Some Spiritual people say that spirits like to come back to the places they most felt comfortable in if they’re death is accepted. If they die in a tragic accident, they may haunt the place they died.
We have put together a list of the most famous celebrities who have died and have said to come back and haunt several places. These include their houses, places they worked, where they visited.
Where would you visit when you die??
Born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962. Marilyn was one of the most famous ladies of all time. From an actress to Model and some say even JFK’s little bit on the side.
The blonde sex symbol died on August 5, 1962, apparently due to suicide. Her body was found naked with a bottle of pills at the side of her body. On the death certificate is it written down as acute barbiturate poisoning. There are a lot of conspiracy theories on this.
Anyway Marilyn’s Ghost has been said to roam in The Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood in front of a Mirror which was at the time in her room and of course she has said to be seen at her home in Brentwood, California where she died. Some people have even said they have seen her near her burial site at the Westwood Memorial Cemetery.
So if you see the mirror maybe strike a pose and Marilyn might show you her former self.
Born John Winston Lennon; 9 October 1940 – 8 December 1980. John Lennon first found fame with The Beatles and was also a successful songwriter who became a peace activist.
John was murdered at around 10:50 pm on 8 December 1980. He was shot four times by Mark David Chapman outside his door to the entrance of his New York apartment.
Around 1994 the surviving members of The Beatles; Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison all got together to do a remake of the song “Free as a bird”. This song was written by John Lennon before his untimely death.
When the band members were in the recording studio, strange things started to happen from equipment turning themselves on and off to lots of strange noises being heard which should not have been there. McCartney’s quote was “There was just an overall feeling that John was around.” As he was always a playful spirit when living and maybe he is still like that in death?
Abraham Lincoln February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865 was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. He was killed by a Confederate spy named John Wilkes Booth. Booth knew the president would be going to the Ford’s theatre that evening. The now unguarded President, because his bodyguards left the building leaving Lincoln, his wife and the vice president alone in his state box up on the balcony. Seizing the opportunity, Booth crept up from behind and at about 10:13 pm, aimed at the back of Lincoln’s head and fired at point-blank range, mortally wounding the President. After being in a coma for nine hours, Lincoln died at 7:22 am on April 15.
What makes things creepier is that it is said that Lincoln has dreams several nights before going to the theatre that night. He dreamt that he was going to be assassinated.
The white house is said to have spirit of Lincoln roaming the halls and room especially in what was his own bedroom.
Lincolns own wife Mary Todd Lincoln claimed that she has seen him and has even had her picture taken with him well with his spirit. Lots of people who lived in the White House or visited said they saw his ghost. Eleanor Roosevelt to Winston Churchill has seen Abraham Lincoln’s spirit. Maybe he left this world too early or has some unfinished business, before he can fully cross over.

However many people have refused to believe that George Reeves would kill himself and have pointed out that no gunpowder from the gun’s discharge was found on the actor’s skin, leading them to believe that the weapon would therefore have to have been held several inches away from his head when it was fired.
Apparently Reeves still reportedly haunts the home where he allegedly committed suicide/was possibly murdered depending on who you believe.

A few years ago a film crew was videoing his house when his spirit came to them and he was dressed up in his Superman costume.
