Mysterious 'Woman in Black' fascinates the US
A mysterious woman dressed in black from head to toes has a lot of people talking on social media. She has been spotted in several states, walking alone, silent, while pulling a cart.
Over 13,000 follow her tracks on a Facebook page where they register her itinerary and post pictures as they encounter her.
The woman, who has been identified by The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office as 56-year-old Elizabeth Poles, has become a modern myth after walking at least 800 kilometers.
She has been spotted in Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Ohio but no one seems to know exactly why she keeps walking or where she is headed to.
