The Woman In Black is one of the horror movies that got under my skin the most, but the real life 'Woman In Black' is so much more interesting...

A woman dressed in black robes and headdress has been walking over 1000 miles across America - and nobody knows why.

She has attracted so much attention that local police have asked people to leave her in peace - and quite right, too.

The Woman in Black has been identified as Elizabeth Poles, 56, an army veteran who lost her husband and her father over the last decade.

Although she's been recognized, her real reasons for her wandering remain a mystery.

She cuts a stark, poetic figure on the bare highways of America, so it's not surprising that she's captured the American imagination.

Whatever her reasons, I just hope that this brave veteran finds what she is looking for...
