"The Bridge to Body Island"

Post by Fr Dennis Kibbler » Mon Jul 07, 2008 11:13 am

Here's a story for you:

The Bridge to Body Island

Originally from the book
“The President’s Vampire”
by Robert Damon Schneck

In Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, three college students got together to play with an old Ouija board that one of them had found in their attic. They began experimenting with it. One of the three, named Eli, had always had an interest in the paranormal, being an avid ghost hunter. He hadn’t much luck with it – nothing occurs when he is around. The other two, named Katherine and John, were also interested. They wanted to come up with something, using the ouija board, that none of them could have known and couldn’t have come from their subconscious minds. After many failed attempts, the ouija board finally began to work. What came out were a kind of new-age messages, about love and higher vibrations. The three did notice however that the spirits were making references to an entity or being which they seemed to be afraid of. Eli, who loved scary stuff, wanted to pursue what that spirit was. All of the spirits left, except for one, that called itself “the Spirit of the Board”. It refused to give more details, however, after several attempts at asking, over several sessions, the spirit gave this account:

The creature it was afraid of was a man who was born about 1912 in Algiers, Louisiana. He was born an albino and was left at a local orphanage. As he grew up he lost his sight and became violent. He attempted to run away from the orphanage several times, but he was always found and brought back. One night, he took a large pair of scissors, attacked a nurse and fled to the train yards. He became involved with voodoo or black magic, and became a kind of a monster who developed a name that became a folklore figure, a bit like the “Candyman” from the movie. He began wearing glasses that were painted black – after all, he was blind. He started killing people; they began to find bodies horribly mutilated by the train tracks all over the country, or at least all over the south.
The man then started putting together a friend or a pet, from the tongues and eyes of his victims that acted as his eyes. It would whistle when a victim was found and he closed in on them. But he found his victims in an unusual way – whenever someone would think about his name, or concentrate on the name he gave himself, it was a psychic beacon and the man was aware of them. As long as someone thought about his name, he would begin to move towards them.

They thought that was the end of the story…until…
One night, Eli and Katherine went to a concert in Wausau, Wisconsin and they were walking along a rail bridge to an island named Barker Stewart Island, which was known as Body Island, because bodies used to wash up on the shore from the lumberyard upstream. As they were walking, Eli saw a turtle in the river, so he climbed down to see it. While he was gone, Katherine heard a whistle. A whistle that got louder and louder. She panicked and ran away.
They later broke up and she started dating John.

All three had trouble sleeping. They would always wake up at 3 AM. One night, John heard a knock on his door…”Come on John, we’re going out for breakfast”, John turned and noticed it was dark out – it was the middle of the night. The knock came again. Paralysed with fear, John dropped to the floor where he noticed, in the crack under the door, two shadows. A tall one and a small one. He remained there the rest of the night. Could it have been the man who’s name he had been thinking about?

The mans name is……

When I went to see Lorraine Warren speak at the local high school in Monroe, CT she stopped her lecture to talk to the high school students about the dangers of playing with a Ouiji Board. She said this is a very dangerous thing to do (To call out the spirits) and in her life's experiences she has witnessed many horrible things that had happened to people who have messed with Ouiji boards. She instructed people if they own one not to throw it away but to bury it face down as far away from your house as possible.

The funny thing is when I was a kid I think Milton Bradley made Ouiji Boards and my Granny had one at her house that all the grand kids use to play with. Does anyone else remember playing with a Ouiji Board as a kid? I think this was pretty main stream back then.

The story would make a pretty awesome movie I bet.

I remeber having a ouija board once, years ago. I bought it at Walmart for $5.99. My mother and I tried it but we had no luck, so I never used it again. It sat in my closet until a friend came over one day and said he wanted one so I gave it to him.

Lol, dude Milton Bradley still does make them, but now the only place I know you can get them are at 'Spencers' (gag).
I remember Lorraine saying the same to us I think, when I was at PenState University.

I found at least two major stores that still sell Ouija boards (other than Spencer's)

ToysRUs

Target

Also, Ouija boards were manufactured by Parker Brothers (out of Beverly, Massachusetts, a stone's throw away from Salem) not Milton Bradley. Parker Brothers are now owned by Hasbro.

That's good to know Spencers isn't the only place. I don't care for that place at all. :lol:

Yes..Spencers is a weird store. I went in there recently with my 11 year old daughter and was shocked how many in your face sexual references they had on the shelf in the open. They were always edgy but as time went on they really push the envelop. I'm somewhat shocked on how dirty their slogans and products are and they are right in the open for every little kid to view. Bad taste in my opinion.

Your area has a Spencers store? The Lakeview Square Mall in Battle Creek used to have one up until a few years ago...whenever I went there, I couldn't help wondering where they got some of that stuff from...if you want unique, outrageous stuff, that's definitely the place to go!

That's crazy!

Kids that age have no way of knowing what they're dealing with.

If used without the proper knowledge, those boards can be extremely dangerous in the wrong hands...and last I checked, Ouija boards don't discriminate.
