Just east of the sun-drenched beaches of Rio de Janeiro, in the city of Niterói, sits the windswept bank of Vintém Hill. It is here on this hillside that Brazilian authorities would discover the bodies of two tv technicians at the center of one of the most enigmatic and enduring mysteries in South American history. Were these two paranormal-obsessed engineers duped into an overdose and robbery, or did they truly make contact with entities from beyond? Either way, this case has far more questions than answers and we’re doing our best to correct the scales.
