You should all be careful what you go looking for. You might just have something follow you home that your not gonna like. Somethings are better left alone. Especially if you have no idea what your dealing with. Trust me. I know.

True story, the infant wasn't killed but was left for dead, the infants brother actually hovered over him and saved him.

Maybe someone can give exact location, but supposedly there is a church in either caryville, our Defuniak, that is haunted, past the rr tracks, I heard at night there is hand paints that are bloody on walls, ceiling, etc. Jus hear say, might be something to check into, take ur flash light, don't go alone.

Truth is at least 3 children and the mother survived...I lived near this family, and went to school with the children.

I have heard people that lived there say they have heard a girl crying from the bathroom... they also say many other things have happened in that house. Granted this was more than one person with the same stories. I have rode up to that house at night, it gives me the straight creeps, when we pulled in the house was unoccupied and the water pump outside kicked on. There was noone living there for quite some time so I was definitely freaked out and we left right then.

There's only a field there now. The well where the murder weapon was found was filled in years ago. Nothing scary about that place.

Actually... He was still in jail, when he spotted the house. Mrs Carney Hess been hanging clothes on the line outside the day before. The inmates were cleaning and clearing ditches, and the innate spotted her. He then was released and went back, cut screen and went in. Beat her so badly she remembered nothing. She was suppose to have died. She had traumatic brain damage and had to stay in mental hospital long time. Didn't even know who her children were. Very awful situation. Sicko
