When several teenagers vanish under mysterious circumstances, they blame the Scarecrow. But does anyone believe them?.


3. What happened at the farm?-August 4, 1973


Cody ​heard the wailing sirens of the Sheriff's car arrive at the farmhouse. "What's wrong?", he asked Lisa. Victor, Anne, Thad, and Brad, shuddered. "Something happened", Brad answered. Anne motioned with her right hand towards Staples Road. "There! A lot of kids make out there, you know". Lisa nodded. She didn't have a boyfriend; she wished she had. Cody was about to say something when his Grandfather spoke to Sheriff Reed Jenkins, Jr. "Sheriff...Can I help you?", he asked him. "Yeah, some kids were attacked by Staples Road, some miles from the farmhouse; Lynda Davies was scared. Ken Lowe, Jr died when someone smashed his car. According to Lynda's tale, it was a scarecrow", the Sheriff answered him. "Sheriff, I know Ken. He was a year older than me. He was going to be a football star. Is he dead?". The Sheriff nodded. Lisa shivered. "Sheriff, I have my granddaughter and grandson with me over the weekend. I don't want their trip to be ruined. Cody and Lisa are good kids". The Sheriff nodded, as his tan hat was full of rain. He took off the hat. "Nice to meet you two". Cody nodded. "Do you want some coffee, Sheriff?", he asked him. "Don't mind if I do". And, as the group discussed what happened, the weather turned a chilly fifty degrees...and falling overnight.
