The Vanishing Hitchhiker (or variations such as the ghostly hitchhiker, the disappearing hitchhiker, the phantom hitchhiker or simply the hitchhiker) story is an urban legend in which people traveling by vehicle meet with or are accompanied by a hitchhiker who subsequently vanishes without explanation, often from a moving vehicle.
This is the Buckley Family. The children’s names were Susan & John. As a Halloween joke, all the kids in the neighborhood were going to get a dummy & pretend to chop its head off. The Buckley children thought it would be hilarious to actually murder their mother, so they got an axe & slaughtered her. Once everyone figured out what they had done they called the police, but the kids were long gone. The only picture of them was this photo, taken by a trick-or- treater.
