Destination Truth: Thursday, May 6 at 8pm ET/PT
Josh and his team travel to the Micronesian island of Pohnpei, where there are 1,000 year-old ruins that locals claim to be haunted. A little research by the team reveals that there are century-old stories about floating lights and moving shadows at the ruins. Then, Josh visits northern Morocco, in search for Aisha Kandisha, "the devil temptress." Although her name doesn't sound particularly threatening, this beautiful, nocturnal succubus is said to have been luring local men to their death for years. That is, of course, after she drives them mad with lust. Will Josh and his team find what they are looking for, or will the mysteries live on?
