00:33

let's get into today's

00:39

[Music]

00:47

story on the afternoon of May 6th 2008 a

00:51

54-year-old man called Ricky Williams

00:53

stood on the River Bank casting out his

00:55

line into the Waters of dismal Creek in

00:57

Western Virginia Ricky was hoping to get

00:59

lucky and catch some trout but he'd been

01:02

out here fishing for 30 minutes so far

01:04

and there were no bites normally Ricky

01:06

wouldn't care because he loved just

01:08

fishing for hours and hours at a time

01:10

but today he and his dog who was right

01:12

with him were really hungry because

01:14

they'd been out in these Woods camping

01:16

for several weeks now and their food

01:18

supply was finally dwindling down to the

01:20

end and so if they didn't catch any fish

01:22

today they might not eat now for context

01:25

where Ricky was fishing dismal Creek

01:27

despite its Bleak name it was actually a

01:29

beautiful secluded spot on top of a

01:31

mountain that was on the Appalachian

01:33

Trail the Appalachian Trail is a very

01:36

famous 2200m long trail that runs up and

01:39

down the east coast of the United States

01:41

and why that is relevant is because

01:43

there's this special code for people

01:45

that hike on the Appalachian Trail and

01:47

the code which all hikers know is

01:50

basically if you come across another

01:52

hiker on the Appalachian Trail it is

01:55

your responsibility to help them if they

01:57

need help and it is their respons

01:59

responsibility to help you if you need

02:01

help so it's this community of hikers

02:04

that are always looking to help each

02:05

other and so Ricky was very aware of

02:07

this code on the Appalachian Trail and

02:10

he was secretly hoping as he cast his

02:11

line over and over again and didn't get

02:13

any bites that a hiker or a group of

02:16

hikers might come by this area and maybe

02:18

they would see him and come down and

02:20

learn that he needed food and they might

02:22

just give him some of their food but

02:24

another half hour passed and no hikers

02:26

came by and still Ricky could not catch

02:29

any f but then suddenly Ricky's dog who

02:32

was right next to him began to whine and

02:34

kind of began shifting around like it

02:35

was sensing a predator in the area or

02:37

something but as Ricky was trying to

02:39

calm his dog down he began to hear a

02:41

voice in the woods right behind him

02:43

somebody was moving towards him and when

02:45

Ricky heard this voice on the one hand

02:47

he was pretty excited because maybe this

02:49

is a hiker who can give him some food

02:51

but on the other hand Ricky couldn't

02:53

help but feel really uneasy now you need

02:55

to understand that Ricky was an older

02:57

guy he was kind of frail and over over

02:59

the past few weeks that he'd been

03:01

camping with his dog you know as his

03:03

food supply had run down he had become

03:05

skinnier and skinnier and skinnier and

03:07

so he really did not pose any sort of

03:10

threat to anybody he's like this weak

03:12

older man now generally speaking the

03:14

Appalachian Trail was a very safe place

03:16

but over the last few decades there had

03:19

actually been several murders that took

03:21

place on the Appalachian Trail and in

03:23

fact one of those killings took place

03:25

less than 2 miles away from where Ricky

03:27

was fishing with his dog and in that

03:30

double homicide a very well-known killer

03:33

named Randall Lee Smith had stabbed and

03:35

shot to death two hikers and so while

03:38

Ricky was really looking for help from

03:40

fellow hikers at the same time he

03:42

couldn't help but feel somewhat

03:43

apprehensive because again Ricky was

03:45

like this small frail guy and Ricky was

03:48

well aware of these murders and he was

03:50

well aware of the fact that he was super

03:51

close to one of the murder sites and so

03:54

Ricky was totally on edge as he's

03:55

listening to this male voice get closer

03:58

and closer and then finally this man in

04:01

his early 30s steps out from the tree

04:03

line and he looks over and he sees Ricky

04:05

and for a second the two men just kind

04:06

of look at each other but then this guy

04:08

just grinned at Ricky and said hey how

04:10

you doing and immediately Ricky felt

04:12

relieved because he could tell just from

04:14

looking at this guy that very likely he

04:16

was not a threat the man introduced

04:18

himself as Scott Johnston and he told

04:20

Ricky he was actually camping in the

04:22

area with a friend of his and they were

04:23

out here fishing just like Ricky and

04:25

Ricky pretty much immediately said oh

04:27

great nice to meet you do you have any

04:29

food for me and Scott was like

04:30

absolutely and he dug into his bag that

04:32

he had with him and he pulled out a

04:33

couple energy bars and a bag of chips

04:35

and he threw them over to Ricky and he

04:37

also gave some fresh bait to Ricky so he

04:39

too could cast out again and for the

04:41

next couple of hours Scott and Ricky

04:43

just stood on the river bank and fished

04:45

together and after a while the trout did

04:47

start biting and they did start catching

04:49

fish so the day kind of turned into a

04:51

great outing for Ricky and it got even

04:53

better because as soon as the men were

04:54

done fishing Scott asked Ricky if he

04:57

wanted to join him and his friend back

04:59

up at the camp site for dinner and

05:01

remember Ricky had no food so this was

05:03

an amazing invitation and he said yes of

05:06

course I'd love to join you so the two

05:07

men packed up their stuff right as the

05:09

sun was going down and then they began

05:11

walking back into the forest where Scott

05:13

had emerged from and as they were

05:15

walking Scott's fishing pole got tangled

05:17

on a low hanging branch and he was

05:19

really struggling to get it out of the

05:21

tree and so finally he just told Ricky

05:23

to you know go on ahead my campsite is

05:25

right up there it's a straight shot just

05:26

go up the hill and you'll see it Ricky

05:29

asked Scott he was sure and Scott said

05:30

no it's totally fine go ahead so Ricky

05:32

said okay and he walked the rest of the

05:34

way up the hill and then when he walked

05:36

out of the tree line into the clearing

05:38

where Scott's campsite was immediately

05:41

what Ricky noticed was this enormous man

05:44

who was like twice the size of Scott and

05:46

so four times the size of Ricky kind of

05:48

hunched over the campfire and this huge

05:51

man who presumably was Scott's friend he

05:54

heard Ricky walk into the circle and

05:56

remember it's nighttime and they're kind

05:58

of in the middle of nowhere and so this

06:00

guy he turns his head around and sees

06:02

this strange man just standing there and

06:04

Scott's nowhere to be found and so this

06:06

guy he grabs a club like a piece of wood

06:08

and he looks at Ricky kind of menacingly

06:10

like what are you doing here and Ricky

06:12

who was so caught off guard by just how

06:14

big this guy was he put his hands up and

06:16

he said I'm so sorry Scott sent me up

06:18

here I don't know if this is the right

06:19

sight I'm sorry but just at that moment

06:22

Scott had finished untangling his

06:24

fishing line and he came out of the tree

06:26

line and he patted Ricky on the back and

06:28

he said oh you've already met my friend

06:29

Shawn and as soon as he said that Shawn

06:32

looked like he basically let his guard

06:34

down you know he put the wood down and

06:35

he stopped glaring directly at Ricky but

06:38

Ricky felt like Shawn was not happy that

06:41

Ricky was in his campsite even though

06:42

clearly Scott is the reason that Ricky

06:44

is in this campsite and so Ricky just

06:46

felt really uncomfortable and at the

06:48

same time Scott is ushering Ricky closer

06:50

to the campfire to take a seat next to

06:52

Shawn you know Sean's a great cook he'll

06:54

cook up this fish for us it's going to

06:56

be great you know take a seat Ricky felt

06:58

kind of annoyed that Scott was really

07:00

forcing him to stay but Ricky didn't

07:02

want to be rude and just kind of

07:03

abruptly leave so he did take a seat

07:05

next to Shawn who definitely was not

07:08

excited to be sitting next to Ricky and

07:09

Ricky just kind of sat there waiting to

07:11

see what would happen next and what

07:13

happened next is Scott walked over to

07:15

Shawn and handed off all the fish that

07:17

he and Ricky had caught so that Shawn

07:19

could begin to prepare them to cook them

07:21

and then as Ricky is still just sitting

07:22

there right next to Shawn Scott walked

07:24

away from the campfire up to his truck

07:27

which was parked right next to Shawn's

07:28

Jeep and Scott turned on the radio and

07:30

began blasting country music and when

07:33

Ricky heard this music he kind of winced

07:35

because to him you know part of the

07:37

reason the outdoors the Appalachian

07:39

Trail you know being out in nature part

07:41

of the reason it was so wonderful was

07:43

for the peace and quiet and so it felt

07:45

kind of like borderline disrespectful to

07:47

be out in the middle of this beautiful

07:48

place blaring country music and so to

07:51

Ricky he just couldn't help but feel

07:53

like there's something off about these

07:55

two guys they just seem really

07:56

disrespectful and kind of pushy and

07:59

maybe aggressive and so Ricky is just

08:01

not happy but again Ricky didn't say

08:04

anything and didn't attempt to leave

08:06

because again he's really hungry and so

08:08

is his dog and he needs to eat that fish

08:11

a moment later Scott walked back from

08:13

the truck and took a seat next to Shawn

08:15

and then he along with Shawn pulled out

08:17

their knives and began deboning the fish

08:20

and as they were doing this Ricky again

08:22

is just kind of sitting there doing

08:23

nothing and so he kind of meagerly asked

08:25

you know hey can you give me a knife and

08:27

I'll clean a fish but Sean and SC kind

08:29

of waved him off and said don't worry we

08:31

got this and so Ricky just continued to

08:33

sit there nervously it's all he could

08:35

watch was the flashing of the light

08:36

bouncing off their blades but eventually

08:39

Scott and Shawn finished deboning all

08:41

the fish and they put their knives away

08:43

and at that point they began cooking the

08:45

fish over the Open Flame and suddenly

08:47

for Ricky it felt like you know the mood

08:49

had shifted a little bit at least now

08:50

the two men were not fiddling around

08:52

with weapons you know it felt kind of

08:54

safe again and so Ricky began making

08:56

some small talk in hopes that would kind

08:58

of you know settle his nerves and so

08:59

Ricky told the two men about how much he

09:01

loved the Appalachian Trail and how he

09:03

came out here all the time for weeks at

09:05

a time with his dog and Ricky would tell

09:07

the men that you know sometimes he felt

09:10

more at home out in the wild than he did

09:12

at home it was almost like being out in

09:14

nature was a religious experience for

09:16

Ricky and he would even tell Sean and

09:18

Scott that sometimes when he was out in

09:20

nature he would meditate and pray and

09:22

even do some chanting like part of a

09:24

ritual I mean he was really trying to be

09:26

in tune with mother nature but as Ricky

09:29

continued to tell Shawn and Scott about

09:31

his personal life he noticed the two men

09:33

were definitely paying attention and

09:35

kind of nodding along at appropriate

09:37

points in the story but at the same time

09:39

Ricky felt like these two men were also

09:41

kind of looking at him like Ricky was

09:43

kind of weird as if they were not

09:45

prepared to come out and say it but

09:47

after hearing all these things about his

09:48

life it was like huh what's going on

09:50

with this guy and so Ricky suddenly felt

09:52

really embarrassed about being so open

09:54

with these two guys who once again just

09:57

seem like they don't quite like him or

09:58

even really want him here but luckily

10:00

right at that moment the fish were done

10:02

and so the men just sat there in silence

10:04

and wolfed down the food by the time

10:06

they finished right about 8:00 p.m. it

10:08

was very dark outside and Ricky at this

10:11

point is just ready to go you know he

10:13

just felt so uneasy here and so after

10:15

putting down his plate and his

10:16

silverware and saying thank you to Shawn

10:17

and Scott for their Hospitality he

10:20

quickly got up and grabbed his dog and

10:21

he began walking into the woods towards

10:23

his campsite but after Ricky and his dog

10:26

had walked maybe 10 or 15 ft away from

10:29

this campsite two things happened in

10:32

Rapid succession number one Ricky

10:34

suddenly stopped and turned around and

10:36

looked back at the campsite and number

10:39

two right as he did this there was this

10:41

enormous bang sound like a small

10:43

explosion that echoed through the

10:50

forest okay so if you're not listening

11:52

video because we're going to play a clip

11:54

from last week's episode of

11:57

runp

12:02

about 30 minutes later and about 4 miles

12:05

away from where Ricky and Shawn and

12:06

Scott had been there were these two

12:08

women who were in their house eating

12:10

dinner when they heard the sudden

12:11

frantic knocking on their front door now

12:14

these women live in a very isolated part

12:16

of the country and so the women were

12:17

very concerned one of them rushed over

12:20

to the phone just to be ready to call

12:21

the police while the other very

12:23

carefully made their way towards the

12:24

front of the house and they kind of

12:26

peered out the window but they couldn't

12:27

see anything outside it was too dark and

12:29

so they went to their door which was

12:30

still getting pounded on by whoever was

12:32

out there and the woman she unlocked the

12:34

door and she opened it just a crack and

12:37

what she saw nearly made her faint there

12:39

was a man standing on her porch who was

12:42

absolutely covered in blood as if he had

12:44

been fully submerged in a tank of blood

12:47

I mean he is all red and the man had his

12:49

hand over his neck and the woman who

12:51

opened the door she looked at him and

12:53

she saw that there was this rhythmic

12:55

pulsing of blood pumping out of his neck

12:58

that was into time with his heart this

13:00

man is clearly bleeding to death and so

13:03

the woman she screamed for The Other

13:04

Woman to please call 911 we have someone

13:07

who's dying here and so she began

13:09

calling 911 and then the man on the

13:11

porch just said please help me and then

13:14

he said something about dismal Creek and

13:16

then he collapsed and this was so

13:18

shocking for the woman who had opened

13:19

the door that she just stood there

13:21

staring having no idea what to do but

13:23

then she happened to look up and she

13:25

noticed there was a jeep that was idling

13:27

out on the road in front of her house

13:29

that she hadn't even registered until

13:30

now and so either this guy got dropped

13:32

off or he drove that jeep but before she

13:35

could even begin to understand what had

13:37

just happened an ambulance and a whole

13:39

bunch of police cars came screaming up

13:41

and parked in front of her house and

13:42

then the Medics got out they rushed up

13:44

and they grabbed the bleeding man and

13:46

they put him in the ambulance and they

13:47

rushed him off meanwhile not far from

13:50

the house police officers were speeding

13:52

towards dismal Creek because when the

13:54

women called 911 they said you know this

13:57

guy who shown up on the porch bleeding

13:59

said something about dmal Creek but they

14:01

had no idea what it was about and so

14:02

instead of trying to wait to figure out

14:04

what was even going on police had

14:06

basically said let's just go to dismal

14:08

Creek and look around and see if we can

14:10

figure out you know why someone would

14:12

leave that area and show up at this

14:14

house covered in blood but as the police

14:17

were making their way up this winding

14:19

Mountain Road they saw a truck bombing
