On the edge of the Mississippi Delta sits the quiet town of Satartia. Its most dominant feature is the Yazoo River, which runs through this small community of less than a hundred residents. However, two separate encounters, decades ago, cast a dark shadow on this small river town. Events that many of the people who live here may not be aware ever happened.

"You could see this yellow-green, bubbling water out there and you could. We started to hear moaning and stuff and we left." Texas ghost hunter and original Unexplained contributor Janice Raley says she was directed to this spot by an old farmer who recounted a similar experience from years before. Even the farmer was afraid of this place. "He showed me from the road. He wouldn't come down here even though he worked the land."
