Also known as the Mad Gasser this phantom attacker sprayed paralyzing and nauseating gasses into people's homes during the night. The victims were unable to move for approximately forty minutes and extremely nauseous. The gasser was described as a man, or a woman dressed like a man, wearing all black and sprayed gas that smelled like flowers. The police received over a dozen calls in response to this attacker and at least twenty-nine victims, who were predominately female. The Phantom Gasser was never found.
Sam: Yeah, maybe not. Except for this—Dad marked the area, Dean. Possible hunting grounds of a phantom attacker.
Dean: Why would he even do that?
Sam: Well, he found a lot of local folklore about a dark figure that comes out at night. Grabs people, then vanishes. He found this too—this county has more missing persons per capita than anywhere else in the state.
Dean: That is weird.
Dean: Don’t phantom attackers usually snatch people from their beds? Jenkins was taken from a parking lot.
Sam: Well, there are all kinds. You know, Spring Heeled Jacks, phantom gassers. They take people anywhere, anytime. Look, Dean, I don’t know if this is our kind of gig either.
