THE MELON HEADS
Another version of the story explains that the children's maladies were birth defects caused by Mr. Crowe's exposure to radiation during his work as a government scientist. The children later died and were buried in secret graves somewhere within the woods.
Are they ghosts? Or are they living descendants of The Melon Head Family, who continue to live in seclusion?
Interestingly, there is a cemetery nearby called King Memorial Cemetery. While it does not appear that Dr. Crow is buried here, there is a marker for a gentleman by the name of CROWER.
Even if they did exist at one time,
it's hardly likely that they can still be found in this area. Massive real
estate development here is largely to blame. As of February 2002,
there seems very little in the way of "woods" along King Memorial Road.
Needless to say, no Melon Heads were found. Perhaps they relocated
