“THE MURDER OF BONNIE LEIGH SCOTT”, “TRUCKSTOP HORROR STORIES” and More True Scares! #WeirdDarkness


The story of Bonnie Leigh Scott is a forgotten Chicago tragedy. Bonnie vanished on September 22, 1956. That evening, around 6:30 p.m., she left the home where she lived in Addison, Illinois, and told her grandmother that she was going out to look for a blouse. Bonnie lived with her aunt and uncle, Mrs. Robert Schwolow; their daughter, Sue, 15; and Bonnie’s maternal grandmother, Mrs. Doris Hitchins. Her parents were separated and in the midst of a divorce. Bonnie was an ordinary girl, a sophomore at York Community High School and a babysitter for many of the young children who lived in the quiet suburban community. The five-room, newly built ranch house where she lived was virtually identical to all the others on the street. Before the night of September 22, Bonnie never caused a problem, never drew much attention, and seemed like every other girl her age. But that night, she became a mystery. As the police began tracing her steps, assuming that she was a runaway, they managed to find four teenagers who saw her at a diner in Addison around 7:30 p.m. that night. She was also seen at a surplus store, located next door to the town’s police station. After that, she had apparently vanished into thin air.

“MOTHMAN STORIES YOU’VE PROBABLY NEVER HEARD” and More True, Terrifying Stories!#WeirdDarkness

Bad omens – to most it’s just as silly to believe them as to believe in flying monsters or that a solar eclipse will bring about the end of life as we know it. But when looking at the correlations between odd or strange events, and the Mothman, you might begin to wonder if bad omens may be real after all. Which just might also give you a bit of a hesitation and a few goosebumps when you experience the next solar eclipse.
