Over the years there have been multiple paranormal sightings at the church. People have reported seeing blood drip from the windows of the church, a noose hanging in the tree by her grave, and have even seen Katy’s apparition along the road or in the cemetery. There have also been reports of people hearing strange noises and screams coming from the church.
