Dress shop ghost has become 'valuable member of staff'

Katy, inside her haunted shop

Katy Duplock regularly hears thuds from empty rooms within the store and has seen a "strange mist" in the air where human bones believed to belong to a young girl were once discovered. 

A fancy dress shop owner has told of how one of her most valuable members of staff is a GHOST who helps find missing items. 

Katy Duplock, 39, regularly hears thuds from empty rooms within the store, and has seen a "strange mist" in the air over a spot in the cellar where, according to local legend, human bones believed to belong to a young girl were once discovered. 

But Katy believes the spook – who has been named Sarah – is friendly, adding that she is a " valuable member of staff ". 

She said: "Whenever we lose something, we ask Sarah to help find it, and minutes later there it is. 
"I'm sure she's friendly so it doesn't bother me. She's never hurt anyone before so I don't see why she would now." 
Katy, who owns The Party Shop in Mold, Flintshire, only recalls one experience where she felt afraid.

She said: "I was down in the cellar and saw a mist form over where the bones were found. 
"I thought I had something in my eye, but I rubbed it and the mist was still there. 

"I asked her to go away because it was freaking me out and the mist vanished." 

The legend of the haunted shop is well known within in the town, with number of locals claiming to have seen a young girl's face peering out of one of the shop's upstairs windows.

Mr Furst, 45, said: 'When we looked at the picture Stephen suddenly said: "What the hell is that?"

'I couldn't believe my eyes - it looked like an old man wearing an old tweed coat walking down the road into the tunnel.
'What was so striking was that it was a busy road and he wasn't looking behind him or paying any attention to any of the cars. 

'In fact, we must have driven right through him just after the picture was taken.'
Stephen Smyth and George Furst spotted the figure, who appears to be wearing tweed, after checking one of their photographsThe duo believe the apparition could be someone who drowned in the nearby River Lee. 

Mr Furst said: 'The tunnel isn't that old so it's unlikely that it is someone who died in the tunnel.He looks a bit like a butler to me, possibly from the Downton Abbey period.'
'He looks a bit like a butler to me, possibly from the Downton Abbey period, as if he has left a nearby manor house and gone for a walk and drowned in the river.' 

Mr Furst, who is originally from Liverpool but has lived in Cork for the last eight years, added that he originally wanted to send the picture to his family back in England pretending it was the Mersey tunnel.

Don’t Drive On These 27 Haunted Streets In South Carolina…Or You’ll Regret It

There’s no doubt in anyone’s minds that South Carolina holds a lot of ghosts. It’s one of the oldest states in the United States and therefore there are tons of tragedies and happenings that punctuate its history. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always thought that particularly tragic cases could leave energies behind. If that is the case…we do have a lot going on here, but if you’ve read any one of the number of books pertaining to ghosts and hauntings of South Carolina than this should not surprise you.

I have done the research and have brought to you an entire list of streets, bridges, roads, and dirt roads that you may want to avoid due to what could still be lingering there. In some cases, it’s reported that you  have to stop to see the ghost, but I have heard that even driving down these roads can feel quite eerie.
1. Cobb’s Way- Anderson: It’s said that a ghostly figure that wears a white mask appears to haunt this road. The ghost is believed to be a killer that slaughtered people in the 1500’s.

2.  Cherokee Falls Bridge-Blacksburg: This place is where the Legend of Booger Jim comes from. It’s reported that he died on this bridge in 1979 when his crazy wife, Becca, hung him from the bridge with jumper cables at around 9 p.m. They say if you stop and call his name 3 times you will hear him call back, but you won’t be able to make it out due to the fact that his throat was crushed when he was hung.

3. Rock House Road-Blacksburg: Rock House Road runs alongside King’s Mountain Battleground. It’s said that a long time ago there was a family that lived in a rock house (which still stands and can be toured one day a year.) This family had a daughter who was kept in the cellar during the day as she was different from the rest and at night she would be given a candle by her father who would let her out of the house to roam around. The story says that one night she went farther than normal, her candle went out, and she was found dead. They say if you light a candle in the darkness, her face will appear.

Unexplained howls spark Bigfoot hunt in Canada (video)

A big, hairy mystery is unfolding in a remote community off the coast of northern Vancouver Island.

Alert Bay residents have been reporting strange screams and howls coming from a forest that surrounds the town – and some think they could be coming from a sasquatch.

Mackenzie Mountain said he recently recorded the unusual sounds on his cell phone at night on the backside of Cormorant Island.
“We were on the back porch up on the back road and we heard it once, and I didn’t get the recording, and the second time I got the recording,” he said. “That was on the back porch. Very eerie.”

Mountain isn’t the only one who has heard the unsettling howls.

“This summer I’ve heard it three times, I’ve heard it scream three times. But it’s been coming here for years,” said resident Rod Alfred.

Whatever has been making the noise is heard primarily at night, and while some have dismissed it as a dog, others say that’s impossible.

“With that volume, absolutely no dog can make that kind of a noise with that volume,” said Art Dick, who has heard the sounds coming from right outside his home.
