Did you ever see the movie Candyman from 1992? It was inspired by two things: Clive Barker's Forbidden, and the case of Ruthie Mae McCoy. Ruthie lived in Chicago's Community Housing Projects, where the murder rate was so high that the papers didn't even bother reporting on it. What made Ruthie stand out? Well, Ruthie called 911, and said someone was coming in through her bathroom mirror... And it wasn't Candyman!

Get ready to get mad as we discuss this case about poverty, unsafe living conditions, and the unsolved murder of Ruthie Mae McCoy!
