Black Aggie

Excerpted from Spooky Maryland retold by S. E. Schlosser

When Felix Agnus put up the life-sized shrouded bronze statue of a grieving angel, seated on a pedestal, in the Agnus family plot in the Druid Ridge Cemetery, he had no idea what he had started. The statue was a rather eerie figure by day, frozen in a moment of grief and terrible pain. At night, the figure was almost unbelievably creepy; the shroud over its head obscuring the face until you were up close to it. There was a living air about the grieving angel, as if its arms could really reach out and grab you if you weren't careful.

It didn't take long for rumors to sweep through the town and surrounding countryside. They said that the statue – nicknamed Black Aggie – was haunted by the spirit of a mistreated wife who lay beneath her feet. The statue's eyes would glow red at the stroke of midnight, and any living person who returned the statues gaze would instantly be struck blind. Any pregnant woman who passed through her shadow would miscarry. If you sat on her lap at night, the statue would come to life and crush you to death in her dark embrace. If you spoke Black Aggie's name three times at midnight in front of a dark mirror, the evil angel would appear and pull you down to hell. They also said that spirits of the dead would rise from their graves on dark nights to gather around the statue at night.

People began visiting the cemetery just to see the statue, and it was then that the local fraternity decided to make the statue of Grief part of their initiation rites. "Black Aggie" sitting, where candidates for membership had to spend the night crouched beneath the statue with their backs to the grave of General Agnus, became popular.

One dark night, two fraternity members accompanied new hopeful to the cemetery and watched while he took his place underneath the creepy statue. The clouds had obscured the moon that night, and the whole area surrounding the dark statue was filled with a sense of anger and malice. It felt as if a storm were brewing in that part of the cemetery, and to their chagrin, the two fraternity members noticed that gray shadows seemed to be clustering around the body of the frightened fraternity candidate crouching in front of the statue.

What had been a funny initiation rite suddenly took on an air of danger. One of the fraternity brothers stepped forward in alarm to call out to the initiate. As he did, the statue above the boy stirred ominously. The two fraternity brothers froze in shock as the shrouded head turned toward the new candidate. They saw the gleam of glowing red eyes beneath the concealing hood as the statue's arms reached out toward the cowering boy.

With shouts of alarm, the fraternity brothers leapt forward to rescue the new initiate. But it was too late. The initiate gave one horrified yell, and then his body disappeared into the embrace of the dark angel. The fraternity brothers skidded to a halt as the statue thoughtfully rested its glowing eyes upon them. With gasps of terror, the boys fled from the cemetery before the statue could grab them too.

Hearing the screams, a night watchman hurried to the Agnus plot. To his chagrin, he discovered the body of a young man lying at the foot of the statue. The young man had apparently died of fright.

The disruption caused by the statue grew so acute that the Agnus family finally donated it to the Smithsonian museum in Washington D.C.. The grieving angel sat for many years in storage there, never again to plague the citizens visiting the Druid Hill Park Cemetery.

Details of Disappearance 
Judie was last seen at approximately 5:00 p.m. at her pet store, Ani-mall, in the vicinity of the 8100 block of Vaughn Road in Montgomery, AL. Her employees became concerned and called police when she didn't show up for work the next day. They reported that they had seen Mr. Wilding in rages against his wife in recent days and that he had taken a razor blade to images of animals at the store.

Her vehicle was later located behind her pet store and all of her belongings were left at her residence.

Wilding's body still has not been found, but her husband, Albert Wilding, finally pleaded guilty in February 2011 to killing her. Mr. Wilding maintained his innocence for years, saying his wife simply walked out on him. Wilding was preparing to shut down his wife's financially-struggling business. She began preparing for a divorce after more than 20 years of marriage. In his guilty plea, Wilding told the judge he found his wife packing a suitcase and started a struggle with her. Mrs. Wilding was fatally shot during the struggle. Wilding did not call police or an ambulance, instead opting to keep his wife's body in the bathroom of their east Montgomery home for a day before buring her remains. He then disposed of the ashes in different locations around Lake Martin. Wilding's guilty plea deal called for two-and-a-half years in prison followed by five years of probation. The plea marks the second time Wilding has been convicted of manslaughter charges. In an unrelated case from 1970, Wilding admitted to killing his then mother-in-law in Kentucky.
