Known throughout Tennessee as 'Old Kate', the Bell Witch took up residence with John Bell's family in 1818. It was a cruel and noisy spirit, given to rapping and gnawing sounds before it found its voices. With these voices and its supernatural acts, the Bell Witch tormented the Bell family. Here, Brent Monahan recounts the only documented case in U.S. history when a spirit actually caused a man's death.
