An Educated Ghost Lost on Campus
TUCSON – Around the turn of the Twentieth Century, a young University of Arizona coed was brutally murdered and her body was thrown down an old well that once inhabited the space where the Modern Languages Building now stands. When the building was being erected in 1965, construction workers found her remains but didn’t notify authorities because they were afraid that the project would be held up, or even halted.
Eventually, authorities did find out and took the proper steps. But, according to some, the girl can still be seen at the south entrance of the building between 8 p.m. and midnight. Her black hair is pulled back and she wears a shawl and skirt resembling the attire she would have been clad in during her brief lifetime.
Those who claim to have seen her say she looks as if she is looking for something. They also report that she covers her face and runs away when confronted, but returns to search for the remains of her body.
