19. The Woman In White At White Rock Lake

The ghost of White Rock Lake is said to take on many forms ranging from the merely unnerving to the outright terrifying. If you are traveling near Dallas, it may be worth looking at the location….but if you see a woman in white, don’t let her get too close. Also, Matt is in fine -overthinking- form on this one.

This episode was written by Matthew Armstrong with music by Matthew Armstrong and production assistance from Kaylia Metcalfe. The graphic for this post was an original photo from dmagazine.com that was manipulated by the magic of Canva.
