The Graves family moved into Fox Hollow Farm in Indiana, having no idea what was waiting for them. “Paranormal Witness” recounted the legacy of the farm. Serial killer Herb Baumeister lived there, and killed at least thirteen young men before committing suicide on the property in the 1990s.
He buried their bodies around the farm. Authorities removed more than 5,000 bone fragments, but the Graves found more. They reported seeing ghosts and hearing strange knocks, but it was Joe LeBlanc, a man who rented an apartment on the property, who had the most specific encounter.
He claims to have made contact with the ghost of Herb Baumeister, even recording the session. A voice could be heard repeating the phrase, “The married one.” LeBlanc had been asking who was walking in the kitchen. As all of Baumeister’s victims had been single, he determined this answer must mean the spirit was Baumeister himself.

The University of California, Riverside (UCR) has received a $5 million grant to study the afterlife.
The money will fund research into heaven, hell, purgatory, karma and other topics, according to the university’s web site. The three-year grant has specifically gone to John Martin Fischer, distinguished UCR professor of philosophy. Fischer will start The Immortality Project, which will organize two conferences and a website with resources and links to published research on issues of immortality.

For years the Ouija Board has been connected with the paranormal. Some people swear by them and others swear at them. Personally, I don’t remember ever trying one of them but then again if I did, and it was a traumatic experience, I might not want to remember it.
Some Paranormal investigators consider the board as a direct connection to the “dark side” of the Occult. Penn & Teller say, “It’s Bullshit!”
Have you ever tried the Ouija Board? What do you think?

Featured on SyFy Channel’s “Haunted Collector.” July 11th, 2012 www.sedamsvillerectory.com Originally the “Our Lady of Perpectual Help” Catholic Rectory.
The Rectory was built over 130 years ago and is listed on the National Historic Register. It is located in historic Sedamsville, Ohio, minutes away from downtown Cincinnati, situated on the banks of the Ohio River.
The Midwest Preservation Society is working hard to restore it back to its original condition. For the first time ever, the “Rectory” is now available for overnight ghost hunts. With the facility being over 130 years old, we know there are many stories to tell.
The facility has over 6000 square feet of space and has 4 levels. The first level features a parlor, living room, library, formal dining room, kitchen, as well as a bathroom. The kitchen has a servant’s staircase going up to the second level where the servants quarters are located.
The second level features four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a beautiful staircase going to the first floor. It also has a staircase leading up to the huge attic. It is located near the servants quarters.
We have had a number of volunteers working on painting and restoring the inside of the Rectory. Several have left and promised not to return. Some have seen dark shadows or mist, other have seen movement under the doorway when only two people are working at the time.
The Rectory has had its share of deaths. We know a man was found dead on the street in front of the Rectory. We have also found that years ago a child was found dead in front of it with a noose around the child’s neck.
Guests of the rectory and workers have heard talking, footsteps, evidence of residual hauntings, sounds of children playing and crying, even sounds of screaming coming from the basement.
Father Donald MacLeod, author of The History of Roman Catholicism in North America, was struck by a train and killed in Sedamsville near this location in the late 1800′s. He was on his way to provide comfort and sermon to a seriously ill woman, when he was hit by an oncoming train on the Indianapolis and Cincinnati Railroad and killed instantly.
Many believe his spirit still haunts Sedamsville to this day.
I don’t know what the adjoining stores are but..
I think they may have a “critter” walking on the shelf behind the blankets. It accidently knocked the first one off and froze. Then continued on its journey knocking the other two blankets off the shelf. It appears all the blankets came off in a row from the same shelf.
What do you think?
