Can a ghost present evidence in court? Can a spirit testify through a witness who is in a trance? Can a house be said to be legally haunted? The answer to all three of these questions is, yes. And the proof will be presented in the following pages. Examined in this unique book are over 40 cases which involve evidence that is supplied by ghosts and accepted by courts of law. Suspects have been convicted of murder and suffered execution on evidence offered by ghosts. Disputed wills have been settled due to paranormal intervention. Houses have been declared legally haunted by sitting courts based on the effects had on the property by the ghost itself. This work - written by a legal researcher and parapsychologist - offers a rare look at the influence the supernatural has had on legal decisions through the ages. All of the cases studied are documented, verifiable and of relatively modern origin. These are not cases from Medieval witch hunting courts. They are not about psychic detectives. They are about ghosts in the modern world(mostly 20th century)and their efforts to find justice from beyond the grave. If ghosts are merely imaginary, it would not be possible for evidence supplied by them to be accepted as proof in courts across the world, including the United States. An imaginary being cannot give evidence! This is a book about ghosts and hauntings written for all readers, even though seen from a legal perspective. It seemed the best way to offer proof about the existence of ghosts – through legal verdicts made by sitting courts. You be the judge.
