In this article we will be taking a look at a paranormal area of the inner Sydney suburb of Glebe, dubbed by locals as ‘The Street With No Name’.
What haunts this leafy, colorful location in Sydney and why is the local population so scared of it?
The Nameless Street
The Street With No Name stretches out behind the light rail viaduct across the way from Jubilee Park in Glebe. Several years ago it was still accessible through a forest path that joins the side of the street…but it is now mysteriously fenced off by the authorities.
It’s location actually sits not more than four kilometers away from the Central Business District of the city of Sydney…but for some unknown reason…it manages to remain deathly quiet…
After a little bit of digging online, I came across numerous paranormal reports linked to six deaths that occurred in and around the location.
Numerous websites have linked a couple of these deaths to satanic rituals…
But it seems as though the ‘Chinese Whispers’ element of the internet has taken over here – closer research proves that there have only been three murders on The Street With No Name.
One website gets the facts wrong – and the others plagiarize the mistakes and publish them on their own!
The Young Boys
All three of the murders that took place here, involved young boys. The first took place in 1968 when the mutilated body of a three-year-old boy was found crudely hidden at the side of the street.
This murder is still considered a cold case.
In 1976, the body of a 12-year-old boy was found at the location – he had been severely beaten and had died of head injuries.
Only seven months later, yet another 12-year-old boy was found in the exact same location as the last – this poor kid had been brutally stabbed to death.
Understandably, within days of the third body being found – the street became a complete no-go area for local children…and has remained that way ever since.
Over the last few years, the West Sydney Paranormal Research group have been trying to carry out extensive investigations of the area.
Unfortunately, the area is now so well-secured, that most of their tests took place around the sides of the street. They did claim to have come in contact with the spirit of homeless man named Reg Malvin.
Malvin was apparently killed in the grandstand that runs parallel to the street, in 2000.
Nearby, the arched recesses beneath the light rail viaduct are now rented out as storage facilities – Mark Brynes has owned one for over a decade now.
He claims to have witnessed many paranormal experiences in the area, ranging from ghostly footsteps to the disturbing laughter of children.
