~# The Scariest Place in the West #~

The Robb Canyon Story
In the early 1970's the mutilated bodies of a woman and 3 men were unearthed in this, at the time, remote high desert canyon in west Reno. To this day, the murders have not been
solved, and several visiting psychics feel the dead may be attempting to engage the living to solve their gruesome murders.Currently the canyon sits below a city park, and the mesa-top high above is speckled with houses. Over the years, residents have reported seeing strange lights and hearing very disturbing sounds, including a bloodcurdling scream, that "you will never forget for the rest of your life" echoing up the canyon. Although many long time residents of the area are reluctant to talk about what they have experienced, it is hard to not find someone without a personal account of paranormal activity. Although many other west Reno parks are crowded in summer evenings; you will never see any one in here after sunset.

Reportedly, both the Reno Police Department and Washoe County Sheriff's office no longer respond to calls to investigate the disturbances in the canyon, and oftenly say "just close your window and stay out of that canyon at night".
When paranormal investigators enter the canyon, they are hit with an immediate and overwhelming feeling of dread and fear, causing many "premature" endings to their investigations.

In a narrower part of the canyon up stream from the bridge, Shadow Men have appeared to both Investigators and fixed infrared cameras. The phenomena seem
to center around the large dead tree next to the creek. Many reports of a horrible and prolonged scream emulate from this general area.This is also the area that "cold spots" are usually reported and physical contact felt. EVP recordings made here have produced low level "chant-like" whisperings.In a terrifing session in the fall of 2005, Mike Blankenship, an Investigator from Kansas was knocked to the ground here and held down for a few seconds by an unseen and unrecorded force.

Infrared Video, Disturbing EVP's And the Chopping Sound

October 1, 2008

In our second attempt to investigate this site we hit the jackpot last night!
When we're here at last spring due to numerous equipment failures and a couple sick team members, we really were unable to investigate to any extent, and then of course, we managed to show up a day before a big snowstorm came in. This time we recorded what might be our teams best infrared video of an entity; some of the most disturbing EVP's we've ever heard and recorded digitall ythe infamous "chopping sounds" as well as a distant scream.

After we return to Richmond, I will get some links to you so that you can see what we caught in a canyon this week. The infrared video will certainly like the paranormal world on fire as it is the most amazing piece of footage I've ever seen. It's to have seen the image so clearly on the camera, while seeing no one walking along the creek in front of me was about the strangest experience I've ever had.

Thanks for your help with the info on the site!
We will be in touch.
