Just in time for Halloween, the website Thought Catalog published a creepy list naming "The Scariest Urban Legend From Every State".

Their pick for scariest urban legend in the Cowboy State is the infamous 'Wyoming Incident'.


The legend dates back to 2006, when this video first appeared online. It appears to show a television program being interrupted by a hacker.

The clip, which reportedly preempted a news broadcast in Niobrara County, depicted a number of disturging images, including skulls and dead bodies.

It was also referred to locally as the Wyoming Highjacking.
