If the skull is in the picture and so is Maisie how can it be her skull?Posted by Zazii
The only part I didn't like.... they were taken in the morning...but she hadn't been seen talking to it until the afternoon - the afternoon also being when this picture was taken...which was supposed to be the morning?Posted by AnguisetteAntha
I don't understand. So the picture was taken, then Maisie disappeared, and Isabelle was holding Maisie's skull? So how was her skull removed before the picture was taken? The logic overpowered the creepy for me. :(Posted by jnazty

I liked this, thank you.Posted by Bigman61
I feel like this story would make a very intriguing film. Has this already happened?Posted by DealWithThat
Hmmm... my sister is outside talking to a cloaked pedo stranger. Should I:
A)Chase them off B)Call the police C)Get my parents D)Grab my camera and take photos for my albumPosted by Fyrstar2002
In addition to my family's story never mentioning a picture, the story to go with this photo has to be crap. That photo is the old silver-plate kind from the 19th century, isn't it? Weren't those cameras big-ass contraptions and you couldn't just quick snap another photo?
Also, I don't remember anything about an Isabelle Deacon. Like I said, the real version was just that they couldn't find Maisie one night.
Oh, I think I kind of remember one of the other fake stories. Something about "Yah, I saw Maisie last night. She was riding out of town with Cousin Blahblah in his wagon. Talked with both of them for a few minutes." But cousin Blahblah has been DEAD for three years! Dun dun dun!Posted by BrianDeacon
This would make for an awesome episode of Supernatural.Posted by ndtcssh
Now thats a quality post!Posted by CaptainFumbles
I cant speak to the authenticity of this story, as this is something I snagged ages ago, but it definitely belongs here none the less!Posted by earthsick
I'm a distant relative of Maisie Deacon. (Like her father would be my great-something uncle, I don't know exactly.) This story in our family is known as "that fake legend that grew up about how Maisie died". I can't remember too much about it, but I've never seen this picture before, and I don't remember anything about a photograph being part of the story. (I also recall that there were other variations of the story with different holes in them.)
I think the "real" and boring version is that Maisie went missing at night and was found dead the next day with no visible injuries. So the no visible injuries is what made people think it was spooky.
I think my grandmother (dead now) put together some clippings with debunking-type notes in a little scrap-book. I think my uncle has it now, I should give him a call.Posted by BrianDeacon
