I live right by Newton Lake and at night I can hear screams from the lake. The same exact screams of agony every time. I've looked and seen nothing. I know there was a drowning there once and I'm thinking this might be a haunting from that event.|

Comment by K: I lived in Oaklyn and experienced a disembodied voice pathetically begging for help. It seemed to be an adolescent female saying over and over again ''help, Katrine, help me. '' (My name is Karen, so I am guessing the spirit had mistaken me for someone else. ) Anyway, the voice was first heard outside my bedroom window. Then it entered the room and circled around the ceiling, then exited out the window again, but not before coming nose to nose with me still calling for help. I swear I could feel her breath. I was 10 at the time, and it was a beautiful spring morning with the forsythias in full bloom. For some reason, I thought the timing of the forsythias blooming triggered the visit.
I did a little research of the history of Oaklyn and learned there was race track that had once stood near Newton Creek, WHP, and the surrounding area. The track was built in the mid 1800s, was visited by Ulysses S. Grant, and tragically destroyed by a fire with many casualties. I often wonder if this spirit perished in body on that day and roams the nearby area still seeking her lost ''Katrine'' and the help she needs. Perhaps the screams you hear from the direction of the creek are also from the tragic racetrack fire. Next time you hear them, take note if you smell smoke also.
