yeah...that climb WAS tough....we used to carry 2 liters of Purple Passion up there and skip school all the time......it was pretty cool looking out around Illinois fields n stuff......you can actually go there legally now...they turned the gravestones into a bench and walkway....they painted it white, but you can still see swastikas and Iron Maiden spraypainted underneath.....it's funny..........ahhh the memories!
to all who go there, be sure and leave a "tip-out" in the little bucket on the way out so they can keep maintaining it........we leave a 20 every time we go back...

If this is the old cemetery that I remember it was past Whiskey Springs and it was called Miles Cemetery. Five of us got arrested and taken to court for trepassing around 1965. We never got to see the tomb. You used to see it from the road coming out of Fountain.

The faint of heart could not make the trip up the side of that huge hill because it was so steep and when the rain came just forget about it. Pig's tried to keep those out but those of us that were determined went in the middle of the night and kept quiet most of the time up there and just drank our beer and whiskey and told old ghost tales and talked mostly about up coming concerts and argued over which rock and heavy metal bands were the best and if given the chance what bitch movie star would fuk.

Hit HWY-3 south, take it to Palmer rd turn right and that will take you to Bluff rd follow bluff rd for about I'm guessing five miles or less, when you pass B - road and Hanover rd the next sharp right is where it sits ontop the big hill before you take that right...where HH road goes to your left that is the hill. If you hit the road stating fountain road you went to far but you can turn around and look up at the hill and see the mausoleum.

Ok, about the witches house..I to went up to the witches house and tried to look into the windows and knock on the door, I seen a lady carrying a lighted candle up the stairs and it scared the Jesus out of me. When I got older, I was sitting at a bar and was talking to this nice looking chick and she turned out to be the very same lady that used to live in that house that everyone was calling her a witch. She told me her grandmother was a mean old lady and used to run kids off her property and so the kids deemed her "the old witch." When she died she took over the home and was going to Belleville Area College at the time. Well, one thing led to another and somehow people was thinking she was the old witch not knowing her grandmother had died and so the legend was born she said. People would knock on her door late at night keeping her up and she was scared something bad was going to happen to her and tired of all the crap she moved. I apologized to her and admitted that I was one of those people that went up to her home and was just following the legend. She said to me "you know if I were to catch you on my property I could have shot you because I was carrying a gun and was going to use it." I didn't know what to say. I just apologized and we talked a bit more and we said our good-bye's and then she left. I never saw her again.

we got busted up there when we were still in high school and they made us sit in that room with the double mirrors for a long time. when they finally came in, one of the cops says: "well, whatever you were sacrificing up there must still be alive,'cuz our trip wires just went off again..."
we all thought that was hilarious, that seemed to be their best attempt at scaring us from going there anymore...it didn't work......i hope they always keep it there....it adds to the mystery that are Triple Lakes Road........

The leads went nowhere.
For 27 years, police didn't know who strangled and stabbed a 22-year-old Cahokia woman and left her body on a pull-out couch in the front room of her rented trailer.
A random search of the Cahokia Police Department's evidence locker recently turned up physical evidence in the unsolved murder case of Cathy Musial, whose nude, strangled body was found Nov. 29, 1978. Her neck was also slashed.
That evidence was sent to the Illinois State Police Crime Lab for DNA testing, Cahokia Police Chief Rick Watson said Saturday. It will be compared to DNA databases maintained by the state.
"We will reopen other cases as the technology changes," Watson said. "Technology is the key to all of this."
Musial's murder occurred about eight weeks before the body of another young Cahokia woman was discovered in her home.
Carla Jo Mallery, 20, was found naked on a bed in her four-room house on Upper Cahokia Road on Feb. 8, 1979.
For the second time in less than three months, the Major Case Squad came to Cahokia -- questioning more than 120 people about Mallery's death.
The Mallery and Musial murders shared some similarities.
Both young women lived alone. Both were strangled, stabbed or cut. There was no forced entry to either home.
But later that February, Cahokia mother Zelda Durbin and her 5-year-son Craig were found stabbed to death in their home. Zelda Durbin was strangled with a coat hanger and stabbed 28 times with a steak knife -- the same type of weapon used on Mallery.
Police quickly arrested Durbin's next-door neighbor, Gregory Bush. He was found guilty of the murders and is serving a life sentence at Menard Correctional Center.
Police also considered Bush a suspect in Mallery's murder, but no one was ever charged.
A relative of Mallery testified in the 1979 trial that Bush bragged about murdering Mallery, but Watson won't say who he thinks may have committed the murders.
"At this point, we don't know," Watson said.
Watson doesn't believe the murders are connected to the unsolved murder of another Cahokia woman in 1977 -- Sharrey Lynn Case.
Case's strangled body was found under a pile of construction debris in rural Belleville nearly 28 years ago.
The evidence from the original investigation is lost, but St. Clair County Sheriff's Department investigators want to exhume Case's body in the hope some physical evidence still exists.
Case was last seen alive on Oct. 28, 1977 when her parents dropped her off at her boyfriend's trailer near Centreville. Her body was found six weeks later under wood lathing near Belleville. She was strangled with a wire and a sock was stuffed in her mouth.
SOMETHING I FOUND ON GOOGLE
So where was Cathy Musial's body found. Someone told me "she was found in the front room of her rented trailer" but where was the trailer?

Cahokia had suicides,murders and just some really screwed up people.Every little town across America has had someone go crazy and killed thier families.Suicides are in every family also.I hope it has not happened to everyone here,but 9 chances out of 10 it has happened.And for that 1 percent.Your lucky and I`m happy for you.I wish the world was a better place.I do believe it can get better?.........
