I have to admit to a positive fixation about lighthouses. They seem to be funnels for energy. Tonight’s “Ghost Adventures” is one you won’t be able to pry me away from. The story is just too bizarre to resist (and look at that picture—looks like a super cool island lighthouse!) Here’s the description:
Execution Rocks is given its name because British soldiers used the rocks around the island to carry out executions. They would chain the prisoners up at low tide and wait for the water to slowly rise until the prisoners were drowned. The prisoners were in the water for up to twelve hours before the water rose high enough for them to drown.
It is standard for a lighthouse keeper to commit to living in a lighthouse for a year. However, lighthouse keepers at Execution Rocks were allowed to cancel their contracts and leave at any point. Many keepers were frightened by strange phenomena and chose to leave early.
One of America's most notorious serial killers, Carl Panzram, was a big fan of the lighthouse. Carl Panzram once stated, "I have murdered 21 human beings. I have committed sodomy on at least 1000 male human beings. For all of these things, I am not in the least bit sorry." The lighthouse was his chosen place to dump the dead bodies of his victims.
With all of the dark history surrounding the island, is it a wonder that few paranormal investigators have paid a visit to the lighthouse? Apparently, the team is going to use all kinds of equipment for this one.
Tonight’s drink? I’m going to have my favorite—spumante. I know, I’m a cheap date! I just love that bubbly sweetness and sparkling wines make me…well, agreeable. One big swallow for every “dude,” “bro,” and every time Aaron’s mouth drops open. Curl up and enjoy—island lighthouses are outrageously awesome and with Zak and the gang knocking around inside—it’s going to be a giddy fun evening.
