The Legend of Crybaby Hollow

Taylor from Alabama sent me this local legend that he actually experienced himself. Check it out:

Hey, I'm Taylor from Alabama. I LOVE your blog and book. Hope you make another Scary States of America.

So here is the legend: A young woman was so angry at her infant child that she threw him off the bridge. Now when a car goes across the bridge, it shakes back and forth or is pushed forward. Also tiny hand prints are seen on the car afterwards. If you leave candy on the bridge, the ghost will take it. If you pour baby powder on the bridge, footprints of a baby can be seen. The bridge is now called the bridge of crybaby hollow.

Okay, so here's what happened to me:

I was driving back to where I was camping out. On the way I drove my grandparents' car across the bridge of crybaby hollow. Then, the car starting shaking all over! The baby's cries filled the air. The ghost went inside my car! It grabbed my candy bar! Jason, I was so freaked out! The baby followed me as I went across the bridge until finally I sped off out of sight. People think I'm making this up. Do you believe me?

Your #1 fan,
Taylor

Why does No One ever seem to go to the places where Children Haunt them, and try to get the spirit to move on?

Do exorcists Want these poor children to remain where they are?

Surely something could be done to help this child, even if it is dead...

I have been through Cry Baby Hollow many times. One time I took my cousin & her friend through, just trying to get them aliitle spooked well, I came to a stop on the bridge & my car went dead & the doors locked,( this was around midnight ) all by them selves. We could also hear what sounded like a baby crying. We took off in a hurry once I could get the car started.
