The Ghost of Emily Keseg


Dan’s first story is based in some true crime – the 1969 unsolved murder of 18-year-old college student Emily Keseg in Cicero, Illinois. Has her ghost haunted the campus of Morton College ever since? Then,  to the Santa Fe National Forest. What could explain a collection of sightings and strange disappearances around the three locations of the Holy Ghost Campground, El Camino del Diablo, and the Pecos Wilderness?  Is there a portal to some other dimension or world in this area? Lynze shares a very intense story about the legend of the Kunduz and then follows up with a lighter, but still spoopy tale from a haunted train ride!

Opening Sumerian protection spell (adapted):
Whether thou art a ghost that hath come from the earth, or a phantom of night that hath no home… or one that lieth dead in the desert… or a ghost unburied… or a demon or a ghoul… Whatever thou be until thou art removed… thou shalt find here no water to drink… Thou shalt not stretch forth thy hand to our own… Into our house enter thou not. Through our fence, breakthrough thou not… we are protected though we may be frightened.  Our life you may not steal, though we may feel SCARED TO DEATH.”
