The Screaming Man, according to witnesses, begins by cring piteously and gradually buildings to screaming, shouting, and curses. The noise is so loud that those nearby have had to call the police, although no one is ever found. Some have seen a shadowy figure running and flailing his arms nearby. Also, the spirit of a teenage girl named Mary is said to offer condolences to grieving folks who visit the cemetery.
