My great grandfather worked up 22 in the 50s. He said he picked her up many times and she would always look out passenger side window or straight ahead but not at him while he was driving. I myself have drove that rode many times at night but never seen nothing.

I only post on this when I see something genuine. I gave her many rides. I probably know your GGF. I'm an old man. She always looked out the side window or straight ahead. Thank you for confirmation. This is comforting to know that at least one person saw same.

It was an unspoken thing. She showed up to some but not to others. Island Creek was a strong influence and ran a tight ship. We didn't talk of this back in the day.

These are not dead people coming back to haunt the earth. You guys realize this right? It's a token meant to fool.

"cosmic pranksters" if you will.

It started at a local club, I had just went through a divorce and was looking for love in all the wrong places, I met this girl, we went to 22 mountain, afterwards as I was leaving out, she told me to let her out, that she lived close by, I stopped the car, she got out, I thought to myself this was strange, so I got out of my car, in the middle of no where, she had disappeared, this HONESTLY HAPPEN.

I didn't want to post on this again but when someone seems sincere, I'll respond. It's a murder mystery, not really. A psychotic husband was delusional and decided his wife was cheating on him. He brutally murdered her. Logan County politics are eccentric at best. People get away with murder here. I'm not proud of being from here. Everything was ambigious and never found settlement. Hence the brouhaha. The posting nitwits have done their best to sensationalize this. Sorry, you all lie.
As a Christian man, seeing Mamie on many occassions is difficult to explain. I know what I know and I've seen what I've seen. If you want specifics, ask me. I'll answer.
I think it was Harry Robertsons wife who in a fit of jealousy pushed her down the stairs and broke her neck.The black man covered it up for her.He respected her and was loyal to her til the end.THE END

I think one or both of the Robertsons did it but Clarence Stephenson took the fall for them. It's scary to think how someone with power around here could get away with murder by pinning it on a loyal servant....makes one wonder how many others have been railroaded around here on the whims of a few crooks with some pull.

She always disappears, poof! I know the make out (it) spots in 22. Tell me it wasn't sex. If it was, leave Logan County, leave Mingo County. Never go to 22 again. This is bad. She did go poof? This is bad. Let me think. She just induced massive hiccups into me. It's bad. Something really bad. Bad sometimes to be physic. Sick, gonna puke. It's really bad. Leave. I'm an old man and can't take this. She asaults me when she's in distress. Also when I'm in distress.

Just kidding earlier. Mamie never went clubbing. She travels no further than the old two lane Logan-Belo road. Portions of it still exist on top of "The Rock" and directly accross the four lane from the 22 exit. Your girl probably was a different spirit or perhaps so underwhelmed that she vaporized.

<quoted text>YES SHE DOES REALLY HAUNT THIS PLACE.....I was up there with my friends when I was 16 and it was about 11:45pm....we were coming back down off of 22 mine road to come home when all of a sudden about 7 miles from the highway, the lights went out on the truck, the engine died, and there was a transparent figure climbed into the back of the truck and rode with us for about 5 miles, when the figure left the truck, everything came back on and we were able to stop before we got to the highway........I do believe in spirits and have helped a few of them to pass on to the afterlife.
FIND HER REALL KILLER SO SHE CAN REST IN PEACE!!!!!!!!
