Well, it's all true, because I saw it on The History Channel.
Now we can all have a mind (and fact) altering experience thanks to Brad Meltzer and his tireless "detectives" on Brad Meltzer's Decoded: Houdini Murdered? The episode is now streaming FREE for a limited time at the Decoded website. You can also order this monumental piece of hokum on DVD for $24.95 at the History Channel Shop, or buy it on Instant Video from Amazon for $2.99.
You can also hit your head with a hammer for an hour and achieve the same result. The choice is yours!
