Turpin the Legend

A myth submitted to the site by Safa

Yorkshire, England

Dick Turpin was a highway man who stole local's money and treasure. Unfortunately, Dick Turpin was caught stealing chickens from a farmer and he was sent to prison. However, he escaped and ran away.

He wrote a letter to his family under the name John Palmer and gave it to the postman. But the postman recognised his handwriting for he had taught Dick Turpin how to write so he caught him.

Then on the 20th July at 16:00, Dick Turpin was hung. Two years after Dick Turpin's death, his ghostly spirit terrorised the villages, and illness and disease. So be careful, he may just pass YOU!
