Here’s a strange one from our friends at the Dallas Observer. Legend has it that the slaves who once labored in the fields of the LeBeau Plantation never entirely left. Cruelly mistreated, some to their death, their restless spirits wandered through their master’s sprawling mansion, taking revenge upon its occupants. One by one, the LeBeau family was driven mad, two of them hanging themselves in the upper rooms. Decades later, a little girl was mysteriously thrown to her death from a fourth-floor window.
Police say it was those stories that inspired Fort Worth’s Dusten Davnport, 31, to visit the house Thursday nights with a group of friends, get stoned then burn it down. Click over to the Dallas Observer for the details.
