Maybe this is why? <img src="http://www.unexplain..._DIR#>/huh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":huh:" border="0" alt="huh.gif" /> Two people were murdered behind the cemetery where you felt watched.

<i>This is an old cemetery on Eldridge Parkway at Enclave Parkway. The most recent grave is from circa 1916. I don't know who any of these people were or why they forever rest in their own little plot for all time. This is now a pocket park owned by Harris County. It was also this area that on August 22, 1990, the bodies of Cheryl Henry and Andy Atkinson were found. They went out to Bayou Mama's at Westheimer and Gessner and never came home. <u>Her body was found with hands bound behind her and her throat cut as was his</u>. On March of 2001, Houston Police Homicide detectives received a handwritten letter that asked for $100,000 in exchange for the identity of the killer. However, still today, the case remains free and some maniac got away with a double murder.</i>

Very, very interesting! I haven't been on here in awhile and it's good to see this topic is still going. Thank you for the information.  <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/original.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="original.gif" />


OMG.. This made my stomach drop. I posted about this place recently, about how creepy it was. I didn't know there had been a double murder there. Oh gees, I feel weird....  :wacko:

Don't mistake coincidance for fate.

I posted about this and the story above here.I'm sorry if this is not allowed, I find it easier than retyping it.

Now aside from ghosts, this is really scary. I live in the area I have been on this road often. I looked it up last night, just different wrecks, and it's insane there is a fatality almost every month! Why hasn't someone done something about this road?? There is too many deaths here. You would figure they would have put up bright lights, more signs, something. I'm totally going to avoid this road by all means. I'm going to look into who I need to contact to about this. This is insane.

Don't mistake coincidance for fate.

I lived in that area when i was still at my parents place...there were a number of times I used patterson to cut down to get to hwy 6...i've never stopped, but, I always got really funny feelings down that road...feelings of sadness.  It was always very very dark...for being such a straight road, and a straight shot to hwy 6, i would think you could see the traffic to the next major road pretty well, but I could never see anything until getting right upon hwy 6...
i pick paranormal vibes up naturally since early childhood, so when there is something there, I sense it...going down this road, i've always been alone, so I would not stop, but I can say...there really is something there.

Patterson road is very creepy, specially the creek. But I never felt the tapping that people talk about, or anything like that.

this is regarding blue light cemetery and bear creek area ...i do a lot of history investigations and the bear creek /blue light cemetery claims being a battle sight during the civil war era, i never came up with any info stating that this location ever seen a battle....there are only three locations that are documented....the battle of sabine pass, galveston, and palmetto ranch "brownsville". now the german community that settled in bear creek area may have been union sympathizers and may have had a few run in's or skirmishes with the confederates soldiers. if anybody have more info on this other than rumors or supposed to be please send it my way....i would like to research it more.....i have been investigating the area for paranormal activity and it is a hotbed of activity.   :-)

Some links to the accidents......

So far now, I have witnessed 6 of them on this road. All deaths are mysterious because thses people die from head on collisions, but how when drivers have half a mile of visibility?

http://www.houstontx.../nr022705-1.htm

And another one within a quarter mile..

http://www.houstontx.../nr022205-3.htm

Notice the dates of the accidents.

There was a new fatal accident just this past weekend involving an 18 wheeler that apparently crashed, but it was more of a freak accident.

You've personally witnessed 6 accidents???

I grew up in spring branch near  shadow oaks elementary. I remember going out and picking shrooms near blue light cemetery in the early eighties. There was holes dug everywhere from looters? Does anyone recall the large pine tree with yellow paint saying BEWARE. Scared the **** out of me as a kid. We got lost out there and came across a brick spiral used for sacrafices. There were hypodermic needles everywhere there. Next to it was an old brick water well full of the needles. We had to use the planes landing at the airport to find our way home. Cool memories

I'm so glad I came across this thread...

I have always been interested in ghosts/hauntings, mainly because my mom and sister have seen things, but never saw anything myself until this past weekend.

I can't remember what got me looking into this, but I was researching places that people claim are haunted in the Houston area (I live in Sugar Land) when I came across the stories of Patterson Road/Blue light cemetary. I was pretty intrigued by what everyone was saying, so this past Friday night a couple of friends and I decided to check the place out. Now let me just say, this road is PITCH BLACK at night. Creepy as ****. Turning from Eldridge onto Patterson road, we were like "You've got to be effing kidding me..." We drove slow, mainly because there were a few other cars parked there. We were too creeped out at first to stop on the bridge (there are 2, the one crossing over Lagham Creek is the one that has a lot of activity) and drove until we reached Hwy 6. We decided to turn around though and actually stop on the bridge, like everyone says to do. The 3 of us were sitting there, creeped out because we kept thinking we were seeing things. There a lot of deer in this area, and we'd jump if we saw one prance across the street. We didn't really hear any tapping noises on the car, and we dismissed our feelings of unease pretty quickly. We were there about 5 minutes or so before we decided to leave. We felt disappointed, but hey, it was worth a try. We went to a gas station on Hwy 6 (having to go down Patterson a 3rd time) and then realized we would need to head down Patterson AGAIN to get to Eldridge. My friend who was driving decided that she wanted to stop on the bridge another time, just to give it one last shot. By this time, we were pretty relaxed. She turned off the car and lights and we just let our eyes adjust to the darkness. I wasn't really expecting to see anything at this point, but I kept my eyes toward the front of the car. Now, this is where I have trouble explaining: I saw feet walking towards the center of the bridge that were very clearly human feet. It was about a car length away. I dismissed the idea of it being another deer because it wouldve had to of climbed over the guardrail, and there is a creek below... And before I could say anything, there was a car coming from the other side of Patterson. The light that was emitted from their headlights bounced off of our headlights(which were off) and we ALL saw a full black apparation blocking a portion of the light, much closer to our car. We all started freaking out, my friend tried to start the car and IT WOULDN'T START! Finally, after a couple of tries, we were able to get it started and get out of there. Man, we all had goosebumps and the hair on the back of our heads was up. It was quite an experience, for us to be able to see what other people have seen on Patterson. I still want to visit the Blue Light Cemetary, but that will have to wait until next weekend :)

All I can say is seeing really is believing. Any skeptic can come on here and tell me I'm wrong, that what I saw doesn't coincide with the laws of physics, or that I didn't see anything at all. No, I don't have proof that I really saw what I saw, except for the fact that 2 other people saw the exact same thing. I'd love to go back this weekend and try to get some pictures, I'll be sure to post!

I drive on this road fairly often since I work in Park 10. It seems as though I need to take another route!!


Then take Clay Rd. ...but the traffic is always congested. I still continue this route and have done so for the last 13 years. None of this happend before the murder that took place there. The body of the victim was of a female doctor found badly decomposed by the pond near the Conoco by the Omni Hotel, but on the other side of the hump. There should still be a reef hanging on the barb wire fence. Her body was there for a week and then I recalled the reason why I smelt the stench of road kill there for a week. I even had a blow out and changed my tire on the striped part of the bridge.... only 40 yards from the dead body. I can not say that I felt anything weird, though now I do. I often still take nightly jogs down this way to I-10. It's scary because there are no lights through this wooded area for miles so I jog in pitch black darkness, letting my eyes adjust to the moon.

Any idea what the doctors name was?  I'm totally intrigued by this Eldridge / Patterson thing, and wanted to dig in a little deeper.  Can't seem to find anything on the doctor though.  I work on Eldridge close to this

I've been intrigued by this whole Patterson/Bear Creek story as well for some quite some time. I've been up and down Patterson Rd. and have made several trips to the so-called Blue Light Cemetery, and while interesting, have never came across anything unusual. As for as your question, the only thing I could manage to come across during my research into this matter is this: http://www.chron.com...hoolteache.html, and also this: http://www.houstontx.../nr051006-4.htm.

The woman murdered here seems to fit the bill of the case that the previous posters were referring to: The heavily wooded area of the 1500 block of Eldrige Pkwy near Addicks Dam, not to far from the Conoco building and Omni Hotel, maybe a couple miles or so down from Patterson Rd, and back in 2006 (damn this thread is old). However the details about her being a doctor (unless maybe they meant PhD kind of doctor) and the body decomposing for several weeks before being found is inconsistent according to the links that I provided. Apparently she was a school teacher, and her body was found only a day after she was murdered. Her car was stolen and later recovered about month later (matching what the other poster said about it being a carjacking), along with the killer. But even though those minor details are off this has to be the same case due to everything else matching up perfectly.

Hey all,

Great thread you have here and lots of interesting info. Ive been doing research for a few years, putting together info on haunted spots in the Houston area for a ghost hunt. It's something I always wanted to do, but never seem to get it together and make it happen.

Ive been considering a trip out to this area but it's not close and my friend with his CHL license is usually busy. Im not going out to do research in this spot alone and unarmed during the dead time hours. Im more concerned about Houston's predatory human population, rather than spirits or unexplained events.

I have a bit of info to add that I found online regarding a battle at Bear Creek during the Civil War Era.


By Jean West/2009
99th Illinois Infantry
September 8,1862 was sent to Rolla, Mo., thence, September 17, to Salem, Dent county, thence, November 20, to Houston, Texas. Was assigned to the Brigade of Brigadier General Fitz Henry Warren. Was engaged in a skirmish at Bear Creek, losing 1 killed, 4 wounded and 1 taken prisoner.
