There is an old barn about 8 miles outside of Sterling. It's called Scratches Barn. On December 10th 1987 a man killed himself but when the man was hanging he changed his mind and started scratching at the walls to try and stop himself from choking to death.|
His body was found with thousands of scratch marks on the walls around him.

More than likely someone did hang themselves because there is a pulley which would've been the only place. However, there are no scratches. The barn is brick therefore no human is strong enough to scratch bricks.
