Is the Legend of Spring Heeled Jack Worth a Second Look?

Spring-heeled Jack is an entity that first appeared during the Victorian era. Is the legend of Spring=heeled Jack worth a second look?
Beginning in the Spring of 1888, a series of grizzly murders would shake the city of London so badly that, even today, they remain among the most famous crimes ever committed. Attempts at bringing the killer to justice have led to numerous theories about the identity of the man who became known to history as Jack the Ripper. Today, despite a number credible leads that have been presented since Jack’s reign of terror, along with new evidence that employs modern science to try and crack the case, a conclusive case for The Ripper’s identity has remained elusive.

The infamous killer of Whitechapel was by no means the first eerie figure to terrorize Londoners by night. Five decades before Jack the Ripper first scrawled his name in red ink on a letter sent to London’s Central News Agency, a less murderous–though far more strange–series of incidents would arouse similar terror among the people of London, and under a similar name that remains one of the most odd and evocative in the annals of Forteana.

Ghosts and Aliens: Is There a Connection?

Bestselling author and paranormal investigator Joni Mayhan explores the connection between ghosts and aliens.
When I began researching this topic, I must admit that I was firmly in the skeptic’s corner. I am open minded to many things paranormal, but this took my belief system to a level I couldn’t immediately facilitate.

In my experience, there are Ghost Camps and there are Alien Camps. People who belong to one seldom venture into the other. We might appreciate the findings and the stories that are passed around in the other camp, but we do little more than nod and smile. Read more
