Johnny No-Face of Salem, Ohio

This is Egypt Road in Salem, Ohio.  Around here, Egypt Road is just another word for HAUNTED.  When I was giving the Salem Trolley tours last October, I started hearing stories about a specter called JOHNNY NO-FACE.   Many people in the Salem area know this tale, and strangely enough, it may be, at least partially, true.  It would seem there was a man who was electrocuted so severely that it burned off his face.  For years after the accident, he lived somewhere in the woods along Egypt road and would be seen walking in this area.  He finally died a few years back.  I am looking for more information about this story that would include his real name and the date of his death, if anyone knows it.  Email me at ghosting12@yahoo.com
