So what's the story behind this haunted parking lot and its relationship to the infamous Tulsa Hex House? Back in the 1940s, a group of three women lived in a duplex where this parking lot is now. One of the women put a spell or hex on the other two and made them live in the basement as prisoners while she lived upstairs in luxury. The two women Virginia Evans and Willetta Horner gave all their money to Carolann Smith who promised them both rewards in heaven for their suffering on earth. They were enslaved for over 7 years.

Smith also took out insurance policies on family, friends, and even a maid. After their mysterious and untimely deaths, she collected large settlements. She even swindled Virginia Evans' father out of thousands of dollars for nursing and health care costs while she was living, more like imprisoned at Hex House. Eventually, the two women were rescued and told stories of how they were starved and beaten. Law enforcement found all kinds of witchcraft books along with other evidence that told a gruesome story.

After Carolann Smith was arrested more and more details began to surface about the horrific and abusive treatment Virginia Evans and Willetta Horner endured while being held prisoner at Hex House. The house got its name after investigators uncovered evidence of witchcraft and satanism. Also, the two women who were held hostage reported being hexed by Smith and were unable to break the spell. In the end, Carolann Smith only received 1 year in prison for her evil deeds. Despite suspicions of her involvement in other scams, fraud, and even the deaths of those she collected insurance settlements for. But there wasn't enough evidence.

The house was torn down in 1975 but allegedly the basement where Virginia Evans and Willetta Horner were held hostage and even tortured is still under the pavement. People experience all kinds of weird phenomena while on the lot. Car lights going on and off, hearing muffled sounds from below the ground, and an awful feeling of dread and fright. Some people have even reported that their cars would start and move all by themselves. There's even talk of spirits and supernatural beings trying to communicate through car stereos.
