A Walk on the Odd and Macabre Side
Wolfgang Von Mertz, or just Wolf, owns Wolf's Museum of Mystery in St. Augustine, FL. He and his wife collect artifacts, art and oddities from around the world specializing in the strange and macabre. They have African artifacts, Dr. Kevorkian's art, and personal letters to Wolf from Charles Manson, and a bedroom dedicated to Lizzie Borden, among other things. We discuss his unusual hobby, his former career as an Air Force Officer and a Lawyer, and his love for animals, especially his pet chicken named Irma.
His museum has been featured in many documentaries and in an independent film titled, "The Laughing Mask."
