This haunting Mississippi story is still told today. In 1942, a phantom barber terrorized the town of Pascagoula by cutting the hair of sleeping people. Newspapers at the time reported that he would occasionally only snip a lock or two, but would sometimes cut off a whole head of hair. He particularly liked blonde women. There have not been any reported copycats of this crime, so blondes, you’re safe — for now.
