River Ghost

I live near the Rio Grande River. When it is night and you are inside your house ready to go to sleep and every thing is quiet. You can hear people whispering outside your window even if the streets are deserted. you can sometimes hear Indians on horses. One time my neighbor which was new on the block didn't believe us about a man which appeared hanged surrounded by fire until he heard his children screaming and went to check it out he saw it the ghost that is. The next day he decided to call the priest for an exorcism. If you walk at night when everything is deserted and quiet you can see a figure of a soldier walking a dog you know it is a ghost because every time he passes a streetlight he disappears and reappears again. Every body there isn't scared anymore because this ghost has never done any harm.
