EP13 The Ghost of a Killer; or, The Wraith of a Murderer Stalks Abroad: a real-life Ghosts of Wales story in which a spirit is said to have returned to haunt his former neighbours in Victorian Swansea
Aug 27th, 2020
Can a murderer return from beyond the grave to haunt their former neighbours?
In this episode of the GHOSTS & FOLKLORE podcast, join your host MARK REES (author of Ghosts of Wales/ Paranormal Wales etc.) as he goes in search of the facts surrounding the "Wraith of a Murderer", a ghost which was said to be haunting his old home in the late Victorian age.
In a tale which combines a real-life long-lost crime with an eerie "most haunted" supernatural story, the events unfolded in 19th century Swansea where witnesses reported seeing the phantom's face, feeling his clammy hands, and in at least one case falling sick with fear as a result.
Was this paranormal activity the work of "The Wraith of a Murderer Stalks Abroad", or was something even more mysterious taking place in the Welsh city?
