The library is supposed to be a peaceful place. But sometimes it can’t be avoided that horrific things could happen. Like someone being murdered without anybody noticing it. These things usually happen in the back corner where the most boring books are kept. Some legends say evil spirits do the killing while other legends say serial killers are on the loose. Nobody hears anything when someone dies, which makes it even scarier.

Back in 1969, a female was killed by a stab wound to the chest. She told her friends she was going to the library to do research on a paper, but she never came back. No one heard anything during the murder and her body wasn’t discovered until a while later. No one knows who killed her and why.
