"LADY IN WHITE"

IN THE WOODS ON BELLE-ISLE, ONE
COULD GO TO A TREE STUMP MARKED
CR + TL. STOP YOUR CAR, FLASH YOUR
LIGHTS THREE TIMES, SHUT THEM OFF, GO
OUTSIDE TO YOUR LEFT FRONT TIRE, KICK
IT THREE TIMES, GO BACK INTO YOUR CAR
AND BEEP YOUR HORN THREE TIMES. THE
LADY IN WHITE WILL APPEAR TO YOU. DO THIS
ONLY AT THE BEWITCHING HOUR.

Submitter comment: TOLD AT A TEENAGE HOMECOMING PARTY.
IT WAS SAID THAT THE LADY IN WHITE WAS
A GIRL WHO GOT KILLED BY HER BOYFRIEND ON
HOMECOMING AND (HE) STUFFED HER IN THE TREE STUMP
AND MARKED THEIR INITIALS. SHE WAS WEARING
A WHITE GOWN.
