Atlanta people and places

Did a ghost steal her umbrella?

Kate Morgan and Martha Jo Katz , of east Cobb,  vacationed at the same San Diego hotel more than 100 years apart. Yet it seems they visited during a recent trip - even though Kate died mysteriously all those years ago.

Ola Woods of Atlanta was headed to the market for some fresh produce one day but what she encountered on the way left her so shaken, she can't remember if she even got her veggies. David Moore spends his days in the City of the Dead - Atlanta's Oakland Cemetery. He can't explain what he saw one day when a photographer snapped images near a mausoleum.

We asked readers for their ghost stories and heard quite a few. Some tales were funny. Some kept us up at night. If you have one to share, email us at or For now, hear from people who have heard and seen and felt things they can’t explain.

"Spooked," is  narrated by Mark Davis and produced by Steve McCoy . In the first episode, Will Gara of Grant Park talked about the shadowy figure he has seen in his doorway, who always seems to bring bad news. Scott Addison of Fayetteville recalls the time he was home alone, except he wasn't. And Nadia Lelutiu of Tucker talks about her family's time living in a house where she'd hear "Mommy, mommy!" and hear little footsteps running in the hall - when her son was fast asleep.
