  • Things Aren’t What They Seem – Season 2 Episode 16
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript “Things aren’t what they seem.” I’ve had a few days to let these words sink in, and things feel extremely different now.  The events at the church all happened so quickly.  I didn’t have a chance to really hash things out in my mind at the moment, but so many things seemed wrong with how all of that played out.  I feel numb.  My thoughts have been preoccupied by the agony that Malcolm went through as I cut into his chest, but even more so, the fact that I didn’t even hesitate, despite the pleading …
  • Bait – Season 2 Episode 15
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript When I was a kid, and probably more so as a young adult, I’d always wanted to see evidence of a ghost – a full bodied apparition…or any one of America’s favorite cryptids like Bigfoot or maybe the Mothman…I was obsessed with horror movies and basically anything that had to do with the paranormal.   I think when I first discovered these boxes of documents – what we now refer to as the storage papers – I thought it was a chance to feel that again…that same wonderment with the unknown I’m sure as any of …
  • The Meeting – Season 2 Episode 14
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript The last few days have seemed like weeks, and there has been a flurry of events taking place.  For many reasons, whether it be lack of time, permission, or authority, I was not able to capture all of the events I wanted to, but I wanted to share a selection of notes I did take. Friday, August 14, 2020 I’m on my way out of the house.  Just a couple of days ago, I received an invitation from Ron to meet tonight at a church near old-town San Diego.  Up until now, talking about these …
  • A Nightmare on Redwood Avenue – Season 2 Episode 13
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript This week’s document is a nearly empty black and white composition notebook – only the first twenty or so pages have any writing in them at all. There’s nothing inside to indicate its purpose or who it belongs to and when I first read it I assumed it was just a creative writing exercise from a college student…or maybe I had just hoped that. If it had been just that, someone’s homework, it wouldn’t have been in that storage unit at all. While much about Ron remains a mystery, through examining these documents I’d like …
  • Brianne Scanlon – Season 2 Episode 12
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript In today’s episode, I’ll be reviewing some of Ron Hammond’s notes from a client meeting with Brianne Scanlon.  The contents of these notes, in my mind, warranted a direct conversation with Ron for a few reasons, but I’ll get to that later.  Ron’s notes from home visitation of Brianne Scanlon, February 9, 2016. Brianne Scanlon called me Monday (yesterday) night asking to speak with me first thing in the morning.  She didn’t want to come into the office, and said it was easier to show me what she needed to show me from her own …
  • Conspiracy Anonymous – Season 2 Episode 11
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript If you look at the history of the evolution of man, we’ve only really had exponential growth within the last hundred years or so.  From the time we accomplished flight in 1903 for just a few seconds time to putting a man on the moon in 1969, technology has helped us progress at a rate that has been previously unfathomable.  The computing power we carry in our pockets on our mobile devices far outweigh that which took up entire rooms at the Kennedy Space Center during the moon landing.  Most believe we’ve just come far …
  • The Cold in the Cabinet – Season 2 Episode 10
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript We are always haunted by our past, whether by nature or nurture we are the consequence of our ancestors. Each one of us is part of a long line of teachings and genetic code, being passed down from generation to generation. Criminals and heroes, saints and murderers; we carry them in our blood. Who they were makes us who we are. Yet this past is never fully known to us. Every family has its secrets, which begs the question: can we ever truly know where we come from? Today’s episode comes in the form of …
  • The Overnight – Season 2 Episode 9
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript One of the top fears people have is being alone. Another is meeting new people. Two seemingly opposite fears that can come together and create some sort of uber-fear. One such job where with these two fears conjoin is the hospitality industry. The overnight shift. One person left alone to take care of dozens of strangers. What could possibly go wrong? Statement of Sandra R. Cantry to the Stone Park Police Department (SPPD) May 23, 1998 I worked at the Homecoming Inn & Suites. I was the night shift employee. Four nights a week I …
  • The Dog in the Corner – Season 2 Episode 8
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript This paper is noted that it’s a transcription from an interview with a Jessie P., dated June 28, 2015. It doesn’t state who was conducting the interview or why and wasn’t attached to anything else to give anymore context, but one of the details sounded familiar. Then again, maybe I’ve been reading these papers too much and am starting to see connections where none exist. I came home Thursday to find my fourteen year old pit bull, Lucy, had died. I’d raised her from a puppy, picking her from a rescue when she started licking …
  • Projekt Hydra – Season 2 Episode 7
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript I’ve been doing some more searching through several boxes of documents in the Papers, looking for anything mentioning Project Hydra.  The only mention I could previously recall from Season 1’s episode is from episode 6, the Magician’s Apprentice.  Remember the CIA program with various levels of psychical abilities?   And then recently, I received an email from a listener of the show who had a somewhat late, yet hostile response to Episode 6.  At first, I thought I was just getting trolled. Podcasters often joke about knowing you’ve made it as a podcaster when you have …
  • The Window Licker – Season 2 Episode 6
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript This week I wanted to share something I came across that I found interesting, if not a bit concerning – something that seemed a bit off – less organized than some of the other documents.  Most of the pages are faded and somewhat damaged photo-copies of notebook paper, bent around the corners and segregated by lines where they were likely once folded, and attached is a newspaper clipping detailing a missing girl. There’s also an obituary and an unfinished letter from who I believe to be Ron addressing a Mr. Brian Pierce, but I’ll talk …
  • Sine Nomine – Season 2 Episode 5
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript If you’ve been listening to The Storage Papers podcast at all, you’ll notice I frequently ask for listener comments, feedback, and for additional information if a listener happens to be aware of any corroborating information, or anything that can provide any context to the topic at hand.  Well, I believe I’ve received some communication from someone who can offer just that. I recently received a direct message on Twitter from a user going by the name Sine Nomine, which in Latin means, “without a name” or “nameless”.  His or her Twitter Handle is @4thTrumpet, with …
  • The Duct Tape Man – Season 2 Episode 4
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript For this week’s episode I’ve found a few different documents that were attached together with a paperclip and, although there’s a variety in the types of documents, it soon became obvious why they were grouped together. I’ll read all the papers in the order they were paperclipped. The first paper is just a cutout from a newspaper. I’m not sure which newspaper exactly since it’s just a small clipping of a single column, but here it is. Police responded to several calls from the Huntington Apartments Thursday night reporting multiple gunshots heard on the second …
  • Subject 22-14 – Season 2 Episode 3
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript Thank you for tuning in to the Storage Papers. I just want to apologize in advance if this week’s episode is a bit…off-kilter. I haven’t had much sleep in the past few days – for obvious reasons – and I have to admit that I’m also not really sure where to start. Two days ago I woke up to a box on my doorstep. I can’t be sure what time it arrived, but if it weren’t for the labeling from the mail carrier I might’ve thought the sender had just placed it on my doorstep …
  • Cocoons – Season 2 Episode 2
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript We’ve all seen the signs: no trespassing, keep out, warning.  Most of us have ignored these signs at one point or another.  We assume they’re erected for the purpose of ownership, as in “stay off my property”.  I remember hanging out in a cemetery in high school after dark, and I recently checked out the old Questhaven property locally here by where I live.  If you haven’t heard of it, you should do a quick internet search, but that’s beside the point of today’s witness statement.  The point is, perhaps we shouldn’t make assumptions about …
  • Consensus Ad Idem – Season 2 Episode 1
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript Welcome back to the Storage Papers.  I’m pleased to report I’m still alive and was not murdered in a dark alley behind a seedy bar.  And while I definitely have some more interesting documents I’ve found in the storage papers, I’ve also been able to make some progress in connecting some dots, so to speak.  I’m starting Season 2 off not by sharing any documents I’ve found within the Storage Papers, but with an opportunity to tell you about this meeting I finally had with Ron Hammond.   It went mostly how I expected it to, …

  • The Divine Acolytes – Season 1 Episode 11
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript Letter from Brianne Scanlon to Ron Hammond, Post-dated Thursday, March 19, 2019 Detective Anderson gave me your contact information and said you could help.  I think my brother, Ben and I may be in danger, and it might be my fault.  He just told me about this guy who came to his house last week with a really big grin.  Well, I know who he is and why he’s coming after Ben.  At least, I know who he used to be. His name is Malcolm Foye, and I was actually dating him for about 4 …
  • Original Beast – Season 1 Episode 10
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript You’re listening to The Storage Papers.  Episode 10, Original Beast: Today’s statement comes in the form of a Psychiatrist’s notes from several sessions with one of his patients.  The notes speak for themselves, so let’s not delay in getting right to it. Summary of clinical notes of Dr. William Talbert regarding Maxwell Stannard, Thursday, October 16, 1986: Mr. Stannard informed me that today’s session, his 5th with me, would be his last.  It is apparent that he possesses an overwhelming guilt which serves motivate his actions.  I am of the opinion after these sessions that …
  • The Grinner – Season 1 Episode 9
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript You’re listening to The Storage Papers.  Episode 9: The Grinner If you listened to the previous episode, The Lady in the Window, and made it to the very end, you would have heard a brief voice message that I’ll replay here now. [voice message] I can’t help but to proceed with caution, as I believe I am not somehow personally wrapped up in something larger at play here.  If you don’t already know, I work two jobs in my personal life, and this podcast is something I do in my limited spare time.  In light …
  • The Lady in the Window – Season 1 Episode 8
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript Did you know that some people don’t feel frightened of ghosts or spirits?  Some claim to have only had positive experiences, believe it or not.  There’s a theory indicating that any time a person experiences extremely strong emotions, that some kind of energy from that person is deposited in a physical space.  Quite often that emotion turns out to be something negative like fear, sadness, or remorse.  Usually it’s due to some kind of trauma, and may explain why some people claim they feel something “negative” or “oppressed” when they walk into an unfamiliar room.  …
  • Shealynn – Season 1 Episode 7
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript As a child growing up in the 80’s, urban legends, ghost stories, and tales of folklore were a popular way to pass the time by the campfire.  I remember various versions of the story of Bloody Mary, and how to summon her.  We would dare each other to stand in front of a mirror with the lights out and chant her name, Bloody Mary, three times.  This was supposed to conjure the spirit of a girl named Mary who had been murdered in the local area, allowing you to see her manifest behind you in …
  • The Magician’s Apprentice – Season 1 Episode 6
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript You’re listening to The Storage Papers.  Episode 6: The Magician’s Apprentice What is it about magic tricks that mystifies us?  We all know that they’re primarily optical illusions or some kind of deception, and yet we watch, amazed, most likely because someone has been able to fool us without us knowing exactly how.  I would argue that the majority of people don’t believe actual magic is real – that someone can possess unique knowledge or that physical objects can be moved with the mind.  But then again, if you look at stories within most religions, …
  • Ice Cream Man – Season 1 Episode 5
    Episode Transcript You’re listening to The Storage Papers.  Episode 5: Ice Cream Man I remember growing up in the 80’s and playing outside all day during the summers.  The neighborhood kids might be doing different things in a number of different groups down the street, but one thing was certain when we heard that familiar tune projecting from around the corner or down the road.  We would all experience that Pavlovian watering of the mouth, and we dropped what we were doing to run and ask our parents for spare change as if life or death depended on it.   If …
  • The Cat Lady – Season 1 Episode 4
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript There’s always that one house in everyone’s neighborhood that, for some unknown reason, creeps everyone out.  You may not ever really know why, but in some cases, those who pay attention, may learn a few things about why. Today’s witness statement comes from a woman who lived next door to one of these homes.  She apparently didn’t feel comfortable going to police according to these notes, and she actually lives very close to me.  After reading this, I thought to myself “I really do need to be more aware of my surroundings”.  Unlike living on …
  • Old Timer – Season 1 Episode 3
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript Some believe time is a construct we created in an attempt to compartmentalize our understanding of the universe.  If this is true, and the concept of time doesn’t really exist, then it would theoretically be possible to manipulate it, given the right tools.  Those people would say we just don’t have the knowledge or understanding today.  But if we acquired those tools, it begs the question what we would do… if we could get rid of the linear concept of time we have been so accustomed to perceiving?  Skeptics would say you’re talking science-fiction, and …
  • A Conspicuous Suspect – Season 1 Episode 2
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript You’re listening to The Storage Papers.  Episode 2: A Conspicuous Suspect Law enforcement has to be one of the toughest jobs imaginable, especially in today’s world where there have been so many issues related to racial tension, and the growing concerns of fair treatment by the police.  A police officer must find that delicate balance between maintaining an element of personal safety, and protecting the public.   As I’ve begun digging into these files, I realize now more than ever what kinds of things are intentionally placed into police reports, and what information remains hidden, regardless …
  • Baby Cries – Season 1 Episode 1
    Listen on YouTube Episode Transcript You’re listening to The Storage Papers.  Episode 1: Baby Cries There’s something inside us that compels us to respond when we hear a baby crying.  A wide range of feelings may affect us when we hear it, from sympathy to anxiety, and even frustration and helplessness- especially if you’re a parent who can’t seem to figure out how to get the crying to stop.  Crying is the universal queue for infants to communicate they have a need, a need which they themselves are unable to fulfill.  The only thing we all know initially is that …
