Seeking more info on the ghost of Eva
Posted by: scary dude ()
Date: August 01, 2012 04:21PM

Has anyone seen the ghost of eva? She was brutally murdered in the woods around Burke on August 4 1918. She's supposedly buried in the Lee chapel cemetery next to her father who died 15 years later.
The night of the derecho about 2am I was trying to go down Lee chapel rd but found the road blocked by trees. The lights were dark at the 123 intersection. I was using the crappy flashlight that was in my car to look under my car as a stick had been lodged in the under- carriage. Suddenly a girl appeared at the edge of the woods wearing a flowing nightgown. As I tried to get a better look at her she screamed "I am Eva" and vanished before my eyes.
I am totally serious, this is a true story. I understand that Eva has been spotted before.

Until now I had no idea that Dulles airport was originally supposed to be built in Burke. Found this while searching Eva+Lee Chapel.

Eva and her family lived in the white farmhouse that is right next to Pohick Library. A bunch of hicks live there today, but they don't appear to be relatives of the Roys.

On the morning of Aug. 4, 1918, Eva Roy, age 14, left her home near Burke, at around 9:00 a.m. to tend her father's small herd of cows. When Eva failed to return home that evening her father began a search. Neighbors were soon enlisted to help, but it was some 24 hours later that her body was found tied to a tree in the woods near the old Hanse House, her apron strings tight about her throat. The county coroner, Dr. W. I. Robey, concluded that the girl had been "Brutally assaulted" before being strangled to death.

Peter Roy died on January 22, 1938, and was interred in Lee Chapel Cemetery next to his youngest daughter. Her murderer was never found.

Wait, so ghosts now scream at people? I've never heard that claimed before. By anyone. In any ghost story. Ever.

Here is all the info you'll ever need on Eva.

She does not exist.

Ghosts do not exist.

Also written as Haynes, go to this website and zoom in to "Burkes Station". The Haynes house is off of what is now Burke Lake Road. Interestingly enough, a house labeled as "Hall" (Lou Hall being the alleged murderer of Eva) is not too far up Pohick Road from this location.

Rumor has it, that if you go back to that location you can "summon" Eva by doing this...

1). Turn your back to the woods.

2). Close your eyes

3). Shout out loud, "Eva! Eva! Eva!" (Not fast, but with a little pause in between).

The ghost will either appear or you'll hear her whisper. You might want to bring a tape recorder to catch anything the spirit might respond to. (Maybe ask a series of questions). Other people have said that it appears that the ghost is trying to get attention in an effort to get help.

This is a fickle ghost. Seems to sometimes be either lost or roaming around looking (hunting?) for something. No one has ever been able to get a picture of her that I'm aware of. I noticed that one of the posters above mentioned Eva's alleged murderer, Lou Hall. Sometimes she is seen in the vicinity of that place. Maybe she's seeking justice...Or Revenge?

“My Granddaughter Caught Ghosts Having Sex” (Video)
WTF, Weird, X-files — By Goran on 2011/11/03 8:01 AM
http://dailypicksandflicks.com/2011/11/03/my-granddaughter-caught-ghosts-having-sex-video/

How’s this for paranormal activity – ghostlusters caught on tape? Well, according to Dianne Carlisle from Eucid, Ohio, her granddaughter, Kimora, 4, photographed with her mobile phone two ghosts having sex in the livingroom inside her home.

“It look ghosts having sex in my living room. They are having sex, you can see the lady’s high heeled shoes!”

Dianne says this is not the first time she has experienced visits from the beyond. Several years ago she claims to have seen a little girl that also appeared before her daughter, De’Onna Burnett.

Another time, Dianne was looking at a new hairstyle in the mirror when she snapped a picture of the back of her head.

She claims to see a figure in the photo that wasn’t present at the time. But what is most disturbing, is a message left on Dianne’s voicemail. She claims it’s a message from her deceased sister.

“She said ‘I love you’,” said Dianne, reports WSBT .

I used to work as a county cop in the late 80's early 90's and we used to get quite a few service calls about that cemetery around this time of year. We often rolled up on kids smoking weed and drinking cheap beer in there. We would pour out the beer and stomp their weed into the ground and send them home most of the time.
One night we were looking for a kid that was known to hang out at at the cemetery. The kid had assaulted his mother and had run away from home. I hiked in there with another cop while two other cops kept their distance sitting in their crown vic's. We had info that the kid was camped out under a cameo tarp.
Sure enough we spot a tiny campfire in the rear of the cemetery, we got pretty close to him before he tried to run. I grabbed the kid by his ankles while my buddy peppered him. Just about the time we get the cuffs on this kid a rush of wind that seemed to come out of nowhere takes our breath away. The wind was so strong that it blew the campfire embers out into the woods and set the dry leaves aflame something terrible. As I grabbed for my radio to call our buddies to move in I saw a young girl in a light blue robe walking through the fire. I called out to her for fear that she may get burned, she turned to me and screamed "God please help me!" then she vanished like scotty had beamed her up. I swear to god this is a true story.

Okay, I tried it


Turned my back to the woods.

Closed my eyes

Shouted out loud, "Eva! Eva! Eva!" (Not fast,
but with a little pause in between)

I waited about 2 minutes


Two guys in white uniforms came out of the woods , threw a net over me, and drove me over to the The Northern Virginia Mental Health Institute.

The FBI approved it for use by their agents in '89 and mailmen carried it for several years before that as dog spray.

Notice i said "I dont think" meaning based from my own memories from that period of time i could not recall any instances of cops carrying or using pepper spray.

I have seen the ghost of Eva. Ghosts do not speak but they can telepathically communicate with you to the point that you think you have heard them speak. Eva is a soul who is troubled and who is desperately trying to communicate.
It has been twenty years or more since I was there at the cemetery but I felt her presence very strongly about 150 yards from the cemetery near an old abandoned pick-up truck.
The truck had a faded logo on the door that had something to do with railroad maintenance. I have no Idea if this truck still exists today but I believe a clue as to the real identity of Eva's killer lies near there.
Eva appeared to me standing in the bed of that truck and said "Help me here please help me" and then she was gone. My brother searched that area with a metal detector and found the key to the truck a couple of old coins and a couple dozen beer bottle-caps. I hope Eva finds peace of mind someday, her soul needs a rest.

I don't really believe in ghosts, but this story is intriguiung, and I wonder if there is any way to access police reports from that far back in order to figure out what happened to this poor kid. From what I have found out:
- Lou Hall was caught after a lengthy pursuit with bloodhounds. It is unclear whether he was running or whether he was just far away and it took the dogs a while to find him. Residents of the county were going to lynch him, but Sheriff Allison guarded the prison and threatened to shoot anyone who showed up to take him. His exoneration was ultimately due to the fact that the belt use to strangle Eva was too small to be his, and that the murder scene showed evidene of a terrific struggle. Hall, evidently, was a huge man and he was extremely strong, so it was reasoned that Eva couldn't have given him the kind of fight that the murder scene portrayed. Hall's wife ratted on him, but apparently she was batshit crazy so nobody believed her, and the "blood" on his shirt was later ruled to be tobacco juice.
- A soldier who went AWOL from Camp Humphrey ( which I believe was is now Belvoir) was seen passing through the area of the murder at roughly thee time of the murder. He was arrested in Charlottesville shortly thereafter (I don't know how long it took to get to C'Ville back then, but it must've taken a while). The soldier did have what looked like scratch marks on his face, and they exhumed Eva's body to look at her fingernails, but it was determined that her fingernails were too short to have inflicted scratches, and the walk to C'Ville was through areas of lush vegetation, so the soldier was let go.
- Someone named RUbin, who was a prisoner in DC, confessed to the murder. He was moved from a DC prison to the Farifax prison, but the police never bought his version of the story. Peter ROy, Eva's father, visiten Rubin in jial, and Rubin recanted his admission after that. In fact , he said that he had only confessed to the crime because he thought it would be easier for him to escape from a Fairfax jail than from the DC jail. He made good on his thought process and escaped from the Fairfax jail by sawing through the bars.
- Two teenage boys, one a black kid from Clifton named Wilson and one a white kid from Fairfax named Robertson, were also brought in for questioning, but as far as I can tell , they were never arrested.

Apparently Eva was a very popular kid and it really shook up the county, which at the time was populated by mostly farmers and woodchoppers. Again, I would be interested to see if the criminal records or the ME'S records from way back then could be found. It must have been so easy, relatively speaking , to get away with this kind of thing back then.

That is CRAZY. I grew up in Clifton and when I was maybe 9 years old (over 15 years ago) my oldest sister had a friend come over to pick her up to go out one night. The friend who usually waited in the car ran to our front door and was pounding on the door screaming in fear. She said she saw a little girl in a flowery nightgown standing up in the garden under the trees. Our entire family went outside to see what she was talking about but there was no one there.. This is just super interesting to me considering I hadn't even thought about it in years..

I take back some of what I said earlier. The two 16 year olds WERE arrested for Eva's murder and they were a white kid named William Wooster of Fairfax and a black kid named James T. Robertson of Clifton. They were never convicted however

I had a neighbor who was a guard at the Lorton prison back in the day who told me that Eva had been spotted a dozen or so times it was always in September or October.

I think you're right. I wonder if the structure is still there. Has anyone been out to the area recently?

Eva, we are having trouble seeing you from the great beyond.
What is your connection speed? How much RAM do you have?
Is the "great beyond" still using dial-up?

Murder # 3: Eva Roy

http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/library/branches/vr/bunny/bunny2.htm




3) Eva Roy: August 1918

Peter Roy was a Danish immigrant who had come to Fairfax from Minnesota in 1912. In November of that year he purchased two parcels of land near the current intersection of Old Keene Mill Road and Sydenstricker Road, totaling 180 acres.14 Roy, a widower, became a prosperous farmer and an active member of the Lee Chapel Methodist Church. With him resided his eldest daughter Caroline, her husband William K. Jerman, and his younger daughter Eva.

On the morning of Aug. 4, 1918, Eva Roy, age 14, left her home near Burke, at around 9:00 a.m. to tend her father's small herd of cows. When Eva failed to return home that evening her father began a search. Neighbors were soon enlisted to help, but it was some 24 hours later that her body was found tied to a tree in the woods near the old Hanse House, her apron strings tight about her throat. The county coroner, Dr. W. I. Robey, concluded that the girl had been "Brutally assaulted" before being strangled to death.15 A Coroner's Jury was appointed, and quickly concluded: "We, the jury, find that Eva Roy came to her death at the hands of some unknown person, and the indications point to Lu Hall, as the probable perpetrator of the crime."16 Hall, a 33-year-old woodcutter, lived about 1/2 mile from the scene of the crime and was seen in the woods near the time of the girl's disappearance.

The case was not to be easily solved, however, as other suspects were soon identified and eventually eliminated.

The first, William Wooster, age 16, was soon arrested for assaulting a "colored girl." He had recently been released from an insane asylum, but was found that he was nowhere near the scene of Eva's murder.17

The next suspect to emerge was a soldier who deserted from Camp A. A. Humphries (now Fort Belvoir). The soldier, a sergeant whom the papers fail to name, was located some days later near Charlottesville, Virginia. He had scratches on his face and hands, was wearing freshly laundered clothes, and claimed to have no memory of the events between his leaving Camp Humphries and his capture. Sheriff Allison traveled to Charlottesville to interview the man, but after some weeks of investigation determined that he was not connected with the crime.18

The lagging investigation seemed to finally receive a break with the apprehension of Ben Ruben, an escaped inmate from Lorton Prison. Ruben, who had been serving a three-year sentence for housebreaking,19 was arrested by Washington, D. C. police on September 19 for assaulting a little girl. While on the way to the police station he confessed to Eva's murder. Ruben claimed "he met Eva Roy, looking after her father's cows. He asked her for food and in a conversation with her he told her he was an ex-convict. She declared she would 'turn him up' as he declared, and he became excited and choked her."20 The Washington authorities were unconvinced by Ruben's story and wanted to try him for assault and theft before turning him over to the Virginia courts. An investigator sent by the Commonwealth of Virginia to interview Ruben concluded that he was not responsible for the crime, but extradition papers were filed anyway.21 On September 26 Ruben was escorted to the scene of the crime by Sheriff Allison, Commonwealth Attorney C. Vernon Ford, Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Wilson M. Farr, Dr. Swetnam, and acting counsel for the defense F. D. Richardson.22 After being unable to locate the scene of the attack or the tree where the body was left, Ruben denied killing Eva. He claimed the presence of the girl's father spurred him to recant his confession. Ruben's motive for confessing was revealed some weeks later when on October 6 he escaped from the jail in Fairfax. He was arrested two days later while attempting to buy a pistol and admitted that he concocted his story in order to be transferred to Fairfax, where he thought escape would be easier.23 He was eventually convicted of burglary and escape from jail and was sentenced to four more years in prison.24

Lou Hall was finally tried for the murder in Fairfax County Court. The prosecution was handled by State's Attorney C. Vernon Ford, assisted by Wilson M. Farr. The defense was provided by Walter T. Oliver. His first trial resulted in a hung jury with nine votes for guilty, three for innocent.25 His second trial resulted in a clear verdict of "Not Guilty."26

Peter Roy died on January 22, 1938, and was interred in Lee Chapel Cemetery next to his youngest daughter.27 Her murderer was never found.

The situation has gotten worse. Now when you go out there, say just around midnight, Eva makes noises from in the woods. If you make fun of her (like we did), she starts shrieking. The batteries in our maglight flashlights and cameras died too. Truly horrifying. If that happens with a group of 4 to 5 people, what would happen if someone went out there alone?

I will go out there one night this month and give it a try. I feel bad doing it because the people who live right in front of the cemetery are probably tired of people going in there, but , hey, I didn't tell them to buy a house in front of a cool old cemetery. I am pretty much an atheist with no belief in anything spiritual, but I would love for something to change my mind for better or for worse.

I never knew about this women. Reading this story now creeps me out so much. When I was little about 8-12 I would often play in the woods in the burke/springfield area and many times I encountered a girl in a white dress who would be running around or standing watching me. She approached me once and told me she needed to show me something and I was freaked out her energy was so intense and I could just feel so much sadness coming from her and I turned and looked behind me at my friend and I don't know if they saw it or if they were just felt her energy but when I looked back the girl was gone. I still see her time to time standing on the edge of certain areas of the woods and to this day I still regret not following her. I always had a feeling that this girl was murdered but now that I have some history of the area its quite amazing to find this information out.

When I was a kid in the early 80's my friends and I would ride our bikes on the trail that runs from the lake accotink dam to rolling road near the moving company. I think it might have been part of the w&od railroad back in the day. One summer evening my buddy had a flat on his 10-speed and we were on the side of the trail trying to patch the inner-tube when we heard something rustle in the leaves then a rush of wind picked up for just a few seconds and we saw a young girl in a loose fitting robe staring at us from the woods. She was there for about 20 seconds before she vanished before our eyes. We pumped that tire up about halfway and got the hell out of there as fast as we could. A few years later I heard the stories about Eva and I realized that we had seen her.

Well, I really DID go out there. It's extra creepy because a huge tree came down in the hurricane and the whole place is littered with wood and looks like a cemtery straight out of a Poe story. It was night, it was late, and I saw nothing. Nada. I wish it was different, but I think people are just fooling themselves

I think they are always going to seem more accurate than they actually are because there is a TV show about them. There have been many, many stories where so called psychics were put through a battery of tests and they displayed absolutely NO ability to psychically discern very simple things (such as what playing card a person behind a wall was seeing). The graveyard was spooky and I was uneasy, but absolutely nothing happened

The OP is dated August 1 so apparently that sighting occurred in July or earlier.

She visited me three times, maybe more, that soft ghost who smelled like violet, violet and fabric softener perfuming age-perfected jeans. She only came in when nobody else was there, seemingly always as my consciousness ebbed. She didn’t say anything at first, mostly, or if she did I didn’t hear it. I didn’t need to. Those times, in the quiet, in that kind of muted blue-but-never-quite-dark that hospital rooms get, some light always leaking in somewhere, when someone sat next to me and took my hand, I knew it was her by the touch and the smell, and she didn’t have to say anything.

And here's some other stuff...

The Center for Paranormal Research and Investigation
virginiaghosts.com, 27 Mar 2001 [cached]
I never saw the Bunny Man myself, but then I never strayed into the woods at night, especially not near the Bridge...
Most childhood ghost stories are forgotten as one gets older.However, the Bunny Man followed me. After graduating from college, I accepted a position with the Fairfax County Public Library, eventually becoming an Information Specialist in the Virginia Room.One day around 1992 a very well-spoken young lady came into the Virginia Room with a question.She wanted to know how she could find information on a murder that was supposed to have taken place near her home.As I interviewed the patron to ascertain what hard facts she had to go on, some vague memory nagged at me.Two children were allegedly murdered by a local hermit for trespassing, and their bodies left hanging from a covered bridge.She had no names and only a vague idea of a time frame.The whole story seemed a little fantastic, but the thing that really bothered her was the guy was supposed to be an escaped inmate dressed in a bunny suit.At this point, even though the story had evolved a bit, I recognized the tale from my own youth.We were unable to confirm any of the elements of the story as she or I had first heard it, and I put it down in my mind as a story fabricated to scare children.
...
I began with a few basic assumptions.
...
Since police records are not available for casual review and court records are indexed by the names of those involved, not by location or type of crime, I had to begin by checking the local newspapers.
...
The county coroner, Dr. W. I. Robey, concluded that the girl had been "Brutally assaulted" before being strangled to death.15 A Coroner's Jury was appointed, and quickly concluded: "We, the jury, find that Eva Roy came to her death at the hands of some unknown person, and the indications point to Lu Hall, as the probable perpetrator of the crime."16 Hall, a 33-year-old woodcutter, lived about 1/2 mile from the scene of the crime and was seen in the woods near the time of the girl's disappearance....
I was extremely frustrated to find that the page containing the referenced article was missing from the original paper.With any hope of a quick resolution gone, I turned to examining the paper itself.
...
I was elated (and not a little surprised) to find the following:
Man in Bunny Suit Sought in Fairfax
...
When I began this project the aspect that puzzled me most was the bunny suit.I expected to find that the legend was spawned by an event that was strange or in some way notable, but I never suspected the Bunny Man really was a "Bunny Man." I was even further surprised to find a second appearance recorded two weeks later:
...
"I started talking to him," Phillips said, "and that's when he started chopping.""All you people trespass around here," Phillips said the "Rabbit" told him as he whacked eight gashes in the pole.
...
I again turned to Johnson's paper for clues.As mentioned earlier 14 of her tales mention a couple in a parked car being attacked, but nine of these specifically mention a hatchet being thrown into the car.Of the five mentioning vandalism, two describe "columns" being chopped.The story told by 17-year-old G. Taylor was particularly revealing.She related:
"I think it was last year or maybe before that.I came home from school.I was listening to the news.I had just gotten in and I heard there was a man and a woman sitting in a car.
...
I am not prepared to even hazard a guess.

I went to the kings glen school for a couple years in the mid 70s. We saw her at least twice hanging around the woods at the edge of the school property. Once a teacher went after her thinking she was a kid from the school or something. The teacher said she vanished as she approached her. The police were called and a search was done by several cops and a police dog. No trace of her was found and that teacher was quite shaken up for days.

Not only is King's Glen quite far from the site of her murder, it's also quite far from the area of her old home and her burial plot. So it wasn't the ghost of Eva you saw.

I remember being told this story from a neighbor. The ghost there was believed to be a girl that was involved in a suspicious suicide/murder? Don't remember the names involved, but she had been seen in the woods near the school. Many think that the girl went to that school.

I grew up in the Saratoga area off rolling road. We used to go down to this little creek and float toy boats and just have fun like kids used to do. One day I looked up and saw this girl who looked like she was a little older than me and she was dressed kinda funny in a robe of some sort. I asker her what her name was and she said "Run home now!" My friend and I got really scared and started for home, when I looked back she was gone. When I got to my yard I found my big brother laying in the yard next to the lawnmower, he had been stung bad by wasps and was having a allergic reaction. I got my Mom right away and she brought medicine to help my brother and we took him to the doctors office. The doctor told me I saved his life but I know it was really Eva!

I've noticed that there are more sightings of Eva around that area when there's going to be bad weather or bad accidents. Could she be trying to warn people?

Eva Roy: August 1918
http://virginiaghosts.com/bunnyman.php

Peter Roy was a Danish immigrant who had come to Fairfax from Minnesota in 1912. In November of that year he purchased two parcels of land near the current intersection of Old Keene Mill Road and Sydenstricker Road, totaling 180 acres.14 Roy, a widower, became a prosperous farmer and an active member of the Lee Chapel Methodist Church. With him resided his eldest daughter Caroline, her husband William K. Jerman, and his younger daughter Eva.

On the morning of Aug. 4, 1918, Eva Roy, age 14, left her home near Burke, at around 9:00 a.m. to tend her father's small herd of cows. When Eva failed to return home that evening her father began a search. Neighbors were soon enlisted to help, but it was some 24 hours later that her body was found tied to a tree in the woods near the old Hanse House, her apron strings tight about her throat. The county coroner, Dr. W. I. Robey, concluded that the girl had been "Brutally assaulted" before being strangled to death.15 A Coroner's Jury was appointed, and quickly concluded: "We, the jury, find that Eva Roy came to her death at the hands of some unknown person, and the indications point to Lu Hall, as the probable perpetrator of the crime."16 Hall, a 33-year-old woodcutter, lived about 1/2 mile from the scene of the crime and was seen in the woods near the time of the girl's disappearance.

The case was not to be easily solved, however, as other suspects were soon identified and eventually eliminated.

The first, William Wooster, age 16, was soon arrested for assaulting a "colored girl." He had recently been released from an insane asylum, but was found that he was nowhere near the scene of Eva's murder.17

The next suspect to emerge was a soldier who deserted from Camp A. A. Humphries (now Fort Belvoir). The soldier, a sergeant whom the papers fail to name, was located some days later near Charlottesville, Virginia. He had scratches on his face and hands, was wearing freshly laundered clothes, and claimed to have no memory of the events between his leaving Camp Humphries and his capture. Sheriff Allison traveled to Charlottesville to interview the man, but after some weeks of investigation determined that he was not connected with the crime.18

The lagging investigation seemed to finally receive a break with the apprehension of Ben Ruben, an escaped inmate from Lorton Prison. Ruben, who had been serving a three-year sentence for housebreaking,19 was arrested by Washington, D. C. police on September 19 for assaulting a little girl. While on the way to the police station he confessed to Eva's murder. Ruben claimed "he met Eva Roy, looking after her father's cows. He asked her for food and in a conversation with her he told her he was an ex-convict. She declared she would 'turn him up' as he declared, and he became excited and choked her."20 The Washington authorities were unconvinced by Ruben's story and wanted to try him for assault and theft before turning him over to the Virginia courts. An investigator sent by the Commonwealth of Virginia to interview Ruben concluded that he was not responsible for the crime, but extradition papers were filed anyway.21 On September 26 Ruben was escorted to the scene of the crime by Sheriff Allison, Commonwealth Attorney C. Vernon Ford, Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Wilson M. Farr, Dr. Swetnam, and acting counsel for the defense F. D. Richardson.22 After being unable to locate the scene of the attack or the tree where the body was left, Ruben denied killing Eva. He claimed the presence of the girl's father spurred him to recant his confession. Ruben's motive for confessing was revealed some weeks later when on October 6 he escaped from the jail in Fairfax. He was arrested two days later while attempting to buy a pistol and admitted that he concocted his story in order to be transferred to Fairfax, where he thought escape would be easier.23 He was eventually convicted of burglary and escape from jail and was sentenced to four more years in prison.24

Lou Hall was finally tried for the murder in Fairfax County Court. The prosecution was handled by State's Attorney C. Vernon Ford, assisted by Wilson M. Farr. The defense was provided by Walter T. Oliver. His first trial resulted in a hung jury with nine votes for guilty, three for innocent.25 His second trial resulted in a clear verdict of "Not Guilty."26

Peter Roy died on January 22, 1938, and was interred in Lee Chapel Cemetery next to his youngest daughter.27 Her murderer was never found.

Eva did not appear last night but I felt her presence. We made seven attempts to summon her. She is a fickle ghost we will try again in late October as that seems to be her favorite time to appear.

Tonite and every nite until the nite.



Fear is when the sky turns grey,
Fear is when you lose your loved ones,
Fear is a feeling of danger,
Fear is when you aren’t brave,
Fear is the feeling of anger,
Fear is when you can’t behave,
Fear is when your shy,
Fear is like not having devotion,
Fear is when you’re afraid of saying bye,
Fear is like a dark blue ocean,
Fear is like ending you’re career,
Fear is like being lonely,
Fear is like not being able to reappear,
Fear is like feeling ghostly,
Fear is like an ashtray,
Fear is like a dark dungeon
I see it every day.

You're going to the wrong place, you need to go to the wooded area (not the church). The wooded area is where most, if not all, the sightings have been.
