Slagle Cemetery/Bridge
Chillicothe, Mo 64601

County: Livingston County
WebSite: None

Mr. Slagle was one of the first settlers in Livingston County. He built a mill and was a wealthy man. He had several wives and several children, but most of them died mysteriously. Mr. Slagle is said to have murdered them all, but since there was no law in Livingston County yet, he was never officially charged. He was also responsible for the first reported murder in Livingston County. The body of the man he murdered is buried beneath the road that runs past the cemetery. The graves of his wives and children are still there along with his own, and the cemetery is said to be haunted. There is also a very old bridge on the property which is said to be haunted. One of the wives supposedly hung herself from the bridge after the mysterious death of one of her children. There are satanic symbols painted on the bridge, and it is very spooky. There have been several people who have been mysteriously pushed off the bridge and injured when no one was standing around. It used to be a place where teenagers hung out at night, but too many people have been injured and it is now off limits. The current owners of the property have reported hearing mysterious whispers on the bridge and sightings of Mr. Slagle are very common around the cemetery and where the mill stood. The submitter claims to have a picture that they took of the cemetery on a clear night, but on the picture it looks like it is snowing. There are dozens of small orbs and also the transparent figure of a young woman in an old fashioned dress. December update: The bridge was torn down

I also live in Chillicothe and this article is totally fake. None of the street names or the town layout is even correct.

I am currently a junior at chillicothe high school and live near the road to go out to Slagles Cemetary, the roads on the map are completly wrong, the story has bits and pieces of the truth but is mostly incorrect.

I really ewant to go down to the bridge site and check it out!! My step dad's friend in high school was pushed off the bridge when no one was standing around. He had 2 broken arms and a fracterd leg. And once my step dad was driving down the road when one of Mill Slagle's kids tombstone appered in the back of his car!!! Well I really want to hear more though, but I think it's really true!! Also my friend is in a picture with her cousin and he is standing in the backround!!! And she aslo told me that his kid's had a batman car and no one could ever find it and it appered in her cousin's basement driving around by itself!!!They also live down the road from the cememtery and they aslo own the bridge site!!!

I have lived in chillicothe my whole life. When I was younger my brother, some friends and I went on a hay ride  to Slagle Cemetery our tractor died so we walked to our cousins house just up the rode. We were gone about an hour maybe less the wagon was in front of the tractor. We had to jump start the tractor to get it started . We saw the  rope hanging off the bridge.
