Ghosts and the law don’t seem like two things that go together. But throughout history there have been several instances where the two intersect. In this episode we tell you about several ghosts that solved their own murders, about the only legally haunted house in the United States and the time when testimony from a ghost was used in court.

To some, the Winchester Mystery House is considered to be the most haunted house in the world. It’s maze like corridors and stairways that go nowhere just seem like a natural location for ghosts. But what is the history of this bizarre, sprawling mansion? And was there something more that drove Sarah Winchester to build and keep building until she died?
