“I advise all the black people of Savannah to beware of the ghost of the police officer who was known as Mark MacPhail. It appears he is damned to spend eternity between that parking lot and the bus station. And, he is terribly angry.”
|Mark Allen MacPhail, a 27 year old Savannah, Georgia police officer, was moonlighting as a security guard at a Greyhound Bus Station. In the early hours of 19 August, he was shot while harassing* blacks at nearby Burger King.|
Savannah, Georgia is considered one of the most haunted cities in America. In fact it has been named the “Most Haunted City” by investigators from the Travel, History and Discovery channels. The city’s list of historic haunted places include places like the Kehoe house and the Hampton-Lillibridge house.
But now, with blacks beginning to talk about their encounters with the ghost of officer MacPhail, the city’s historians may be forced to add a new presence to their many tales.
While officer MacPhail died in 1989, only now are blacks who claim to have been harassed by his poltergeist coming forward with their stories. Many, fearing legal reprisals, have remained silent.
