"In twenty years of psychic investigations into ghosts, haunting, poltergeists and demonic like possessions, I have never encountered a more malevolent or destructive case than that which I experienced at Bobby Mackeys in Wilder, Kentucky. Doug Hensley, in "Hell's Gate", has taken on the formidable and dangerous task of telling the story. Through his eyes can be seen the images of the dark side of human nature and how collective Evil insidiously breaks down the spiritual protection of those who challenge it naively. This is a very convincing story, but more than that it is a nightmare of the real."
President United States Psychotronic Association
"Bobby Mackey's was one of the scariest ghost busting jobs I've ever been on. Johana tried pushing me down a very steep stairway. I saw a ghost named Pearl holding her head and repeating over and over "Oh, my head. Oh, my head." There was a male ghost named Scott repeatedly yelling at her that it was her fault he and his friend, Alonzo, were dead. There were ghosts in the bathroom, on stage, in the caretaker's apartment, near the bucking bronco, and in the main bar. They were everywhere. The story of 'Hell's Gate' is compelling, and true."
And Author of "Hands that Heal" and "Passion to Heal"
"This case is proving to be one of the most fascinating and best documented in the literature. It has all the elements of a genuine haunting, and I have a feeling that things aren't over yet!"
By Douglas Hensley

I was standing at the bar, taking pictures of some customers on the other side of the bar.
Did I happen to capture something else from the other side?
After I seen this picture on my digital camera, I attempted to duplicate whatever this is.
Every other picture was cystal clear, with no trace of anything unusual.
I realize that the image is the result of cigarette smoke, however,
it looks very much like a woman wearing a veil with a dagger in her hand.

KENTUCKY - Wilder
Several malevolent ghosts roam Bobby Mackey's at 44 Licking Pike in Wilder, which is across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, about 1.5 miles south of Covington on Highway 9. The dance hall is located just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. Country singer Bobby Mackey converted an old warehouse into a dancehall in 1976, and ever since he had it renovated, people have been seeing ghosts dressed in old-fashioned clothing and cowboy attire. Last year, a customer was accosted by a ghost in the men's restroom. The man was washing his hands at the basin when someone kicked the trash can, and he turned around to see who it was and encountered a tall ghost wearing a cowboy hat. He says the ghost threw him to the floor and broke his arm, and he's suing Bobby Mackey for not getting rid of the malevolent spirits in his building. That there are ghosts there comes as no surprise. The building was constructed in the 1850s and was used as a slaughterhouse. A deep well was dug in the basement to collect animal blood and body fluids, and when the slaughterhouse closed, Satanists used this Well of Blood for rituals. In 1896, two Devil worshippers beheaded a woman and used her head in their ceremonies. Before they were hanged, the men were offered life sentences in exchange for disclosing the whereabouts of the missing head, but both refused, claiming that to do so would bring the wrath of the Devil himself. The cursed building was a speakeasy in the 1920s, and several unsolved mob murders added more violence to the site. So far, 30 witnesses have signed affidavits testifying to ghostly phenomena at the nightclub, and one of the employees became possessed and had to undergo two exorcisms.
