Is This the Most Haunted Road in El Paso County?
There's a road in Horizon City where it's said a phantom drifter is often seen, and where an unknown number of bodies are supposedly buried along the route.
During the day, Ascencion Blvd looks like any other long stretch of desolate road outside El Paso's city limits.
But at night, when its pitch black and your car headlights are one of the few light sources, the road takes on a spooky, sometimes sinister feel.
Legend has it the seemingly innocent rural road has a dark and deadly past. Lost El Paso Paranormal chronicled its alleged haunting in a recent Facebook post.
They say that if you drive down this road at night, as you approach Mountain View High School you may see a ghostly figure of a young man appear, walking along the roadside. Drivers have often pulled over to offer the fellow a ride, or some assistance, only to be shocked to see him fade into the desert night with no explanation.
Although it reads like a campfire tale that's been around for years, it is claimed there is documentation of these types of sightings dating back a few decades.
Local police allegedly have multiple reports on file from people who called them out of concern after they slowed or turned around to offer a man help only to discover he had vanished into thin air.
Nothing but an urban legend? We report, you decide!
