Students at Cape Fear Community College are inviting the public to help solve a mystery surrounding the death of an 18th century Wilmington horseman as part of the 2013 Ghost Chase.
The event is designed as a scavenger hunt where participants must search for clues to discover the truth surrounding a mystery about Wilmington’s past. Registration is $10 per person with a portion of the proceeds going towards the Full Belly Project.
This year, the case involves a man named Llewelyn Markwick, who moved to Wilmington from England in the 18th century. As the story goes, Mr. Markwick mysteriously disappeared while riding his faithful horse on Halloween in 1760.
The event will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 30 starting at 5:30 p.m. in the Warwick Building 254 N. Front St. in room 117.
Participants will receive the rules and enjoy some festive treats. The chase will begin promptly at 6:30pm and should take approximately an hour and a half to complete. This event is open to the public and fun for all ages. There will be prizes for the first, second and third place teams.
