7- Phantoms - The Weeping Woman - Guatemala/Nuevo Mexico

A greedy man will meet La Llorona, who will lead him to his death. After we talk about the origins of the weeping woman, we finalize with one more story.
Read the transcript here.

La Llorona is a well-known phantom that has been reported to dwell in the South West of the US, Mexico and Central America.

This version tells us about the fate of one of those men that La Llorona punished.
