The following report was sent into our website by Jessica on Oct 30, 2010:

“We were on the haunted walk Ghosts and Gallows October 29th 2010. We had a group of about 30 people and I was quite disappointed because what are the chances of anything happening with that many people. Well that’s what I thought anyways. We were close to the end of the tour and at the death row cells I was bored and just started staring into cell #2 and stopped listening to the tour guide’s stories, just hoping something would spook me. I noticed there was a cast iron bed lined up against the left wall of the cell and there was nothing else at all in there, just empty and nothing special. I turned away and not even 30 seconds after there was a dragging and a huge loud ear popping bang. I turned back to the #2 cell I was standing in front of and noticed the bed was no longer against the wall but slanted in the middle of the cell. Every single person on the tour was screaming and freaked right out.”
