In this episode we’re taking a trip to pre-WWII Key West, Florida – a place beyond laws, full of unbelievable characters.

One of these characters is Count Carl von Cosel (born Karl Tanzler), an eccentric x-ray technician that falls head-over-heels in love with a young Latina beauty named Elena Hoyos. Problem is, she has tuberculosis, and in the 1930s this was pretty much a death wish.

However, von Cosel’s obsessive love knows no bounds…even those of death. And the grim discovery Elena’s family and Key West police officials make in the Count’s house 7 years after Elena’s burial will shock the island, the nation, and the world.

Have a care, friends—this one is gonna be a little icky.
