A man found human hair sticking out of a century-old grave during his walk at Saint Joseph’s Catholic Cemetery and caught it all on camera.
Cemeteries are often associated as eerie places because of the many dead bodies buried beneath the ground, and one man proved why it is indeed a scary place.
Joel Morrison was walking through Saint Joseph’s Catholic Cemetery, California, when he noticed something sticking out of a cracked open grave.
EERIE CEMETERY EXPERIENCE
“When I first saw it, I was shocked -- I wasn’t exactly sure what I was seeing was real. But upon closer inspection, I realized that it was definitely human hair coming out of the grave.”
Initially, the handyman felt terrible for the departed’s family members since their loved one may have been disrespected and desecrated in such a way.
However, he realized that other graves were also damaged by the growing trees and animals that lurked in the cemetery, which could have been the reason for the unkempt tomb.
Allicock was buried alive while working inside a grave after it collapsed.
Still wondering what had happened, Morrison returned to inspect the area only to find the hair pushed back inside the crack, which he thinks a groundskeeper did.
“What looks like happened to me was there was a large tree very close to the tomb/grave, and the roots from the tree had grown up into the grave, disrupting the concrete barrier and brick mortar, possibly pushing up the remains,” he shared.
He added that squirrels and other animals may have entered through the cracks and nested on the human hair. Still intrigued, Morrison plans to have the hair sample investigated to know if it is a human’s or not.
Another man, Alan Hattel, also found an odd thing in the cemetery that somewhat angered him -- his own grave. The 75-year-old retired welder noticed that no one had phoned him for a few months and wondered why.
Seeing as someone he presumes is his ex-wife placed his grave at Newmonthill Cemetery, Scotland, he now knows why no one contacted him. Hattel shared:
“I don’t even want to be buried -- I plan to be cremated. I’m still alive.”
Hattel has since spoken to Angus Council officials to remove the gravestone and is dealing with the matter with his ex-wife privately.
Unlike Morrison and Hattel, a woman’s experience in a cemetery was quite different. Seeing old gravestones and restoring them back to their original form brought her peace. It also allowed her to get to know the different histories engraved in the place.
On the other hand, a 42-year-old gravedigger, Rodwin Allicock, spent the final days of his life struggling in a cemetery.
Allicock was buried alive while working inside a grave after it collapsed. Although his workers and a rescue team tried to excavate him out, it was too late.
