George Michael, beloved musical icon and philanthropist, may have received a carless whisper from the edge of heaven from an unlikely source near his home in Highgate, Greater London, UK over the weekend. Micky Gocool and Louise Roche of the North London Paranormal Investigators just happened to be passing through on Saturday afternoon while the singer was talking with fans outside. The duo, “sporting black combat boots and [police-style belts] with ghost-nabbing gadgets” then reportedly asked Mr. Michael if he would be interested in assisting them on a case in the highly active Pond Square area.
But wait- that’s not all!
Gocool and Roche also warned Michael that his historic, multi-million dollar mansion could very well be haunted. The mansion happens to be located near the famous Highgate Cemetery, where the Highgate Vampire was first spotted. Another alleged ghost is a 17th century woman who murdered 50 children. A third viable candidate is the fearsome frozen chicken. Yes. Chicken. Gocool cautioned that “the ghost of a chicken which was frozen in 1626 haunts the area just by George’s house.” Good call Gocool, after just barely recovering from a nasty case of pneumonia in late 2011, the last thing Mr. Michael needs is severe food poisoning from 100 year old frost bitten chicken.
It is unclear if Michael had faith enough to listen without prejudice, but he did take the time to pose for a picture with the investigators which ran in the local newspaper. What a mensch.
Is this spooky face haunting car parks around the borough?
This is, without a doubt, 100% paranormal. Yup.
The picture caught on camera by Colin Pantling, seems to show a face peering from the Times Square multi-storey car park.
The spectral image appears to have captured the attention of the man on the motorbike.
Mr Pantling said: “I was out with my camera looking for roosting birds in the trees and to my surprise I found this ghostly image staring across the road, does anyone know who it might be?”
It is not the first time a multi-storey car park in Sutton has witnessed a strange occurrence over the past couple of years.
There was the mystery of the moving car in the Brighton Road car park in August, 2010, after a women returned from a shopping trip, only to find her car parked in a different spot to where she had left it.
Convinced her car had moved “of its own accord”, the woman rang the council to ask if the car park was haunted, believing she had been the victim of a poltergeist.
CCTV footage showed the car apparently rolling forward unaided.
Councillor Simon Wales, Communities and Transport spokesman at Sutton Council, said: “This isn’t the first time we’ve heard reports of spooky goings on in this area.
“I’m afraid that fans of the supernatural will be disappointed though – our staff checked CCTV footage of the area, which showed her car gently rolling into a different bay, after she forgot to apply her handbrake.”
I love me some Adele. I mean, who doesn’t? She’s so hot right now. AND she believes her crazy huge house is haunted. Naturally, when you are rich and famous you invite other people who are rich and (slightly less) famous than you to come find out what’s going on.
Dear Ghosts: I'm watching you. Sincerely, Adele
Adele has invited Robbie Williams to stay at her haunted mansion.
The 23-year-old ‘Someone Like You’ singer reportedly believes her 10-bedroom home is Sussex, England, is being staked out by ghosts, and has invited super-natural enthusiast Robbie and his wife Ayda Field to come and experience the spooky goings-on.
A source said: “Adele’s often said she hates staying at home alone in the mansion because she’s sure it’s haunted and she gets spooked.
“She knows Robbie and Ayda are fascinated by the supernatural and has offered to have them to stay for a haunted weekend any time they like.
“Adele thinks they are both fantastic and would love to spend some time sharing ghost stories and witnessing paranormal activity.”
The Grammy Award-winning star left London and moved to the £7 ($11.1) million house a few months ago after undergoing surgery on her vocal chords. It is thought doctors advised her the clean, country air could aid her recovery.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Adele is a London girl through and through, but she’s never been particularly into the showbiz circuit so when it was suggested she move out of the city, she agreed immediately.
“The idea is for her to live in the countryside, away from the capital’s smog and pollution.”
It seems as though ghosts enjoy fresh air and the countryside as well as singers.
GHOSTLY goings-on have been captured at Huddersfield railway station.
A mysterious glowing white orb has been recorded floating through the station shop on four separate occasions – and it’s now been caught on camera.
The spooky phenomenon has only come to light after a hi-tech CCTV system was installed in the shop.
Shopkeeper Darryl Townend explained: “We’ve just had a new security system installed which detects movement.
“Last week it detected something on three or four occasions – it looks like a white light.
“It’s globe-shaped, like an orb. It’s certainly strange.
“Last Friday was a really good one, it was really vivid.
“It came in front of the camera. It’s like a round white light and it shot across the room and then appeared to go through the wall.
“It’s really eerie.”
He added: “The station’s recently been refurbished and the part of the shop that it’s being spotted in used to be the waiting room area.
“It doesn’t happen in the main shop.
“All the staff have seen it and it’s really strange.”
Mr Townend, who has been running the shop at the station for 10 years, said he first noticed the strange light on Monday last week.
He said they had thought there was something wrong with their motion-activated system but the glowing orb had returned several times.
He added: “We’ve altered the sensitivity settings on the cameras but it’s still being triggered.”
Yet despite the unsettling discovery he said they would not be calling in the Ghostbusters or searching the Yellow Pages for an exorcist.
“It only happens on an evening at the moment,” he said.
“As long as it stays that way it’s not a problem”.
I’m going to reserve my own comment and instead share the comments left by readers on the article itself, which are delightfully funny with a fun twist of Britishness thrown in:
“Its an insect. We get them on our CCTV all the time… Ive never felt the need to inform the examiner though” - T3
“It is a moth ball. Not paranormal, more parafocus of cheap camera.” - Mameluke
“Good advertising idea !” – Aliban
“WOW! How scarey is that. I had to close my eyes I was so frightened. The Examiner should be ashamed of putting such horrific things in the paper. What an absolute load of tripe. Get real and put newsworthy stuff in the paper, not this twaddle”- hardupandfedup
There’s even an attached affidavit signed on April 11 by local attorney Greg Klebanoff of Klebanoff Law Firm which outlines the legal details in an attempt to demonstrate the legitimacy of the offer.
Robert Lipford, managing director at the firm, verified the group’s involvement in their client’s offer Tuesday afternoon by telephone.
The bounty appears to be offered by the same person who left a comment on a local news story regarding a guide who was recently cited for leading a Bigfoot search in the Buffalo National River area without an expedition permit.
