Bonnie and Clyde Death Car

"Bonnie Elizabeth Parker (October 1, 1910 – May 23, 1934) and Clyde Chestnut Barrow a.k.a. Clyde Champion Barrow[1] (March 24, 1909 – May 23, 1934) were American criminals who traveled the central United States with their gang during the Great Depression, robbing and killing people. At times, the gang included Clyde's older brother Buck Barrow and his wife BlancheRaymond HamiltonW. D. Jones, Joe Palmer, Ralph Fults, and Henry Methvin. Their exploits captured the attention of the American public during the "Public Enemy Era", between 1931 and 1935. Though known today for his dozen-or-so bank robberies, Barrow preferred to rob small stores or rural gas stations. The gang is believed to have killed at least nine police officers and several civilians. The couple were eventually ambushed and killed by law officers near the town of Sailes, in Bienville Parish, Louisiana. Their reputation was revived and cemented in American pop folklore by Arthur Penn's 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde,[2] in which they were played by Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty." - Wikipedia

From their fame and death, people were able to find a way to make a profit.  There were several fake cars touted to be the real death car that Bonnie and Clyde were killed in that were displayed to the public for a fee.

Resurrection Mary and More

In Lemont, there are many supposed hauntings. One is the famous Resurrection Mary in which this long dead woman is said to hitchhike on Archer Avenue and sometimes asks to be dropped off at the Willowbrook Dance Hall or to house that she lived in long ago. Not far is St. James Church which is also said to be the scene of several sightings of ghostly monks and figures. Here is my investigation:

Haunted Cuba Road

On a quiet road in Barrington, there is an old cemetery.  This stretch of road is said to be very haunted.  Some see orbs floating around the cemetery and others have reported a phantom car that races down the road and disappears.  There is a history of the area and it appears that this area may be the scene of an old FBI chase after Baby Face Nelson.  I've looked at the area twice and have done two separate videos on the area.  Here is an updated video.

Haunting at Aztalan

From an older investigation and one of my earlier vids.

Haunting at the Volo Barn

I took a trip to the Volo Museum and the alleged Haunted Volo Barn.  I will say that I did have some experiences there that seemed strange.  When entering the barn, I did feel a cold spot and did smell a sweet smell.  At first I thought it was some sort of potpourri or incense and thought it was a sweet smell such as cherry coconut.  I was told later the odor is supposed to be cherry tobacco.

The only photographic anomaly was the shadow of a man's face with possibly a hat on that appeared on a photograph I was taking a picture of.  It is shown in the video I listed on youtube.

Here is the rest of the investigation.

At some point, I would like to go back and do a further investigation.  For now, I would compare this experience with something similar I experienced at Aztalan.
