equipment of late night investigation

ORIGINAL STORY 2011 - Calhoun's old jail was searched for ghosts over the weekend.
Kelly Bell said a preliminary investigation with equipment indicated some positive responses, and occupants of the building have reported strange undefined sounds in the night.
Chief Deputy Carl Ballengee said prisoners have tragically hung themselves in about every cell during the jails history.
The jail was built as a WPA depression-era project about 1940, and was closed several years ago by mandate requiring prisoners to be housed in regional jails.

Bell says Mountain State Paranormal strives to resolve unanswered questions of the paranormal through 50+ years of knowledge in investigative techniques and to share knowledge.
The group uses high-tech sophisticated detection equipment, often seen on national TV.
A report of the findings will be issued.
