General : Bangladesh Cricket Team confront ghost

Posted by Founder on 05-Aug-2005 18:22 (2806 reads)

The Bangladesh cricket team's tour of England has been fraught with testing challenges from pace bowling attacks.
But recently the players experienced perhaps the biggest scare of the tour while staying at a hotel that has a reputation for being haunted.

A ghastly apparition, clothed in white and accompanied by the anguished cries of a child, appeared by their rooms.

In the disturbance that followed, several guests were woken up, the hotel manager told the BBC News website.

Anguished cries

Team captain Habibul Bashar - at the forefront of the brave but futile resistance to the England bowling attack - showed similar resilience when confronted with the ghostly menace.

Habibul Bashar - 'took the ghost on'

"Apparently he rushed out and attacked the ghoul," Paul Mandeir, the general manager of the Redworth Hall hotel in County Durham said.

"In the ensuing melee, he awoke several other guests."

But this time it was not one of the many ghosts fabled to roam the hotel's corridors.

The offending spook was Bangladesh's fast bowler - and practical joker - Mashrafe Mortaza carrying a bed sheet and a tape recorder.

Horror movie

But the Bangladeshi players would have had good reason to be a little nervous about their accommodation.

The hotel's floorboards are 'ominously creaky'

The hotel is in a remote location surrounded by 40 acres of windswept moor land.

It is a Jacobean mansion which could make the ideal setting for a horror movie.

The hotel's newsletter may well have sent a shiver down the spine of some of the visiting players, who were sleeping three to a room.

It records the cruelty of Redworth's 18th century landowner, Lord Surtees, towards his mentally ill child who was chained to the fireplace and whose cries of anguish can still be heard.

It also tells the story of the peer's affair with his scullery maid, who committed suicide by throwing herself down the staircase when his wife discovered she was pregnant.

"It was not made any easier for the Bangladeshi players because they stayed in an older, quieter part of the hotel where the floorboards creaked ominously," said Mr Mandeir.

General : 'Ghostbusters' visit town theatre

Posted by editor on 30-Jul-2005 16:24 (2044 reads)

Ghostly goings-on at a Wiltshire theatre are to be investigated by a team of researchers.

Members of the Paranormal Site Investigators (PSI) will spend Saturday night at Swindon's Wyvern theatre to record their findings.

A spokesman for PSI said although a modern building was an unusual place for such activity, there is no evidence such a place could not be haunted.

A range of scientific instruments will be used to record their findings.

The spokesman said: "We are planning to use environmental monitoring instruments to measure electromagnetic field fluctuations, negative ion field, humidity, air pressure, spot and atmospheric temperature.

"The team will also use electro voice phenomena recorders and ultrasound detectors to monitor sounds beyond the normal range of human hearing.

"Finally infra-red boosted video cameras, digital cameras, 35mm cameras and 3d cameras are rigged up in an attempt to record any unusual occurrences," he said.

General : Players shrug off ghost sighting

Posted by editor on 30-Jul-2005 16:24 (3432 reads)

Australian cricketers are refusing to be spooked despite the sighting of a ghost at their hotel on the eve of their match against England.
Media manager Belinda Dennet said she saw a shadowy figure outside her window at the Lumley Castle Hotel, close to the Chester-le-Street ground.

Hotel management said it could be the resident ghost, Lily of Lumley, who was murdered there in the 14th century.

However the team themselves insist they are not afraid and are happy to stay.

Ms Dennet was staying in a room just off the downstairs courtyard, close to the well where the murdered Lily was thrown.

'Frequent sightings'

She said: "I was scared. I definitely saw something, a shadowy figure. It was either a ghost or someone looking through my window at 4am."

However, the fast bowler Michael Kasprowicz denied he or his team mates were frightened.

He said: "I'm not afraid. I encourage any ghost out there to come and see me. Please come and say g'day, and we will sit down and have a beer or coffee and talk things through."

John Dobbs, the hotel's operations director, said the ghost had been sighted frequently in the past.

"Lily was the first wife of Sir Ralph Lumley. While he was away she was murdered by two priests who threw her body down a well, but she keeps coming back and visiting our guests and staff.

"However, I'm sure there's no ghosts in Australia. They don't have castles there."

General : Trainee Nun Crucified

Posted by Founder on 24-Jul-2005 17:39 (3205 reads)

A trainee nun who was crucified in an exorcism at a monastery in eastern Romania and left to die has been buried in a religious ceremony.
The novice, Maricica Irina Cornici, died last week after being tied to a cross, gagged and starved.

Principal monk Daniel Petru Corogeanu, who said the novice was possessed by the devil, has been charged with false imprisonment leading to death.

The Orthodox Church has condemned the incident and suspended him.

Father Daniel has so far refused to stop work at the Holy Trinity monastery in Tanacu.

She was perfectly healthy. And I talked to her and prayed with her. She was not sick

Iustina Galca

Another novice from the monastery, Iustina Galca, told the BBC that the nuns had not even given Ms Cornici water during her ordeal.

When asked if the nuns had tried to protest against the woman's treatment, she said they had all obeyed the priest.


Members of the convent claim Ms Cornici was possessed and that the crucifixion had been part of an exorcism ritual.

Four nuns have also been charged with imprisonment leading to death for helping Father Daniel to perform the rite.

The five accused could face 20 years in jail if found guilty of the nun's death.

She was found dead on the cross on Wednesday after fellow nuns called an ambulance, according to police.

A first autopsy concluded the nun died due to dehydration, exhaustion and lack of oxygen, state news agency Rompres reported.

The young woman, who grew up in an orphanage and was in her early 20s, is said to have arrived at the remote convent three months before.

She was reported to suffer from schizophrenia. It is thought the symptoms of her condition may have led the priest and other nuns to believe she was possessed by the devil.
