Episode 1: A Horrible Presence

Braley Pond is a 4-and-a-half acre recreational area located in the George Washington and Jefferson National Forest — just 30 minutes west of Staunton, Virginia. 


On May 22, 2003, 19-year-old Christopher S. Kennedy was murdered by local gang members. Two of the members lured Kennedy to Braley Pond, stabbed him 13 times in the chest and back, and then dumped his body into the water. 

Six months later, Shea Willis and Chris Pugh, two local paranormal investigators, visited Braley Pond to look into rumors of strange occurrences happening there - ghostly figures hovering above the water, the sounds of children laughing at night, and an evil, unexplainable presence lurking there. 

What they found was unlike anything they could have ever imagined.
