008 St. Valentine’s Day Massacre

SMG Cartage Company, location of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre https://www.prairieghosts.com/valentine.html

In Ghostly’s eighth episode, Pat and Rebecca take another deep dive into the haunted history of Chicago and explore the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre and the ghost stories surrounding it. They are joined once again by Armando “Mondo” Kent who went with Pat and Rebecca to see the location of the massacre and has some stories of his own to tell.

Questions explored in this episode: What happened at the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre? Was Al Capone haunted by the ghost of one of the victims? What happened to the brick wall where the men were murdered? Are the bricks haunted? Is the area still haunted by restless spirits? What are the first two contests Ghostly has going on between now and March 24th?

Mondo’s Live Photo as Video

In the episode, Mondo tells listeners about the amazing live photo he took while visiting the site in November 2018. In this photo, a mysterious ball of energy/light moves around, in and out of the tree planted where the wall once stood. Is this a spirit or just a trick of light?

As always, Pat and Rebecca debate what is fact and what is fiction in this story. Listen to both sides and decide what you believe. To help you explore even more, Mondo gives us his #teamrightdownthemiddle positions on all the different ghost stories. Be sure to listen for the “Closing Arguments” to help you make your choice.

Also included in this episode are, as always, poll results from our previous episode on The Ladies of Bachelor’s Grove and on the Spirit Box recording. (check the episode out here if you haven’t had a chance to listen yet).

Now it’s time to vote on this episode! Vote on whether or not the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre ghost stories are real and also whether or not Mondo’s photo is supernatural. Click here to vote if you don’t see the poll: https://ghostlypodcast.com/polls/
