I bookmarked this blog post from horror author Joe Hill a few years ago, and I come back to re-read it every few months. The non-fiction premise: is there a connection between a famous unsolved New England murder and the filming of JAWS?
The press dubbed her the Lady of the Dunes and at the time of this writing, over 40 years later, no one has ever claimed her. She remains without a name or a history. Her killer has never been identified.
[And] in all the time since her death not one person has stepped forward to say, “I saw her. I met her a few weeks before she was found. I can tell you her name.”
But what if we’ve all seen her? What if she’s been in front of us for decades and we just never noticed?
Who’s in the mood for a ghost story?
So let’s talk about JAWS.
