The Curse of Micah Rood

Based on an 17th Century legend from Norwich, Connecticut, Micah Rood is a recluse who cherishes his privacy and his precious apple orchard. When a wily peddler stays the night, Rood accuses him of stealing his apples and commits a violent deed that soon taints the fruit of his orchard with the blood of guilt.

2008 Appearances included:

                                                      Here’s a snippet: “Ghost hunters should always scout out a potential field location during the daylight if possible. If you’re exploring a cemetery, look for “No trespassing” signs or barriers, things like small or worn head and footstones that can pose potential trip hazards - nobody wants to end up in an open grave!”
