Conrad Aiken House
Savannah, GA

This 19th-century row house was the childhood home of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Conrad Aiken. In 1901, Aiken listened from his room as his parents argued, then heard his father count to three before shooting his wife and himself. The young Aiken emerged from his room to find the lifeless bodies of his parents, a scene that would influence his future writings. Years after the murder-suicide, Aiken moved back to Savannah and purchased the house next door to this one. The current owners agreed to a paranormal investigation, documented by Court TV's Crime Library where an infrared video revealed over fifty orbs, and digital voice recording captured a man's voice whispering, "Do you want to know what I know?"
