[SIZE=2]Spooks and Spirits[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]Strange Plutonian Visitors in the City[/SIZE]


[SIZE=3]Columbians have been stirred up for the past 10 days over the mysterious appearance of a being dressed in a black shroud, walks about at the still hours of midnight. There are many different theories presented regarding this strange visitor. Some seem to think it is a man dressed in woman's clothing and it is his intention to burglarize homes, while others claim that it is simply the intention of the plutonian caller to amuse himself by frightening the inhabitants of certain homes. While still others who consider the matter more seriously are confident that "it" is a supernatural being and is the forerunner of a great calamity that is to befall Columbia and are spending all of their spare time on their knees and calling on neighbors to straighten up all former differences. Some think also that since the midnight stroller is seen principally in the vicinity of the Fred Douglass school, that "it" is a sequence of the memorable school war recently ended here.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3][/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]With all of the theories and opinions passing around, little else has been discussed in the past week. And the question is now what can be done to rid the community of such a pest. The police was called to the scene by telephone last Monday night and soon opened fire on the departing figure, but the shots took no effect and the '"ghost" made good his escape.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3][/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Crowds of men have scoured the haunted section of the city for the past few nights, but have failed to capture "it" thus far. But it is evident that no peace will be had until "it" is captured.[/SIZE]

Elkotronics, The best way to find those kind of stories is to type what I call " Ripley's Believe It Or Not " words in the Google search box; The unexplained, the mysterious, the weird, the unusual, the astonishing, the amazing, and type in Missouri behind them. I wish I could find all my papers that I had been writing down the links and stories of what I had been finding on the internet over the last few years, that stack was as big as a phone book. I had them at work and we have one of those huge industrial paper shredders that the guys are always playing with, I think that's what happened to them. Some of the ones I can still remember but most I will have to stumble across again. Remember when we had the killer clown scare last year ? I recalled we had one from 1981 and found this on the internet;

Tony's Kansas City: Remember The Kansas City Killer Clown?!?!



Here is a site some guys are putting together, they don't have anything for Missouri yet but I keep checking.
