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.

Unexplained Cases | Baltimore Street Murder House

Almost anywhere you go in Gettysburg you will come across a place that is supposedly haunted. It is very easy to understand why. Tens of thousands of men lost their lives here in this small Pennsylvania town in July of 1863. We visited one unassuming and haunted location that was here during the Battle of Gettysburg and was a casualty collection point just like many buildings were used for back then. It would make sense that the spirit who sets off ghost hunting gadgets in this Baltimore Street home fought and died in the Civil War. But, this resident spirit has no connection to the Battle of Gettysburg. Our guide for the evening, P aranormal Investigator Robert "Night Monkey" Simmons  with Gettysburg Paranormal Association / Gettysburg Ghost  Tours . He  shares with everyone the details.  “The morning of August 31, 198

Field Reports from Priestley House - Canton, Mississippi

Written by: Jeff Rent Case Filed: 10/31/02 - Canton, Mississippi Executive Producer: Rick Garner At a glance, you can draw many parallels between the cities of Selma, Alabama, and Canton, Mississippi. Both are popular sites for Hollywood filmmakers. Both are full of historic antebellum mansions. And both seem to contain an abundance of ghost stories. The Priestley House in Canton is one of these homes where residents say they're living with spirits. Owner Frankie McMillan says, "I did not believe in ghosts before I moved here. I thought they were silly. And it took me a while living here to believe it."

Mystery of the Mothman | Unexplained Cases (2024)

Written by:  Rick Garner Case Filed: 2/19/24 Executive Producer:  Rick Garner   One of the cases we’ve always wanted to open is that of the Mothman. When it comes to urban legends, this guy takes the proverbial cake. He checks off all the boxes: cryptid, paranormal, interdimensional. And if not for this winged red-eyed creature, Point Pleasant, West Virginia might only be known for a tragic bridge collapse that occurred on December 15, 1967. The Silver Bridge collapsed during heavy rush-hour traffic, claiming 46 lives. Sightings of Mothman in 1966 and 67 linked the creature to the cause of the collapse, but an official investigation determined stress corrosion cracking in an eyebar led to the disaster. I had the chance to meet and speak with Steve Ward at the world famous Mothman Museum. On the subject of Mothman, Steve is an expert. Well, this is the world's only Mothman Museum. And it came about because of the sightings that took place back in the middle 60s. There were John
