this is the location where Susan Smith rolled her car in the lake with her children strapped in. after the car was recovered with the children`s bodies, people went down to look & a memorial was erected. a family had gone to the lake to look their suv was parked on the boat ramp in park when it rolled into the lake drowning them. some say that smith`s children are still there looking for someone to play with. The lake has since been closed

I think that this was a very tragic thing to happen. I live only30 miles from this lake and I have gone and just wondered what these boys would be like today ... I hope that this woman never gets out of jail ..

I think it is so weird that they say 10 people went back to the lake in 96, and 7 of them were children why couldn't an adult break a window or something? they had plenty of time to get everyone out!!! It sounds very fishy to me if I was a prosecutor I would've taken this one to court!!! No coincidence, another case of murder at John D. Long Lake.

I feel bad going out there to see if it is "haunted" but I do agree it was VERY tragic and I remember hearing about this when I was 8 years old. I will check it out and see if it is haunted tonight and see what happens.

I went to the lake last night and there was nothing there. No memorial or anything. Is there more than one boat ramp at the lake?

Let me clear somethings up. I live in Union and have been to this lake many times. At the time of Susan Smith there was 2 boat rams at this lake one on each side of the lake. After the deaths at the lake the boat ramp that Susan Smith used was removed. People wanting to put a boat in had to drive arount and use the boat ramp at the other side of the lake. One evening I had been fishing at the lake. I knew my truck was low on gas but I didn't know it wasn't going to start when I got ready to leave the lake. To make a long story short I was stuck there for a while after dark wanting on some gas to be brought to me. While I was there I did see strange light moving all kinda ways in the sky!!! But I have never seen a ghost believe me I have searched for ghost for years and have seen strange things but never a ghost!! Dave

i live exactly .5 miles from this lake i can walk through my woods and come out at this lake and i believe it is haunted and no the 10 people that were involved in the last drowning were not all kids there were 4 kids and 3 adults that drowned and the other 3 tried to save them but when water is creating pressure you cant break a window it is a great fishing lake there are some monster bass i go to the lake every day and just about every night so for everyone that dont know what there talking about do some research on it

Hmmm...I just moved right beside this lake. I take my boys fishing there and my wife and I go there to burn. We've never seen anything...NOTHING. Its not haunted...just a place where a stupid redneck thought she could discreetly dispose of her children and not get caught.
