Everyone has a feeling that their family has a mysterious, long buried secret, something they suspect but have never been able to find the evidence to prove. As children, we’ve all imagined discovering secret buried treasures or adventures through hidden bookcases that lead us to uncover something that’s been lost for generations. But what if it really happened? What if family lore came to life?

Recently, in Tampa, Florida, this is exactly what happened for one brother and sister when they unearthed a strange and obscure box from the attic of their grandparents’ house. Last year, when Maria Lopez was cleaning out her grandparents’ home, she stumbled across something that seemed to confirm a family legend … something that was completely creepy.

Maria and Mike Lopez have very fond memories of growing up with their grandfather Ernesto, a marvelous storyteller, who would tell them legends of the Spanish pirate Jose Gaspar. Little did they know that one day they would be included in Gaspar’s legend.
