3. Red Lady of Huntingdon College
In her book, 13 Alabama Ghosts and Jeffrey, Kathryn Tucker Windham tells a tragic story of an outsider named Martha, who reluctantly came from New York to Huntingdon College because it was the alma mater of her grandmother. Said to have been a shy girl, the boldest thing about her was her love for the colour red, which she draped about her bedroom in blankets, curtains, rugs, and knickknacks. Failing to make friends, she became increasingly withdrawn and eventually began wandering to the doorways of others’ dorms, staring in at night without saying a word. It’s a pattern she’s said to repeat to this day, after having swathed herself in her red blanket and slit her wrists in her room. Students at the university have claimed to have seen red glow coming from underneath the door.
