In 1937, a group of respected spiritualists and paranormal experts came together one night for a seance. The following is a transcript of an audio recording that was made of the events that evening.

[Sound of gun fire, sound of glass and wood breaking. For several moments there is screaming, then silence. After about 50 seconds there is a sound of wimpering]


CLAUDIA: W...will you show me where she is?


[Odd sound]


CLAUDIA: Okay... 


[Record ends]


No police reports were able to be found on the events, though it is well-known they all died that night. The audio recording has long-since been lost.
