Cemetary to Kill 'Dead Children's Playground'

There are 38 comments on the Groonk's Newsmine 2.0 story from Oct 16, 2007, titled Cemetary to Kill 'Dead Children's Playground'. In it, Groonk's Newsmine 2.0 reports that:

“It is thought too dangerous for most children to play in.”

This is a bit of local folklore that's about to make way for more dead people. A place to bury the dead apparently means more money for the city. via Groonk's Newsmine 2.0

I lived and went to school in huntsville, dcp used to be our hangout when we were cutting classes at butler. Weirdest thing ever happened to us was a little bit uh swings moving by themselves but thats about it, but that type of stuff interests me, so i wasnt that freaked out. I hope to make it back to huntsville one day for a little nostalgic revisit to one of my favorite haunted places.

I have been to "Dead Children's Playground". This is a really spiritually active place. My friend and I went several years back. We could hear footsteps and could feel strong presence around us. I felt like someone was right behind me... following and watching.

I have lived in Huntsville all my life, and my parents still go to my childhood church down the street (and to the left -- park there any day but Sunday and nobody will mess with you, by the way). I have many boring childhood memories of church gatherings at dead children's playground. Our church softball team practiced at the softball field that used to be in the empty lot past the playground area. I learned to drive a stick shift in the cemetery. I took field trips there to look at the historic grave sites. I have been both places many times day and night both with large crowds of people and just a few friends.
There are actual trails in the woods (a few of which my friends and I originally hacked out with a cheap machete almost a decade ago) leading all the way from the church to the playground, all the way around the playground along the ridge at the back right, up to the field at the end of the drive, up and along the ridge bordering the field, and down to the cemetery. Consequently, I wouldn't worry too much about hearing voices or footsteps. As for the swings, the sheer rock faces everywhere sometimes keep the wind moving down in the lowest area (the playground and swing sets) even when it's not moving at the parking lot up the hill.
All in all, there are probably better places to look for ghosts in Huntsville. Oh, and the cops do occasionally cruise through at night, so don't be too stupid. As for them possibly tearing it down, I have no idea :).

As the story goes, Carlos Dahmer was a local serial child molester nicknamed "The Northeast Molester". He terrorized pre-teen black Huntsvegas girls on the bad northeast side of town for years. He was breaking into their parent’s homes while they partayed on chronic weed & purpal drank as the childrens slept, and sexually molesting them lil peoples with a big bass drum mallet, all while wearing a pigs mask.

One full moon Halloween weekend night, he kidnapped four young black girls from a local Richard Showers gangsta Girl Scout campout over by A&M. He raped and tortured the young cherub faced nappy haired girls, and then murdered them by cutting out their sex organs, which he supposedly stewed and ate.

To make identification of their bodies difficult, he cut off their fingers and broke out their teeth with a drumstick. After doing this, he took sexually explicit pictures of himself orally copulating with the mouths of the dead children (nechrofellatating). Then he tied their dead bodies to his Jaguar using stolen government surplus chains and dragged them up and down Monte Sano Mountain, trying to deface their dead bodies even further.

Afterwards he took their severely disfigured unidentifiable bodies to this playground, and propped the dead bodies on the swing, slide, merry-go-round, and sea-saw. Days later, he was arrested at the Myric Motel, where police found the necrophilia sex pictures and remains of the girls sex organs in his crock-pot.

This is a true story, and can be found in past editions of “True Detective” magazine. Now you know the rest of the story.

Sounds like this serial child molester from the 1960’s got his ideas from local and national figures. Carlos was nicknamed “The Northwest Molester”, and back in 1980 John Paul Dejnozka was nicknamed “The Southwest Molester”. Carlos cooked & ate parts of his victims, so did serial murderer Jeffery Dahmer. Like the local 1984 murder of Robin Balazrs, Steve Thompson stabbed her vagina, cut off her fingers, bashed out her teeth, then dragged her body up & down Green Mountain in his attempt to make the body unidentifiable. And the nappy haired thing… a quote directly from Don Imus. Looks like Carlos could also see the future, because most of the above mentioned people were just kids in the 1960’s, and A&M was still a top-secret government laboratory that was splicing apes & monkkkey heads onto the bodies of uneducated fat drunk & stupid trailer-trash rednecks in an attempt to build sub-humans (them blacks) that could mindlessly fight in future fake wars. The Myric Motel was originally built as temporary housing for the mad genetic scientist who were working with the Apes & Monkkkeys. I remember seeing all this in True Detective magazine and on Fox News Glenn Beck show, so it must be true.

Ok lived in Huntsville my whole life in fact my family has been in Madison county for generations. My mother was born and grew up in 5 Points and my grandparents, great and great great grandparents are buried in Maple Hill. Been to DCP many many times and have never seen anything. But the story of the man killing and mutilating the young girls there is NOT true. My mother lived like 8 blocks from there in 1960 pretty sure she would have know. About something like that happening. Don't believe everything you see or read people.
