It looks like your typical public library. Rows and rows of books. Fiction, non-fiction, history, mystery. You name it, they've got it at the public library in Scottsdale, Arizona. But what's unique about the Mustang Branch - it's supposedly haunted.

Librarian Pam Beach shared of an encounter she heard about from another library staffer. "And it would've been like on a Sunday morning. early before we opened. We're usually pulling holds and he said it just sounded like footsteps in the other aisle. So, he went around to look down that aisle and he couldn't see anything."

Employees says lots of strange things happen between the stacks and the storage areas.

"We are in our work area and will often hear things going along in the library especially when it's a little quieter," says Librarian Louisa Aikin. "Several people have reported that there's a funny, kinda squeaky wheel sound - almost like a book cart that needs some WD40. And that's one we think comes the closest to some kinda of encounter."

To try and figure out who is haunting the library, the Unexplained Cases team tagged along with Sonora Paranormal Investigations to try to get some answers about this haunted library.

"We definitely got some voice responses to things. We'll defiantly have to do some analysis of it. Amy Millington Seemed more to me like a lot of it was related to the people who were here with us."

The group believed that they had made contact with some spirits via their high-tech gear. "Sometimes it's pretty clear like over there some of the stuff that was said was pretty clear. SPI used audio and video equipment to capture evidence of the paranormal.

"So hard to describe but it's like you are hearing static like something that's filtering through a spiritbox. When you listen to the spiritbox. But when you hear something, it's like you have to shut off the noise that you're hearing and it'll come like on top of the noise.

On my camera, I appeared to capture some sort of light anomaly zipping across the room. The interesting thing about this evidence is that it appeared when a team member was asking a spirit to manifest in that specific corner.

So, does any of this prove that the library is haunted? Probably too hard to tell right now. Great ghost stories and the team will go over the evidence they collected. But this place is pretty creepy.

America's Most Haunted Lighthouse | Unexplained Cases (2022)

Written by:  Rick Garner Case Filed: 2/21/22 Executive Producer:  Rick Garner   This story begins in 1830 on the southernmost tip of Maryland. Although there are no photographs of the original structure, the first Point Lookout Lighthouse was 1 and a half stories tall and a third of the size of the structure you see here. The much smaller, original Point Lookout was built for three thousand, three hundred fifty dollars. In 1883, the second story was added allowing home for two keepers and their families and for lighthouse work to be shared. On September 20, 1830, the first keeper, James Davis, lit the light. And when Raymond Hartzel completed his duties on January 11, 1966, Point Lookout said goodbye to its last keeper of the light. Point Lookout had a total of 19 keepers - men and women. William Yeatman served the longest term from 1871 until his death in 1908. The property has been owned by the U.S. Navy, civilians and currently by the State of Maryland. The structure has been

Unexplained Cases | Historic & Haunted: Hotel San Carlos

Written by:  Darren Dedo Case Filed: 10/31/21 Executive Producer:  Rick Garner   The Hotel San Carlos in downtown Phoenix is historic and many say this grand old place is haunted. It opened in 1928 -- before it was the location of Phoenix’s first school. Even before that, ruins of an ancient Hohokam Village. A little cool factoid: The hotel can be briefly seen in Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 film Psycho opening shot, as the camera pans the then-skyline of downtown Phoenix. Over the years the San Carlos has hosted political leaders and movie stars like Marilyn Monroe and Spencer Tracy. But, the most famous guest or I should say ghost -- was 22-year-old Leone Jensen. The story goes that Jensen checked into room 720, and later jumped to her death from the top of the San Carlos. She was supposedly distraught about her abusive boyfriend, who was a bellboy at a nearby hotel. Some say she was pregnant and was pushed to her death. The one thing most people agree on when it comes to Leone,
