  1. it’s unlikely to find bullet holes in bones- apart from the skull. Taylor why do you express skeptisim? i’m not doubting you, just hoping you’ll add a bit more to your ideas.

  2. I used to live across the street from this park in an apartment building. I was chattering about how I had heard it was haunted and wanted to visit it. A friend of mine started talking about how she went there once and she felt very strange the whole time. Then she continues to tell me about how weird the people were there, how there was a lady in white that looked like she was from another time. When I told her about the “haunted reports” there she became pale and very frightened. Because we were right across the street, she left right away.

  3. My 2 aunts and their friends experienced the apparition in the tunnel. They walked half way inside the tunnel and saw the lady in a puddle of water floating. The lady in the tunnel asked where her children were and my aunts and their friends just stood their scared, all of a sudden the woman in white floated so fast towards my aunts and their friends, they took off running. She was getting closer and closer, and right when she was about to get them, they made it out of the tunnel on time and she slowly vanished. I guess she doesnt leave out of the tunnel. It scares me to this day when i hear about the story..
