The Ghost Hunters @ Essex County Hospital
When you see pictures of the place, it’s just plain creepy. THEN – when you realize that Essex County Hospital housed paitents until 2007… even creepier. (and lets not forget the estimated 10,000 people that died there too.)
Within MINUTES of their arrival at the Hospital things began to happen. Whispered voices responding to of handed questions. Footsteps walking behind the cast and crew in an area that had no entrance or exit. Every single TAPS member had a chance to bring home their own personal expirence from what Jason called, “The creepiest place” they had ever investigated.
(And let me say that includes the Stanley Hotel, Eastern State Pen., and their trip to New Orleans when they all heard a woman screaming that wasn’t there…)
To give a quick recap – Jason and Grant heard the sound of something being wheeled away and found a cart, but no one pushing it. On the Thermal Camera they caught a moving figure that shuffled out of sight. Footsteps were heard as they were recapping what had just happened. In Building 3 they were answered when they asked a question about a ceramic house they found. During the NEXT recap they heard noises coming from above, chased them down – but found nothing.
Joe and Britt heard footsteps and saw shadows move by them. (And it seems the camera man noticed too because his reaction was just as quick as theirs.) They also caught a male voice that made a “CH” sound as they were discussing where to go next with the cameraman.
Joe and Kris heard lots of sounds when they were in building 5. Britt used their new head camera and heard footsteps behind him. (granted he did run into Steve and Tango moments later – and the only other moment debunked was when Kris and Amy heard noises in building 3 that turned out to be vertical blinds.)
Steve and Tango, while hanging out in the refrigerator in the facilities morgue, caught a voice on their camera that sounded like, “I’m here.” The voice was clearly female. At another point when they were doing an EVP session (and Tango asked if anyone there was crazy) a microphone Steve had set up was moved. No one saw it, but it wasn’t where Steve had left it.
But I think the end all evidence that was captured at Essex County (Creepy as Hell) Hospital would be the Floating Camera. No one in the room and the DVR shakes, lifts up, pauses mid fall and then is set on the ground.
A half hour later one of the camera crew found it.
That was one hell of a mid-season finale! Oh my favorite TAPS members, I will be patiently waiting for your return. Please don’t make it too long… 😉
Take a moment to head over the Jason and Grant’s TAPS home where they have schedules on where and when you can meet them – classes that they teach about paranormal investigations and so much more.
I do have to agree with them – Essex County Hospital was the creepiest place they’ve ever been too… so far.
(once the footage of their findings is posted online I’ll set you up with a link!)
