Ghosts of the Tate Murders

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?

It started off with strange noises. For example, my aunt would hear what sounded like a broom falling in the closet, or shoes shuffling in the bedroom. When she went to investigate, however, the noises stopped and everything was where she’d left it.

Soon after the noises began, weird things started happening around the house. For instance, after a night of heavy snowfall, my uncle went outside and noticed water pouring from the faucet. The handle had been turned as far as it would go, but there were no footprints in the snow. How could someone turn the faucet on without leaving tracks?

Skirvin Hotel – Oklahoma City

Built in 1911, Oklahoma City’s Skirvin Hotel is reportedly haunted by a former maid named Effie. According to local legend, Effie jumped to her death with a baby in her arms after the hotel’s owner and child’s father, W.B. Skirvin, locked her in a room to prevent a scandal. The spurned maid is now said to roam the hotel, slamming doors, peeping at men in the shower, and even propositioning male guests. Guests also report awakening to the sound of a wailing baby.
