The Ghosts of the Topping Massacre

October 27, 2022

There are some stories that are so startling you’d think they would make it beyond their county’s limits. 

If you grew up around Woodstock, you’ve probably heard of the Topping family. The Topping farmhouse was on Lot Eight on Cuthbert Road, Concession Six just south of Sweaburg in Southwest-Oxford. And it was in that farmhouse that Timothy Topping massacred his family on a chilly winter morning.

But, this is not just another murder case, it’s grown into a whole lot more. 

Maybe you’ve gone out to Critter’s Lane yourself, late at night with your friends, hoping to catch a glimpse of a ghost. Could these ghosts be the spirits of the Topping family, lingering in the last place they were happy together?

In this episode of the 519 Podcast, we look at the Topping family tragedy and whether or not the ghosts of the victims still haunt the area.
