The Story of Bunny Man Bridge (fictional)
The post-civil war population of the Clifton area creates the need for a petition that will relocate an asylum kept deep within the woods of Clifton Virginia.
Convicts are transported by bus from the aforementioned asylum to a new facility; know in the present day as Lorton Prison. One of the buses swerves off the road, thus allowing the convicts to escape. All are captured with the exception of two individuals: Marcus A. Wallster and Douglas J. Griffon. Disemboweled rabbits begin to show up in the surrounding woods of Clifton where the two convicts are supposedly residing. Initially, Marcus A. Wallster is deemed the "Bunny Man", that is until he is found dead. The cause of death is unknown due to the lack of interest by local officials. He is found with a makeshift tool resembling a hatchet. This tool is made with a sharpened rock and strong tree branch. After Walster is found dead, Douglas J. Griffon is dubbed the "Bunny Man".
April 7, 1905:
Police give up searching for Griffon because of the decrease in dead rabbits in the surrounding areas. People begin to believe that Griffon has either moved on or has died. As autumn approaches there is a reappearance of the disemboweled rabbit carcasses. October 31, 1905: Two boys and one girl are killed at a bridge used by the crossing railroad located between modern day Fairfax Station and Clifton. They are killed at approximately 12:00 AM with wounds to the throat and chest. The bodies are then disemboweled and hung at the entrance and exit of the bridge. The two boys are hung by their necks at one end, and the girl is hung in the same manner at the other end.
The name "Bunny Man Bridge" is now adopted as the name of the bridge at which the murders of the 3 people had taken place the prior year. It is believed that Douglas J. Griffon still inhabits the woods and is responsible for the killings, though there is not hard evidence to suggest this. October 31, 1906: Seven teenagers venture out to the bridge again around 11 PM. Only one of the seven people in the group is worried about the history of the bridge, her name is Adrian Hatala. Hatala stays back from the bridge as her friends stay within the bridge. Hatala witnesses a dim light "walking" the train tracks within minutes of 12 AM. The dim light stops above the bridge at exactly 12 AM. It then disappears, only to reappear as a bright flash of white light inside the bridge. Seconds later, the bodies of the six people Hatala had accompanied to the bridge are mutilated and hung in the same as those the year prior. Frantic and in shock, Hatala returns to town trying to explain what she had witnessed, but can not get her story across. Adrian Hatala is then charged with the murders of the other six people and put in prison. 7 years will pass before an event will take place concerning the "Bunny Man Bridge".
October 31, 1913: Repeat murders of 9 other teens take place. Thus, the charges against Adrian Hatala are dropped and she is to be released, though she is found to be mentally unstable and not released.
October 31, 1943: Six more teens are killed in the same manner and once again an investigation came up with no new information.
Adrian Hatala dies from shock while still committed. It is believed that she died in her sleep while dreaming of the events that she witnessed in 1906.
October 31, 1976:
Again, repeat murders of 3 people at the "Bunny Man Bridge". Investigation leads nowhere.
October 31, 1987:
Janet Charltier and 4 friends go out to the bridge in order to prove the folklore behind the bridge false. They are expecting to survive past 12 AM on Halloween night inside the "Bunny Man Bridge". The group plays practical jokes on one another and Janet becomes frightened. At exactly 12 AM she is in the process of leaving the bridge, her body halfway inside the bridge. A bright flash of white light is witnessed and she can feel her chest being cut open without any known source. She then runs out of the bridge and falls unconscious, when she awakes she finds the four other's slain bodies, her own chest bleeding and her hair had turned white.
Charletier sits in a swinging bench of her balcony every morning, she stars in the direction of the bridge. No murders have taken place since 1987, though who is to say no more will?
