The dead man’s ghost is possessed by a pig who was feasting on his body as it sat on the edge of the water waiting to be retrieved by the police. Fishermen in the area won’t eat anything caught there or fish when the sun goes down because of the hog-like screams that come from the glowing specter who floats on the water. If this all makes perfect sense, you must live in Florida.
Join the Trippers as they cross another bridge onto Marco Island to sit by the Turtle and talk about trestles. First, it’s off to Hillsborough County to the lost town of Boyette where people in the 1960s and 1970s would spend Friday the 13th looking for a dead bridge. Then the focus comes back to Marco and a forgotten haunted legend with a backstory so crazy it had to happen in the Sunshine State.
