Peggy Cove in Nova Scotia, Canada, is home to a grieving ghost:
“The site of the famous Peggy’s Point Lighthouse in Nova Scotia is said to be haunted by the ghost of a woman who took her own life in 1800. According to legend, the woman—whose name was Margaret—was the survivor of a shipwreck that killed her children, and, in her grief, would often wander the rocks at the edge of the sea.
“One day her husband, in an attempt to cheer her up, was dancing on the rocks, slipped, and suffered a fatal head wound. Shortly after his death, she took her own life by jumping into the sea at the spot where he died. Today, there are reports of a mysterious lady in blue who looks poised to jump into the sea. When someone tries to help, she disappears.”
One of my favourite true crime shows is Investigation Discovery’s See No Evil. I like experiencing a true crime narrative through recorded evidence, and this show is always packed with security camera videos, recordings of police interviews, and audio clips like emergency calls or tapped phone calls.
The scariest and most unique aspect of this show is that the crimes happen to very charming, innocent people who happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. In most of the cases, because the violence was so random, finding leads outside of the victim’s social circle made it nearly impossible to identify a suspect. But, with the ever-seeing eye of CCTV, police are able to patch together very accurate timelines for the crimes.
Sometimes bad things happen to good people, and it makes the terror of the show’s case files that much worse. Could happen to anyone at any time. I find myself hoping to be on camera when I’m in random places. If I’m going to be assaulted, I sure hope the attacker could be identified.
