In the very center of Windber Pennsylvania (USA), lies the 130-year-old Grand Midway Hotel; an imposing building that is home to film maker Blair Murphy, and the world’sLargest Ouija board.

Many wonder how one comes to own such a haunted location, which, prior to it being confirmed as setting an eerie new record title, was featured on several national television shows, the SyFY channel, research books, and paranormal investigations for its reported ghostly activity.
As it turns out, Blair, who now lives inside the building with his girlfriend and newborn daughter, happened to stumble on the property after opening an email.
According to the independent movie maker, the results were terrifying.

“Things flipped out throughout the hotel.  Energies were swirling.  Guests were getting completely freaked out,” says Blair, “it seemed to kick things up into an entire new level of paranormal activity.  We were seeing floating people and hearing voices and even the hotel pets were flipping out and reacting to unseen forces. Our dreams were pretty wild.  And it wasn’t just us.  Other longer-term hotel residents were saying ‘there is absolutely something going on here’ and having their own middle of the night weird encounters.”

It was aired on Friday night’s show when sightings of a large man in the stable block were being investigated.

Yvette Fielding’s team recorded the footage. She said: “To date this has to be the most ground-breaking footage we have ever recorded.

“But rather than giving us the answer we were looking for, it just gave us more questions.

“Was it the presence of the spirit of a long dead soul, a doppelganger, Stone Tape Replay or something else we are never supposed to understand?”

Karl Beattie filmed the footage and said: “We’ve never seen anything like this before and we really don’t have an explanation for what we saw but the replay of the filming, clearly shows the vision in detail.

“It’s a weird, weird place.”

Scientist is seeking Loch Ness Monster’s DNA

Image result for loch ness monster

A 1934 photo supposedly depicting the Loch Ness Monster. The photo was revealed as a hoax in 1994. Photo supplied.

Professor Neil Gemmell is hoping to acquire a DNA sample of the legendary Scottish lake monster.

Several researchers have attempted to locate signs of a large creature in the depths of Loch Ness over the years, but while to date their efforts have come up empty, there’s a chance that modern science may have finally caught up enough to solve the mystery once and for all.

Professor Gemmell, who heads up the anatomy department at the University of Otago in New Zealand, is looking to collect and analyze samples from the loch because he believes that modern genomic technology is now sensitive enough to be able to detect the creature’s cells in the water.

To determine what type of creature the monster is, all he would need to do is filter out the genetic data for all known animals in the loch to see what’s left afterwards.

“Is there anything in Loch Ness that looks different from everything else ?” he said.

“It started out as an idea that I voiced on Twitter with some other colleagues, and it’s been picked up and it seems to have grown some legitimate legs.”

While the project still needs funding in order to go ahead, Loch Ness Project leader Adrian Shine has expressed an interest in helping out by collecting the necessary water samples.

“I would be very interested in the results,” he said.

‘White Lady’ spooks park visitors in Rochester

‘White Lady’ spooks park visitors in Rochester

A tree in Durand-Eastman Park sports a ghostly visage thanks to the destructive effects of Mother Nature.

The phenomenon, which at a distance looks like a wailing specter with its arms outstretched, is actually an area of torn-up tree trunk caused by a recent spate of strong wind.

The eerie human-like form however is particular fitting as the park has long been home to a ‘White Lady’ or ‘Lady of the Lake’ legend dating all the way back to the 19th century.

The story goes that the ghost of a woman wanders the park in search of her daughter who was murdered by a group of hoodlums. Depending on which version of the tale you read, it is also said that the woman either died of a broken heart or killed herself out of grief for her loss.

There have been several sightings of the lady’s ghost in the park over the years with the legend becoming so well known that it was even featured in the 1988 movie ‘Lady in White.’

“I think it’s spooky… it’s definitely pretty creepy,” said park visitor Jamal Bollar.

$1M is being offered for capture of Bigfoot

$1M is being offered for capture of Bigfoot

The substantial cash prize has already prompted quite a buzz in Ohio where a new photograph has emerged.

Bigfoot Project Investments, Inc. is offering the chance to win a $1 million ‘Bigfoot Bounty’ in exchange for “information leading to the capture or delivery of a bona fide Bigfoot.”

The controversial challenge runs from April 2nd until December 25th.

So lucrative is the sum of money on offer in fact that the team behind the challenge have already found themselves being called out to Ohio to investigate a reported Bigfoot sighting in Girard.

The witness was Youngstown resident Xavier King who claimed he had been driving home recently when he caught sight of a strange creature.

“I had seen something, I don’t know what it was, I had seen something, that’s all I know. I got out and took a picture,” he said.

Sadly though, due to the fact that it has been submitted as part of the $1M challenge, the photograph has not been released to the public and probably won’t be until the end of the year.

Whether anyone will have been able to claim the prize by then remains to be seen.
