[News clip about a rumor that in 1938 Jasper Conrad Brown, one of nine workers who died while building the Old Mississippi River Bridge, fell into freshly poured concrete and was entombed in the bridge. "One of the parents went to see a fortune teller after the accident, years after the accident. The fortune teller said, 'Your son was entombed in one of the piers;' in fact, specifically said pier number three."]
