The Bloody Bridge
The Route 66 bridge, spanning the Miami-Erie Canal, can be found on County Road 182 in Auglaize County and was the scene of a brutal murder way back in 1854.
A young couple in love, Jack Billings and Minnie Warren, met their doom one night at the hands of jealous rival, Bill Jones.
As they crossed the bridge, they were surpised by the axe-wielding Jones who jumped out of the shadows, swinging like crazy. One swing took Jack’s head clean off and Minnie, in a panic, fell over the side of the bridge and drowned.
Now, it is said, the bridge is haunted by the headless ghost of Jack Billings and the spirit of Minnie Warren can still be seen looking up at you from under the water below.
