POPLAR BLUFF, MO – Two years ago we reported on someone in North Carolina who was killed by a train while investigating a ghost train. Now we have two teenage girls in Missouri who were also trying to catch a glimpse of a ghost train, and were killed when a very real train smashed into the vehicle they were sitting in.
“They were playing a stupid game called ‘Ghost Train,’ and the object is to get scared, kind of like telling stories on Halloween,” Butler County Coroner Jim Akers said. “The game was to park on the tracks, let the windows fog up inside and let your mind play tricks on you.”
As Aikers stated, and as detailed in a post at strangeusa.com, the game consists of stopping your vehicle on a particular stretch of tracks on Wilcox Road and turning it off. As you sit there with the rolled up windows becoming increasingly foggy, legend says you may see the lights of a train that crashed in the 1900s.…Continue Reading
ASHEVILLE, NC — Police have a charged a North Carolina mother with murdering her two young daughters with a hatchet before trying to use it on herself.
Neighbors say that on Saturday they heard blood curdling screams coming from the home of Naiyana Patel. She and her husband have run the Ash Pantry Food Store for the last couple years and had recently moved into the home with their two daughters, 8-year-old Jiya, and four year old Piya.
Her husband, Lalji Patel, called 911 after returning home from work Saturday morning and finding his two daughters dead and his wife injured. Police say Naiyana used a hatchet to murder the two girls before using it to repeatedly strike herself in the head.
Naiyana was rushed to the hospital where she is recovering, despite her wishes to die, with a guard posted outside her door. She told police that she wasn’t responsible for murdering her kids, but rather a “ghost killed her children.”
Not surprisingly, it’s being reported that Naiyana has some mental issues.…Continue Reading
The group of twelve had gathered on the railroad trestle at Buffalo Shoals Road in Statesville where, over 100 year ago, a train wreck happened that killed about two dozen people. They were there to investigate the legend that claims you can hear or see the doomed train on each anniversary of the accident.
Unfortunately for the group, they happened to be on the trestle when a Norfolk Southern train came around the bend at around 2:45 in the morning. The conductor saw the group and tried to stop the train but was unable to do so before striking and killing 29-year-old Christopher Kaiser. His body was found in a nearby ravine.
Another woman with the group was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Several reports say that Kaiser pushed the woman out of the train’s path before he was hit.
I’ve included some video detailing the original accident, the trestle and the ghost stories surrounding it.…Continue Reading
