My Haunted Days
With Kerry Von Erich
By Lisa Lee Harp Waugh
To start this, we were all just plain old country folk at the time. And teenagers in Texas don’t have much to choose from for activities when you live in a small town, so you kind of make up your own stuff to do for fun. Of course, everybody knew the Von Erich's in my neck of the woods.
I first met him at a tail gate party down by the river in Jefferson, when I was in high school. A friend and I had heard there was a great party going on there (we lived in Marshall, Texas which is only about 15 miles from Jefferson), so we were off to the party.
To be honest, at first, I didn’t even notice him. There was drinking, and smoking, music, and allot of my friends there to talk to. But then everybody started pairing up, and I wasn’t there with a boy, and I saw this cute blond standing behind a truck, reading a book, of all things!!!
So, of course, I had to find out who this “freak” was. And it turned out to be Kerry Von Erich!! He wasn’t a
wrestler, as of yet. But everybody knew his daddy of fame.
He was reading “The Prophet”, something I had just got through reading, and at the time it blew my mind away.
To make a very long story short, we became fast friends. And, it was just a friendship, nothing romantic. I saw him in a different light than all those wild girls coming at him like crazy. I saw him as a very deep, spiritual person, and I liked him.
As you might have read in my bio, no one knew that I could talk to dead people, not even my family. And I did not tell K., either, for a very long time. But he was into the paranormal, and I went along with him for the ride.
We didn’t have expensive equipment back in those days to use. It was just us. We would go to all the “so” called haunted places in and around Marshall and Jefferson, and walk around, and check them out. We didn’t even call it anything back in those days. We had never heard of ghost hunting per say.
We would take Ouija Boards, runes, anything we could get our hands on, and go to haunted places.
Our favorite place was down on Little Cypress Bayou at the old slave built, gun powder building, that is in ruins. Allot of slave ghosts that I could see and talk to there, and K. Ate it up.
By the way, I do not type out the name Kerry, because I called him K.
Anyway, back to the story.......K. Loved anything about the paranormal, but he loved drugs a awful lot better.
I tried to make him stop, but it was no use.
By the time our relationship ended, he was way down that wrong way road, and there was no coming back.
But until he got real bad, we had good ghost hunting.
Our finest hour was when we held a seance in a old historical building in Jefferson with a few of our friends. K.
Actually called a few ghosts up. Of course he couldn’t talk to them, but I could, and we scared the living daylights out of all our friends. We were in this building illegally as it was, and they screamed so loud and took out running in all directions, K. and I thought the law was going to get us!!!
That night, K. Called up the ghost of a old slave, that had been beaten, and strung up by his master, because he tried to escape the bonds of his slavery. He actually spoke and told everybody to leave, because he was busy making his music!!!
And the ghost of a slave that had died of heat stroke, making bricks for the actual building we were in. K. and I had many supernatural encouters. From calling up real ghosts of our slice of Texas history.
Yes, me and K. Had our time in the sun, and then his light died.
He would have been a big asset to the paranormal community.
I will miss him dearly.
Kerry Von Erich is buried Grove Hill Memorial Park next to his father.
