Ahh, the post-Halloween malaise, full of nauseating amounts of discount candy and grey November days. It’s the perfect time to uncover the truth behind the “Real Candy Man”, Ronald Clark O’Bryan, and the urban legend he inspired – that of the boogieman trick-or-treat candy poisoner.
Carrie walks us through this sad, bizarre case, and discovers that no child has ever been hurt or killed by tainted Halloween candy given out by a stranger…but sometimes the biggest monsters are the ones closest to home. The ones whose faces we know. The ones who tuck us in at night.
