Mad Gasser of Mattoon

The Mad Gasser of Mattoon is an urban legend caused by a series of real-world gas-related attacks, the criminal involved was never caught and as such the figure evolved far beyond the realms of reality and much like Jack the Ripper entered into modern legend.

The Mad Gasser has been re-envisioned as either a mentally ill criminal, an evil-minded monster or demon and even as an alien invader akin to the Flatswood Monster.
