The Bell Witch

The Bell Witch is alleged to haunt the residence of the Bell family from Adams, Tennessee, who lived close to the Red River. Between 1817-1821, the Bell family, as well other locals in the area, were tormented by an eerie creature later depicted as a spirit of a witch. The being could talk, change its shape and make the environment behave strangely. It could even appear at different places at the same time and move at super speeds.


Chicago's Most Famous Apparition

Resurrection Mary is perhaps the most famous spirit that frequents the area of Chicago, Illinois. Several drivers claimed to have picked up a formally dressed hitchhiker in the vicinity of Resurrection Cemetery. The hitchhiker was a blue-eyed young woman adorned in a white gown and a pair of dancing shoes; she was also said to have a shawl on and a purse in her hands. Whenever a driver approached the Cemetery, the girl would ask them to pull over and so that she could leave the car. She would mysteriously vanish the moment she exited the car. It is believed that Mary was going to a party when she was hit and killed by a car which drove off. Her parents were the ones to find her and then arranged her burial in Resurrection Cemetery. The records say she was buried in the same clothes that her ghost is often seen wearing. Since the 1930s, more than 30 encounters with Ressurection Mary were reported.


Berini Family

Back in 1979, the Berini Family from New England was frequented by a spirit of a young girl. She introduced herself as Serena. Both Rose and Joe Berini were quite befuddled as they did not know anyone under such a name. However, Serena's visit could have had something to do with Daisy, Rose's daughter, who almost passed away a few days later after a tonsil removal surgery. After that, the family was haunted by spirits of children many times, including one time when Rose levitated above her bed. Exorcisms were performed on her twice, and the spirits eventually vanished.


Ghost of Kate Morgan

One day in 1892, a beautiful young lady named Kate Morgan entered a hotel in Coronado, California to check in but didn't give her real name. Sadly, after five days, the people from the hotel found her dead body. The coroner in San Diego concluded that she had committed suicide. Years after the sinister event, her ghost is said to frequent the hotel, particularly the room she had resided in. Those who reported sightings of Kate's ghost claim that she is not evil nor malicious; the only signs of her presence are breezes, ghostly pranks, and malfunctioning electronics.
