This week, I want to share a creepy Thanksgiving ghost story with you. It takes place in a California hotel that has been around for over a century. For many of us, Thanksgiving is an amazing day of celebration. It’s one of the few days that we can break bread with family and friends over a classic dinner. And if you’re an NFL fan, there are usually three games played on Thanksgiving. I don’t consider it a holiday meant for anyone to be alone.
Every morning in 2020 has become a new adventure. For many of us, it has been a nightmare. Earlier in the year, we set our clocks ahead an hour.

On December 1, 1971, a man named John Karnes arrived at 1318 N. LaSalle Street in Indianapolis. Karnes and others became concerned when business partners Bob Gierse and Bob Hinson didn’t show up for work at their microfilm company.

The hearing to set the trial of Jacob Bumpass occurred on October 27, 2020. He is being charged for abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. His charges involve Paige Johnson, a young mother from Covington, Kentucky who vanished on September 23, 2010. She was with Bumpass that evening. He claimed he dropped her off at 5th and Scott Blvd in Covington, Kentucky. However, his cellphone pinged at a location in Clermont, County Ohio early September 24, 2010. After being out with Bumpass that evening, no one ever saw Paige alive again.
Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. I can remember how excited I got as a kid every October. I often received a bag of candy from school from my teacher and classmates.
