~# 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.

Shadowman and Chopping Sound

We had nothing to do last night so we went down to the canyon to see if this stuff is true.
First of all, the feeling of dread was clearly there foe us, although I wasn't sure if we were just making it up in our heads. After about 20 minues of nothing, a gust of wind blew down the canyon and rustled up the leaves a bit.

Then my brother spotted what looked like a shadow moving down along the canyon bottom. It moved back and forth but definitely deliberately down the canyon along the creek until it disappeared behind some trees. We were more excited than scared at that point, but not long later we heard what sounded like a chopping sound coming from the other side of the bridge. We tried to hike further down but it was very dark and very overgrown. The chopping sounds was like a hand ax whacking at a wet rotting tree, I suspect it is what a person being chopped up might sound like, and it was rather sickening.

After a bit, the chopping stopped and we heard voices coming from down canyon where the noise had come from. It sounded like a woman and two men arguing, but was very faint. Soon it stopped and we went to get coffee.

A very interesting night!
