The girl in yellow, a murder victim, whose spirit is still seen in Indiana University, Bloomington; the glowing male apparition of Baums Bridge Inn Bar & Restaurant in Kouts, which may be seen through a window (hope that it doesn't see you, though, as it can move with uncanny speed); the spectre of Richard Dorson who, appropriately, founded Indiana University's Folklore Institute and now haunts the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology on North Fess Avenue, Bloomington; strange stories about how mysterious boulders reached the crowns of trees (as high as eighty feet up) in Yellowwood State Forest; Oscar, the Beast of Busco, said to be a gigantic snapping turtle encountered near Churubusco; the crying of ghostly babies heard in Indiana University's Career Development Center on North Jordan Avenue, Bloomington, which was once a fraternity house and also the site of an illegal abortion clinic; and hauntings of the Crump Theatre in Columbus, including the spectre of a child, unexplained voices in the nursing area and the ghost of a man, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Indiana.
