In August 1878, a 19-year-old woman named Esther Cox went on a drive with a young man named Bob McNeal. Unbeknownst to her at the time, she was about to experience a year of torment and unexplained phenomena that some believed was in direct relation to the events of that afternoon. The date turned sour when McNeal turned a gun on Cox, but she escaped to the home she shared with her sister's family and in-laws.
A month later, unexplainable events began to plague the Amherst, Nova Scotia, home: strange noises, invisible creatures moving things, and ghostly apparitions. Over the course of a year, Cox dealt with these poltergeist activities that seemed to be inextricably tied to her. The events spurred the interests of Walter Hubbell, who stayed with Cox for three months to investigate what became the most famous Canadian haunting to date, and he later wrote a book about the ordeal.
