A friend from my hometown in Pennsylvania called me on the phone yesterday. She said that a man had been arrested for allegedly murdering and skinning multiple women in Tyler State Park. He was found hiding out in the woods in our small rural county outside of the city. I was shocked to say the least. I would almost expect this kind of crazy from the city, but out in Bucks County, something this dark was out of the ordinary. Outsiders were quick to say it was to be expected: the psycho serial killer hiding out deep in the woods where he could prey on unsuspecting hikers and nature enthusiasts. But the locals know better.
The newspapers are saying that he was recruiting members to join his cult. Even worse, although the man is in custody, police have yet been able to truly identify him. They said when they asked what his name was he’d only give one answer: Mr. Skinn.
