Mississippi: Phantom Barber of Pascagoula
In the summer of 1942, strange home invasions plague the town: “The intruder took locks of hair from each of the people whose homes he broke into.” The police arrested a 57-year-old retired chemist named William Dolan. Dolan had been educated in Germany and was allegedly a Nazi sympathizer. He had been charged with trespassing months prior to the first phantom barber attack. Although several witnesses put him at the scenes of different attacks and police had found human hair in his backyard. Dolan was never officially charged as the phantom barber. He denied that he was the intruder and he even managed to pass a lie-detector test. No one has ever figured out who the Phantom Barber really was or why he did what he did.
