reports of ghostly happenings in the stock rooms of this former Zody's.
It is believed that a double murder/suicide took place somewhere in the
upstairs stockroom. Apparently, a couple worked together for Zody's and
the boyfriend caught his girlfriend in a compromising situation with
another male employee. The enraged boyfriend located a box cutter and
slashed the two to death. He then slashed his own wrists and carotid
artery. After several reports from employees of unusual activity, Kmart
headquarters in Michigan has admitted to hiring paranormal/paraphysical
investigators to conduct investigations into the incident. The
conclusion was that indeed the building was occupied by several
spirits. The investigators concluded that four different spirits dwell
throughout the building. The fourth has not been linked to any known
incident that may have occurred and thus is unknown for its presence.
Kmart has remained quiet on the findings of this investigation and
resources revealed that employees of this store are not advised of this
activity. Prior to changing over to Kmart, Zody's employees reported
seeing a man walking about in the stockroom. A woman is also seen
running and sometimes screams are heard. In one case, an overnight
employee sustained a 7 inch laceration while working in the stockroom.
Zody's management insisted that the incident was just an accident
caused by falling boxes that were stacked too high, but resources close
to the victim tell another tale. A paring knife mysteriously came
across the room and cut the employee across the chest. No one was seen
in the area. The victim survived his wounds, but obviously resigned
from the company. Sightings and sounds have been reported throughout
the years, but no one else has been physically attacked since.

Man's Park - "Old Quaker cemetery whose
decedent's are long since dead has been converted into a park. The

of the dead is located in the second half of the park. Often the park
is covered by a mysterious fog patch that does not extend past the
roads to the houses on all sides. The fog also does not cover the road
that dissects the two halves of the park. Locals say that the fog is
the combined anger of the dead at the removal of the headstones. The
park has very few visitors per year. Records of this information was
once located in the old Whittier museum record room. Additional roomers
include the bodies being moved to Rose Hills Cemetery, joggers reported
the feeling of being watched, dead cats mysteriously found on the

Whittier - King
Richards Antique Center. Off Whittier Blvd. near Historic Whittier
district. Uptown. - large Building built
in 1903. Once used as an old Citrus packinghouse in the early 1900's.
Now housing a Antique Mall since 1979 with 4 floors inside. The former
Owners and Staff as well as the dealers experienced strange happenings.
Two the stories are that 2 citrus plant workers died tragically in the
mall. One story is that a worker had locked himself accidentally in the
old freezer room in the basement and passed away. Another is unknown
how but a worker died from machinery falling onto him in the back of
the bottom floor. Dark shadowy figures have been seen in closing time.
The cleaning crew has quit after hours when a woman cleaner screamed
from the bottom floor claiming she saw a black figure watching her.
Electrical appliances have sounded off with no batteries inside.
Pictures have fallen feet away from where they were hung. Saucers and
objects for sell have rolled or flung off onto the floors. A empty
space has got the most attention where stairs use to be, cold spots and
sensitive customers have felt a presence there. Curiously young
children who know nothing of the mall refuse sometimes to enter the
basement where the freezer accident occurred. King Richards is history
all around and the staff claims that they feel no threat from the
strange occurrences. Sometimes you just feel like they want to be
noticed or known. Oddly enough the happenings really become more active
around October through the holiday season. Its hard to separate the
occurrences said one worker. the Antique items that are brought in by
dealers some time hold a past with them as well. But for the feeling of
King Richards you see, to know the difference. No harm from these
ghost's just a remembrance of Whittiers History.
