Starved Rock has some interesting history. This area has been home to Native American Indians and was a stop on the Lewis and Clark expedition. Starved Rock gets it's name from a conflict between the Native tribes and the Illinois confederation ending in a mass starvation. There have been many tragedies here including multiple falls from the high cliffs resulting in injury, drowning, or death. The most horrifying deaths occurred on March 14, 1960, when three women were bound and beaten to death by a tree branch near the St. Louis Canyon. The killer was caught and sentenced to life in prison. Below is a photo of the women. Could one of them still be haunting the woods?
In the first picture no ghostly apparitions are seen but take a good look at the second one.
