Comment by Chris: About 5 years ago my brother in law said someone got hit by a car in the intersection near R and R.
Comment by Calvin: During the time listed August of 2015 is when black tar heroin really flooded Tucson's drug market. A large number of recent addicts were young and inexperienced in using hardcore narcotics. Improper injection technique overdosing inability to distinguish cut dope which sometimes contained household toxins really caused a mental and physical health crisis which did not have outreach programs at the time. Cops and even citizens kept junkies out of the publics view (as best they could by isolating communities of addicts and monitoring them). Pantano wash adjacent to the gas station the materials lot and car dealership was one such containment point when the problem of young homeless drug addicts began to get serious. I'm familiar with several individuals who met their untimely end while camping out in that area. Causes were far-ranging, everything from homicide exposure disease and most relevant to your story, hit and run, and auto collision. That overpass was once covered in flowers, candles, written messages banners, and memorials to those who died there. That's not including all the OD's and the other bad stuff that occurred there. The overpass also has/ or had a large population of bats living underneath it. Bats can carry rabies and all sorts of infectious diseases. Their guano was at least a few inches high in some areas. The city actually posted and painted warnings on the support beams. It got so bad. Anyway as someone who once lived in squalor in that area of the east side, I can say that for a time misery was abundant in Pantano River Wash, enough so to host ghosts, evil spirits, demonic energy, or whatever you want to call it.

For about one full year we lived in a northern suburb of Tucson called Gladden Farms. I had some strange experiences living there. I have never told anyone these stories, except my husband. And he does not believe in ghosts. Our home was built over farm land. As far as I know, the history of Avra Valley also included railroad building camps and some small Civil War events that happened mostly north of us at Picacho Peak State Park. Sometimes at night I thought I heard voices of a small crowd like folks cheering on a fight. I wondered if someone had been dragged out to the area to get beat up at some time, and the loser was beaten to death. The sounds and feeling of the experience simulated that. I would not have thought anything about it, except I had that identical feeling at least three or four times while living there. I did not know what to make of it.
The best ghost experience ever happened to me was also while living at that same home! I saw a full apparition, glowing in a blue and white light, walking out of the wall and stopping at my side of the bed! We have a canopy bed that has curtains. I close the curtains when I am in bed to help keep more of the light from the windows out. She appeared to come right through the curtains! It was a woman who was dressed in old Civil War era clothing, a large skirt, gloves and a frilly shirt with a lacey wrap around her shoulders and another piece of lacey fabric covering her head, with her dark blonde hair all pinned up under it. She was carrying a small oil lantern. Her spirit had the feeling of a nurse or mother, and she seemed to come in to see how I was doing. I was asleep before the activity woke me up, and I had this strange feeling that if I moved I would scare her away. I stayed still and just had my eyes open a slit and pretended to not notice her. I wanted so bad to tap my husband and wake him up to see! The woman continued to just look over me, as if she was looking into my mid section, seemed satisfied and disappeared. I can still see her in my mind. The best ghost experience ever!.

Comment by Dee: I also lived in Gladden Farms, and I believe you! I had my first experience there. It scared me half to death! I'm from Florida and had moved to live closer to my daughters. When I told my oldest daughter what happened, she laughed and said welcome to Arizona! She then came out and smudged the house with white sage. Did you have any other experiences while there?.
