The Gorsock Murder Tour

The Gorsock Murder Tour Pic


DIAGNOSIS: Schizotypal Personality Disorder

CASE HISTORY: In 1973, a mysterious, gruesome, and still unsolved murder occurred in the mansion of Harley Gorsock, noted philanthropist and alleged inventor of the bicycle tire. Then again, in 1976, 1979, 1980, 1983, 1984, 1989, 1990-1996, 1997, 2000, 2002 and probably in 2005, more mysterious, gruesome, and still unsolved murders occurred. The Gorsock Mansion, now inhabited by Miss Ursula Mädchen, has attracted unwanted notoriety as the top American tourist destination for people who would like to see a place where countless mysterious, gruesome, and still unsolved murders have occurred. The tours are not sanctioned by the city or state, nor are they allowed by law, as local and federal police are still searching for evidence. Closed Mondays.
