The Truth Behind The Poisoned Halloween Candy Urban Legend We Hear Every Year
In Deer Park, TX, on
Halloween night of 1974, Ronald O’Bryan, an optician and church deacon, was chaperoning his 8-year-old son Timothy and 5-year-old daughter Elizabeth as they trick or treated throughout the neighborhood. They stopped at a darkened house and rang the bell but when nobody came to the door, the children moved ahead impatiently, catching up to three other neighborhood children. O’Bryan lingered behind. When he caught up to the kids he had good news: someone had come to door after all and given him candy for the group. He produced five 21 inch
Pixy Stix. He gave one each to Timothy, Elizabeth, two of his neighbor’s children, and a 10-year-old boy he recognized from church.
