The story may very well be just an urban legend carried over from Mexico. I grew up in the area, and back in the day, there was a neighborhood called Cudahy (I’m sure I misspelled it) and there were a lot of Mexicans who lived there which is in the area near Industrial Cline Ave and near the river. The neighborhood is long gone, but you can still see some structures remain even today.
