One of my favorite Forks Chamber web cams to check in on is the O.N.P. camera located at Lake Crescent. From 1937-1940 these deep cold waters harbored the mystery of a missing woman’s whereabouts.
The woman, Hallie Illingworth, had disappeared and her husband claimed she had left him, but dental records identified her body when after three years it returned to the surface of the Lake.
Lake Crescent’s icy waters had turned Illingworth’s body to soap. Her husband went to trial and was convicted of her murder and sentenced to life, but was later paroled, leaving Illingworth to forever be known as “The Lady of the Lake.”
