Mysterious crying girl in Çorum cemetery found

A mysterious crying girl in a cemetery, who had prompted panic among locals in the Central Anatolian province of Çorum, was found on May 11, the Çorum Governor’s Office has announced.

The girl is living with her family and reportedly had psychological issues, occasionally escaping from home and visiting the cemetery, according to a statement from the Governor’s Office.

No administrative or judicial action is being taken against the girl, it added.

On April 26, witnesses reported a teenage girl crying and speaking to herself at one of the graves. The next day, workers at the cemetery found the girl but then she disappeared, after which they left a note on the grave saying they could help her. They also informed police about a “ghostly image” in the area.

Locals had started to keep watch every night in the area to find the girl, with local tradesman even taking advantage of the interest by setting up stall in the area around the cemetery.

Surveillance cameras were mounted around the grave that the girl had been seen crying on, but no trace of the girl was seen on any of the video footage.

Locals said the girl repeatedly came to the grave to cry and managed to escape officials each time and disappear into the shadows of the cemetery.

Police said the girl was around 15 years old, dressed in black and wearing red shoes, crying on the grave of a woman who died in 1982.
