Feb. 14th—“The Cock Lane Ghost” 
Can disembodied spirits give evidence against their murderers?
A purported haunting that attracted mass public attention in 1762 on Cock Lane, a short road adjacent to London’s Smithfield market and a few minutes’ walk from St Paul’s Cathedral. The event centered on three people: William Kent, a usurer from Norfolk, Richard Parsons, a parish clerk, and Parsons’ daughter Elizabeth.
