What If? Conspiracies
First, let’s start with theories about Sentinel High School. Pretty much all of the theater department believe that Wayne Nance lives in our school’s basement. Wayne Nance is a 1974 serial killer who lived in Missoula. He killed at least 4 people over the years, and somehow, the drama department mentioned him living in our school’s basement. This was quickly spread through the department and has stuck around and still told since then. This conspiracy has been around for many, many years. How it started is unknown.
