In this area, locals have reported witnessing the paranormal phenomena known as "Night Marchers." Night Marchers are believed to be the spirits of former natives who appear in remote and isolated places during late hours, marching together in formation. A strong wind, balls of lights (known as "Ghost Lights"), and the sounds of marching soldiers herald the beginning of a Night March.
Paranormal investigators routinely come to this island and these fields, to observe this strange phenomenon. Several years ago a young woman camped here in an attempt to witness the Night Marchers. She was last seen walking into the cane around twilight. The next morning, a man walking on a nearby beach discovered a body. The police later determined it to be that of the woman who had been camping in these cane fields. This was the first known instance of the serial killer who still stalks the island.
The serial killer is considered impossibly skilled-over the course of eight years and four killings, he has never left a trace as to his identity. Local Polynesians call him the "Ku Killer," as they believe he is spiritually tied to a vengeful god. Some locals do not even believe that he is a real person, but rather a ghost. Whatever the case, his killings are very real and he has yet to be stopped or caught.
