What's The Scariest Urban Legend From Your State?

Does a monster live in your hometown?

Recently, Reddit user Stalins_Moustachio shared a cool graphic of urban legends from each US state, and it's wildly fascinating.

For example, in California's Santa Lucia Mountains, there's an urban legend about "Dark Watchers."

They say these "dark silhouettes" wear brimmed hats and stare down travelers in that area.

And in Staten Island, the urban legend of an escaped mental patient with a hook hand terrified the area.

The worst part is, this urban legend turned out to be...kinda REAL.

Meanwhile, in Terrell, Texas, there's the "Candy Lady," who lures children to her windowsill with candy...then pulls out their teeth or stabs them in the eyes.

Supposedly, she sometimes even kidnaps them!

But do you know of OTHER scary urban legends from your own state? Surely there are more?!?!?!
