I was passing the hitching post, and a man in a trench coat with a big hat was standing in the lane beside me. I could see right through it. It terrified me.|

In the early spring of 1990, I was briefly staying with a relative who lived off Foust Carney Road. One night I was driving on Clinton Hwy towards Clinton after seeing friends in the Broadacres neighborhood in Powell. At midnight exactly, I was stopped at the light at the intersection of Clinton Hwy and Edgemoor Road. A guy on his tractor at the intersection to my right passed through his green light onto Edgemoor Road. I remember thinking it was a weird time of night to be on your tractor, but... Whatever. When my light turned green I passed through the intersection, and as I did it felt like every hair on my head stood up straight. It was very strong and weird sensation. The sensation continued as I was driving in the left lane up the road.
I had my bright headlights on, and nothing else on the road, when I saw in passing, in the right lane beside me a very young girl crossing, possibly ten to twelve years old, walking on the right side of the road. She was barefoot and in a straight little colorless dress with spaghetti straps. Not enough attire for a cool early spring night. She also had her head turned away from me, at an acute angle looking way over her left shoulder. She never even glanced at my car, or looked where she was going, even though I passed pretty close to her. The powerful hair raised effect was still with me, and even though, being female, I have stopped to help other females on the road at night at different occasions. I could not have stopped for her for any reason whatsoever. I should probably mention that I was well past the Zion Cemetery, and closer to Foust Carney Road, where I was turning off, when I saw her.
I was scolding myself for not stopping the rest of the way to the house, and was feeling guilty and still weirded out by the time I arrived. I went ahead and called the Sheriff's office about the young girl being on the road like that, and where I had seen her, and they said ''yes, we know about it already. '' The woman I spoke with sounded kind of irritated, and then she said ''everybody who's called about her says she's in a different place. '' I hung up the phone feeling kind of bemused and foolish, when it consciously hit me. As I had been driving up the road, with my brights on she would have been crossing right in front of me. My headlights had never picked her up! So years now after the fact, still not sure what I saw. Anybody else ever seen her?.

I grew up on Medaris Street and had a similar experience with the shadow. I only saw it once around the time my sister and her two children were murdered in 1999. I was watching TV with my cousin, and I had this awful dreadful feeling come over me like I was being watched. I felt the feeling of extreme hatred.
