Scared to Death in Bellevue, Kentucky
In early September 1889 Bellevue, Kentucky was buzzing about a ghost that had been spotted in local store. A wealthy, headstrong woman named Elizabeth Rusconi insisted on seeing the phantom for herself and made arrangements with the owner to visit the store late at night.
That night when Mrs. Rusconi walked into the building, she immediately saw a bright light streak across the store. Due to her advanced age and having been overcome by fright, the affluent woman dropped dead of a heart attack.
After the death, city officials launched an investigation and sent people into the store to watch for the ghost. However, after one night of staking the shop out, it was determined that the mysterious light was a reflection of an electric light coming from a nearby building.
