About Debunking Cincinnati

Every city has its share of urban legends. But I live in Cincinnati, so I’m going to stick to the ones around here.

I was thinking back to those warm summer nights in high school when my friends and I had nothing better to do than look for trouble. With stories handed down to us, we borrowed our parents car to “go see a movie.” We drove all over the city looking for the ghost of some girl who died on her way to prom 30 years ago, either murdered by her boyfriend, killed in a horrific car accident, or other cliché of that sort.

We never found anything, but we kept going back.

I’m older and wiser now, though the  latter is debatable. I want to know more about these lame stories that were so compelling to me less than a decade ago. I’m sure none of them are legitimate; I’m not out to see if they are or not. I just want to know more about the urban legends, where they originated from, and what keeps them going strong.
