About William J. Hall:
William J. Hall was born and raised in Bridgeport, Connecticut,where the events of this book took place. He watched the news coverage of the Lindley Street haunting on TV when he was 10 years old.
Hall is professionally equipped to recognize trickery. After more than 25 years as a performing magician, he knows how to create and recognize illusions.
He is experienced in researching the unexplained, from folklore and urban legend to fortune telling, the pyramids, and other mysterious tales. His syndicated 1990’s column “Magic and the Unknown” ran for six years in multiple local papers in his home state.
What may be the most notorious and most terrifying poltergeist haunting of recent decades, the Bridgeport poltergeist was seen and heard by thousands of people on one unforgettable day in 1974.
One of the local youngsters, William J. Hall, remembers every detail. Hall grew up to become a magician and a well-known investigator of the paranormal and the unexplained, writing a syndicated column on those subjects for many years in Connecticut newspapers.
Now Hall returns to his past to share never-before reported interviews of the first responders and other witnesses, and previously unrevealed documents and reports, in a journalistic new book, The World’s Most Haunted House: The True Story of the Bridgeport Poltergeist on Lindley Street. Return to 1974 and feel the Lindley Street experience from the inside.
