The famous ghost pic – White Lady of Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery. This was taken in 1991 by the Ghost Research Society. The White Lady is sometimes mistaken to be the Madonna of Bachelor’s Grove. The Madonna usually wears different clothing and has a child with her.
We have the following equipment available for the hunt: K2 EMF Meter Ghost Meter InfraRed (IR) Digital Camera 12 MP Digital Camera Digital Thermometer Walkie Talkies (note: these can generate substantial EMF) We’ll also have a dial-a-friend, a medium from Philadelphia. My ghost hunting partner has a psychic connection to her. The hunt starts around 9 PM. The occupancy rate of the hotel is expected to be 20%, so we should be able to move around the hotel without too…
There’s more going on than we thought. Additional ghostly research indicates more sealed-off rooms and EVP is available. The hotel sealed off room 666, although it’s not considered an actual haunted location. Suite 800, in the south tower, is where Al Capone allegedly lived. This hasn’t been proven by anyone yet, but we’ll try to get some readings from it. The 12th floor of the south tower has the sealed and covered-by-wallpaper room. I guess it’s not a good cover-up…
K2 EMF Meter. I just used it to take some baseline readings of common electronics like a LCD TV, iPhone and space heater. It picked them from a few feet away. This is a big improvement over the Ghost Meter (see earlier review post for more.) I’ll test the K2 in depth at the Congress Plaza Hotel hunt in February.

Okay, I made a mistake about Al Capone’s history. I stated he spent more time at the Metropole and Lexington, and he would likely haunt those places over the Congress. Well, the Metropole and Lexington have been demolished. If that’s the case, the Capone spirit may haunt the Congress. It would be his only residence left in the city. Sorry about that. I’ll do better research going forward.
The date is set. We’ll hunt for ghosts at the Congress on Feb. 14th. I’ll post again with the some of our planning. I do know the Auditorium Tunnel will not happen. It’s sealed shut. We’ll stay in the north tower, where the ‘boy’ spirit is known to be. We’ll also have some new equipment to try out, like the K-II (K2) meter. I’ll post its product review after the investigation. I’m also debating about using a medium to help…
