Owing to the numerous conflicting accounts of the bizarre 1964 case, the truth behind the so-called Blood Carnival Incident of New Jersey will likely never be known. Going by the official story there were only four actual fatalities at the hands of a single perpetrator, one Gerald C. Flagg. One thing that is agreed on is that Flagg was shot while fleeing the scene of the final killing. The official police report has, however, been shown to have been revised repeatedly, and it remains significantly at odds with documented accounts from witnesses of the notoriously benighted dance-hall rampage that was allegedly the conclusion of Flagg's two-day crime-spree. The obscurity of this event has inspired endless fascination.
