The Pencee Scarecrows
On April 30, 2009, Pencee McLane left with five of her closest friends on a camping trip. What occurred to Pencee and her friends that night has become a mystery for the ages.
It’s reported that the group arrived at their planned destination at 7 PM. The group made camp and spent the night drinking and having a good time. When Pencee awoke the following morning, all of the people in her group were gone.
Upon investigating the campsite, she found nothing out of the ordinary.
The SUV was still there.
The tents were still there. All of the group’s food and clothing was still in their respective tents.
Nothing had been disturbed.
She spent the next hour texting and calling her friends, but not one person responded. She even called their parents. Beginning to panic, Pencee called the police.
Authorities arrived on scene, but were just as confused as Pencee. No signs of struggle, no signs of other people.
The strangest thing to come out of the initial investigation was the discovery that the only footprints at the campsite were Pencee’s.
It gets worse.
On May 1, 2010, the first body appeared.
Sara Paella was found in the middle of a field, right on the spot where the original group camped. As seen in the pictures above, her desiccated corpse was found tied to a rough crucifix with barbed wire. A stitched burlap sack was thrown over her head and a collar of barbed wire adorned her neck.
Police determined that the cause of death was strangulation with the barbed wire.
On May 1, 2011, the second body appeared. Kitty Sigmon was found crucified across the street from where Pencee was living at the time. The crucifix appeared in her neighbor’s backyard. Residents on the street all reported that the only thing they heard that night was a droning noise that sounded like a plane.
Pencee McLane relocated to a new city shortly after this occurred.
On May 1, 2012, the third body appeared. Melissa Green was found crucified and hung with barbed wire. Once again, the body appeared across the street from where Pencee McLane lived. This time in the front yard.
Pencee once again moved to a new city.
On May 1, 2013, the fourth body appeared. Willis Timmermen was found crucified in Pencee’s own front yard, his body in the same shape as the others.
May 1, 2014 will be here soon and the fifth member of the group still hasn’t been found.
I wonder where that scarecrow will appear…
This was my first project for my stained glass college class. We had two projects to work on over the semester. Naturally, I had to come up with something incredibly difficult which my professor wasn’t sure I’d be able to finish. Proved her wrong =) It’s the heraldry for a medieval group I’m a member of. I looked at some Fleur de lis patterns online, then changed the best one so it looked the way I wanted. It’s a lead window, 22” by 20”, and 68 pieces. May 2012
OMG! you mean one can learn this from school!!
Sometimes, depends on the school I guess. The college I went to is no longer offering it, unfortunately. But if you’re really interested, see if you have a local stained glass store because they often offer classes.
My college once had glass studio, so now we still have some colored glass cubes in store. I’ ll ask my teacher if I could buy some and use the pottery kiln. Your work is fantastic! Like it so much. May I repost your pictures to the public forum?
