DOOR KNOB GHOST

DURING WORLD WAR II, IN DARIEN, GEORGIA, TWO WOMEN LIVED
ALONE WHILE THEIR HUSBANDS WERE IN SERVICE. ONE NIGHT
WHEN ALONE THEY SAW THE DOORKNOB TO THEIR BEDROOM DOOR
TURN. DECIDING TO FIND OUT THE CAUSE OF THIS, ONE
STOOD BY THE DOOR TO JERK IT OPEN WHILE THE OTHER WAS
GOING TO HIT THE ASSAILANT OVER THE HEAD. WHEN THE
DOORKNOB TURNED AGAIN, THEY OPENED THE DOOR TO FIND
AN EMPTY HALL ON THE OTHER SIDE. IN THIS SAME HOUSE,
THEY FREQUENTLY HEARD BABY CRIES WHEN THERE WAS NO
BABY IN THE HOUSE.
