One day he went crazy, and murdered them all, including his newborn baby, and threw their bodies into the creek in the tunnel. If you enter the tunnel and turn off your car engine, it supposedly will not restart and if you look into your rearview mirror, you will see Mr. Sensabaugh approaching your car. Then, as he approaches, your engine will start again. Other people claim you can hear Mr. Sensabaugh's footsteps echoing in the tunnel and/or a baby crying.
