The Mad Gasser
a Phantom “Anesthetic Prowler,”
A “Mad Anesthetist,”
A “Mad Gasser”
threatened the City of Mattoon, Illinois.
Police increased nighttime patrols,
in an attempt to catch the gasser.
Citizens began to keep nightly watch.
The City brought in State and
Federal authorities to assist in the case.
However, no law enforcement and
vigilantes could catch the phantom gasser.
The question remains: was the gasser real,
as his or her victims believed,
or was the gasser the result of mass hysteria?
You be the detective.
Using the newspaper reports, a map of the area,
and research on the subject . . .
YOU decide whether there really was a “Mad Gasser of Mattoon.”
