Unexplained Cases | America's Most Haunted Small Town

Written by: Darren Dedo
Case Filed: 3/29/19 - Alton, Illinois
Executive Producer: Rick Garner



Alton, Illinois is what you would call a true river town. Its waters are the Mississippi, the Illinois and the Missouri. Alton was born in 1818 after Rufus Easton established it as a river town and gave it his son’s name. Alton is known for Limestone bluffs and historic homes. At one time confederate prisoners of war were kept behind bars in the Alton Military Prison during the Civil War.

Alton, is certainly a quaint, old, historic Midwest community. Some say it's the most haunted small town in all of America.

The Unexplained Cases team wanted to find out for ourselves if Alton is a hotspot for paranormal activity. One place we’ve always wanted to investigate, the McPike Mansion. Its owner is Sharyn Luedke.

“I’m basically a big chicken, I do not watch scary movies, I don’t do any of that. But you now own one of the most haunted places in America? I do,” said Luedke.

So, who haunts the home…

Field Reports from Sloss Furnaces - Birmingham, Alabama

Written by: Rick Garner
Case Filed: 10/31/01 - Birmingham, Alabama
Executive Producer: Rick Garner



Having never been to a steel plant, in production or not, I had no idea of what to expect.

10:35 p.m. - We begin a guided tour of Sloss Furnaces by Chris Simon, employee of McMillan Associates. Chris claims to have psychic abilities. He also admits that he's not skilled enough to always interpret what he senses. Psychic Rosemarie Sellner assists Chris in his interpretations, while cameras attempt to document everything.
10:55 p.m. - I receive a strong pain in my right ankle, that subsibes after leaving the building. We move up to the next level, the catwalk. Chris claims to have seen a white glowing light here with no source. It's difficult to breath; the air is heavy. Janis captures orbs and temperature fluxes are around a huge pipe suspended in the air, going to an upper level.
