Discovery Channel and Investigation Discovery will be airing stories about murder, ghosts, demons and cannibals for Halloween weekend, starting tonight with the season premier of Ghost Lab.
GHOST LAB INVESTIGATES THE LIZZIE BORDEN HOUSE
By now we’ve all heard the story: “Lizzie Borden had an axe and gave her father 40 whacks…”
We know there was murder in her house that she was suspected of committing. She was acquited. The real killer was never found. For decades now there’s been rumors that the murdered souls are restless and still lingering about Lizzie Borden’s house.
What will Brad and Barry of the Everyday Paranormal team turn up when they investigate the notorious house? All will be revealed tonight on Ghost Lab.
Here’s a couple of clips to whet your appetite:
Ghost Lab airs on Discovery Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST/ 9 p.m. CST.
