La Muerta Blanca

Estimated reading time — 3 minutes

I am currently sitting in front of my computer, scared witless. Any moment now I am going to be killed.

Today a friend of mine told me a story.

His aunt had taken care of him since he was a small boy, and she told him last night about how his parents died. He did a very fair imitation of her (I knew them both pretty well):


“They were doing mission work in some nasty little South American country when a man burst into the mission hospital one night, terrified out of his mind. He told them that his sister had been killed by a Muerta blanca, and that he was certain that it was coming for him next. What is a Muerta blanca? Apparently it was some sort of bogey-man, something like that dumb chupacabra or whatever. They called it the White Death or the White Girl, because it was the soul of someone who hated life so much that they came back in their shrouds to kill those who told of them.

The man had been told about the vengeful spirit by his sister hours before her death. It was a girl with dead, black eyes that wept bile. The thing moved without ever actually moving its legs, and it stalked its victims back to their homes. Now, if you weren’t already aware that this thing was following you, once it got back to your house, it would start knocking on your door…

Once for your skin, which she’ll use to patch her own decaying flesh.

Twice for your muscle, which she’ll gnash her teeth on between victims.

Thrice for your bones, which she’ll make knives to pick her teeth and kill her victims.


Four times for your heart, which she’ll wear around her neck.

Five times for your teeth, which she’ll polish and keep in a box.

Six times for your eyes, which she’ll see the faces of your loved ones through.


Seven times for your soul, which she’ll eat whole – you can never pass while you’re in her stomach.

She has to repeat this on any mirror or door between you and her.

You can try to outrun her, but she’s faster than the fastest man. And if you leave your home while she’s knocking on your door, she won’t be so courteous when she catches up to you.

Now the man was certain that this thing had killed his sister, that he had tried to tell the police, but they would not listen. Next he had tried to tell his priest, but the priest turned him away when he saw that the thing was following him now – oh, that’s right, I forgot about that – it can only get you if you tell someone else about it, or you saw it kill someone else. The man, after finishing his tale, stole a car from the mission, and was never seen again.”

Apparently his mother and father had immediately called his aunt about this when it happened. They were found in the morning, skinned and dismembered. Their bodies were covered in tiny, child-like handprints.”


His aunt was really drunk the night before, and had told him about that. He told me this story early in the morning today at school, before the cops arrived. His aunt had been murdered that night. I called him later that night, and he told me that he was being chased by someone, and now they were knocking on his door. I told him to stop shitting me.

He held the phone away from his face for a minute, and I could hear slow, deliberate knocking. A moment later, I heard the door rip from its hinges and the dying screams of my friend.

Then a little girl’s voice spoke over the line: “WITNESS.” I hung up.

Three minutes ago someone started knocking on my door. She has to knock 28 times on my front door, 28 times on the mirror in the hall, and another 28 times on the door to my bedroom. She’s doing it slowly… I think she wants to scare me some more, let me know that my death is just moments away. I will not run – I couldn’t get to my car in time anyway. She started knocking on my bedroom door a minute ago, she should be done any moment.

Nice knowing you guys, it’s been fuy5

    What happens if you just open the door while she is knocking? Will you die faster or does she keep knocking?

    but hey I guess I came here to get scared and YOU, SIR, DELIVERED THE FEAR

    though I think I will be freaked out to answer any door or if I hear any knocks at all for the rest of my life T.T

  3. I wonder what would happen if you opened the door before she started knocking… would she leave or just kill you and do nothing to your corpse.

    Personally i’d shoot her until i’m left with one round, after all there was nothing said about her being immortal; but if that don’t do anything then i’m sure a bullet to my head would hurt a lot less than being skinned or whatever.. since the story never told us if she killed you first.

  4. Creepypasta Survivalist/Reviewer

    The Muerta Blanca tracks me down in the middle of the night and begins to knock. Unfortunately for her, I took the Survival Guide’s advice and consecrated sulfuric acid. Once she enters, the spray bottles will go off, giving me time to break out the big guns…..a zanpakto.
    This is actually a well developed story. I actually think I heard of a legend similar to this in Ecuador.
    Fun Fact:
    The zanpakto in the survival section is a direct reference to the anime and manga series Bleach. And of course, the pasta Survival Guide was mentioned.

  5. Imagine her face when she sees the 1000 mirrors I have placed between my front door and bedroom. Sucker.

  6. Wow. I am addicted to reading and listening to horror stories. I have read this and watched this particular story over 5 times now.

  7. Funny how people keep recreating the story. When I first read it it did traumatize me. But then I had a realisation of how stupid it sounds.Say this hoe hates herself then how come she is always using others body parts to replenish hers. Sounds like jeepers creepers. She needs sex for defo.

  8. Damn it, CreepyPasta, you finally killed me. Then again, its just a story, right? I mean come on, what is the likelihood that la mejbb

  9. CassieEatsCockroaches

    Haha I heard this awhile back. Started carrying lots of mirrors around. If she comes for me, she’ll have to work for it! 8D

  10. people should know that this is to humor us its all fake why get scared u wnt die just tell somone she isnt real she is fake its ok tell somone she isnt real


  11. creepy but tasty

    Good pasta i would read it again it was scary believe it or not ill give it a ten out of ten
    NOTES: I read some of the comments but people dnt get why he told us but i do his friend called him and told him plus he heard him get killed and the little girl said WITNESS so to rap it up great pasta loved mmwaahh kiss the chef

  12. Shub Niggurath (apparently the OTHER)

    This was pretty good, if someone knocks on my door tonight I’m going to have a heart attack. Like I did for a minute when I was reading the comments and somebody else had used my username that I use on all these other sites… I didn’t know what was going on, but I’ve been on here all day long and I was pretty sure it meant something BAD was going to happen!

  13. OMIGOD!!!! Smart Guy!!!! I just read your post and I think that woiuld be a great idea because someone just knocked on my front door 28 times then on my mirriors and now its knocking on my bedroom door, I’m scared as hell right now I don’t want to die!!! Theres a mirrior in my room that I’m going to break and eat the smallest piece like you said to do,to baad it was to latie for yuoumk please excudjsed the bad spellngh, my hannds are shakeng right now, I think I’ll hjave enoughj time to eat the smallest piece of tye mirriorzrieowpzcx,m5yyyyyyjgvbbbbgyhb5redbh n fczsg34esdWITNESS

  14. Okay, all you have to do is smash your mirror into pieces, and eat the smallest one, break one in half even, then she wont be able to kill you ’til you crap, I’m gonna get right on i5=erwioafjzds;cmx,WITNESS

  15. This is ridiculous. I don’t believe in all this paranoramal crap. If she tried to come into MY room, I’d kick a soccer ball at her fa-hne


  16. Gotta tell you.
    I really love this.
    But uh…if you would NOT make me jump of the sound of my step mom opening and closing kitchen cabinets? That’d be greeaaat. e_e

  17. Um…. this seriously scared the heck out of me. XD
    I don’t understand the candlejack or “who was” thing….
    Wha does that mean? >.>
    Anyways, I was even afraid to tell my mom this cuz she would be
    a witness! D: But she doesn’t believe it cuz no spirit girl will come
    knocking on our doweidwdjoor53545555555


  18. People are saying \"why tell us if its going to get him killed?\" well, if you pay attention, the girl tells him WITNESS, which means hes screwed anyway. And now we\’re witnesses. get it?

  19. OH SHIT! DAMN YOU! Fucking scared me right after I was done reading this my mom knocked on my door and I swear I thought I shit myself!

  20. awesome story!!! knocking is freaky! anticipation of the thing is actually worse than the event itself. creepy how he wrote till the last second. OH SHIT. just realized that makes us all witnesses. damn. i’m still a virgin. maybe someone in my dorm can fix that before SHE comes knocking.

  21. Wait, slight issue. Either he sent it before dying, which means it can’t be altered, or else he was killed before it was sent, in which case this ghost has a VERY loose definition of witness

    Also, hmm… let’s see… Now La Muerta Blanca is after me, and I am certain that Slenderman will come after me soon due to me becoming so obsessed with him. Now all I need to do is say Cand-I mean, you know who’s name when they arrive, then offer my soul to the devil, and I can have a party!

  22. Wait, if the person who wrote this was killed before they could finish then how was this story posted? Lol I doubt the ghost wouuh53jh


  23. What happens if I’m Mike Tyson? I can knock this bitch out, in the first round. When she starts knockin’ I’m a punch a hole through the door.

  24. guys, if she comes for you, take a few mirrors and shatter them. each piece is like a tiny mirror, and she has to knock on every single piece before she can get to you! :D it’s the perfect pla4igj WITNESS

  25. Scared out of my fucking mind right now my door is currently closed and my friend started knocking on it
    Great story though

  26. TheGreatMightyPoo

    what if u open the door for her? what happens? if she never knocks and u open the door, wtf happens?

  27. Revolver Ocelot

    There’s knocking at my door, I shot through it…no blood….I don’t have much time, tell my mother I lovfdsc

  28. my first trought after reading this was: “FUCK WE’RE FUCKED” (exact words)
    i liked this story. I like how the girl herself is never described accurately and the feeling of an unstoppable chain behind this: the sister of the guy told him about la muerta blanca, the guy told it at the friend’s parents, they told it to the aunt who told it to the boy who told it to the protagonist of the story who told it to everyone on the internet. Deserves a 7/10 at least.


  30. If lots of people read this at the same time at different locations, who will Witness kill first? lol

    Maybe someone should tell the story then call candlejack so they’ll meet at someone’s house then Witness and candlejack could live happily ever after.

  31. Would’ve been more awesomer if someone had knocked on something in my house afterwards.




    my sister just came back from school at 9:10 am cause it’s closed. of course, she’s locked out so she starts hammering on the front door.


  33. I just don’t get why everybody’s saying ‘WITNESS’ at the end of their posts.all they’re doing is84uihefj


  34. Great, great story. One of the best here. Has that “urban legend” feel to it like the old “Bloody Mary” stories we used to tell each other as kids.

  35. Shit I just told my friend about this and now I’m scared as fuck.
    Oh god guys….
    oh shit I’m so scared….
    That’s weird.
    Maybe it was all in my head or someth01az

  36. Wow, that was pretty good. Pretty sure that black-eye bile weeping thing came from hero’s. But on the whole good.

    Hang on, someones knocking on my door…


  37. I love how everyone in the comments is typing “Witness” even though they’re

    a) not telling about the Girl
    b) did not witness the killing (yes, reading about it doesn’t count as a “wit5fffffffffffffffffffffff


  38. Brohan and Brosef

    All those people are real douchebags. If they just stop telling the freaking story, nobody would die, you knWITNESS

  39. Wait, so does this mean we’re all witnesses? So…are we all gonna die? This story was such bullshiklnsfam WITNESS

  40. @ The “Who” when they call “who’s there”:

    He was a witness. He was going to die anyways, he just wanted to let us know what happened, have record record of his death, etc.

  41. when i say the last WITNESS it is sent to US who read this story and have proof of her death so basically we all should die XD

  42. another pry to late to be read, but i will say my piece none the less.

    you say its stupid because her telling would get her killed, but she was already doomed. She was witness to her friends death. if you recall what the ghost said on the phone – WITNESS! basically you know what happened and ima kill u. so she told us so we were warned… but notice at the end of the story she says – its been fun! but while dieing or attacked she spells – its been “fuy5”. this proves here death and thus the last line which was sent by the white lady… WITNESS

    if you didnt get any of that… well ok then lol

  43. theguywhoreadsthis

    people are stupid they say the author is stupid for writing this if it’s going to kill him if they read it properly it was already gonna kill him because he was a l9nfgd

  44. I hate Bovius for breaking my brain.

    Also, creepypasta is hilariouspasta, and it’s definitely because of the key word there. I can totally hear this little kid saying it trying to act all scary and badassm complete with the hissed s’s and everything, and just totally failing in the attem8u9

    …Fuck, I just failed that particular test of my apparently meagre self control.

  45. Wait, hehe, at the end for her to write witness it means that she had to send the story here to be posted. Imagine if he had really slow upload, she’d be getting really frustrated.

  46. It’s time for math fun! Let’s say we’re all “witnesses”, and each of our homes has 3 doors/mirrors between us and the White Death. We’ve all read this, so we know everyone here’s going to die. Let’s say it takes 1 second per knock, and the chica takes 60 seconds to get to the home of her next victim. Let’s also assume kills are instantaneous, that she’s been very busy since the story was posted, and let’s say it was posted 30 days ago.

    She starts knocking on your front door. How long do you have until she reaches you?

    30 days = 2592000 seconds, which means she’s killed about 494 people:

    n = 494; (21 * (n + 1) * n / 2) + (60 * 494) = 2597205

    You know she’s killed those 494, so she takes 10374 seconds, or about 2.88 hours, to get to you.

    Extra credit: How long has this story been floating around the interwebs for people to witness? How long would you expect the White Death to knock before she reaches you? How many people would you have to know about her killing for her to take 60 years (your appreciable adult life) to finish knocking?

    Also, WHO WAS PHONE??

  47. For all you people that don’t understand the knocking thing, she knocks a total of 28 times.

    (1+2+3+4+5+6+7 = 28).

  48. This is stupid, why didn’t the aunt die sooner. The parents told her before they died which was when the friend was a small boy. Therefore, she should have died long ago.

  49. I love this one. So great. It keeps the ‘slow knock’ cliche alive and brix inducing! Did anyone notice that the way he typo’d at the end… It was like he was clawing at his keyboard, trying to crawl away.

    Y for his right hand jutting from it’s desired path
    And 5 as his left claws at his keyboard. unintended awesome?

  50. I’m going to buy a hundred mirrors and line them all the way through my house. I’m going to cover the fucking walls in mirrors, it’ll take her forever to knock on all those8oq


  51. Hmm… what if you told someone the story and then said CandleJack… would they wind up seeghaojifadj WITN

  52. OK, some people are stupid.

    The reason she’s telling the story is because she’s already going to die for being a witness. Keeping silent would not have saved her.

  53. If I heard seven knocks at my front door I would rush to the bathroom, take an aerosol can, and smash my bathroom mirror into a thousand little pieces and then lay them in a row in my hallway going to my room where I would shut the door, smash my full body mirror, and repeat the process before climbing out my window and driving into the fucking sunset.

  54. So what if you just answered the door then while she was knocking? Would she kill you then or finish the ritual?

  55. damn you cthulhu, why’d you post here? now everyone but us elder gods are going to go insane anytime they read the comments. that story was really good, tho, surprisingly so.

  56. ahahaaaaaaaaa SHIT again i had to fight her off before with a pellet gun and a blunt knife… now i’m pregnant

    i’m male

  57. Kira Jesus Yamato

    Thank god I’m sitting inside the Freedom Gundam right now, that bitch will have to get through a hail of railguns, beam blasts and plasma cannon shots, and honsetly, I’d like to see the bitch try it.

  58. I’ve always hated this one…
    I mean, I love the story. It’s just, one continuous typo bugs me- it should be “La Muerte Blanca”, not “La Muerta Blanca”. “La Meurte Blanca” means “The White Death” and “La Muerta Blanca” means “The Dead White Woman/Girl.”

  59. I’ve read this before. It’s not bad, kind of sad in a way somone so young could hate life and the world. Pretty good.

  60. Isn’t it weird how this pasta would have been pretty mediocre if not for that last word? And it ended up being fucking awesome?

  61. Yeah, like some other people said, this story is similar to the candlejack story because 8fhy40w8 WITN

  62. we rather liked it it made us feal nice and warm inside keap up the good word
    p.s. we hate how all of them are really long now i like some sort and some long b/c we just don’t have enough time

  63. At the end at WITNESS, bricks were shat.

    I’m going to have nightmares tonight, and not just her but that little girl from the F.E.A.R. games too.

  64. MisterVercetti

    Glad I’m not the only one who was reminded of Candlejack. If you think of it, the similarities are rather rema

  65. Not that scary. Very predictable. Leaves the story dead, because noone in their right mind would tell the tale if they knew that telling would lead to your death.

  66. MetalGearBidoof

    I remember that one from a while ago.
    Great story, though the many times I read it have proven the lack of trhuu



    Um, yes… yes it was, Caedus. Unless you’re implying that I like arguing over meaningless things?

  68. So I’m confused a little. Does La Muerta Blanca knock seven times total, or does she/it knock more than that.

    I mean, the way it’s written it could be:

    Seven knocks, one for each part of you it wants.


    1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 = 28 times.

  69. Weird Guy Across The Street

    @ everyone:
    It doesn’t matter if he tells or not. He was a witness to one of the murders. She’s going to get him anyway.

  70. What do you mean Witness? I didnt see her kill anyone, neither did i hear it ? Does that mean that if i read about the paper about murder im also witness to that? Stupid-ass girl, doesn’t know the definition of witness. Go peel your own skin off.

  71. It’s called Witness!

    I read this a long time ago, with much better grammar and spelling. I was kinda creepy then, but I’ve seen it enough that it doesn’t phase me anymore. Good story.

  72. This story scared the crap out of meeee.

    @Dirjel: She knocks more like:
    One two
    One two three
    One two three four
    And so on and so forth. If you add it up it makes twenty-eight.

  73. @The One Hiding Under Your Bed, He already witnessed his friend being killed so whether he told someone or not, he’s dead.

    He’s just spreading the wealth. lol

    Nice pasta!

  74. @The “Who” when they call “Who’s There”, Dr. Malpractice

    The ghost kills someone when
    a) They tell someone about the ghost
    b) They witnessed it killing someone

    So since he heard his friend dying over the phone, he’s considered a witness. And at the end, obviously, similar to the candlejack story, the ghost comes after him before he can finish his sente

  75. Wait, I don’t understand.

    Why does she have to knock 28 times on each door? It says seven knocks on each door or mirror. Even if the writer meant 28 knocks total, it still wouldn’t make sense, because there are only 3 portals she needs to pass.

    Or maybe I’m dumb. Halp plz?

  76. Sir Shoop Woopington

    i could have sworn i read this one on this site before
    i mean i loved it but i could swear that i read it already

  77. Personally, though, I heard this about a month ago in video form (it was really creepy, more believable, from the pov of someone’s webcam, which makes the WITNESS at the end make more sense).
    I haven’t been able to easily get to sleep for about a month.

  78. Dr. Malpractice

    @ The “Who” when they call “Who’s There”:

    I don’t think that it’s the narrator who says ‘Witness’ at the end. From the rest of the story, I got that the ghost says that right after she kills someone.

  79. Haha. I remember reading this after Stumbling on the intarwebz a while ago. I was like ‘generic creepypasta…quite good but not spectacuHOLYCRAP WITNESS?!?!’

    Made me paranoid for the rest of the night.

    1. I know this comment is years old, but still. He did say that anyone that witnesses it is also targeted. This guy knew that he was going to die anyway, so why not share his story before it was too late? And think, this story is even creepier because now every single person that reads this is a Witness, and every one is now going to be followed by the White Death…. So… You may want to pay more attention next time you hear knocking on your front door…

    1. The Wind Blowing Through your Hair

      They told you because it’s a creepypasta, that’s kind of the point. You came here to read short horror stories and you were just told one.

  80. Dr. Malpractice

    I was wondering why this wasn’t already here. Great story; about as close as you can come to a classic when you’re talking about internet short fiction.
