you always here of reports of a ghost strangling someone, but has anyone ever heard of a ghost physically killing a person?

I've never heard of a ghost actually killing someone before. But I'd bet the house that if a ghost hasn't ever directly killed someone it has certainly caused someone to commit suicide. I'm sure somewhere in the history of mankind a murder victim has returned from beyond to torment their killer until the person could no longer stand it. This may have even happened to innocent people who just happen to live in a haunted house and could not escape the horror of a ghost, or ghosts. I've even heard of ghosts sexually assaulting people before (please don't ask me to provide a link because I wouldn't even know where to find something like that- it's just something I remember hearing about or watching on a television program before).

Of course that's all conjecture on my part, and I am by no means a ghost or supernatural expert. I've never even had an encounter with a ghost (so far as I know or recall).

It'd be really interesting to see if anyone knows of any cases where a ghost actually caused someone's death.

Despite 6 billion people on the planet and who knows how many 'ghosts', there has not been one reported case of a Ghost killing anyone.

I personally think we have one up on ghosts in that we have the same spirit they have, but we also have a body.....which occasionally they dont like, but cannot do anything about.

Essentially a few bully us now and again with their 'new gained knowledge' but at the end of the day they have nothing over us in the grand scale of thing.

I never heard or read anything about a ghost killing someone.Wonder if anyone had a heartattack from a sighting?BTW Rasputin,I saw a movie inspired by an actual event of a woman raped repeatedly by a ghost called "The Entity."

Well as it goes i did read a story about a unused house in park lane london where some unexplained deaths occured.
Sorry for bad grammer spelling


The story goes there were two sailors of ship on leave,being sailors they got hammered and blown all there money,so being drunk they thought it'd be a good idea to break into an unused house in a posh part of london.
So anyway they manage to get in make themselves comfortable and put there head down for the night.Some point through the night one of them wakes up for no apparent reason,but something has spooked him, he looks round the room and a black form appears in the corner with no real shape, he screams wakes his mate up and does a runner,unfortunatley his mate isn't so quick and doesn't make it out of the room.
So this drunk sailor finds a cop tells him he and a friend broke into a house and something had trapped his friend and finally convinces him to go to this house,so they go in creeping around the house find the room...and find his ex-friend,with a look on his face of total terror dead on the floor.

Now this event went round as a rumour,some posh gent made a bet with friends that he'd stay in the house for one night,so anyway he and his friends go to the house that day and set up the place,hes taken a blunderbuss incase it was actually some crazed attacker that killed the sailor.He'd also taken a large bell to ring if anything goes wrong so that his friends can come to his aid.
So the hours went by and in the early morning a shot was heard by his friends and as they started to run to there scrared friend the bell that was rining suddenly went quiet.
When they found there friend the same look of terror was on the face of the corpse and the bell had been shook so violently that the brass bit had fallen off and the handle was still clutched in his hand.
Now all this was in the late 19th century and if i remember no other events took place there.
More than likely BS but it did stick in my mind.

thanks...
Everytme you watch a "true" ghost story on tv. The ghost beats the crap out of people some how draws blood but never does anyone ever dies of physical abuse from a ghost. If an evil ghost wants to choke you why doesn't the spawn from hell ever choke you to death. So I figured i would post and someone on ATS would know something about it.

i too have heard about ghost sexually abusing people. Some was evil and some of it playfull.

I've never heard of them killing an individual, could there possibly be a set of rules that they have to follow as far as what they can or can't do to us? The only thing scarier than the afterlife, would be if there was also some sort of government in the afterlife lol.

According to folklore the bell witch killed John Bell. Here's a link to the
story.

No...That is something you see in Hollywood films. Think about it. How is a spirtual entity,other than through possession, going to hurt you? It's not. They may cause you to hurt yourself through naive fear,but they won't and can't hurt you.

Universal laws. Universal law is also the reason why some civilizations from other planets haven't already obliterated us.

I'm not sure whether or not I think a person can directly be killed by a ghost. I definitely believe a person can be indirectly killed by a ghost, for example having a fatal heart attack at the sight of ghost (as mentioned by crowpruitt), or being killed by an object 'hurled' by a poltergeist (such as being stabbed by a knife hurled through the air by a poltergeist).

But I have read several 'stories' around the internet of people being killed by ghosts. The first one that comes to mind is a short mention at Haunted-Places.com/International about a place in Singapore:


The Hou Gang Tenements are haunted by the apparition of a screaming lady, and a person was reportedly killed by a ghost in Bedok Tenant House.

Most ghost sightings happen alone, so if ghost killing did happen, noone would be their to tell the tale, as the person is dead, and it will be marked by the police as just a unexplained death like many others.

Thought ghosts problly prefer tormenting their victims than killing them, maybe by tormenting they gain fear energy out of them or somthing...

The link leads to a true story about these unexplained lights that can be seen to be coming from the belfry in St. Joseph's church in Jersey City.

A little bit into the article it mentions that the lights re-appeared in 1954 after the death of a priest there. The priest's body was found in the choir loft and his last known words were, "I'm going to the belfry."
According to the article, the lights still appear every now and then, though, at best sporadically.

It's just conjecture, but I think this is a possible ghost related killing. Opinions?

I once exorcised a spirit who was strangling a new born baby and leaving her blue and screaming. This spirit did not understand that as etheric matter she was not bound to her ex property and could freely transverse the cosmos. She when she was alive could not stand screaming children and her aaction made it worse.A friend of mine was visited by a spirit who told hom to be aware of an accident that could leave him badly hurt,the problem was that the spirit was wrong at that time and my friend caused his own accident by believing he had plenty of time until the event.

I have never seen any credible stories of harm coming from a ghost.

The word ghost should not be confused with a poltergeist or demonic entity.

You need to read the book 'the ghost that haunted itself' by Jan-Andrew Henderson. It is the story of the Mackenzie Poltergeist in Greyfriar's Cemetery in Edinburgh. Although no one has died, many people have been severely injured by the evil spook. And in fact .. it has been widely repoted that many times people are attacked just by reading the book. I wasn't ... but there have been reports of attack (scratches on the body, bites, etc.) when people read the book.

ALSo - there have been reports of deaths involved when people have gone against the "ghosts" (or island spirits) in hawaii and tried to transport PORK over the mountains of Oahu. That's an interesting story. Google up the ghosts of Oahu hawaii and that they don't like pork being taken from one side of the island to the other.

And I agree with JBurns .... ghost shouldn't be confused with poltergeist or demons.

I can assure you that after 35 years in the GHOST business I was not confronted with either of these, just a lost lonely lady who thought she could quieten the child.

Hey sounds like an interesting book just bought it online so i'll find out in a couple of days!

Thanks for the heads up

Yeah it probably happend and the bell witch is quite a well documented (although maybe that’s more demonic?). Certainly what Voidmaster ghost link was quite interesting. That said maybe someone made it look as though it was supernatural?

I think the main deterrent against killing someone when your dead is that whoever you’ve killed probably won’t be too happy with you. That said you would have thought that the same would also apply to tormenting the living as everybody dies eventually. Maybe the ghosts that cause really nasty harm to innocent people are just insane? And in life they’re aren’t that many insane people who actually kill people. Yeah it’s a fair share of murders but you would have thought it would be even less in the afterlife when it can’t be so easy to accidentally kill someone in a moment of rage.

Well,it depends on what you believe. I personally think we have an entirely different perspective when we are in the spirit than when we are alive. Emotions,at least in my opinion,make up the soulic body which dies with the physical body. So, when we are in spirit,I don't think we feel rage and sadness and such. Therefore, I don't think this comment, "That said you would have thought that the same would also apply to tormenting the living as everybody dies eventually," really applies. However, this is just my opinion.
