Police get strange reports, especially about dead bodies. Some of them pan out, but alot don't. So when a berry picker told police he'd come across one by Fresh Pond Road, the information was taken, and a few hours later a detective was sent out.
In 1799, a young woman named Gulielma "Elma" Sands was killed. Her reputation was shredded during her murder trial, however no one was ever punished for the deed. Most of those surrounding the incident, who perhaps cheated her of justice, suffered a series of misfortunes in the years that followed.
On a chilly, winter day in December of 1933 a young girl arrived in the small town of Willoughby. Within only a few hours she was found dead next to the railroad tracks, and no one knew who she was and without any identification the townspeople donated money and buried the girl in the local cemetery, naming her the "Girl in Blue" as this was the color she was wearing when she was found.
