The entire premise of the Dave Glover show Halloween special was based on a movie I saw as a child called “The Ghost and Mr. Chicken” starring Don Knotts. Basically you put a coward into a haunted house and challenge them to spend the night. Our “coward” way back in 2001 was a lovely young woman named Evette McCullough, who turned out to be anything but a coward. We put poor Evette through hell that night, sending her on various “missions” which took her from the attic to the basement of the Lemp mansion. After completing each and every task assigned to her, she made a panicked 4:00 am call because she heard china being crashed on the floor of the basement.
Evette was convinced that we had placed a “confederate” in the mansion, and that person was trying to scare her into giving up. We assured her that we had no one in the mansion, and she insisted that we come get her. Upon arrival we found dozens of china dishes stacked in the basement, but none broken. This was also the year that we found the famous “I’m not telling” EVP.
