50+ ‘Scary Stories’ That Are Actually 100% Real


“There is a a rural cemetery outside the small town where I live and grew up where something that sounds like a scene from a horror film took place. In the late 80s/early 90s there was a rash of serial rapes/murders around the area. One of the victims, a young woman, escaped from the car of the rapist and found herself running away from the car and into the cemetery. She saw lights on a farmhouse in the distance and hope for survival flickered in her eyes. Unbeknownst to her, the darkness hid the fence surrounding the perimeter of the cemetery. She ran blindingly into it and was knocked down allowing the rapist to catch up to her. He then beat her to death with a toppled headstone.
