"...we should pass over all biographies of 'the good and the great,' while we search carefully the slight records of wretches who died in prison, in Bedlam, or upon the gallows."

Newspaper Clipping of the Day

Today's creepy little tale comes to us from Xenia, Ohio in October of 1972.  My humble little blog has somehow become Grand Central Station for Weird Blood Sightings, and I for one am becoming a bit unnerved by that.

As was the case with the similar incidents I have recorded, the details are both extremely simple and completely mystifying.  A certain Bobbie C. Miller, of 1411 N. Fairfield Road, woke up one morning to find a trail of blood in the house leading from the kitchen, up the staircase, and into the second-floor bathroom. No blood was found outside the house, and there were no signs of a struggle or any forcible entry into the residence.  Miller heard no unusual sounds during the night.  The newspaper report about the mystery said that officers took samples of the "very dark" blood for analysis to see if it was from an animal or a human. The brief article closed by saying that no one knew if this was "a prank" or foul play of some sort, but "deputies were continuing to investigate today."

I have yet to find any follow-up stories about this incident, which may imply that the gruesome puzzle was never solved.
