Ghost Adventures – Hauntings of Vicksburg – Spirits Under Siege – Part 3
The Tour of Vicksburg continues with Zak and team at two new locations. The first is a former Elk Lodge, supposedly the home to severe negative energy and site of an unsolved murder. The second is the Kuhn Memorial Hospital, which treated smallpox patients and Civil War soldiers.
Malcolm Carson own the Lodge and tells how he makes repairs, but the next time he shows up, his work is undone. Additionally, tools go missing so he keeps buying new ones. Most would say this is the work of vandals or shoddy workmanship, but to Zak, it’s the work of paranormal spirit energy.
The first thing to note about the Lodge is that it’s completely falling apart. There isn’t a straight line to be seen or a board that isn’t rotten. However, when Zak steps inside and something falls amidst all the visible debris, he claims something was thrown at him.
He also picks up and EVP that says, “Let me get out.” How he discerns those words is beyond me.
When Zak goes to visit the Kuhn Hospital, he comments the building is the face of evil. He follows this up with conversations from two paranormal investigators. John says he had an ordeal that drove him away from the hospital and this is first time he’s been back in 4 years. He doesn’t explain that incident other than saying something was watching him.
David says he was investigating when the spirit of Michael said he was going to kill one of their investigators. Nothing actually happened to any of them, but that is their story. When Zak speaks of Michael they hear a bang. They make a frantic charge up the stairs only to stop after a few steps. Additionally, Zak says he sees someone moving down the hall.
However, the bang and figures are revealed when Zak finds two construction workers loading a dumpster.
The actual investigation is broken into two parts. Zak, Bill Chappell, and Billy will investigate the Lodge with Aaron and Jay over at the Kuhn Hospital.
Bill Chappell has come out to create an EMF vortex so he can capture it with a variety of devices. This experiment creates a lot of EMF energy that they can all feel and react to. Bill admits the effect of that high of EMF is disorienting.
And then the big evidence of the night happens, a board falls over. Zak and Billy make a huge deal that a 4×4 board of that size couldn’t possibly fall over on it’s own, it’s just too heavy. How is something too heavy not to fall?
But, it’s not too heavy for Bill, who picks it up with one hand without any strain. Zak continues to expound on how profound this evidence is and how it’s proof of poltergeist activity since there is no visible way to explain why the board fell.
Over at the hospital, Jay and Aaron send themselves into a fit as they discover someone is walking around the hospital with them. They clearly capture a figure. So clear in fact, it’s obvious it’s another person. And their big discovery for the night is a pile of Ziplock bags of poo.
Another piece of evidence they capture is something climbing on the wall. A wayward animal climbing a wall wouldn’t be a stretch for this location.
With the investigation over, all the focus is on the board falling over. Zak says the board is so heavy you need to two hands to pick it up. He’s completely wrong as we saw Bill pick it up with one hand. Zak is utterly convinced that a board falling over is the work of spirit energy and will not accept any other explanation.
Zak is free to believe whatever he wants, but this is another example of his paranormal hypochondria. He should also look up the subject of gravity.
