Springtime is in full bloom and we feel it is time for a lov...a glove story. On this episode of Strange Country, join Kelly and Beth down a path of discovery on what truly is real love and what is just plain messed up. Count Carl von Cosol was a radiologist in Key West Florida in the 1930's when he met what he thought was his true love, a beautiful young married Cuban woman named Maria Elena Milagro del Hoyos. The only problem is that the love was not returned and sadly she died. This is where the story should end. But in Strange Country stories you know better Dash Hounds! It has only just begun. Listen in and see if we can get through the gory details.
