I missed the show, but I know of Sterling.
Gratis, Ohio is the town closest to a high school he attended. Preble County and this particular part of the county is heavily wooded in areas. I
would not be surprised if they mentioned either Lower Gratis Road (known for non-wican witches) or Brubaker Covered Bridge (known for a suicide/ car
wreck ghost story) as areas for this capture. Both are heavily wooded, fairly isolated and have a "history of various stories". Another area that
would qualify would be "Crybaby Bridge". In other words, the people in the are a superstitious lot and the isolation of the land features only add
to the spookiness factor.
On the whole, 99.9% chance that Sterling just made up the story to stir the pot or had a caller that made up the story and he decided to play along to
see what kind of reactions he would get. And yes, some of the people on my FB friends list that grew up in the area (as did I) have bought it hook,
line and sinker because it was on WLW.
Don't let me make up your mind, but I got to give it a knowing what I know.
