Hello, I am Robert G. Male.
Welcome to WraithStop. Here you will find links that I think are of interest.
Furthermore these are links that I want to keep track of because they have given me either ideas or some other form of
inspiration for my writing. Links are listed in order lowest to highest both in the date they are given and the order
in which they appear (meaning: read them from the bottom up for a certain day's list). Some of these sites may require
you to sign up for free. Without further ado, the links...

3) America's Most Haunted: Myrtles Plantation
Tags: conflicting stories, ghosts, haunted, history, hotel, legend, murder, The St. Francisville Experiment (2000) (movie).
- The Myrtles Plantation is supposed to be one of "America's most haunted houses". It is
located in St. Francisville, Louisiana. The plantation is the inspiration for the
"St. Francisville Experiment"
movie. This article endeavours to separate the truth of the plantations history from the dearth of legends.
2) Paranormal cold spots
Cold spots are a commonly reported experience in accounts of hauntings and reports of ghosts. The reasons why
they exist is a matter of importance in the field of parapsychology. They are not wholeheartedly dismissed but do have to stand up
to scientific scrutiny. True paranormal cold spots need to be differentiated from those caused by purely normal sources such as
drafts and misidentification of witnesses due to the reason discussed in this link.

1) Junction City Prison
Tags: creatures, cryptozoology, ghosts, haunted, history, prison.
- Prisons are always a good source of ghost stories. Junction City Prison appears to have
sightings of a Sasquatch attached to it as well. A number of personal encounters are presented on this page from a number of people.
The accounts run the gamut from strange sounds, to ghostly figures, to the creature. Some of them also tie in together. Smartly
some of them also maintain a good level of scepticism. This is a nice case study for constructing a good background or history for

3) 'Creepy gnome' back on prowl
Tags: creepy, cryptozoology, culture, inexplicable, legend, mystery.
- This the first time that this particular story has appeared here despite that it is the next
'chapter' in what is apparently an ongoing saga between modern South Americans and what is describe as a gnome (or more than one),
a diminutive human-like figure of legend. The first video to appear, some time months ago, wasn't all that interesting beyond a
good laugh. This new video is different. The figure is quite small, where the previously one could have been written off as
just a Little Person or a child playing a prank.
2) Cautionary tale: How a misconfigured laptop ruined a worker's life
Tags: conspiracy, espionage, nightmares, thriller.
- Sometimes the littlest seeming, trivial thing has a way of snowballing into a nightmare.
Real, true, terrible things lurk literally almost around the corner. Here's one of them. This was an accident. Imagine how bad it
could get if it were not so, but instead planned. Trade this true story's false crime indictment for something more espionage-like
or another crime that is only a crime under specific conditions and there would be the seeds for a nice thriller style horror.
1) Airman tells of night he was ordered to shoot down UFO
Tags: aliens, Big Brother, case, conspiracy, horror, idea, MIB, UFO.
- The ever continuing UFO conspiracy gets a new look at as Britain opens up it UFO files. The
depth and breadth of the conspiracy required is always fascinating to think about. Are UFO's and the machinations circling them
particularly horrific? Certain aspects can be. Certain ideas come to mind revolving around--in a case like this one, but not this
actual one--the Men in Black. Of course there is also always the question of just what are these aliens up to.

3) Night-Shining Clouds May Have Metal Lining
creepy, dark, glow, legend, night, paranormal, ramifications.
- This seems a little cold, dull, and scientific but just think about it for a moment. Clouds
with something in them making them glow at night. What could it be causing it (aside from the plausible things put forward in this
article)? What does it mean when the clouds have their own light in the dark? What do the legends say about such nights when this
happens? The possiblities are many. Even more intruiging perhaps, what it if wasn't clouds but fog instead?
2) Remote viewer Ed Dames named Sierra Mountains crash site months ago
Tags: government, knowledge, psychic ability, remote viewing, Stargate Project.
- Remote viewing, the ability to see things in a place not visible with the eyes (distance, or
hidden/enclosed) has never seemed to be a classic kind of psychic ability, but since investigation into it began it has been a popular
idea. This article is part primer, but maybe more of a launching point to look into it, not to mention the Stargate Project (not the
TV show) connection.
1) Palin Bags A Bigfoot
Tags: Bat-Boy, conspiracy, cryptozoology, endangered species, hunting, killing, legend, monster, sasquatch.
- With Bat-Boy's seal on the picture it must be true. Should the Sasquatch be on the Endangered
Species list? Who would want to be the one to find out that there are Bigfoot out there and that someone should have been looking
out for them? There is talk in other circles about a US conspiracy to keep Bigfoot a mystery to protect the public from believeing in
evolution in the form of a near-man running around in the wilds.

3) Millionaire spooked from mansion
Tags: blood, creepy, experts, ghosts, haunted, paranormal.
- This is a modern day taste of the Amityville Horror over the pond in England. Of particular
note is that the place is in Nottinghamshire county, of Robin Hood fame. There is a creepy story to be told there.
2) Hanging Suicide Mistaken for Decoration
Tags: corpses, Hallowe'en, hanging, holiday, props, suicide.
- You have to love Snopes.com, making it real... or at least pointing out the false. Here we have a
Hallowe'en themed entry. A suicide by hanging is mistaken for a spooky All Hallows Eve prop. It says something about the lengths to which
people will go for the holiday, but also it says more about the people who will expect anything is acceptable to their twisted, demented,
1) Fort Wayne Masonic Temple - Shadow Man
Tags: ghosts, haunted, science, shadow people, verification.
- Here is a look at a first hand investigation into a haunted location and the results. This seems
more like a classic haunting and the shadow basically a spectre, rather than an encounter with one of the Shadow People. The way that
there is only one witness even though others were present is quite indicative of the difficulty in proving the existence of a ghost at a
location. It goes to show the need for luck in not only capturing the first real evidence, but also in being able to re-verify it--a
necessary tenet of the scientific process.
