The Real Life Murder that Became the Dead Woman’s Crossing Haunting in Southwest Oklahoma

If you thought the legend and scary tales of ‘Cry Baby Bridge’ were disturbing this century-plus old bridge named ‘Dead Woman’s Crossing’ in near Weatherford, Oklahoma is the stuff of pure nightmares. Unlike many other haunted bridges in the state and across the country that have dubious histories that flow from urban legends, the horrific story of ‘Dead Woman’s Crossing’ is actually true and absolutely terrifying.

The bridge is said to be haunted by the spirit of a woman who was killed and beheaded there back in the early 1900s. This murder actually took place and was never solved. Her restless spirit haunts the bridge and has been seen and heard by those brave or foolish enough to venture onto ‘Dead Woman’s Crossing.’
