Dead Man’s Bridge
An urban legend based in Clifton in Fairfax County, Virginia. The stories in the legend can be wide in variance from the origin of the killer, names, transportation changes, the killer’s motives, the weapon(s) of choice, and the possible demise of the killer.
The killer’s ghost or aging specter is said to come out to the place of death each year on Halloween to commemorate his untimely demise. Sometimes, victims’ carcasses are said to be left in varying states of death, sometimes having been skinned or gutted, and some victims appeared with horns fashioned out of deer antlers or sticks protruding from the heads.
