Perhaps not as well known as Ackley's Ghost
, whose legal, if not factual, existence is known to every American law student, the Greenbrier Ghost
is still known as the only ghost whose testimony helped convict a murderer.
Although commonly used to convict witches, spectral evidence
largely fell out of favor after the Salem Witch Trials, until one West Virginia women's ghost accused her husband of murdering her.
