Murdered: Soul Suspect has such a unique twist on its storyline thanks to the writers of Square Enix and Salem, Massachusetts. Having recently played through the game, I enjoyed traveling throughout the town and stumbling upon new discoveries.

There are several ghost stories throughout the town of Salem. Upon discovering one item to a certain story itself, you must find the others to unlock its completed story played back to you in a flashback. Other types of lore give details to the rich history that once plagued Salem. Many of these can be found on the ground, walls, floors, and even as plaques. Using your ghostly powers is an asset when it comes to discovering some of these.

Here’s your list of Ghost Lore:
  • A Watery Grave – 7 items
    • These items (water tanks) are found throughout all the apartments, basement and pool table room
  • A Bell Tower Banshee – 11 items
