  1. I was in grammar school when this happened. The 2 sisters just came back from the movie Love Me Tender with Elvis Presley. They went to a local restaurant and they met up with a guy who they left with. They were both found on the side of the highway, frozen, no clothes and this has never be solved. I have never heard that there was any ghost action there, but I would not be surprised if there is.
