It all started a long time ago, about 30 years ago. A man by the name of Mike Hoppens was sent to death row for the murder of his wife, Bettie. According to Mike, his wife caught him cheating on her with her best friend Kelly and threatened to divorce him. Mike, in fear that he would loose everything he has ever worked for, grabbed her by the throat and started choking her. She then got a hold of an ash tray and shattered it on his head. Needless to say, he let her go and she ran for the front door. But before she could get out she tripped over the coffee table and Mike caught up with her.
Mike pulled out a knife, jumped on top of her, and started stabbing her until she died. He then began to cut out all her teeth, peeled off all the skin from her face, and cut up her body in pieces. He then placed the body parts in small garbage bags and then placed the small bags into a large garbage bag. After cleaning the old house up, he then put the large garbage bag in the back of his pick up truck and drove off. He drove to an old well and dropped the head in it, then he went to a field and burnt the rest of the body.
Everything went fine for awhile, that is until an old man was hired to plow the field asked about the burned spot. The owners went to investigate. What they found was more than just a spot for the teenagers to start a bonfire. The old man went to the well and dropped the bucket, and pulled it up for a drink. When the bucket got to the top, the jaw bone was found. The police ID'd the body and Mike was the number 1 suspect. When he was questioned, he confessed and was arrested. In court Mike was found guilty and was placed on death row.
One year later Mike was found dead in his cell, scratched in to ribbons. The inmates swore he was screaming, crying and begging, "No!, No! please Bettie! Please!" Mike pleaded until finally there was silence. One inmate said he thought he was dreaming, but he thought he saw a woman in a white dress and covered in blood floating by his cell on her way to Mike's cell.
And the house you ask? Well, The old Hoppens house is said to be haunted. Of the day the place stays quiet and peaceful, But at night its a different story. When the clock strikes 7:46 pm the house takes on a life of its own. Screams can be heard at this time which is the same time Bettie was murdered. The lights go on and off, the doors open and shut, a woman in a white dress, covered in blood (just like what ever it was that killed Mike) can be seen walking on the porch. Sometimes she can be seen walking up and down the road. Whispers can be heard inside the old place. At the old well a headless woman dressed the same way can be seen walking around the well as a voice from inside the well can be heard saying in a sobbing voice. "Where is my head. I need my head.
