    In the 1860’s their were tons of slave plantations where I live. The story is in 1864 a slave escaped a plantation and the owner was furious!! He went all over looking for her, with a hatchet in one hand and whip in the other. And they say his spirit still haunts the streets. So every Halloween all black and brown kids have to be in by 10pm. Although this was probably just made up to scare black kids in the 1950s and 60s

    The watchers one is true! I’m from that area. You can go there and park in front of their house at any hour of the day/night and someone will come running out with a shotgun. I don’t think they’ve ever fired though, it’s enough to scare people away just by waving the gun around. They take shifts to watch outside. It’s pretty sad. Kids around here do this for fun just to see if it’s true and taunts those people constantly. :(

    Ha, I'm in Northern Ohio, and have heard both the "melonheads" (Eastside) and Gore Orphanage (Westside) legends all my life. With the melonheads, they forgot the "guy parking in the woods with his girlfriend, disappearing to take a leak, only to be found the next morning hanging over the car with his nails scratching the roof all night" part of the story.....

    The Kimberly story is one that runs in my family but hundreds of people in arizona and el paso, texas have heard it. My uncle had an experience with a student when he taught in el paso involving her home and chupacabras. As the story goes, she is still alive and followed him to Arizona where our family lives now. She is said to sometimes be seen at the old canals here.

    For the bunny story not only do people claim to see the bunny man carrying an axe, but according to the legend two girls went there on Halloween night one turned around then turned back to see a bright shinning light at exactly midnight then the two girls where discovered hanging from trees skinned like the bunnies, every year for a while after that the same exact thing happened. The only thing bad about this story is it’s COMPLETELY fake. The only remotely close thing to it is the fact that a couple were in a car together, then they saw a man with in a bunny suit with an axe right outside there car and stepped on the gas. They are completely fine though. The other story is just an urban legend

    The weirdest one has to be the one about the innocent man who said an oak tree would grow out of his grave to show his innocence and then how clearly no one, like a grieving relative, was ever allowed to visit the grave and bend down and jab a few acorns into the ground to validate their loved one's claims... Spooky!

    Okay so, I live in Ohio and at my old house I totally 100% believe that it is haunted by a cult family or one single person whose been in a cult, here are my reasonings, so my mother didn’t tell me this till later in my life, but in her closet there was a cross painted on her wall not just with paint but with an oil it was just stained there. There would be this random man who would sometimes just come in our drive way and stare into our house and my sister had to hide us in the bathroom. In mine and my sisters old room which was the attic was humongous but there was closets one near the stairs and one at the end of the room. I didn’t pay much attention to this stuff because I was around ten or nine now that I’m older it’s strange. 1. Inside those closets were little secret doorways leading into the walls only in the upstairs but there was a big enough room to have a tiny little spare room in there, but when me and my sister would open the hatch there would be just some hard crusty old towels Red towels all in a circle around the little room. My friends were scared to stay up because they would hear my name being shouted and the steps creaking and pounding up and down them while I was asleep only in the upstairs though. Mine and my sisters toys would move or make noises as we were trying to sleep. The TV would randomly stop and go static at 12 am every night. My old cat was very mean at the time but once we moved into our new house he was weird my dog was fine but the cat started clawing the carpets pissing everywhere clawing up everything so we had to get rid of him. We never knew what happened in that house farther more

    in lafayette oregon there was a lady who was accused of witchcraft in the 1800s i think, and they hung her. before she died she cursed the town to burn down three times, and so far it’s burned down twice. the cemetery she’s buried in is said to be haunted by her too. apparently if you go in there her ghost would chase you out and scratch you until you bled. people kept going in there and getting attacked and it got to be such a problem that the city banned people from going in there.

    I have a story too,
    Once upon a time a young boy ate a lot of food...After a few hours the boy had a stomachache and rushed to the bathroom...but as soon as he reached in the bathroom he realised that he forgot his phone in the bedroom...
    The legend says that if u go past the bathroom u can hear him yelling ,,BRING ME MY PHOOONE"

    And that boy is me.

    at my school we have a a legend (actually a few)
    the basement bathroom-
    in the girls room of b20 the school had installed electric hand dryers. when a student was washing her hands, and when she pressed the button on the new dryers she was electrocuted and died. so when you wash your hands you can end up with cuts on them or see her in the mirror or something like that’s.
    the projector room-
    a janitor used to live in this old projector room in the auditorium. he died of a heart attack, and you can seem his shadow up there? idk he does ghost stuff i guess

    So I'm from England and to my knowledge there are no local urban legends. However I have 2 creepy stories.
    1. Purple Aki.
    Purple Aki is a black man from Manchester that has reportedly gone up to men and squeezed their muscles. Now it doesn't seem to creepy but if you try to look for him you can't find him. Thus he hasn't been caught. People know what he looks like but he hasn't been arrested.
    2. Hairy hands of Dartmoor.
    This title is a little weird. On the B3212 , a country road found in Dartmoor - a southern moorland round the river Dart- strange accidents occur. It's said that an apparition of hairy hands appear on the steering wheel and jolt the car out of control and off the road. There is no particular time it affects people but they do survive with minor injuries.
    Now I don't know all the ins and outs of these legends so I may be wrong but it's about as creepy as I could get. They would be nice cases for you to look into so... do some research I guess.
