Ghosts and spirits are not always Humans returning from the dead.

Al Capone is one of the most famous faces in the history of organized crime as well as one of the biggest ‘names’ of the twentieth century.
His legacy is forever entwined with that of the city he almost ran, Chicago, Illinois.
Alphonse Capone would move to the Windy City of Chicago in 1920 on the heels of crime boss and mentor Johnny Torrio. Torrio had hand picked Capone for his Chicago operations, where he hoped to be become rich with bootleg liquor sales in the wake of prohibition.
Eventually Capone would become a celebrity and a very powerful man no one wished to cross. It was after one of his most infamous acts of violence, the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, that Capone would find himself haunted by the spirit of one of his victims.

As many of you are no doubt planning themes for Halloween get-togethers next month, I thought maybe Ms. Ruby Ross Goodnow could help you plan. Actually, the party below, held on "Hallowe'en" at "eight o' clock" in 1911, was also meant to be a housewarming party, for a brand new home, perhaps a bungalow or craftsman like the one pictured below.
For millennium, people across the globe have been interacting with forces that can’t be explained. Things science has yet to fully acknowledge. Creatures that are not just part of our present, but our past. You will never read their tales in an academic history book.
However, they have always been part of our cultures. This is what I call Paranormal History.
It was a dark and stormy night in 1735 when Mrs. Janet Leeds gave birth to her thirteenth child. Upon finding out she was pregnant she stated that this child would be the devil. Despite her curse, she gave birth to a healthy and normal looking baby boy.
Suddenly the innocent appearing child transformed into a beast with the head of a goat, wings of a bat, hooves for feet, and a forked tail. With a growl and a scream, it murdered the midwife that birthed it before flying out the chimney and into the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. This is a popular version of the legendary Jersey Devil, a creature that is said to have been stalking the state of New Jersey for the last two and a half centuries.
The reasons behind this rise may not be shocking, but some the results might surprise some people, especially those skeptical of the paranormal.
Clowns are a real psychological fear for some people and although they are not paranormal in the least, I just had to share this story trending currently from the UK.

He even has his own Facebook page and has invited everything from praise to death threats as the story circulates around the world.
Everything is bigger in Texas, including their paranormal tales and urban legends. Why have just one ghost when it could be a whole school bus of children, who tragically got hit by a train while crossing a set of tracks just outside San Antonio?
That is the basis for one of the most interesting tales of paranormal activity in the modern era as well as one of the most captivating photographs of purported ghostly phenomena.
Certainly one of the biggest ‘signs’ of a ghost or haunting are strange noises in the middle of the night. Hearing bumps and knocks during usual sleeping hours is classic paranormal fare, and it is one of those factors that can really divide opinion about the existence of ghosts.
Mostly because so many other things can cause creepy noises that make the mind jump over any rational thoughts and believe their home is haunted.
We have told this tale in this space before, but now another case out of the Middle East, where two teenage lovers were mistaken for a pair of unruly spirits.
Huang Jianjun decided that he had many skills that he could use in China’s Guangzhou, Guangdong Province to rid the area of paranormal activity.
One of the tools he decided to use to combat ghosts was his penis.
Las Vegas, Nevada is home to some pretty amazing spectacles and shows. It is a purely entertainment driven town, providing fun and something interesting around every corner.
The Luxor Hotel is one Las Vegas destination that might have gotten a little more then they bargained for when they opened an exhibit of relics and exhibits from and related to the Titanic.
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition includes recreated first and third class rooms done by the original manufacturers, recreations of the grand staircase and other major areas of the ship and even pats of the Titanic’s hull dragged up from the wreckage site.
But some guests and employees have reported ghostly goings on at the exhibition since it opened in 2008.

First of all, if you are a fan of this genre of film, YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE! You WILL see this movie!

The Fourth of July is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate the birth of the United States then by talking about some of the more paranormal connections shared by our presidents and those around them.
There are the ghosts connected to former presidents, such as the ghost of the man who sold most of Washington D.C. to the US Government, David Burns. There is also the infamous ghost of slain President Abraham Lincoln, who has been seen by future presidents and first ladies as well as distinguished guests.
Another paranormal connection to Washington D.C. is the mysterious connection between Lincoln and John F Kennedy, another president taken down by an assassins bullet while in office.
There are countless ghost stories that come from England, which should not come as a surprise as the area is as rich in historical architecture as it is in ghost stories.
Proof is needed however for any story that borders on the unbelievable, like ghosts or other paranormal activity.Using that criteria the Tulip Staircase photograph may count among the very best evidence of ghosts and life after death.
It seems that at times, marijuana and the paranormal go hand in hand. Although most people might think I’m saying that those seeking Bigfoot or ghosts are smoking some really choice pot, Marijuana has blown it’s smoke in the direction of the paranormal before.

This infamous ghost image took the internet by storm in 2003. It was originally published in the Chicago Sun-Times on December 21st of that year and was said to be a still of CCTV footage from the Hampton Court Palace, located on the Thames river in London, England.
Although the Hampton Court is ripe with tales of ghostly apparitions and strange occurrences, the picture of the robed figure was immediately a topic for debate for both believers and skeptics alike.
Was it an excellent ghost photograph or a clever hoax?
