now in your possession. Some people thought it was Dr Zener's wife who killed the psychics. During the experiments, Zener and his wife split due to his obsession with his work. Zener's wife thought that if she could destroy his work (the psychics) then they would get back together.
Some believe it was the other members of the United Psychic's Guild who felt as though their organisation had been made a laughing stock. These 10 people were found to NOT have psychic ability whereas they believed theirs was a real ability.
Some thought it was Dr Rhine and during his pursuit to prove psychics weren't real, he in-fact discovered they were. It drove him insane and he killed them.
I guess, we will never know...
