With the statement that the story may not be paranormal, Jason Offutt relates the childhood experience of Dana Talley in 1964 when she was seven-years-old. Talley’s 1964 experience would be repeated with her own child seventeen years later when he was seven-years-old. Were the two events just coincidence? Or was some other force at work at two small Texas carnivals in Witchita Falls and San Antonio in 1964 and 1981, respectively?
