Ghost Adventures - Execution Rocks

This Friday Zak, Nick, and Aaron will be visiting an island that few paranormal investigators have ever step foot upon. Execution Rocks has been home to executions, murder, and accidental death. In order to tackle an island with this much history the guys are pulling out the stops and using all sorts of equipment.

The holidays are are here so I hope you get an opportunity to relax and spend time with your friends and family. As always, feel free to share this info with friends, readers, or other fans of the show!

Episode info:

Execution Rocks is given its name because British soldiers used the rocks around the island to carry out executions. They would chain the prisoners up at low tide and wait for the water to slowly rise until the prisoners were drowned. The prisoners were in the water for up to twelve hours before the water rose high enough for them to drown.

It is standard for a lighthouse keeper to commit to living in a lighthouse for a year. However, lighthouse keepers at Execution Rocks were allowed to cancel their contracts and leave at any point. Many keepers were frightened by strange phenomena and choose to leave early.

One of Americas most notorious serial killers, Carl Panzram, was a big fan of the lighthouse. Carl Panzram once stated, "I have murdered 21 human beings. I have committed sodomy on at least 1000 male human beings. For all of these things, I am not in the least bit sorry." The lighthouse was his chosen place to dump the dead bodies of his victims.

With all of the dark history surrounding the island, is it a wonder that few paranormal investigators have payed visit to the lighthouse.
