Jen & Kim get inspired by the Great Amherst Mystery, which was and still is the most well-known and thought-provoking true story of poltergeist activity in Canada. Those who know the story may not know all of the details which the ladies uncover or even the compelling personality of a traumatized young woman, Ester Cox. Ester was completely tormented by something in the same province where Jen & Kim live, but almost 150 years ago. Is it true that the ghost who haunted Ester carved her name in her bedroom wall, or stabbed her in the back twice (with the same knife) into the same wound in 1878? And was it really Ester who burned down the barn?
