Hello friends, and welcome to another Wickedly Shocking and Completely Untrue. As always, I’m JennyB, your ghost host with the most.

This week’s segment focuses on the tragic life of Ryan Kuhn, a mentally ill sexual predator and murderer, son of a prostitute, savage beast, and the sign of Hell’s winter.

For a glimpse inside the life of a brutal killer, read on and find out how Ryan Kuhn became the Jackal, the eleventh ghost featured in The Black Zodiac from the 2001 remake of Thir13en Ghosts.

The Birth of a Monster.

Sometime during the year 1887, Ryan Kuhn was born to a prostitute. Ryan’s father was never part of his life, leaving Ryan to be raised by his single mother.

Being raised by a prostitute introduced Ryan to the world of prostitution. His mother would leave Ryan home alone while she worked.

However, Ryan never stayed home; he would sneak out and secretly follow his mother wherever she went.

After years of witnessing how the pimps and the Johns would treat the prostitutes and get away with it distorted Ryan’s view of humanity.
