It's the same bullsh*t they pull in Salem, Oregon (and other such crummy towns who are famous for nothing more than bullsh*t stories) claiming to be haunted because of the witch trials while setting up business after business to cash in on the annual boom that tourism brings to the economy.

Whether it's the mothman in West Virginia, alien tourism in Roswell, Bigfoot in the pacific Northwest, or ghostly tours all across the south the purpose behind such "sightings" has always been to attract attention and income to a place that is otherwise undeserving of either.
Leave it to Bringer to on the parade. I don't believe these ghost stories/ prophecies but it's fun to suspend your logic and discuss these things as if they're real.

I loved the movie Mothman Prophecies with Dick Gere btw...
