1)JR is not the only one who does haunted tours in San Antonio.
2)The Spanish Governor’s Mansion is downtown not far from the River Walk and the Aztec Theatre.
3)This is not a hotel. It is a museum. You can’t stay there overnight.
4)I participated in a haunted tour of the mansion (not with JR) led by the curator and there were a lot of horrific stories from this place. A little girl was found dead in the well, many people were hung from a particular tree in the back courtyard, and a woman did die there. I don’t remember any stories about rape or seeing a portrait of Mary (although it could have been there). I believe the mansion is older than the Battle of the Alamo.
While we were there, things unexplicably moved.
If you go there, talk with the currator about his haunted stories. He’s and the visitors have had quite a few.

There were stories about the haunting before the bones were discovered. It is just that the discovery of the skeleton of a female lent veracity to the stories.

That is the most stupid story I have ever heard. I have never heard of that happening in the Spanish Governor’s Palace. Logically speaking, though, how could an autopsy on a pile of bones make such a determination? None of the story adds up, I live in Texas and have my whole life, I have heard most of the stories around, and this is certainly not one of them. I think it’s just probably just another vile rumor set about to further attempt to make Texas history more dark. I did hear and have read on the original Spanish lieutenant governor being executed not far from there, along with his Spanish noblemen.

Whoever sent this in obviously doesn’t know how to tell a story. If the bones revealed the woman was “raped” it brings to light a whole new meaning of “Jumping Bones.”

this isn’t stupid.
Some ghosts don’t know they’re dead until someone moves thier bones, or messes with something they were familiar with such as renovating a house, moving a bed they used to sleep in, moving a doll they used to carry around or something of the sort. Ghosts aren’t always just linked with a site. They can be connected to a certain object also. Such as one one of the above mentioned… a bed, a doll, even clothing. ghosts don’t need much to stick around. because they don’t know they’re dead. Which makes perfect sense as to why she didn’t haunt the place until her bones were found. Which is like she was waiting there for someone to find her. Now that she’s found, she haunts the place.

How, even with forensics, can they even say the person was raped with nothing but the bones? Child bearing, male or female- yes you can tell- but NOT if one was raped. How would you know? What’s the proof? As far as the ghost aspect is concerned, ok, I can live with that possibility-not the rape aspect of this story- it simply isn’t feasible with the findings of the remains unless it has been scientifically proven.

Well this story can be true they could have found her skeleton, but from that they can not say she was raped that is impossible because their is no tissue or anything like that to be able to confirm it. But to uncover her remains can cause her spirit to be unresting because they disturbed her resting spot.

Well that’s great to know, but I have never heard of this story either.Where is this place located? Like give an address and I’ll go see if this is true. It might not be true in some aspects of the story, but I would like to find out if possible so if someone knows an exact location please inform me.
