Agatha Christie’s ghost haunts Devon museum

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

"Staff and volunteers who work at Torquay Museum are convinced that the playful ghost of crime writer Agatha Christie may be behind frequent poltergeist activity in the gift shop.

"The oldest museum in Devon has long been rumoured to be haunted and previously released CCTV footage showing leaflets mysteriously flying off shelves.

"Now staff insist they have witnessed frequent poltergeist activity. They have seen Agatha Christie being launched across the room and wonder if the Queen of Crime is haunting the gift shop which contains many of her books.."

Haven't booted up the eponymous Papameter in a bit:

Paranormal (not necessarily Agatha)  55%      All Normal 45%

Factor: the people interviewed looked sincere and intelligent to judge what is normal

Of course they would baselessly claim it's someone famous, gotta attract that business any way they can.

Maybe if they stood their books better, they will not fall off.

Look at the ones on the right of her head, any of those books could fall any minute.

That actually makes me wonder if they are setting a few books intentionally precariously to feed these stories...

Say you know there's a loose floorboard under one shelf. Put a book or two up there barely balanced, and when someone walks by, there's a greater chance of it just 'falling' on it's own. Also, look at those leaflets next to her head. The simple air displacement of someone moving by or turning quickly would probably cause at least one them to fall.

So they are saying she is haunting the place as she is attached to the books?  Easy enough to verify if the haunting is real or fake, take the books to a controlled area  (away from the museum) ensure the room with video surveillance and see what happens.
