Stephen King's 'Pet Semetary' was the first of his books I read. I read it at the tender age of thirteen, and it made a huge impact on me as an aspiring writer and horror fiction fan.

As great as that book is, it's still just fiction. Reality truly is stranger-and more horrifying-than fiction. There's a pet cemetery here in Louisiana that has a dark and disturbing past. Located in St. Bernard Parish, it's now closed, but was once the site of murders, violent arguments, buried valuables, and more.
