Whenever rumors spread about an alleged ghost sighting, it is bound to get a lot of publicity, with believers on one side and skeptics on the other launching into a heated debate. The reactions to ghost sightings sometimes go as far as actual legal battles as ghosts sometimes have a prominent effect on people’s lives. The following stories may sound completely bonkers, but are actually completely true, and so are the consequences that succeeded them. Here’s our list of the 5 most bizarre ghost sightings and their consequences.

5. Ghost Murder Victim Helps Convict Her Husband
On January 23, 1897, Zona Heaster Shue died under mysterious circumstances at her house in West Virginia. After her funeral, Zona’s mother started being haunted by Zona’s ghost that apparently kept telling her that Zona was strangled by her husband. The authorities agreed to Mary Jane’s request to exhume her daughter and the autopsy showed that Zona was indeed killed by strangling and after a trial, he was sentenced to a life-long prison sentence.

4. Ghost Pilot Returns To Clear His Name
In 1913, a pilot by the name of Desmond Arthur died while flying his plane across Scotland. At first, Arthur himself was blamed for the crash. However not long after, personnel stationed at Montrose started seeing his ghost appear as he would haunt down his former airfield in response to the government investigation that smeared his name. As soon as Arthur’s name was cleared from having been responsible for the crash, the sightings stopped.

3. The Cock Lane Ghost Haunting
The “Cock Lane Ghost” is one of the most famous cases of several ghost sightings connected to a specific area. It all started when a journalist wrote an article saying a woman who died in one of the houses of the Cock Lane by the name of Fanny is now haunting the neighborhood because she was murdered by her husband. It all became a huge sensation when a seance was staged and Fanny’s ghost responded with a series of questions by knocking which “confirmed” her husband killed her.

2. Ghost Saves People From Hurricanes
Pawleys Island is a small coastal town in South Carolina that has become known as the home of a spirit known as “The Gray Man.” It’s rumored that the Gray Man always makes an appearance before a major hurricane hits the area and if you are the one who sees him you will be able to live through the hurricane. All the witnesses who saw the ghost have fled the area before the hurricane and when they came back their homes were the only ones left intact.

1. Man Sued For Slandering A Ghost
There is hardly any more bizarre case than the one of Booty v. Barnaby. The story from the unofficial records goes like this – a man was being chased across an island in Italy by a figure dressed in black. Barnaby recognized the man as Mr. Booty, his neighbor. The two men ran toward a volcano and mysteriously disappeared into some flames. After some time, Barnaby was informed that Mr. Booty couldn’t have been the one running around the island because he died earlier that same day, so naturally Barnaby concluded that it was Mr. Booty’s ghost who was chased into the flames of the volcano. Barnaby later got sued by Mr. Booty’s wife for spreading rumors about Mr. Booty. Mrs. Booty, filled a lawsuit against him for slander and actually won.
