Haunting Tales: Ghost of Larrabee St. (Tallman’s Ghost)

Considering that our last Haunting Tale came from one of the ghost segments of the show Unsolved Mysteries, I was hesitant to use another case that was so popular from the show.

That was before I ran into the video segment online for the Tallman’s Ghost case, which covered the story of Debbie and Allen Tallman, who thought they had found a perfect house for their family on Larrabee Street in Horicon, Wisconsin.

However, just months after moving in, the entire family was chased from the home by what seemed to be a poltergeist type of haunting that some say bordered on the demonic.

Others say that Debbie and Allen Tallman were out of their depth when buying the house, and made the story up to escape a house they could not afford.

So what did reside in the house on Larrabee Street? Was it a cold demonic force, a pesky poltergeist or the results of mistaking the normal for the extra ordinary or even fraud?

Ghostly Pics: The Back Seat Ghost

Graveyards are one of those places that you just might expect to capture a photograph of a ghost or spirit. After all, it is the final resting place of our physical forms and has an obvious connection with death and whatever might lay beyond it.

So it might not come as a shock to anyone that one of the most famous ghost photos in the world came from a cemetery.

Even more impressive, the ghost seemed keen to get a ride to some destination in the physical world as the picture itself shows the spirit sitting in the back of a car!

Ng Goon Lau, sixty two, used to work the Hong Kong real estate market to his advantage. He had no financial problems and although his path to riches was a bit off the beaten path, it certainly worked like a charm.

Ng bought and sold real estate in one of the most superstitious cities in China, if not the world. So Ng made use of this fact by dealing in property that he could buy at remarkable discounts.

Because the property’s Ng dealt in were said to be haunted.

The Haunted Texas Ranch House

The first of many Haunting Tales comes from an old Unsolved Mysteries episode from the late nineties.

It tells the story of a apparent Poltergeist type haunting in the brush lands of Texas at the Three Partners Ranch, a three thousand acre piece of land in Central Texas. There, a very loud spirit would bang on the walls and pound across the floor as it stalked the halls of the ranch three men had bought as a business venture.

It has the look of a place where you might expect to find the undead. In fact, St. Mary’s Church in Whitby‘s atmosphere is so heavily drenched in creepiness then it inspired no less then the creator of one of the most iconic horror icons of all time, Bram Stoker and his vampire creation Count Dracula.

Lately, though the village of Whitby has a new problem caused by the church. It’s getting rid of the bones in it’s graveyard spits right into the backyards of Whitby’s residents.

Sometimes we are lucky enough to have two of our favorite things bump into each other. So it was delightful to find that yet another National Basketball Association player, forward Wesley Johnson of the Phoenix Suns, had a possible paranormal experience at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

NBA players from teams such as the Miami Heat and my beloved Chicago Bulls have claimed that the hotel is haunted and it is not a surprise. The one hundred and two year old hotel has a classic haunted history filled with big names, immoral behavior and tragedy.

On December, 20th, 2012, amateur astronomer Elijah Prychodzko was gazing into the sky in Sacramento, California when a sudden flash of light seen through his telescope caught his attention.

Prychodzko placed his smartphone’s camera lens against the eyepiece of his telescope and recorded what seemed to be a disc exploding in the sky.

The story made some headlines in the local news and online earlier this year but despite the amazing video evidence, this UFO may be a little more down to Earth…

Ghosts.

You never can tell what they are going to do once they enter your lives. Cold spots, doors closing, objects tossed across the room, strange sounds like footsteps and voices…and now theft.

At least that seems to be the case for one spirit in Winder, Georgia, who haunts the home of forty year old Debbie Michelle Zamacona. The ghostly criminal reportedly made off with a resume roughly valued at five-thousand dollars and a black and blue blouse, according to a police report.
