Actually one murder connected with the bridge. I posted about that and all the hauntings and legends about the bridge, plus my own photos and EVP I caught in a chapter in my third nonfiction ghost book, Virginia's Haunted Historic Triangle: Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown, and Other Haunted Locations. I have four books to date and mostly try to find and go to these places. Working on fifth one, Haunted Petersburg, and The Ghosts of the Tri-Cities Area for Schiffer Publishing I was contracted o do.
