Devil's IslandAired on Nov 04, 2009

It was reputed to be escape proof; only three men have ever managed to get off the island. They left in 1962 and have never been found. MysteryQuest investigates to determine whether they could have survived the icy waters of San Francisco Bay.

In one of the earliest documented serial murder cases, five prostitutes in the Whitechapel district of London were found brutally murdered with throats slashed and bodies mutilated.

MysteryQuest’s team of experts heads to London to follow these leads and examine the evidence first hand.
