The Ouija Board Jury:
Three jurors in the 1993 trial of Stephen Young for two counts of murder were unable to make up their minds over the defendant’s guilt or innocence. They sought help by using a Ouija board to commune with one of Mr Young’s victims. The spirit of Henry Fuller duly appeared. Fuller had been killed with his wife Nicola, and in his ghostly reincarnation Henry confirmed that Young was the pair’s killer. “Vote guilty tomorrow” was his instruction, via the Ouija board. Young was convicted – and re-convicted at the retrial for the inevitable “material irregularity” in the first proceedings.
