Capture Made at Historic 15th Century Building

I think a warm body was captured, not a “ghost,” but I thought this might stir some conversation. Photo is on original story, follow link below. Let us know what you think.

An experienced ghost hunter claims to have captured the terrifying image of a woman in the grounds of a historic 15th Century building.

Erica Gregory, 49, spent the night with other members of her paranormal activity group in Turton Tower in Bolton, Lancashire – in a bid to gather physical evidence showing the presence of something out there.

The group spent most of their time indoors but it was Erica’s impromptu trip outside for a bit of fresh air that unearthed the most exciting discovery of the evening.

Erica said: ‘When outside I saw an old tree, it must have been about 100 years old. Looking at the tree, I felt there was a kind of mist forming around it.

Buried Treasure: Saddle Ridge Hoard

In the coin collecting world, part of what adds to a coin’s value, besides the quality of the coin, is the story that goes along with it, and these coins have a whopper of a tale to tell.

One morning in February 2013, a couple living in northern California was out walking their dog on their property– in California gold country. One of them saw an old, moss-covered tin can that was half-buried in the mud. They used a stick to dig the can out and scrape the can clean. When the can, which was sealed on both ends, was opened it revealed a treasure trove of gold coins.

Burbon Street Blood Bath

Preface
When I first learned of this case, it had been transmogrified. I already knew that legends change from telling to telling, but this story is an excellent example of how the stories we hear aren’t always as they seem. What I had heard about a “vampire murder” was, in fact, a much greater tragedy. I briefly talk about my quest for truth in a previous blog article called “New Orleans Vampire Murder: A Lesson in Truth“. This article approaches the story from a different angle– it contains further details of the crime and investigation as described in the television broadcast of the Investigation Discovery network’s show “Dead of Night”. Tuesday, March 26, 2013 was when they first broadcast the episode titled “Bourbon Street Bloodbath” which regards this phantasmagorical murder. Because of the interest in this story, I’ve decided to summarize the details presented in the episode of Dead of Night.

Once again, please note that comments to this article have been CLOSED. This blog is NOT a memorial. It’s NOT meant to berate or glorify those involved in the murder. This is NOT a place to grieve for those who have lost their lives in conjunction with this event. This article was written for the purpose of conveying information about the event and also to correct misinformation being spread throughout the paranormal community. Continue reading

Gore residents devastated after rumoured ‘ghost church’ burns to ashes

This is appalling. People have no morals anymore. They think they can go anywhere and do anything without consequences. It’s truly a sad state of affairs.

Residents in a small town south of Morin Heights are devastated after their tiny, ancestral church was burnt to the ground.

For years, the community of Gore fought to preserve St. John’s Shrewsbury Anglican Church, built in the 1830s. Due to rumours the tiny church was haunted, it was vandalized repeatedly over the years, but no one imagined it would be destroyed by arson.

Once the heart of a vibrant community, the church was a powerful symbol, said local resident Jason Morrison, who serves as one of the town’s municipal inspectors.

Historic and haunted Jamaica Inn for sale

If you have a cool £2m just laying around begging to be used, where better to invest it than the famous smuggler’s inn made famous by the Daphne du Maurier book of the same name? There’s a pretty good guarantee on a very big return on the investment with the television adaptation of Ms du Maurier’s book coming out in a few months.

You can stay in cottages on the estate surrounding Chatsworth, probable model for Pemberley in Pride and Prejudice, or in the grounds of Menabilly, the house on which Daphne du Maurier based Manderley, the fictional estate in her novel Rebecca. Much more unusual, though, is the kind of opportunity that presented itself this week with the news that Jamaica Inn is up for sale – a chance to own a property that inspired a celebrated book, assuming you have £2m to spare. Du Maurier wrote her period tale of Cornish smugglers after staying at the former coaching inn on Bodmin Moor in 1930, and – unlike in Rebecca – used the place’s real name.

What’s It Like Living in a Haunted House?

Edwin Gonzalez’s wife Lillian is the one who fell in love with the home.

“Since she was a little girl, she’s always wanted a Victorian,” he explained. It was Thanksgiving 2008 and Lillian’s sister sent her the Gardner, MA listing. Three days later, Edwin and Lillian went to see the home.

“The minute we walked in, we felt like we were going back in time,” Gonzalez said. “Lillian said, ‘This is mine!’ It was a dream home, really, it’s very charming. It calls you in.”

They bought the home and moved in about six months later. That’s when they started hearing rumors about the stately Victorian. Apparently, their dream home was haunted.

Haunted Health Food Store

Everything else in Great Britain is haunted, why not a health food store? There’s a video to view on the Huffington Post’s website. You be the judge.

A health food store in Whitstable, Great Britain, seems to be attracting a new sort of customer — Ghosts.

Of course, the new clientele might also be pranksters.

Recently, a surveillance video at the Whitstable Nutrition Centre captured a clip showing a box of tea bags slipping out of a store shelves and floating mysteriously in mid-air.
