Sounds like this story

The Lake Bodom murders were an infamous multiple homicide that took place in Finland in 1960. Lake Bodom is a lake by the city of Espoo, about 22 kilometres west of the country's capital, Helsinki. In the early hours of June 5, 1960, four teenagers were camping on the shores of Lake Bodom.[1] Between 4AM and 6AM, an unknown person or people murdered three of them with a knife and blunt instrument wounding the fourth. The sole survivor, Nils Wilhelm Gustafsson, led a normal life until 2004, when he became a suspect and was subsequently charged. In October 2005, a district court found Gustafsson not guilty of all charges against him.

The murders have proven to be a popular subject in the Finnish media and commonly return to the headlines whenever new information or theories surface, but the case is still unsolved and will probably remain a mystery.

I'm sure that a murder of that scale would be legendary in a smaller community like Walker. If nobody from the community has ever heard of it, then the celebrity is either lying or was herself misinformed. I will admit however that some of the ghost stories on Bio seem legit. I'm a skeptic but my own Dad claims to have seen and heard a ghost.

Better late than never; the only thing I could find on the subject were murders at the Leech Lake Reservation, but nothing that resembled the story on CGS (Celebrity Ghost Stories)...
But you lot should remember something. Just because the stories aren't true (most urban legends -- which this sounds like -- aren't true, but a few do have a grain of truth to them) doesn't mean the experiences aren't. These people are opening themselves up to persecution, being called liars, or crazy. Yes, they're celebrities, but they're also human beings... so while the 'ghost stories' historically may not be true, nor the legends that spawn them... that doesn't invalidate the alleged experiences. Maybe in this one instance, it was an urban legend perpetuated by some pretty sick counselors, wanting to keep the story alive. We'll never -really- know if any of those occurrences actually -happened-, but try not to be so dismissive and judgemental... they're people and they make mistakes.
Also, they could have changed the location... that's another possibility.

These people might actually believe their own stories, they might have been self medicating, they might be crazy. Think about it.

For some people the line between conscious thought and subconscious thought is very vague, and they have a hard time separating dream state from reality.

I believe that to. isn't the saying "All legends start with a fraction of the truth?" Plus those camp counselors could have heard the story from the camp counselors when they were kids, and each one of those adults could have heard the same story or even one slightly different. also, the story whether legend or myth could have also been told in a different way at another campground but end the same way.(Death). For example.

I used to go to Camp big silver with the boy & Girls club. I don't know if you heard the story of seaweed Sally but here goes.

There was a teenage girl named Sally (Duh) She and her friend sneaks out one night to go canoeing in the dark. They couldn't get into the boat house to get the life jackets because they lock it at night. So, they went out on the canoe without one. Sally was just relaxing and letting her hand dangle over the side into the water. She leaned to far over and fell in. Her friend tried to save her but Sally drowned. She got caught up in the weeds. A bout four days later her friend and some other kids were camping by the water when Sally (Covered in seaweed) came up on shore. Her friend cried and said how sorry she was. And Sally gave out some kind of warning then went back into the water.

Someone else heard it this way "Seaweed Sally" She was a camper a while back who went canoeing in the lake with a friend. Her friend started goofing off shaking the boat because Sally couldn't swim. Sally freaked out, stood up and screamed, fell out, and was never seen again, even after they drained the lake. The morning after it happened Sally's friend woke up and saw seaweed dripping off the top bunk and wet footprints on the ground.

And in another story Sally was water skiing (Or maybe it was Jet skiing.)

Anyways timelines could have been changed also since the teenagers murdered at Leech lake may have been told for many years. So, who knows. It might not have even been teenagers that were murdered.

BTW, anyone else have a different version of seaweed Sally let me know.

Herb Mullin:
His rampage began on October 13th 1972 and ended January 13th, 1973. He killed thirteen people. Mullin bashed the skull of an alcoholic drifter with a baseball bat, eviscerated a female hitchhiker, stabbed a priest to death in his confessional, shot and stabbed a drug dealer's wife and children and a young married couple, murdered four teenage campers executioner style, and shot a retired boxer with a rifle in his front yard.
***Maybe it's based on this story...
Herb Mullin killed people in California. She's telling a story from northern Minnesota. I doubt it's based on him. I live in northern Minnesota and never heard of this story. Sounds like a campfire story to scare young kids. I'm not saying all the stories are fake but this one I highly doubt. I've found no murders from the 70's as described.

This sounds like a typical camp prank. Every camp has had murders or was built on an old burial ground. These stories seem to be a camp tradition. I think the motorcycles were the friends or boyfriends of the councilors coming out to scare the girls. Its funny to think that after all these years she hasn't realized that!

I watched a show that said some college kids was murdered at Leech Lake in the 1970s and that the place is haunted.I cannot find anything online about people being murdered there in the 1970s. If anyone knows about several people being killed together there in the 70s, please comment
Hey I just watched on the bio channel I think it was 4 teenagers that were murdered by a stranger with a chainsaw.....I remember listening to talk radio when I was driving truck at night ... and they were talking about movies that are based on a true store and thats the bases of the Texas chain saw massacre but that it actually happened in Minnesota? The show I was just watching was the 10 scarest places and it was celebrities. Good luck

Did anyone consider that it was a ghost story told to the campers, and the lights, screams, and tracks were made by counselors? That is a common trick played on campers at summer camps.

This story is weird....throughout the years the legend apparently changed overall the years....if this was a "true story" it would be able to be investigated by others....being a Native American who actually lives in the area I believe that there are spirits, entities, ghosts whatever you prefer to call them....it's so ironic that most of these people "get rid" of negativity energy by burning sage throughout the "haunted dwelling" which for us Native Americans use for cleansing....OF COURSE THERE ARE SPIRITS....BUT YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND UNTIL YOU EXPERIENCE IT....

It sounds like most of the people posting here do not believe that spirits/ghosts exist. We investigate the paranormal and try to get evidence of their existence. So I would really like to know where on Leech Lake they might have been talking about.
I know sometimes things can seem like lies or not possible, but I have seen and heard the impossible myself.
I don't mean to sound rude but that was and INCREDIBLY stupid comment, I believe in spirits/ghosts and I even think that some story are a croc of shit because people lie. It's happens, they want attention and they lie to get it. Actors do it too, as shocking as it may seem. just because people don't believe in the story doesn't mean they don't believe in ghosts. I'm not saying leech lake isn't haunted I'm just saying it can't be haunted by four brutally murdered teenagers from the 70's.

Also don't listen to that guy claiming Jason Voorhees is real. He's not. He's the series killer from Friday the 13th.

LMN's Clebrity Ghost Story once again ran S. Harris's story of her encounter. 1)Leech Lake, MN is not a city in MN it is a large body of water in Walker, MN. 2)There is a Camp Birchwood, in Laporte, MN near Walker. 3)Having family living on the lake there never has been a murder of any kind described by Harris, 4)many internet searches have been performed since the episode was first aired with nothing found. So I take this story with a grain of salt. Ms Harris may have experienced something somewhere at sometime but, it was not near Leech Lake in Walker,MN. Will continue to research this because it piques my interest, imagination, and need for answers.

The story of daniel stern is a real town. However not a ghost town. There is a living community that resides there. There was a bad storm.in the 1600s that caused part of the steeple caved in killing 4 people who are buried in the church. This is a small town and when someone of importance passes away they whole town morns which would explain all of them being somber and dressed in black.
