Spirit of Johnny Stompanato Jr. haunts graveyard

Some say Oakland Cemetery is chock full of the paranormal. Oakland Cemetery was established in 1859 and holds dozens of children from the Chicago Industrial Home for Children.

The children mysteriously died between 1894 and 1926. Also resting there is Johnny Stompanato Jr., a bodyguard and enforcer for crime boss Mickey Cohen and the Cohen crime family.
Johnny Stompanato, renowned for his violent temper, soon abused film star Lana Turner. Her teenaged daughter fatally stabbed Stompanato to death in 1958.
Its said that people standing near his gravesite have reported suddenly feeling abrasive energy and becoming angry or irritable for no reason.
