Elva Zona Heaster Discovered Dead (1897)


The Greenbrier Ghost is the name popularly given to the alleged ghost of a young woman in Greenbrier County, West Virginia, United States, who was murdered in 1897. The events surrounding the haunting have led to it becoming a very late instance in American legal history in which the so-called "testimony of a ghost" was accepted at a murder trial.
