Since 1997 young men have been disappearing for periods of time and then turning up in bodies of water. Upon first glance it’s easy to brush these off as accidents, young men drinking too much and slipping or falling to their deaths: sad but not unheard of. It was in 2008 that Kevin Gannon, Anthony Duarte, Mike Donovan and Dr. Lee Gilbertson presented a theory to the world: What if these cases aren’t accidents at all? What if there is some kind of gang spread across the nation, picking these guys off 1 by 1. Insert the name of the case, The Smiley Face Killers.

It's an Ash-centric morbid.


Hello there.


We also have a windstorm.


I think I didn't know if you were going to say anything about it, but like as soon as I was like,


this is morbid, the one was like, what was it like?


Okay, cool. Thank you, I just wanted to make sure.


Yeah, I just happened to gaze out the window, as I said, like, hello.


And then I was like, oh, it's an actual windstorm outside.


Yeah, like there's trees bending over.
