Case: Medical Mystery
Date: June 1980
Location: Acton, Indiana
Details: One day in June 1980, Robert Davidson was driving his motorcycle on a highway near Acton, Indiana, when all of a sudden, a thunderstorm came through and he was struck by lightning. As paramedics tried to save his life at the scene, a mysterious woman dressed in black arrived and began praying and chanting for him. After a few minutes, she left and vanished and almost immediately he began to improve and was able to survive. Robert remained in a coma for some time, and awoken shortly before his daughter gave birth to her first baby.
It is unknown what became of the woman who pleaded for Robert’s life. Known as the “Lady in Black,” she is believed to be a ghost from the 1800s Acton Campground.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the May 3, 1996 episode.
An alternate theory links the woman to the land where the road cuts through which was once known as the Fendler Estate. (See the Talk Page for more information.)
