About Hummel ParkPre-investigation- February 15, 2008 at 6:00 PM.
Hummel Park is a rolling heavily treed park located North of Omaha off Exit 13 on the Missouri River.
This is a potentially dangerous location to do an investigation because of the gang activity.
This location has a dark history. It was once a fur trading post run by Jean Pierre Cabanne in 1823. Purportedly it wass a Native American burial ground. Currently, it seems to be a hang-out for local gangs.
The park spreads across 200 acres.
Devil's Slide is located on the far eastern edge of the park. This is the site of numerous suicides.
It is rumored that local racist lynch mobs hung a number of black men and women from the trees in this park in the early 1900's.
In 1983, a prostitute was murdered after being sexually assaulted in the park. She was beaten to death by a tree limb and a bat. Her body was later discovered in a ditch in a heavily wooded area of the park.
In 1992, 15 year old Jeremy Drake was murdered at Hummel Park.
A 12 year old girl, Amber Marie Harris, disappeared near the park on November 29, 2005. On February 14, 2006, her backpack was found in the park. Her skeletal remains were later discovered in the park in May of 2006.
There is a high level of paranormal activity at this park.
Trees bow over the road that leads into the park.
“Morphing Stairs” are an intriguing feature of this location. There are stairs in the park that lead to an area that has been recently used in rituals of black magic. Each time a person ascends or descends on these stairs, the number of stairs will change, according to reports.
There is a river running through the park. Rivers tend to be associated with spiritual activity.
There is a gigantic electrical transformer located nearby. There is also a radio tranmitter tower at the edge of the park.
There was definitely a "heavy" feeling that became apparent as soon as we entered the park. We both felt hurried to "get out" before the sun set completely.
