Join local historian and storyteller James Mann as he recounts the murders, planned disappearances and strange happenings in Tree Town. Travel to the early twentieth century when men dressed as women to bait and trap serial fondler "Jack the Hugger." Sense the fear permeating the city after nurse Pauline Campbell was murdered on her doorstep and the subsequent befuddlement after the arrest of her seemingly well-behaved teenage attackers (one of whom went on to author children's books). Follow the men of the University of Michigan as they stage the panty raid that set the trend, and discover why foreign exchange student Cheng Lim hid in a church attic for four years.
