Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: the birthplace of America. Home to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall - where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were signed. So much history and some say a lot of ghosts. The Unexplained Cases team traveled to the City of Brotherly Love, to investigate several paranormal hotspots known to be haunted by the spirits from the Revolutionary War…of famous business owners and politicians…some really crazy dressed apparitions…and possibly a pirate, too! In our third of three investigations, not a lot of places have a word in their name twice but the Morton Morton House in Norwood, Pennsylvania - just outside of Philly - isn’t like most places. This building was constructed way back in 1750 by Morton Morton. Yes, that is his name. He was the great grandson of Marten Martenson. Morton Morton was the first cousin to John Morton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Over the years the building has gone through many renovations. The Morton Morton house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We certainly have established it is old and historic, but what about haunted? Donna claims it is, so we wanted to experience it for ourselves. Gear in hand we began the investigation. Upstairs we captured a couple of hits on our equipment. Unfortunately, nothing too substantial. Donna from Philly Ghost Hunt, used her rods to try and get some answers about the ghosts that haunt the house. But, it was downstairs where things got a little crazy. Donna says legend has it that something is down in this dark .and dusty basement - a murderer from a past life. Some even believe it could be an evil pirate. If it were true, that makes for a great story. It didn’t take long into our investigation before things got weird. We quickly learn that a pirate tried to put the moves on a young woman, she rejected him and in a rage he killed her. For his crime, he is forced to exist in the location he killed her and not to interact with any other spirits. Sounds like hell to me. He also tried to interact with us. First, I was touched on the hand. Rick then thought he encountered spider webs that weren’t there. Lastly, Donna began uncontrollably coughing which she attributed to him. Besides a pirate, do revolutionary war soldiers or former homeowners haunt this legendary location outside Philadelphia? We’d need more time to determine who but without a doubt there is energy within the building’s walls that seems to be from another dimension.

Unexplained Cases | Historic & Haunted: Hotel San Carlos

Written by:  Darren Dedo Case Filed: 10/31/21 Executive Producer:  Rick Garner   The Hotel San Carlos in downtown Phoenix is historic and many say this grand old place is haunted. It opened in 1928 -- before it was the location of Phoenix’s first school. Even before that, ruins of an ancient Hohokam Village. A little cool factoid: The hotel can be briefly seen in Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 film Psycho opening shot, as the camera pans the then-skyline of downtown Phoenix. Over the years the San Carlos has hosted political leaders and movie stars like Marilyn Monroe and Spencer Tracy. But, the most famous guest or I should say ghost -- was 22-year-old Leone Jensen. The story goes that Jensen checked into room 720, and later jumped to her death from the top of the San Carlos. She was supposedly distraught about her abusive boyfriend, who was a bellboy at a nearby hotel. Some say she was pregnant and was pushed to her death. The one thing most people agree on when it comes to Leone,
