in 1966, according to John Keel, the paranormal investigator mostly know for his book
The Mothman Prophecies.
The story about the Ginning man involved 2 boys walking along a street in New Jersey in October 1966. The boys were walking in the same area that earlier that day a woman had reported being chased by a “tall, green man”, and the two were nervous about the story. They were to report later that they saw perhaps the same man, standing behind a fence in some brush, looking at a house across the road from the boys.
The being was behind them, and was wearing a green one-peice suit that reflected the streetlights nearby. It noticed the boys looking at him, turned and began to smile – a grin that stretched from ear to ear. Having elongated eyes, the boys could not make out whether the creature had ears, a nose or hair.
That same night, miles away, reports of a “bright-white” UFO began filtering in to the police, and several officers reportedly saw the object themsleves hovering near a local reservior.
Dundalk Historic District Ghost Expedition 2017/Baltimore County (“You All Look Tired”)
http://maryland-paranormal.com DRV stream (“You All Look Tired”) captured by Maryland Paranormal Research ® at the Dundalk Patapsco Neck Historical Society and Museum [Dundalk MD] Sep 30 – Oct 1 2017. The investigation was part of the National Ghost Hunting Day 2017 event. Communication streams appear to acknowledge difficulties the investigator was experiencing in hearing real-time responses due in part to fatigue (“You All Look Tired”) but primarily due to the noise floor. Some streams also appeared to indicate a presence had entered the room. Audio was captured with a SONY DCR SR45 Handycam, MACKIE 402-VLZ3 Mixer, HARMON DIGITECH 1066 Vocal Processor, ART EQ-351 31 Band 1/3 Octave Graphic Equalizer, and TIMEWAVE DSP-599zx Digital Noise Filter. The audio was further enhanced with noise filtering and limiting using AUDACITY. [HEADPHONES RECOMMENDED]
Most Spooky Castle (2017): Chillingham Castle, England
This years winner of the most spooky castle award goes to
Chillingham Castle in England. Chillingham Castle is one of the worlds most
haunted castles known for its many ghosts and rare cows (not ghost cows for
anyone wondering). It was originally built in the 12th century as a
monastery. Eventually it became a royal castle in 1344 where it occupied a
strategic position during Northumberland’s bloody border feuds. Visitors to the
castle included King Henry III, King Edward I, James I, Charles I, and the
infamous Henry VIII. During WWII the castle was used as a barracks until a
baronet purchased the estate and restored it to its former glory. Today the
castle is surrounded by a park which is the home to about 90 rare wild cows.
Other than being known for its cows, the castle is well known for its ghosts.
One of the most famous ghosts in the castle is that of the
“Radiant Boy.” This spirit is a young child who can be seen floating around the
Pink Room. His cries can be heard echoing throughout the hallways at the stroke
of midnight. For a while the cries seemed to come from a spot where there is a
passage cut into the wall into the adjoining tower. As the cries disappeared a
white light would appear and the figure of a young boy dressed in blue would
approach those within the room. While the room was undergoing renovations, the
bones of a young child, surrounded by fragments of blue cloth, were found
within the walls. The bones were removed and given a proper burial. For a while
the Blue Boy was seen no longer. However once the room was rented out again to
weary travelers, reports of a blue flash shooting out of the wall began to
Another ghost seen within the castle is the White Pantry
Ghost. At one point in time the Castles silver was stored in what was known as
the The Inner Pantry. One night while a guard was guarding the silver he was
approached by a very pale woman in white begging him for water. Thinking it was
a castle guest, the guard turned to get the water. At this point he remembered
that he was locked in the room and that no on else could have possibly entered.
This same figure is still seen begging for water today. It is thought that, due
to the nature of her begging for water, she had died from poisoning.
The ghost of the former Lady Berkeley can be heard walking
through the castle corridors. In life Lady Berkeley was the wife of Lord Grey.
However, Lord Grey ran off with her own sister, Lady Henrietta. As a result
Lady Berkeley was left abandoned in the castle. Today visitors can hear the
rustle of her dress as she walks along. Visitors also note a cold chill when
she goes past.
There are many other spirits to haunt the castles. Those who
stay overnight in the chambers have reported feeling uneasy and as if something
were watching them. In the Chapel the voices of two men talking are often
heard. No one knows what they are saying as the words are impossible to make
out and they stop talking if one tries to seriously listen. Also, at night in
the Courtyard people have reported seeing figures and walking shadows.

Most Spooky Hospital (2017): Clark Airbase Hospital,
The winner of this years Most Spooky Hospital award goes to
Clark Airbase Hospital. Not only is this location eerie because it is
abandoned, but it is also incredibly haunted. This hospital was featured in
National Geographic’s series “I Wouldn’t Go In There,” and was reported by
Ghost Hunters International to be one of the most haunted places in the world.
Clark Air Base was previously a United States military
facility from 1903 to 1991. During WWII and the Vietnam War it was used as a
hospital for injured and dying military personnel. Now it is thought that many
of these personnel never left. Those who have visited the facility have
reported seeing the apparitions of soldiers walking throughout the halls. Strange
orbs will often float by and doors will open and slam shut by themselves.
Visitors have also heard screams and voices emanating throughout the abandoned
facility. Some of the ghosts are also known to be violent as visitors have
sometimes been pelted with items by an unseen force.
