In Search of the Demon Anake-Histh
Its a historical recorded fact that in the
late 1940s and 1950s dashing Johnny
McAuliffe was the criminal mastermind
behind many of Ontario's bank robberies.
Then in 1951 he pulled one last heist and
robbed the Imperial Bank in Langton.He
made off with $60,000 in silver coin and raced
into the dark woods of Houghton Twp.Seven
days later,after a fruitless manhunt for the
bank robber,local police were startled when
a dishevilled Johnny staggered into the
Kinglake station,obviously driven insane by
something which had driven his glossy
black hair white within a week.Locals say
Johnny had stumbled upon the lair of a
giant massassuaga rattler the natives refer
in hushed tones to as Anake-Histh.
The "In Search of"team goes to Kinglake in
search of this terrifying venomous beast .
