Miami Ghost Chronicles
Miami Ghost Chronicles is documenting one the most haunted places in the US... Bobby Mackey's Music World which we visited August 2014.
This is the first installment, which details the death of Pearl Bryan who supposedly haunts the honky tonk, but like most things that deal with the supernatural, not everything is what it seems.
On Feb. 2nd, 1896 The Courier-Journal wrote a short piece about the mysterious remains of a woman who was found beheaded in a lonely area, about one mile south of Fort Thomas, Kentucky. The crime was compared to the work of Jack the Ripper. Only 5 years before H. H. Holmes had stalked the World’s Fair for his victims, and the year after that Lizzie Borden’s parents had been hacked to death in their home.
Initially it was suspected she was an “abandoned woman” from Cincinnati, and law enforcement was unable to find her head, despite bringing in blood hounds to find it. A soldier in Ft. Thomas reported seeing a man and a woman walking out late at night along Alexandria Pike close to where the body was found, and a sergeant claimed he had heard a woman scream around midnight.

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.
