OPERATION TIME: 1845 to present
On October 13th, 1907 at 1:30 AM, a group of naval officers claimed that Lt. James Sutton went insane and shot himself in front of the other officers. The very same day, Sutton’s ghost began to appear to his mother and sister, who lived in Portland, Oregon, and did not know of his death yet.
Sutton told them that he didn’t actually shoot himself, and that he was in fact beaten to death by one of the naval officers. After this occurrence, the Suttons started an investigation. They asked that his body be exhumed from the Arlington Cemetery, and, upon autopsy, it was discovered that Lt. James Sutton had been beaten before being shot. No one was ever charged with murder.
