What Secrets do the Streets of Downtown Statesville Hold?

Step into the mysterious past of Statesville and uncover the haunting tale of Riley Fitzpatrick. Riley, a skilled blacksmith with a soft spot for horses, found himself accused of crimes he swore he'd never commit. Despite his good deeds and loyalty to equine companions, fate dealt him a cruel hand, leading to a punishment that forever changed him.

Accused of horse theft not once, but twice, Riley faced brutal consequences in an era where justice was swift and merciless. Yet, amidst the darkness, a glimmer of hope emerged as a group of supporters conspired to save him from the gallows. Their plan to fake his hanging took an unexpected turn, leaving Riley's spirit fractured and his fate uncertain.

Now, wander the shadowy alleys and dimly lit streets of Statesville, where sightings of a spectral figure clad in a bandana and hat still send shivers down spines. Is it Riley's lost spirit, forever trapped in a realm between the living and the dead?
