DID YOU KNOW..…. History Lesson!

That the Horror Film Character Freddy Kruger was based on a real life serial killer who lived in Lightening Creek, Oklahoma in the 1800s. Later the town was moved and became Alluwe, Oklahoma. When Oologah Lake was built in the 1950's and 60's the town was moved again. According to court county records of the time, Frederick Kruger was known to have killed at least twenty children within a three mile radius of where he lived. He reportedly murdered most of the children using only a Gardening claw. He lived inside an old abandoned cement factory north of town where he would bring his victims. Having set up a small living space (and torture area) within the "mechanical room" of the facility. Oh yeah...back then, a "mechanical room" was also known as a "boiler room". Mr. Kruger was eventually caught by his own recourse by accidentally starting a fire in a portion of the factory where he burned over 70% of his body. While in the hospital recovering, Police investigated & he was arrested after they found his room of horrors, he was tried, but found to be criminally insane. He spent the rest of his life in a Psychiatric Hospital in Vinita, Oklahoma before dying in his sleep at the old age of 72. But shortly after his death a string of unexpected deaths occurred involving young teenagers & children while they were sleeping in their beds, before they died a few parents said their children would wake up in the middle of the night from the night terrors to what they called a burned & scary old man with a claw was trying to kill them and refused to go back to sleep....we now know why....

To this day (and LONG before the Elm St. films) Lightening Creek, and Old Alluwe, Oklahoma has since became ghost towns where all residents have long moved away in Fear that it was haunted by His ghost

"Old" Alluwe was inundated when Oologah Lake was built. The town and residents were moved to New Alluwe. It is a "wide spot in the road" farming community on the East side of Oologah lake a little North of Chelsea.
When the lake is low you can still find the floors and foundations of the old town along the shore of the lake in parts of the public hunting area.

“I’d read an article in the L.A. Times about a family who had escaped the Killing Fields in Cambodia and managed to get to the U.S. Things were fine, and then suddenly the young son was having very disturbing nightmares. He told his parents he was afraid that if he slept, the thing chasing him would get him, so he tried to stay awake for days at a time. When he finally fell asleep, his parents thought this crisis was over. Then they heard screams in the middle of the night. By the time they got to him, he was dead. He died in the middle of a nightmare. Here was a youngster having a vision of a horror that everyone older was denying. That became the central line of Nightmare on Elm Street.”

“DID YOU KNOW.... That the Horror Film Character Freddy Kruger (sic) was based on a real life serial killer who lived in Lightening Creek, Oklahoma in the 1800s,” Michael Phariss posted on Facebook on July 2. "Later the town was moved and became Alluwe, Oklahoma."

The post then shares eerie details of child murders, factory fires and haunted ghost towns alongside a mysterious photo of a dark figure lurking behind three oblivious toddlers.

The legend, which was debunked by Snopes in October 2017 and PolitiFact in September 2019, is an evolved rendition of a 2017 Halloween prank.

In a much shorter October 2017 Facebook post, Lamaur Foster told his followers about the "real serial killer" alongside a photo of a gravestone inscribed "Frederick Kruger." Foster recounted the legend of an 1800s serial killer who allegedly inspired the iconic character before disclosing the post was a holiday joke.

“Actually, I just found this picture and made all that ... up. Happy October everyone!” Foster wrote at the end of the post, which received thousands of shares, likes and comments.
