Chain-letter-style Internet postings tell the story of Carmen Winstead, a 17-year-old girl supposedly pushed down a sewer and killed by a gang of girls from her school.

Description: Ghost story / Internet chain letter
Circulating since: 2006
See also: French version | Spanish version
Status: False (see details below)

Example:
Text of MySpace.com posting contributed by RedHot, Oct. 6, 2006:

------ Bulletin Message ------

They pushed her down a sewer

About 6 years ago in Indiana, Carmen Winstead was pushed down a sewer opening by 5 girls in her school, trying to embarrass her in front of her school during a fire drill. When she didn't submerge the police were called. They went down and brought up 17 year old Carmen Winstead's body, her neck broke hitting the ladder, then side concrete at the bottom. The girls told everyone she fell... They believed them.

FACT: 2 months ago, 16 year old David Gregory read this post and didn't repost it. When he went to take a shower he heard laughter from his shower, he started freaking out and ran to his computer to repost it, He said goodnight to his mom and went to sleep, 5 hours later his mom woke up in the middle of the night cause of a loud noise, David was gone, that morning a few hours later the police found him in the sewer, his neck broke and his face skin peeled off.

If you don't repost this saying "She was pushed" or "They pushed her down a sewer" Then Carmen will get you, either from a sewer, the toilet, the shower, or when you go to sleep you'll wake up in the sewer, in the dark, then Carmen will come and kill you.

Analysis: Relax, folks. There's no public record I could find of a teenage girl named Carmen Winstead perishing after being pushed down a sewer by schoolmates — not in North America, at any rate, and certainly not during the past 50 years.

That doesn't prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that it never happened, but it's reason enough to classify the tale as folklore, a ghost story, an urban legend.

It's also a chain letter, albeit circulating in the form of forwarded emails, MySpace postings, and Facebook status updates. Like every chain letter since time immemorial, its primary purpose is to achieve replication — to persuade you to pass the story along to your friends, so they'll pass it along to their friends, and so on — hence the threat of doom for those who don't comply: "If you don't repost this saying 'They pushed her,' then Carmen will get you, either from the sewer, the toilet, the shower, or when you go to sleep you'll wake up in the sewer, in the dark, then Carmen will come and kill you."
