Tune in this Friday (11/16) for the season finale of Travel Channel’s “Haunted Live” featuring The Tennessee Wraith Chasers‘ (interview) investigation of one of the most legendary paranormal legends in the US, the Bell Witch case, the only haunted house to ever be investigated by a state government and deemed true.

The legend goes that the family of a local farmer named John Bell was plagued by a mysterious and violent spirit for nearly four years. The spirit identified itself as the “witch” of Kate Batts, a neighbor of the Bell’s, with whom John had experienced bad business dealings over some purchased slaves. The haunting involved spectral creatures, disembodied voices, unbelievable violence and even resulted in the death of John Bell — all at the hands of the infamous Bell Witch. Today, a log cabin and school stand on the property; and only one person has spent the night in the cabin without fleeing the Bell Witch.



Joining the Wraith Chasers on this epic investigation is special guest Bob Bell. Bell is the fifth great-grandson of John Bell Sr., who died at the hands of the Bell Witch in 1820. He is the owner and operator of the local funeral home near Adams, TN and is a fifth-generation embalmer. When Bob was young the Bell Witch story was not spoken about by his family until strange incidents started to happen in his grandmother’s home. Dishes would fly out of the cupboards and footsteps would be heard on the steps. Finally, his father revealed to Bob the legend of the family curse. After a lifetime of paranormal experiences at the hands of the Bell Witch, Bob is steadfast in his belief that his family is yet to escape her grasp.
