She was found dead on November 29, 1892, on the exterior staircase leading to the beach, of what was believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. This was five days after checking into the Hotel del Coronado in Coronado. A San Francisco lawyer, the late Alan May, speculated in the 1980s that her death involved foul play. Evidence for the alleged homicide was a passing statement (or misstatement), during the coroner’s inquest, that the bullet found in her head did not match that of her own gun. Nevertheless, whatever the merits of his book, he did revive interest in the subject by causing a stir with his murder theory. Officials who reviewed his speculations chose not to reopen the case.
There has never been any evidence that tied Kate Morgan to the death of “Lottie Bernard” at the Hotel del Coronado, although several authors have attempted to do so. Kate Morgan’s family or friends never came to identify the body, and the photo of Kate Morgan given by her employer did not look anything like the “Beautiful Stranger” that described the deceased. According to the Los Angeles Herald, dated December 9, 1892, it states that “cabinet size photograph of Mrs. Morgan, found among others, shows her to be a woman of about 28 years of age, black eyes, large ears, rather large open face and somewhat course features; her mouth is rather large and lips thick. The photograph contained no marks and had evidently been taken recently. The photograph does not denote the appearance of a woman accustomed to stopping at first-class hotels as a guest, or one who wears lace shawls; neither does it show her to be pretty, and the features certainly are not those of a highly educated woman.” Although the article was blatantly ignorant in its claim that one could tell the difference between and educated and uneducated woman, it does make a valid point on the difference in ones social status and appearance.
According to author and historian J’aime Rubio, the identity of the woman found dead on the steps of the Hotel del Coronado was none other than Charlotte “Lottie” Barnard of Detroit, Michigan. There is a Charlotte Barnard listed as living in Detroit in the 1890 & 1891 Census. Her address was at 351 High Street (West) and amazingly around the time of the death of the Beautiful Stranger, Charlotte Barnard disappears from any further listings in either the Census or the Detroit Directories. After extensive research of the Coroner’s Inquest report, documentation and archived newspapers, it seems that the Kate Morgan theory does not stand up when analyzed thoroughly. Rubio’s research claims that Kate Morgan may not have died, but disappeared to San Francisco and was later listed on the San Francisco Census in 1900.
In January of 2014, the world heard a harrowing story about a woman and her family experiencing demonic possession and paranormal activity in their Gary, Indiana rental house. What made this story so compelling to so many people and what has happened since?

I recall it was a Sunday (Jan 26) when the story of Latoya Ammons and her three children appeared on the Indianapolis Star news website. I had a feeling it was going to be a popular story and wrote it up right away on Doubtful News. It was clear to me from the detailed piece by journalist Marisa Kwiatkowski that the case contained some serious flaws.
It sounded just like a Hollywood movie. Dramatic behavior was described by the police, a priest and health professionals who were disturbed by the case. Yet, as with almost all of these astounding cases, we see described the typical behaviors related to “possession” (none of which have ever been verified other than by religious believers to be actual demon possession). We are offered many eyewitness reports and opinions but no solid evidence of bizarre events – no photos or videos. The witnesses who describe the events, especially Ammons herself, hold a belief in the reality of the supernatural. Even the police interpreted events in a paranormal light, seemingly swallowing the stories they were told at face value. A sense of religiosity in the victims’ daily lives is apparent. A credulous priest encouraged the belief in demons and performed an exorcism. The story snowballed.
Kwiatkowski revisited the circumstances around publishing the story which became the “most-read piece in The Indianapolis Star’s history.”Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
