Spooky Stories and a Haunted Indiana

Over the past few weeks, Intake reporter Eric Kinsey has been filling us in on some of Indianapolis' most notorious murders with October anniversaries. With pictures of the still-standing houses and buildings in neighborhoods like Irvington and downtown, he's been reminding everyone of how scary life can be. For some reason, this week's story of the unsolved, 1911 murder of Dr. Helene Knabe really has my skin crawling. Maybe it's because I often drive by the Barton House downtown -- then the Delaware Flats and the scene of the murder. Maybe it's because of the crime scene sketches showing how her head was wedged into her bed and her throat cut. Or it could be because an investigator from unseenpress.com recorded electronic ghostly voices last year in the space! Either way, it's creeping me out. The Historic Haunted Indiana Ghost Walks and Tours is covering these locations this fall and it looks like their is next driving tour is scheduled for Nov 18 -- but tomorrow night (Oct 23), they'll lead a walking tour in the Lockerbie/Chatham Arch areas including a stop at the scene of Dr. Knabe's death. I may just have to go have my creepy curiosity satisfied.

Alas, I missed it. But having seen the big piece in Intake this week, now I want to stay overnight on a ghost trip at the Hannah House!

I did it earlier this year and I was a little disappointed. Too many people were walking around to get good pictures and too many people were trying to be boss.

Have you been to Gravity Hill, or the house with blue lights?

The house of Blue Lights was debunked aeons ago. The owner long since dead was rich, eccentric (instead of crazy) and he got a kick out of people thinking he had his wife in there.
