Nothing gets my heart pumping quite like a scary story and the more authentic it is, the better. I love true-crime, the unexplained, ghosts and UFO sightings.

Year of Fear: Connecticut's Most Bone-Chilling Stories of 2023

Some of the most terrifying stories ever told have come right out of the State of Connecticut. There is something evil that was seeded in our origin story, something we cannot shake. Maybe we are cursed by the choices of our forefathers, or maybe we're living near a gateway to a darker dimension. Whatever the case, Connecticut has many inexplicable and haunting tales. Some of these stories return again and again and others appear from out of nowhere. In 2023, I wrote about plenty of creepy Nutmeg State Nightmares, these are 12 of my favorites.
