At Psychology Today, Katherine Ramsland Ph.D. has put together a short read of some serial killer tales and supposed hauntings.

It makes sense that a property such as the old farm in La Porte, Indiana, where Belle Gunness buried over a dozen victims would gain the reputation of being haunted. However, since her actual fate is unknown and she might have died elsewhere, that her ghost supposedly shows up there (and in local stores) seems more like tales that kids tell to scare other kids.
The same with Fox Hollow Farm, also in Indiana, where Herb Baumeister burned and buried the remains of eleven men. His wife let the police investigate in June 1996, as Baumeister fled to Canada to kill himself. Their son had found a skull on the property and Herb had dismissed it as part of a medical model from his father’s collection. When detectives went to where the skull had been, they found a scorched area.
