    UK - Christine Darby, 7, abducted & murdered, Walsall, 19 Aug 1967

    There's an earlier thread about the ghostly side of this topic; but it avoids the alleged occurrence's true, truly horrible, backstory, in effect treating child murder as an entree to whimsy. (Where are the emus of yesteryear? Gone, thank God.)

    It is certainly sad but the mystery of monsters in human form -- here, one Raymond Morris -- is always au courant, especially when accompanied by known legends of ghostly things; especially on a crime site in October nearing Halloween.

    In 1969, Raymond Morris was found guilty of raping and killing seven-year-old Christine Darby, though as the BBC reports, he was suspected of even more evil acts.
    ---
    Morris died in prison in 2014 when he was 84 years old. But some believe his tiny victims continue to haunt the place where he made their graves, and that their ghosts have terrifying blacked-out eyes. The Black-Eyed Child was (allegedly) spotted in Cannock Chase for the first time in three decades around the time of Morris’ death, which may or may not be coincidental.

    The stories of the horrors and their alleged aftermath:

    BBC:

    Child killer Raymond Morris 'guilty of more murders'

    Birmingham Mail:

    Black-eyed child returns to haunt Cannock Chase
