J.W. Lynch is the founder and mayor of Ponca City, Oklahoma. When J.W. Lynch founded this town it was called Lynchville. He was a ruthless man. What ever he says goes. For that he got the criminal Billy the Kid to scare off people in his town. He also killed his own son Joseph Lynch with a fire bomb. We do not know when he died, but his spirit remained on earth. He terrorized the residence of his former home. When the owner discovered his past he tried to kill her by choking her. He was eventually exorcised out of the house.
