Zombie Road

Photo credit: Tom Halstead PTF
Located in Glencoe, Missouri, Lawler Ford Road (nicknamed Zombie Road by locals) is a 2 mile long road through forest, hills and limestone bluffs which dead ends at the Meramec River. With over 100 years of history, the road has many legends concerning it. Tales of Native American spirits haunting the grounds, people who got lost out there never to return, and drug deals gone bad. There have been a few accidental deaths in the area along with evidence of strange ritualistic-type activities which could be cause for some of the paranormal occurrences that are reported there.

One of the most well known anomalies along Zombie Road is that of Shadow People - Dark shadowy figures that appear along the side of the road and nearby in the woods. A few years ago, Tom Halstead took this picture which clearly shows a dozen of these figures standing amongst the trees seeming to peer back at him.

Investigators from the Paranormal Task Force, along with filmmakers from Children Of The Grave, went out there to see if they could also capture these shadow people on film. It was not long before they began to pick up strange figures next to the trees, and just prior to that - a large black mass slowly moving along the road towards them. A noticeable temperature drop coincided with these sightings along with another important find. The team was using a laser grid system. They found that these black masses/shadows will actually break the beam. Which gives reason to believe that these entities have substance.

If you missed this chilling documentary, you can purchase it here.

Check out more pictures taken by Paranormal Task Force during their investigation.

I really loved the laser grid system.

I need to rewatch that, I kept falling asleep :P

The Zombie Road part was great, especially the old police officer.

The Booth brothers did a really good job, again. I was a bit shaken after and found it hard to fall asleep. All those lost souls... and how about the sinister one that was banging on the pipes? gave me chills

I sat glued to the TV watching this last night and was truly amazed at what I saw. It was one of the best I have run across. I thought then I would love to learn more about that area, so I was really happy to see you have posted about it today. I did a min-blurb about it on my blog, but did not have much information so this great. Thanks

Hi patty,

You are welcome. I am always looking for places such as this one for my site. This documentary is going into my collection. Good stuff.

Those photographs are eerie, but it's difficult not to be skeptical. I used to see shadow people when I was a little girl living in a haunted house, but I called them alive shadows, the namesake of my blog (www.aliveshadows.com). They looked like regular shadows with no person attached, i.e. they stayed along the walls as if they were in the room blocking light somehow. I believe I might have seen seeing the shadow of an entity rather than the entity itself.

Aura said...

Hi Antonia. Nice site. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your thoughts on Shadow People.

I think that the shadows seen in the doc film Children Of The Grave has substance as proven with the laser grid system that was used for that particular investigation. I have never seen a light source unable to penetrate a shadow cast by an object/person.

Awesome photograghs. The lightening background is distracting though and makes it difficult to read the text. Very interesting stuff though.

Oh, and the idiots that run Paranormal Task Force seem to think that Winston Churchill was an American author so I wouldn't put too much stock in ANYTHING they say.

There WAS an American author of historical novels whose name was Winston Churchill. He lived 1871-1947.

If you zoom in and look very closely, you can see three faces in the middle, and what looks like a hooded figure closet to the children on the right, but more centered. Two of the three faces look very demonic to say the least. The third looks troubled. It looks worried. Very interesting.

Long ago when I was a little girl, I was startled awake in middle of the night because of loud popping noises coming from my closet. I don't have schizcophrenia. If I hallucinate it would be the quiet noises. But this one's so loud I covered my ears. The next morning, I looked for the source of the popping. No balloons or toys that pop. Since then for a while, I lined my bed with stuffed animals, scared of that unexplained popping noise. Could that be a ghost?

One of my uncles live in Missouri. May be he knows about the shadow people.

Cameron said...

Have you ever been in a near-death situation before? But felt like someone invisible save you and your family? I have. I was in a wreck when my uncle was trying to teach me how to drive. I wasn't in a near-death situation (chipped bone on foot and sprung ankle) but my uncle was. He had several injuries that could have killed, but he wasn't. I think my guardian angel protects me and people I love. Thanks to it, my uncle is still alive today. Someday, I'm going to join the paranormal research team and may find out who my guardian angel is. I can't wait.

I'm curious about the "Breaking the Beam" part. It said that these shadow people have substance. Could ghosts have a new element in them? I need a brave elemental scientist with me to collect data for me. In order to do that, I have to find a ghost. I have a little dog, but I definitely don't want viont ghosts around him. I'll have paranormal scientists with me too. I also want to investigate the popping noise someone talked about. One of my cousins was researching on ghosts. That's when I thought, "What if there's ghosts?" That's I'mm interested.

Hey Aura! I think that UFO in the video look like a bird...On Mars! lol Why would a bird live on Mars? Honestly, if the UFOs are smart enough, they wouldn't land, especially not on Iran. Some humans are violent. I wouldn't land if I were them. I would just hover and watch.

Aura said...

Hi Cameron :) Thanks for your comments and for stopping by! I think there are powerful energies that surround us - offering protection. A lot of UFO's do just that - hover and watch. They must just shake their heads at the many earthlings destroying everything and anything they touch. As for the Shadow People, they're everywhere and more and more people are seeing them. Veil's lifting ;) Buy a copy of Children of the Grave over at SpookedTV, Good stuff- will leave you sleeping with the lights on, lol!

Is there any activity during the day? Police make it impossible to explore at night
