~# 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.

Vomiting, Disorientation and an Unseen Entity Assualt

You were right. This place is crazy!

We traveled over the hill for a night-time investigation, but in hindsite I don't think we were prepared for "The Canyon" physical impact on the team.

We arrived at about 1030pm and were a bit dismayed by the highway noise. Didn't seem very spooky. Then Roger said he didn't feel good. Said he felt dizzy and squatted down. We were down by some big rocks on the dirt path at this point.

I figured he was screwing around like usual, but then he started moaning and spitting. We asked him if he wanted to go back up to the van but he got down on his hands an knees and started vomiting. Heidi was sitting with Roger when we heard fairly loud footfalls coming down the path. At this point I figured the investigation was over as Roger was fully sick and trying to lay down in the dirt and barf.

I flicked on my flashlight, expecting to see a late night jogger or dog walker, but there was nothing. The footsteps got louder and I started to speak up to the others when something hit me square on the chest knocking me flat on my ass.

I caught of whiff of rot and decay as Heidi started screaming. My flashlight had gone off and was lost in the dark somewhere. I could hear some heavy breathing sounds, and by this point I was staring to lose it too. I could hear the rush of blood in my ears and I was starting to have flashbacks to Iraq.

We managed to quickly get Roger on his feet and up the hill to the van. I remember thinking that I did not want to look back into the darkness as I didn't want to know what might be standing there.

Roger recovered over the next hour, but insists that he didn't fall apart like he did. Heidi doesn't want to talk about what happened, and says she is done with Para investigating.

I am pretty psyched about the experience, but think I might bring a Priest with me if we ever attempt a Robb investigation again.
