Bachelor’s Grove cemetery, a small abandoned graveyard located within Chicago’s Rubio Forest Preserve is said to be one of America’s most haunted places in the US.

More than 100 reports of apparations and glowing balls of light have been documented here over the years.

In 1991, Mari Huff, a member of Ghost Research Society (GRS), was snapping black and white photos with a high-speed infrared camera.

Except for her fellow investigators, the cemetery was empty. Naturally they were surprised to find a female apparition sitting on a tombstone. Parts of her body are transparent and her clothes were out of period.

The ghost hunters could offer no rational explanation other than they had actually recorded a ghost.

Meet the Pink Lady. This is one of the creepiest ghost stories I’ve run into. Make sure to watch the video at the bottom of this post.

A friend told Guy Winters about an abandoned house on the outskirts of Greencastle, Indiana where he had recently experienced what he thought to be a ghost.

Guy, being a paranormal enthusiast, grabbed some cameras and conducted a 48 hour investigation of the property.

The above photos of the house’s upstairs window were taken during Guy’s investigation. The last image is a digitally enhanced version an original photo. Guy didn’t see these figures until the photos were developed, although he did smell sulphur at the time they wee snapped. 

Photo experts verified this ghastly entity existed on the original negatives, minimizing the chances the photos were faked.

Guy visited the house again and captured these images.
