In November of 1973, 27-year-old Ernest Marshall was having relationship problems with his underaged, 16-year-old girlfriend Latitia Pierce. The two had met and started dating when she was 14, and they had a child together. This was to the disapproval of Latitia's mother, 40-year-old Mattie Pierce. On November 21, 1973, Ernest started consistently calling Latitia in the morning, trying to talk to her and work things out but she refused to speak to him. She was consistently called while at work, and eventually picked up to talk to him. Ernest told her he wanted to come to her house, and Latitia refused, but Ernest said he was going to go anyways. Later, Latitia and her mother Mattie returned to their home, 244 E 51st Pl N, along with a mutual friend named Leonard Jones. Later in the night, 3 of Ernest's friends drove him to the Pierce home. They parked outside and waited in the car while Ernest went up to the front door. Reportedly, the 3 did not have any knowledge of Ernest's intentions. Ernest stood on the porch and knocked on the front door. Meanwhile in the home, Latitia saw Ernest arriving at the home, so she woke her mother who was asleep. Mattie told Latitia to go grab her revolver, to which she did and gave it to Mattie, who put it in her robe pocket. Mattie opened the front door for Ernest upon hearing the knock, and they argued. Ernest asked if Leonard was at the home, and Mattie told him that he wasn't. Ernest said that he knew Leonard was at the home because he saw the car, and told Mattie he wanted to return shoes he borrowed from him. Ernest also argued with Mattie about trying to see him and Latitia's baby, to which he put no support for. The two were yelling at eachother, when Ernest pulled out a gun from his pocket. Witness testimonies vary, but it is said by Latitia that Ernest fired the first shot at the ground, prompting Mattie to tell her to call the police, and call Ernest crazy. Mattie pulled out her revolver and Ernest fired several shots through a screen door, fatally striking Mattie 4 or 5 times in the chest, wrist, and leg. Ernest then ran back to the car and was driven away. Police were called and Mattie was pronounced dead on scene at the entryway of the home. Ernest turned himself into police the next day, and was charged with murder. At a first trial, he was found guilty of manslaughter and given a 15 year prison term. However, a retrial was ordered as a prosecuting attorney was reported to have said slanderous or untrue remarks in a closing statement, during the first trial. At this retrial, despite the evidence, Ernest was acquitted of the manslaughter charge and freed on self-defense claims.

A maintenance guy that used to work at this location said this used to be a cotton field of slaves. And that near the pool in the back was where they killed them. One in particular still haunts though in the clubhouse, she wears a long white dress and he says he walks by the mirror and sees her on the corner of his eye when no one is there nor no objects similar, and sometimes he comes eye to eye, multiple other people working in maintenance or office have seen or don't believe but I first hand have gone through paranormal experiences at this place with another ghost I was once friendly with. He was alive and friendly I didn't get his name he was just a nearby neighbor but only a year later he died from a heart attack in building 14 in the back . Couple days later I heard something while doing work and the lights started flickering one by one, until it came to me I was trying to figure out what was happening but I had a strange feeling it wasn't friendly and wasn't him. Ive seen the girl in the black dress on the corner of my eye to. The street I live on which is where these paranormal things have been happening has had multiple deaths as its a side street so people speed and die from the trees. There's a person I feel like every month constantly hearing ambulances and about the new deaths. I put a random date I don't know when the slavery started happening here.
Unsolved Homicide; On January 7, 1987, a neighbor asked 38-year-old Candyce Woodward to babysit her child due to her being ill. Woodward accepted and looked over the 3-year-old girl at her duplex home, 3902 S 125th E Ave. Later that day, Woodward received a knock on her front door. When she answered, a man armed with a hammer forced his way into the residence. He began striking Woodward repeatedly with the hammer, ultimately beating her to death. The 3-year-old girl was left physically unharmed, but the man warned her not to move from the couch she was on because of "spiders and snakes." Woodward's husband came home from work later in the day and noticed the garage door open. When he entered the home, Woodward was found dead and the 3-year-old was still on the couch. The motive for the murder is unknown, as robbery didn't appear to be it.

On June 27, 1987, the body of 87-year-old Fannie Shelton was discovered on the floor in her room at her nursing home, 4134 E 31st St, with a wound to the back of the head. Workers initially believed her death to be accidental, thinking she may have fell or tripped and hit her head on something. They attempted to call Shelton's son, Wayne Shelton, 66, but could not reach him. Instead, they called his neighbors to ask to inform Shelton. A neighbor went to Wayne's home at 5732 E 22nd St, and upon entering found the bodies of both Wayne and his wife Dorothy, 63. Wayne had shot his wife in the back of the head as she lay in bed, before going into the bathroom and laying in the bathtub, firing a fatal shot into his own head. An hour later, police arrived at the apartment of Norma Harris, Wayne Shelton's sister, in order to inform her of the deaths. Upon entering the apartment, Harris, 69, was found dead of a gunshot wound to the back of the head. A son of Wayne living in Texas would later receive a suicide note, with Wayne admitting to killing his mother, wife, and sister. He said in the note that he was tired of seeing them suffer from health issues, and he was sorry for what he was going to do. Fannie had been confined to the nursing home, and both Dorothy and Norma had suffered strokes. Wayne had various unknown health issues himself, related with aging.
