Supernatural Beings:  Ghost of Dr. D.H.H. Holmes

Goof--When Sam and Dean are showing Jo pictures of H. H. Holmes' victims, the last picture was a victim that was not his. The final black and white is Jack the Ripper's third victim, Elisabeth "Long Liz" Stride.

Trivia--The photograph of the victim H.H. Holmes was said to have murdered was actually a photograph of Jack the Ripper's victim - Elizabeth Stride, 1888.


  • One of the mortuary photos seen on the table is of Elizabeth Stride, a victim of Jack the Ripper.
  • Reportedly, many people died after Jeff Mudgett/H. H. Holmes was killed. Outlaw and Cellmate, Marion Hedgepeth, informed the police about Holmes and eventually was shot by a police officer after being released. The "Murder Castle"'s caretaker, Pat Quinlan later committed suicide by taking strychnine and his relatives believe to have been jaunted for months.
  • The loft set from season 2's episode "No Exit" was transformed into artist George Darrow's apartment for the episode "Crossroad Blues".
