Cut Off My Feet

"I wanna make sure it goes through on the first whack!"


Meet Paul Morgan, aka "Freck." He wants to do something very out of the ordinary.
"We could make money, chop your feet off with a train over the internet." Luckily, Paul didn't take his friend's advice, but he is going to cut his feet off. For $20, he'll let you watch him do it "live" on the internet.


"The feet have to come off anyway to have the amputation. I'm going to take my feet off this way to raise the money I need to get the prosthetics."

Yes, you heard right. Paul is going to chop his feet with a homemade guillotine. Paul injured his legs in a car crash back in 1986. He can walk but barely. He says his insurance company won't pay for an operation. That's why he's selling internet subscription for $20, so people can watch him amputate his feet.
"They regard this as unnecessary surgery, because even though my feet and my lower legs are total debilitated, they're not a danger to my health."

Paul says he needs to raise over $100,000 to pay for the prosthetics and future surgeries. You have to admit, Paul seems a little crazy. Especially since the Attorney General's office offered to get him some help. "They offered a surgeon in Jackson, who would cut off my legs for free. Now, they didn't offer any kind of rehab or amputation or prosthetics." Paul says he needs extra money for post-surgery procedures.

The AG's office could stop Paul's plans. Officials refused to comment on camera, but they told us Paul might be violating the state's Mayhem Statute. The one passage that pertains to Paul: "Mutilating or destroying a limb." If convicted, a person could face jail time. The law aside, what about the safety issue?
Paul says he'll receive a sedative and wear tourniquet on his legs, "I've already secured the efforts of EMT's locally as well as around the country who will be there on site." Paul will to go the hospital immediately after the cut.

As morbid as it sounds, Paul is looking forward to dropping the blade.
"To me, this is going to be much more of a celebration. People say, 'you seem too much excited.' For me, it's going to be a celebration. This is beginning of a whole new way of life for me." Paul is scheduled to chop off his feet on November 30th. If he doesn't raise enough money, he says he'll give his voyeuristic fan club members a rebate.

This just in, it looks like Paul's fans will have to wait another month to see Paul do "his duty." Because of construction and web delays, the event is now scheduled for January 5 at an undisclosed location on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Unexplained Cases | Historic & Haunted: Hotel San Carlos

Written by:  Darren Dedo Case Filed: 10/31/21 Executive Producer:  Rick Garner   The Hotel San Carlos in downtown Phoenix is historic and many say this grand old place is haunted. It opened in 1928 -- before it was the location of Phoenix’s first school. Even before that, ruins of an ancient Hohokam Village. A little cool factoid: The hotel can be briefly seen in Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 film Psycho opening shot, as the camera pans the then-skyline of downtown Phoenix. Over the years the San Carlos has hosted political leaders and movie stars like Marilyn Monroe and Spencer Tracy. But, the most famous guest or I should say ghost -- was 22-year-old Leone Jensen. The story goes that Jensen checked into room 720, and later jumped to her death from the top of the San Carlos. She was supposedly distraught about her abusive boyfriend, who was a bellboy at a nearby hotel. Some say she was pregnant and was pushed to her death. The one thing most people agree on when it comes to Leone,

Written by:  Jim Birchall Case Filed: 6/11/22 Executive Producer:  Rick Garner   Sasquatch, Yeti, Yeren, Yowie, and Swamp Ape…all names which essentially identify a legendary cryptid known across the world - Bigfoot. He goes by another name here in New Zealand. And today I am at the foot of the __ on a very inclement day in New Zealand. I’m here with paranormal investigator and researcher Marc Coppell and we’re hopefully going to have some sightings or capture some audio of New Zealand’s own bigfoot, known as the Moehau Man. Reports of the Moehau Man date back over 120 years. Mark has done extensive research and interviewed over two dozen witnesses in New Zealand who have had their own sightings and strange encounters with this cryptid. I journey into the New Zealnd bush with paranormal investigator Marc Coppell. “In the New Zealand bush, I’ve heard a strange whooping sound. Some of it seems to respond to me. Now, the real weird stuff that I'm picking up are voices that mimic wha
