Who speaks for the dead?  Who helps solve murders long since forgotten, or avenges a death that has gone undiscovered?  Sometimes when life is so suddenly taken, it prevents a spirit from moving on – until they can find ghostly justice.

Our latest episode features a story known by many as the Greenbrier Ghost. This is the tale of a ghost that famously solved its own murder and brought its killer to justice. What makes this tale so fascinating is that it is said to be one of the first recorded cases in the U.S. where a court verdict was reached based on the testimonies involving an aspect of the paranormal.
