  1. Junkies, not ghosts… The woods behind the place is full of junkies that live there. Not sure which is scarier because I have never heard of ghosts stealing your car and the derelict drug addicts stole one last week…

  2. A friend of mine and I were in the cemetery on September 23rd 2018 doing doing rubbings of gravestones and taking pictures and the first one that we did it was the man’s birthday his name was JD McCormick. Later on when we went through the pictures it totally looks like somebody standing in the back of the cemetery and there was no one there…
