The Cursed Earth of Hagel Circle
Posted by: chuckhoffmann ()

I spend a good chunk of my day researching and writing, and one street name in Lorton keeps coming up in my endeavors as connected with some of the most distressing events.

Hagel Circle.

Here’s my list of the most disturbing occurences I’ve found so far:

January 15, 1987 Off-duty Virginia State trooper Alexander M. Cochran, III, and Army Sergeant Dennis R. Kief, both 27, are shot to death in the 9800 block of Hagel Circle.

September 1, 1990 While visiting friends in a home in the 9600 Block of Hagel Circle, 23-year-old Paul S. Harley is shot to death.

September 28, 1991 The strangled corpse of 22-year old District woman Antonena B. Lindsay is found in the 9700 block of Hagel Circle.

August 4, 2005 30-year old Christian A. Green is stabbed to death in the 9600 block of Hagel Circle.

September 27, 2006 Connie L. Briggs Parham, of 9588 Hagel Circle, dies in a car crash in Prince William County, aged 51.

May 29, 2009 54-year-old Robert J. Neal, Jr. shoots his wife, 45-year-old Jacqueline Y. Neal, to death, then kills himself in their home at 9637 Hagel Circle.

September 22, 2010 Elieen Cecilia Langham-Anderson, 24, and her two sons, 5-year-old Soloman Anderson and 3-year-old Alfonso Anderson, die in a house fire at 9639 Hagel Circle.

In case you didn’t keep count, that’s 11 violent, unnatural deaths of people, more than half of them murders, connected with a road that is two thousand feet long.

Someone should do some deeper investigating. Is this an old Indian burial ground? A former cemetery? Or, as Steven King’s Jud Crandall describes in his novel “Pet Sematary”, is it just that the ground is sour?

At any rate, I’m quite sure there’s one street in Lorton I won’t be visiting anytime in the near future. Care to guess which one?
