Vampire killing kit gets $14K+ in auction—too late to use on RJC

NATCHEZ, MISS—A complete and authentic vampire killing kit—made around 1800 and complete with stakes, mirrors, a gun with silver bullets, crosses, a Bible, holy water, candles and even garlic, all housed in a American walnut case with a carved cross on top — attained $14,850 in the Jimmy Pippen estate sale by Stevens October 3–4 in the new Natchez Convention Center.

This begs several questions:

o Is 200-year-old garlic still effective? 

o What if the silver bullets were tarnished? 

o Was the Lone Ranger—who also used silver bullets—really a vampire hunter?

o And does the crucifix stop Jewish vampires, and if so could we have used it on the RJC?
