This one’s hard to track down… several web sites mention a place in Boca Raton called “The Hole” where a woman was raped in the 1960s. Supposedly people see her still walking a parking lot in this area.
We’ve done some digging and so far haven’t found a place referred to as “The Hole” in Boca Raton, though there is one in nearby Delray Beach, according to this snippet from an article in the Broward New Times:
They hung out for hours at a time in front of a place on SW Ninth Avenue in Delray Beach known as “The Hole,” a string of small cottages with iron bars on the windows that served as a drive-thru drug mart. On December 28, 1986, Sallah and fellow reporter Gina Smith filed a story that began on the front page with a photo of an apparent drug deal at The Hole and jumped inside to a two-page spread dominated by a map pinpointing every known crack house in Delray Beach, complete with the address, the owner’s name, and a photo of each place.
So right now, that’s our best guess – though where on “SW Ninth Ave” is still a mystery. If anyone has info, please let us know!
