Spooky Stories And Folklore On Thursday's Access Utah
A while back on Access Utah, Glen in the Uintah Basin shared this story: “I used to haul crude oil from oil wells. We have an area in central Duchesne County called the Koch Field. It was originally operated by the infamous Koch brothers' business and developed in the 1970s and early 80s. The Koch field is very remote and quite rugged. Many oilfield workers claimed to have seen a ‘headless horseman.’ I first heard about this when I was dispatched to a load out in the field probably in 1999. Legend has it that the local Natives beheaded a party of Spanish prospectors and this headless horseman is one of them. Many of my former crude haulers refuse to go into the Koch Field at night.”
Thursday, on the day before Halloween, we’ll invite you to share your scary story. We’ll be joined by storyteller Daniel Bishop; and USU Folklorist Lynne McNeill.
