A businessman named Azariah Pinney had a slave who requested to be buried back in his homeland; after the death, Pinney didn’t satisfy the demands and opted to have the slave buried at the local cemetery. Unfortunately, a terrible scream would roar through until the body was taken back to Bettiscombe Manor. In time, only the skull of the slave remained and anyone who moved it from the manor would also be plagued by screams.
