Messy Monday Mystery...!

Nothing like a good mystery to start the week off right!

I guess that I like these mysteries that remain unsolved the best. They allow plenty of room for the imagination to run wild!

The House of Blood
1987



In Atlanta, Georgia, just prior to midnight on September 8, seventy-seven year old Minnie Winston found what appeared to be blood splattered on her bathroom floor and fetched her seventy-nine year old husband, William. Further searching by the couple revealed more spots of red, blood-like fluid on the bathroom’s lower walls, the kitchen, living room, bedroom, hallways, and basement. Blood was also found in a crawlspace and under a television set.

Nothing like this had ever happened in their rented house before and the couple were understandably alarmed. They owned no pets and lived alone together. Unable to come up with a satisfactory explanation, and with blood continuing to come out of the floors and walls, Minnie and William called the police.

At first, their concern wasn’t taken seriously. William regularly underwent dialysis at home, but he and his wife insisted the blood belonged to neither of them. On police investigation, laboratory results showed the liquid was human blood, Type O. Both William and Minnie were Type A. Once detectives ruled out evidence of wrongdoing, they were at a loss to explain the phenomena and dropped the investigation.

Was the “bleeding house” a hoax perpetrated on the Winstons? Or evidence of poltergeist activity? We’ve been unable to discover what happened to the couple following the events in 1987. Current records indicate the house at 1114 Fountain Drive is occupied.


Kinda makes you wonder what is going on, doesn't it? This would be an interesting place to spend the night, ya know?

Coffee in the kitchen this morning. It might rain and why take the chance?

Don't think I'd want to stop by there for coffee any time soon.
All of us prefer the good, safe, fun place of yours, Mr. Hermit! I'll bring a triple layer chocolate cake for all! (with colored sprinkles on the top)

Don't you just hate that when the walls bleed?

That's an odd and disturbing one. Would certainly ruin my day.

Coffee is almost ready. Have a good one.

I think it is poltergeists since the lab confirmed it was human blood. Very good mystery for this cold, windy and snowy Monday. Would love a cup of coffee inside tis morning.

JO said...

No, I'll let you go sleep there. I will be at your house keeping the coffee hot waiting for your return to let us know how it went.

This is really a mystery. Most bleeding walls or such turn out to be a red liquid other than blood, but not this one. I wonder if that house is still "bleeding" or if that was just a short time event?

Hey Phyllis...
You don't think I'm gonna spend the night there by myself, do ya?

That cake sure does sound good, however! I will sure take a slice of that!

Thanks for dropping by this morning!


Hey Sixbears...
Not exactly something I want to wake up to, that's for sure!

Thanks, my friend, for coming over this morning!


Hey Linda...
Whatever the cause, it's not something I want to experience!

Does make for some good reading this dreary day, though.

I sure appreciate you coming over this morning!


Hey Jo...
If you ain't going, I ain't going! We can both stay and keep the coffee warm!

Thanks, sweetie, for the visit this morning!


Hey Dizzy...
I wasn't able to find any further info on the house.

Might be a good idea to just tear the place down, I think!

Thanks, buddy, for coming over today!

Rented house is the key! Someone wants them to leave because the rent is to low or they want to sell it without making the older couple and others think the owners are cruel!

I think someone was trying to frighten the couple away.
Asshattery knows no limits, apparently.
