Highball's Ghost and the Saint Valentine's Day Massacre

This past Saturday marked 80 years since the Saint Valentine's Day Massacre. Seven men were murdered in the garage of the SMC Cartage Company that day and the crime officially remains unsolved to this day. The only witness to the actual crime to survive was a German Shepherd dog named "Highball." The pet of one of the victims, the dog was discovered by police, cowering beneath a truck and howling in fear. One of the supernatural tales connected with the crime holds that on some nights passerby can still hear the howls of the long dead canine in the spot where the garage once stood.
