Miami Ghost Chronicles
Presently stories abound about haunted houses, castles, cars, collector items etc, but for me, the real question lies in how did this come about, and if there is really a way to truly release the agony, torment and terror of incidents that produced this haunting, whether intelligent or residual.
Some desperate measures taken, especially when the haunting takes place in a structure, is to burn it down, however I don't think that really does the trick, because I believe that the spirits of those who experienced moments so extreme that they are trapped there even after the death of their physical bodies, do not recognize the purifying effect hoped for by those of us still in the material plane.
Read Kristal Hawkin's narrative describing just such an event titled Keddie Resort, Calif: The Unsolved Nightmare in Cabin 28, and tell me what you think, and if this story describes what many times has happened, unrecognized and unknown for years in other places around the world. Long after witnesses and family have passed away, and stories in newspapers or books are buried and forgotten, those that stumble upon these places will wonder how it became cursed.

Over the years I have had several ghost stories sent anonymously to me, and it's these quaint and subtle stories of hauntings that I find so fascinating, because you realize that ghosts make their prescence known in the most mundane of settings, and sometimes it's only in hindsight that we realize exactly what we were experiencing. I have excluded surnames and exact addresses in order to protect the privacy of families.
