Where did I see blood streaked on the wall? It was not the garlic house, but a mobile home that had very recently been moved onto another lot on Main Street where afterwards a carwash once stood for many years. This was the only carwash in Loreauville, when car washes were a new thing. The carwash was removed but the slab still remains today. Here’s a screenshot of the location, as near as I can tell from google maps:
I mention the carwash because if anyone is looking for a missing body, a recent news article from Jalisco, Mexico tells us of a butcher who was chopping up women and burying bone fragments under a cement slab.
I don’t remember if Linda was the mother of Jerry. I remember her though, and I know that it was her blood on the living room wall. I was not told anything beyond what I saw with my own eyes. I was too young to be told. I do remember that she was living there with Kearney., but neither of them were there when I was there and everyone was whispering. It was my understanding that the bedroom was worse. This was around 1964.
I’m posting this for the record. I’ve been meditating on that memory.
This is what Linda looked liked.
