Much is known about the Bell Witch, who was said to haunt the family of John Bell in Robertson County, Tennessee. But very little is known about her monkey, which was also rumored to have tormented the Bell family in 1819. A recent expedition to Adams, Tennessee, sought to determine once and for all whether the Bell Witch Monkey existed. This somewhat blurred photo was taken when the alleged Bell Witch Monkey was caught terrorizing the trash can of an Adams resident. He is pictured here just after he dropped the Twinkie wrapper and just before he bit the photographer’s leg and disappeared into the shrubbery.
