The Story About the woman found dead was in the well.
Before the restoration the Palace was a Chinese School, a hotel, a bar, at the time of the restoration in 1929 it was a clothing store. The body found was a baby girl she was found in the wall in the chapel. From time to time Ursala Veramendi the wife of James Bowie appears from the doorway that leads from the kitchen to the dinning hall. bye J.R. Alamo City Ghost Tours.

Ok I can understand why she would start to haunt the place after her skeleton was found, but came on how can they determine if she was raped and especially by who. Iam not saying it’s fake but get your facts straight.

okay people to determine whether or not someone has been raped you would need to examine more of the remains than just the bones. There is no way to tell if someone has been raped after that amount of time has passed and their flesh, etc. has decayed. so lets not call names, especially since most of the name calling is being done by the people who clearly dont understand what an autopsy entails to begin with.

She could have been haunting the palce the entire time, they just did not notice it.

*SMH* People, people, people!!!! Ugh, number one: u cant do an autopsy on bones, this is correct, but the story says,”Apparently, which means it “appears that she was raped” not fact, secondly:if it is a “spanish” governors mansion, im sure there are documents to prove the incident. and last but not least, TAKE A CHILL PILL PEOPLE!!!!!!

In general, you people are completely dense and I hope that you all die.

just kidding.

But, maybe some of you should learn how to spell. And I found it particularly interesting that there was a note right before you wrote your comment that asked you to “please use correct grammar… etc” (as if that was so much to ask).

Also it’s spelled “autopsy” idiot.

…And “*” does not replace “a”.

You all suck.

multiple people who agree with this above statement 100%:

I lived in San Antonio for several years and have been to the Governor’s Palace many times. I have never ever seen, felt, or heard a single thing out of the ordinary. Sorry.
