Ghosts are said to be cold.
They can freeze a person right where they are, so it’s said.
But for Mr. and Mrs. Shea of St. Joseph, Missouri, the icy touch of a ghost literally caused their arms to become paralyzed.
Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1918. You can also hear me read the articles on The Big Séance and the History Goes Bump podcasts — or listen to previously released recordings here.
