    1. There’s more to this story. I wouldn’t say it’s a bad type of haunting. Rumor has it, that if U drive down to the lowest part of the canyon, where water sometimes flows across the road, and turn your car completely off, but leave it neutral, the spirits of the children that were killed, will push your car out of harms way. And if U put baby powder on your bumper, U can see their little hand prints left behind.
