The Man Who Upset a Ghost Haunted

    • Samhälle och kultur

Private Lee Davis was hanged in a British prison in 1943. The execution chamber where the young American GI spent his final tragic moments is now a tourist destination, popular with "ghost hunters". When a tour guide recently recounted the story of the hanging there, the man felt a sudden, fierce pain. His hand had been badly, but inexplicably wounded. Was Private Davis sending a violent message, perhaps protesting at becoming the focus of such macabre entertainment?
