Zona "Greenbrier Ghost" Heaster Shue
Birth: 1876
Greenbrier County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Jan. 23, 1897
Greenbrier County
West Virginia, USA

Folk Figure. Known as The Greenbrier Ghost, her death in 1897 was presumed natural until her spirit appeared to her mother to describe how she was killed by her husband Edward. Autopsy on the exhumed body verified the apparition's account. Edward, found guilty of murder, was sentenced to the state prison. Only known case in which testimony from a ghost helped convict a murderer. (bio by: Laurie)
