A mysterious figure is capturing the attention of social media. She’s been nicknamed “the woman in black” and she’s been spotted in different parts of east Tennessee including Madisonville, Athens, Sweetwater and now Morgan County.
Hardly anyone knows much about the so called “woman in black” spotted in the Mossy Grove area Friday.
The “woman in black” is sharing some details about herself. The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office told WCYB in the Tri-Cities area that her name is Elizabeth Poles and she’s from Motts, Alabama.
The 56 year old woman claims she’s on a bible mission and it looks like she’s making her way down south.
Last month, she was in Wise, Virginia and was captured on YouTube arguing with a man in a Walmart parking lot about religion. Videos like that and plenty of pictures posted to social media are making people pull over when they see this woman.
For most who saw her in Morgan County Friday, they can’t believe they saw the woman everyone’s been talking about.
