The Story…

Back in 1954, after the death of his wife, Karen, Richard Wilson bought and built his own farmland, specializing in growing and selling corn. After his wife died, he became a loner, a man who was never known to associate with others much. He built his own home on his land. Wilson had several psychological issues. Many believe he would experiment on animals in the area, some even say he would on people that would visit his farm. From 1955-1962, 24 people went missing in the area of his personal land. While the authorities could never prove where all 24 missing persons went, they did find 3 individuals in a secret chamber underneath the house of Wilson, alive. They had handmade burlap sacks stitched to their heads. Some believe Wilson created “human scarecrows” for his crops as some sort of twisted replacement for his past wife.

While the authorities only found the 3 individuals, Wilson was arrested but released on a faulty search warrant for his home by the authorities, even after Wilson bragged about his kidnappings and his “art”. Months after, the 25th missing person case was filed and no leads other than Wilson, the authorities decided to go “Scorched Earth” on Wilson and his farm. On October 13, 1964 they launched a chemical attack on the farm, wiping out the entire farm, house and crops.

Years later, some say the Human or Undead Scarecrows walk the grounds, seeking out Wilson for blood. Some say Wilson is still alive, others say he isn’t, but one thing all people can agree on is, they stay far away from the old Wilson farm…
