Campaign to Investigate Hauntings Gains Momentum
“Just talking to some residents, they are interested in the case and have mentioned that this would help the county if we find evidence in this building to be placed on a historic haunted place (register),” Sinclair said. Apparently, the facility is listed in an encyclopedia of haunted places.
Sinclair said he has talked with several former employees of the care facility who have given him anecdotes that may indicate paranormal activity at the site.
In addition to the stories of hauntings, Sinclair said he has heard other more personal stories, as well as the story that the newest wing of the care facility was built over a cemetery. Still, he insists, he does not want to stir up old scandals that may be attached to the facility.
Sinclair said the paranormal team was hoping to gather about 2,000 signatures to take to the board of supervisors in their efforts to gain access to the former care facility. The team will be in Newton Friday and Saturday gathering signatures. In addition, residents can sign an online petition at http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/midiowa-paranormal.html
