Located at the southern portion in the Bridgewater Triangle. It is not a popular as Hockomock swamp, but could very well be the most feared. It is only in the deepest portions of the forest
that the victims of horrible atrosities have been discovered. The region is often used as a dumping ground for murder victims and gruesome santainic sacrofices. Many horrifying and disturbing
things have been discoverd: In 1970 through 1980, there had been a widesrpead speculation that a santanic cult had inhabited the forest, these rumors were partially substantiated when
police were approached by a number of individuals who claimed to have witnessed santanic activity in the forest. In 1978, the forest became infamous when the body of Mary Lou Arruda,
a fifteen year-old cheerleader, had been found tied tom a tree. In 1987, the body of a drifter mistaken for an undercover police officer, had been found murdered in the forest. In 1983,
the body of a newborn baby had been found dumped in a trashcan in a rest-stop along the way. In 1991, a fall river man had been found beaten and claimed to have been molested
by a santanic cult. In 1996, hazardous waste was found dumped in the fall river portion of the forest. In 2001, two men were found shot to death on Bell Rock Road, whitch runs through
the forest.

I do not think this post is getting the attention it deserves.

Anyways, I think I will go search on crimelibrary and see if there is any records on there.

Post any extra info if you can!

I live in Massachusetts and hadn't heard of the Hockomock until I became a Sasquatch researcher. So I learned about a few sightings in the swamp, but until I saw a video on Cryptomundo, I didn't realize the amount of murders, and dumped bodies that had been found there. I tell ya, when I go out there for my research, I'm definately going to be carrying my handgun.

Wiki

ControversiesThe Freetown State forest has suffered from a number of incidents since the 1970s with varying degrees of publication.




[edit] Cult rumors
Throughout the late 1970s and 1980s, there was widespread speculation that a Satanic cult inhabited the forest. These rumours were partially substantiated in 1980 when police were approached by individuals who claimed to have witnessed cult activity.[7]




[edit] Mary Lou Arruda
In November, 1978, the forest became infamous when the body of Mary Lou Arruda, a 15-year-old cheerleader abducted from Raynham, Massachusetts that September, was discovered tied to a tree. James M. Kater of Brockton, previously convicted of kidnapping in 1967, was convicted of the kidnapping and murder of Arruda in 1979.[8] The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court overturned the verdict, and he was convicted again in 1986. The verdict once again overturned, he was retried in 1992, with that attempt ending in a mistrial.

Kater was tried for the fourth time in 1996, and his conviction was upheld in 2000.[9] In the 1996 trial, the defense charged that police had withheld information relating to cult activity in September, 1978, which it claimed could have provided an alternative to Kater.[10]




[<A title="Edit section: 2001 double homicide" href="http://en.wikipedia....ection=6">edit] 2001 double homicide
In 2001, two men were found shot to death on Bell Rock Road, which runs through the forest connecting Assonet and Fall River.[11]




[edit] Timeline of other issues
  • In 1996, hazardous waste was found dumped in the Fall River portion of the forest.[14]
  • In 1998, a teenager from New Bedford was found beaten in the vicinity of the forest after having been left there.[15]
  • In the spring of 2006, a number of domesticated dogs in various states of aggressiveness were found abandoned in the state forest.[16]
  • In the summer of 2006, an emu was discovered roaming southeastern Massachusetts, and was periodically spotted in the forest.[17]
Just Google Freetown State Forest. There is a lot of great reading about that place!  Thanks for the post about it Massquatch.

It's not just the murders and cults ya have to worry about, there has been everything from ravenous red-eyed wolves, ghostly indian spirits, UFOs, and snakes as thick as tree trunks seen there...

i happen to live in freetown, massachusetts.  the state forest is about 50 feet across the street from my house (literally).  the wikipedia article about the state forest isnt exactly complete, and there are many things that it does not mention.  for example, in december of 2005, a man wearing no clothes and with multiple knife wounds in the abdomen ran out of the state forest and into house (about 6 houses down from me) urging the occupents to call the police.  he has as of yet stated who attacked him.  there have also been animal mutilations in the state forest, primarily cows, which has been attributed to cult activity.  i doubt this is true, but a neighbor of mine told me about a girl scout camp in the state forest that "dissappeared" over night in the 70s.  he has taken me to the alleged "remains" of the girl scout camp, and it did in fact look like there had once been a girl scout camp there, but again i doubt the factuality of this story.    as for the bridgewater triangle, my father lives in dighton massachusetts, which is considered to be part of the triangle.  i have witnessed something paranormal in dighton, that could very well indeed be classified as a ufo (ask if you want to hear about this).  i have also seen the dighton rock (in its own little museum) which is a large boulder that has an unkown writing carved into it.  many people claim it is from aliens, but historians say it closely resembles ancient phoenician script (the phoenicia was an empire in western asia from 3500 years ago, god knows how they got here).  other theories include the norse, native americans, portuguese, and chinese.  in long pond, freetown, a friend of mine and have witnessed something that we will not forget for the rest of our lives (very long story, ask if you want to hear it).  i would be happy to answer any questions regarding the bridgewater triangle or the state forest.

well, ok here is the story.  the following events happened (if i recall correctly) on the evening of friday october 19th 2006.   i was at my friend adam foley's house on long pond (part of the "bridgewater triangle") having a jam session.  i looked out the window sometime during the jam in the afternoon, and being quite adept at weather forcasting, could tell that some bad weather was on the way.  at around 5:30 PM, a horrific wind storm kicked up with winds around 30-50 mph.  in less than half an hour, the power went out.  this ended our jam, so we decided to go outside and walk around the neighborhood.  it was VERY dark and windy, and some heavy items had been tossed into the middle of the road.  across the pond, the houses on the other side had their lights flickering rapidly because of the wind storm.  after wandering around the lakeside neighborhood for about an hour, we noticed a light on the road coming toward us very slowly from about 200 feet away.  we had seen a few cars on the road during that evening, but for some reason, we ran away from that one and headed toward the pond's beach (which is moderately wooded).  i still cant remember why, but we hid behind the trees at the beach.  sure enough, after about two minutes the vehicle pulled up alongside the beach, making no noise whatsoever.  we knew this was no car, but we couldn't make it out because it was 7 PM in october with very thick clouds and a neighborhood with no lights on.  we suspected it was a person or a bike, but it seemed to be larger than a minivan.  it went back and forth on the road next to the beach, noiseless, with very bright headlights turned to the left scanning the beach.  at times, it moved as if it were multiple vehicles and not one.  it stayed there for more than 10 minutes scanning the trees in the beach where we were hiding before it left.  once it did leave, adam and i waited a moment and then ran to the t-intersection where it headed in an attempt to follow it.  the vehicle had been moving very slowly and you could see each way down the intersection fairly far, but we saw no trace of the vehicle (it had very bright headlights).  i havent even got to the weirrd part yet.   adam and i walked back to the road adjacent to the beach where to vehicle was, hoping to learn something.  we began talking, and then over the lake, i saw the strangest thing i will ever hope to see.  this is what i saw:

looking east-northeast across the pond from the north-facing beach, on the horizon i saw an extremely bright flickering of a very large portion of the sky.  this was like seeing a flicker of a lightning bolt on the horizon, except much MUCH brighter and it was a variety of colors.  it flickered about 10 colors in about 1 and a half seconds and then stopped.  it was much too bright to have been anything man made, and there was no possible way this was lightning.

i immediately turned adam around, who was facing the wrong way.  he had turned too late and hadn't seen it.  very fortunately, the same thing occured AGAIN.  adam immediately yelled something along the lines of "holy f***ing sh*t,".  once sure i wasn't hallucinating (or the only one anyway) we began to run away as fast as our legs could carry us.  my mind was racing, and i could tell i had little conscious control over my body.  one thing was apparent: i was scared out of my mind.  out of about 30 seconds of sprinting, we both realized that we were fools from running away from something so (for lack of a better word) amazing.  i looked past the houses and trees of the neighborhood and saw that portion of the sky flicker again.  we ran back to the beach, but about 10 seconds before we got there, the sky flickered for the last time.  we just sat at the beach for about half an hour hoping to see it again.  during that time, we noticed a very large number of jets fill the night sky toward where we saw the phenomena.  they seemed to be coming from the east, toward otis airforce base on cape cod.  we now realized we weren't the only ones who saw it.  we also began seeing some very odd lights in the sky behaving strangely.  because of this, we ran back to adam's house to fetch adam's digital video camera to record the peculiar lights we were seeing.  after about two minutes, we returned to find about 6 people standing on the beach where we were moments before.  once they heard us approach, they all scattered radially, one of them passing strangely close to me and snickering.  we then stood on the beach recording the lights in the sky.  i will describe the three most notable lights, though few were caught on tape.  appearing on the north-northeast horizon i saw a large orange-red fire ball appear suddenly moving little and then fading.  this was caught on tape only as a white dot.  another one appeared in the same general area and hovered around for while, flickered, and dissappeared to the right in a long horizontal line of light.  the third was only seen when we later re-examined the tape and makes it very clear that this is not a conventional aircraft.  while keeping the camera fixed on one of the jets, a dot can be seen appearing below the jet and ascending diagonally upward very quickly relative to the jet.  after that, we saw little else, and the wind storm eventually calmed down and the power returned to the neighborhood.  interestingly, the houses on the other side of the pond still had flickering house lights after more than two hours of power trouble.  

on a separate note, the previous two years on almost EXACTLY the same date (+/- two days), i had also seen strange lights in the sky in carver, massachusetts (the same direction as the phenomena seen this strange night).  we have burned the camera footage to DVD but have yet to upload to the internet.  when we do, i will post a link.  neither me nor adam know what exactly we saw that night, but we do know one thing: we will never forget it.

jmakobi, very interesting story. I hope you upload that vid, it sounds intense. The 6 people scattering off (and the one snickering) is also quite an interesting factor. Was there anything peculiar about them by any chance?

they were talking very quietly but i couldnt understand what they were saying, and some were carrying buckets.  the strangest part was that they didnt leave in a group, but they instead went in separate directions.

a good source for looking for the records of activity in the freetown state forest would be searching the archives on southcoasttoday.com, the website for the newspaper my father works for, the new bedford standard-times
