On August 9, 1969, five members of the Manson family murdered actress Sharon Tate and four others at Tate’s Los Angeles home. Now, at least one homeowner near the former Tate residence believes the murder victims haunt his property.
“I’ve had many esteemed psychics and mediums here, and they all say that the spirits of those that were killed have unfinished business and they will not crossover until the murderers are also dead,” the homeowner told LA Weekly. “I’ve seen infrared video footage of balls of light and shadow figures on many occasions and my figurines that stand in a very active room fall over without any help, often. I know it’s them.”
The photo below is alleged proof of the haunting. Do you think the Manson victims still haunt the site of their murder?
On August 4th, 1892, someone took an axe to Andrew and Abby Borden inside their Fall River, Massachusetts home. Though police suspected Andrew’s daughter Lizzie, a jury acquitted her of the crime. The gruesome murders made international headlines and inspired the famous rhyme:
Lizzie Borden took an axe
And gave her mother forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one.
Given the gory history of the Borden home, it’s hardly surprising the building has a haunted reputation. Strange events at the property include the sound of a woman weeping, muffled conversations in empty rooms, and shoes shuffling across the floor. One maid reportedly quit after seeing the indention of a body on a bed in Abby’s room.
Ghost Adventures and Ghost Hunters both investigated the home, as have several other paranormal investigation teams. Prefer to explore the property yourself? Visitors can tour the old home, now a bed and breakfast, or spend a night in the room where Abby was brutally murdered. For those who can’t travel, ghost cam subscriptions are also available.
