Dr. Stantz- During a recent spook check of my Uncle Ron’s Haunted Mill (Sickman’s Mill, Pequea, PA) we’ve seen and heard an odd name and we can’t find reference to it in our archives. At first we heard it whispered on tapes during our overnight recording sessions, and then we saw this message written in what appears to be blood on one of the walls in the mill:
Behold the dark power of BACCARDIO. All you miserable fleshbags will bow before the BACCARDIO, for I am the King of Pain. And when The Sixth Seal is opened BACCARDIO will be the one to lead The Four Horsemen to their victory. The realm of man’s time draws nigh and on the eve of the hallowed night, mortals will know only my wrath. <=red added for effect
Any help would be nice.
Thanks in advance.

BACCARDIO The BLOODTHIRSTY
BORN: 1066 DIED: ?
Baccardio was a wizard from the Stoke on Trent region of England. He was an advisor to the corrupt Royal Governor, the overweight Knight- Templar, Lord Corpulous. Baccardio a former Warrior Priest himself, was said to be obsessed with the Book of Revelations and the apocalypse . His experiments with sacrificing prisoners to create an army in the name of the Fallen Angel Satan earned him the popular name Baccardio the Bloodthirsty.
When Pope Urban II declared the start of the Crusades in 1095 Baccardio and Corpulous raised and army lead by their personal Guardsmen. This 4 member Holy death squad, became known as the 4 horsemen due to atrocities they preformed not only to the Muslims, but to Christian settlements as well. The followed the mystical radical monk Peter the Hermit to the castle Xerigordon. They we ambushed by the Muslim/Turkish ruler Kilij Arslan I, and all were killed, except Baccardio and Corpulous were captured by a Christian strike team sent by the Pope to stop them. They were returned to Vatican City where the Pope had them crucified. With Baccardio’s last breath he cursed the Pope and Christianity by saying,“Behold the dark power of BACCARDIO. All you miserable flesh bags will bow before the BACCARDIO, for I am the King of Pain. And when The Sixth Seal is opened BACCARDIO will be the one to lead the The Four Horsemen to their victory. The realm of man’s time draws nigh and on the eve of the hallowed night, mortals will know only my wrath.” Then there was a brilliant flash of lightning that struck the iron cross Baccardio was strapped to and he was no more. Baccardio was dead or was he?
In 1735 a similar incident took place leading up to All Hallows Eve, along the shores of the royal colony of New Jersey. A Man called Doctor Bloodthirsty by the local Lenni Lenape Native American tribe, was abducting and experimenting on members of the tribe. The crisis was averted when a pirate raiding party of Long Chops McPheen stormed Bloodthirsty’s fortress. The raiding pirates and Bloodthirsty’s disciples were all killed, Leaving few alive to tell the story.
Rich: JerZey Ghostbu…er…Ghostbusters New Jersey: North. We’re ready to believe you. Rich Roy speaking.
Bill: Rich did ya read Ray’s reply on BACCARDIO?
Rich: I don’t know, but suffice to say, we’re in trouble.
Bill: Big time! Where do you think we go from here?
Rich: I don’t know man, <pause> can we even stop it?
Bill: We don’t have a choice. Nobody else can!
6.25.2004 – We have uncovered an oil painting of Doctor Bloodthirsty (possibly BACCARDIO) from a museum around Neptune, NJ. Dr. Bloodthirsty, was said to practice surgery (unnecessary, of course) on local Native Americans. Dave ran the photo he took through the spectral analyzer, then he cleaned the image using Photoshop, so we might see what we’re up against.
