Murder and Mayhem in Houston Banner

Glenwood Cemetery’s “Avenging Angel.” The Candy Man. These aren’t characters from horror stories. They’re tales based on true events in Houston.

It’s a Halloween-themed Houston Matters, as we learn more about some of Houston’s darkest history. We also revisit a museum that takes a more educational approach to what many would consider a taboo topic —funerals.

Then, whether it’s a good horror story or a scary movie, why are we seeking out things that frighten us? A psychologist explains.

Also this hour: a federal judge dismisses a civil rights lawsuit, and the World Health Organization says processed meats — including bacon — can increase your risk of cancer. We discuss The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of the week’s news.

And: Houston Matters’ producer Michael Hagerty talks with one Houston couple about the ins and outs of running a professional haunted house.
