Nobody could understand why the nannies continued to go missing. The nannies came with sterling references, the children seemed more than happy to welcome them into the home and the parents were genuinely mystified. After the 13th disappearance, the marshal noticed the children were much less committed to the crying and grieving than they were with the other losses.

A closer look at the series of mourning photos showed something alarming....the twins looked increasingly severe, perhaps guilty and most definitely evil. As questioning began in earnest, the marshal suddenly disappeared as well. Before the village could gather their pitchforks and form an angry mob, the twins and their parents were long gone, their mansion a smoldering pile of ash and bones.

Fiction? Yes. But you can't deny a certain frightening stare from such young children. Dressed in black mourning clothes, the children clasp each other's hands in a crushing grip staring at the photographer in something between a threat and a warning.

The tin type is 2 3/4 by 3 1/2 inches and is in a heavy plastic case. There are two ghostly orbs on the left side margin, over the girls arm. Other than that, the piece is crystal clear and imminently disturbing.
