For a fifth Halloween, we’re following David Glidden. He’s the founding father of 4 State Paranormal and the YouTube series, Haunting History. His crew is on the lookout for proof of some haunting claims. They’ve full entry to 4 buildings on the property.

“It appears to be like like there’s a chilly mass,” Glidden mentioned taking a look at a tool.

The blue dots on this gadget present the air is getting colder. One concept is {that a} spirit absorbs warmth and power to make one thing occur and that leaves behind a chilly spot.

The toying with Glidden and Plein continued after they moved to Constructing One. One thing leads them up a flight of stairs and from one finish of the ladies’s ward to the opposite.

Glidden would ask one thing to make a noise. They might hear a response. And it appeared as if the sounds solely occurred after Glidden or Plein requested for it.

Voices and full-bodied apparitions have been captured on this constructing. However David and Plein captured one thing else. Passing in entrance of a cell, each had an electrical sensation fill their physique.

“It’s just like the hair on my neck is standing up,” Plein mentioned.

“All through the evening, Chad and I might expertise issues that we may solely chalk as much as as being private experiences,” Glidden mentioned because of no proof being recorded. “However the truth that they might occur inside seconds of one another, made it rather more compelling.”

Leaving Constructing One, the pair obtained an EVP, an Digital Voice Phenomenon.

“When a spirit communicates,” Glidden defined, “it communicates on a very low frequency that we can’t hear. It filters by way of on the microphone leaving its imprint on the recorder.”

“Sir,” is discovered on the recording in a deep whisper.

They didn’t hear somebody, politely attempting to get their consideration on the time.

One other EVP occurs as quickly as Glidden and Plein transfer into Constructing Three. This one comes after an electromagnetic spike on an EMF detector.


Then this constructing provides an clever response to one in all Glidden’s questions.

“Is one thing down right here?” Glidden requested into the darkish.


Simply after that voice, each Glidden and Plein felt one thing seize at their backs.

Years in the past, cold-blooded killers might be turned mad sitting in Constructing Three on demise row or in solitary confinement. However quickly, it felt like Glidden and Plein had been those dropping their minds.

“One of many strangest experiences I’ve ever had occurred with Chad in Constructing Three,” Glidden mentioned.

They entered the foyer of the basement. That is the one method to attain the south wing or the north wing. From the foyer, the pair remembered going left into the south wing.

“And in the end,” Glidden mentioned, “we got here out from the opposite aspect of the constructing.”

From the north wing. However to get there they needed to undergo the foyer they usually don’t keep in mind doing that.

Throughout that a part of the evening, they each remembered feeling confused in what’s a really, easy floorplan.

“We don’t keep in mind crossing that lit-up space a second time to get to the opposite aspect of the constructing,” Glidden recalled. “So it was virtually like we’ve got this lacking time, however we do have the footage of us strolling by way of there.”

“We haven’t been gone that lengthy,” Plein mentioned. “Have we?”

For Plein, it felt like they had been within the constructing for 20 minutes. However for Glidden, he was pondering it was nearer to 40.

“All people had fun and we had some private experiences,” Glidden mentioned concerning the evening. “And on prime of that, we additionally seize some issues that may be thought of questionable. It undoubtedly makes me wish to return to the Missouri State Penitentiary and discover its haunting historical past.”
