Warning: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
The first investigation of the night is Conrad-Caldwell Castle, in Louisville, Kentucky. It's a mansion smack in the middle of town that was built for the Caldwell family in the late 1800s. The problem is, the original residents may still be hanging around.
The design of the building makes it one of architect Arthur Loomis' greatest works. All the wood for this building was hand-crafted. It was a symbol of the success of Mr. Conrad and his wife, who went from poor immigrants to wealthy industrialists. But sadly, Mr. Conrad died in the house of a heart attack...on the basement stairs.
Mrs. Conrad sold the house to Mr. and Mrs. Caldwell, who lived there until Elaine Caldwell died in the home. The home then became a boarding house, then a nursing home and now it is a museum. The Caldwell's great grandchildren are the ones who called TAPS. They want to know if it is the ghost of Elaine who is causing the commotion, or the ghost of Mr. Conrad.
Among the creepy claims in the building are moving orbs of light, cabinet doors opening, and the presence of three women who many suspect are the women who retired together to the nursing home. People also report seeing shadow figures, hearing voices and footsteps; and the scents of perfume and cigars wafting through the air.
Most incredibly, there are claims that objects levitate in the building; particularly a spoon was seen floating down a staircase. It went down the hall to the butler's pantry and fell on the floor. Now, that's just creepy!
Jason and Steve are quickly able to debunk the claims of aeromatic presences in the billiards room. The old wood has clearly absorbed the odors over the years and still carry the scent. However, they are not able to explain the footsteps and voices that they hear all around them.
The clients are impressed by the audio footage of a voice saying "I see you Steven", right as Steve is walking through the room. It's crystal clear, yet Jason and Steve didn't hear it while they were investigating. Odd.
Next it's on to the Old Cumberland County Prison in Carlisle Pennsylvania. It looks like a castle, but the 1865 building holds many tragic memories. Now the locals hear footsteps, full-bodied apparitions and a HALF-bodied apparition (boots to the knees)! People feel like they are being watched by an ominous presence near the cells.
Could the experiences be traced back to an inmate named Charles Salyards? He was hanged on the property for murdering police officer George Martin. But the evidence was shaky and Charles proclaimed his innocence until the moment he died.
When Steve asks if the ghost is someone who isn't Charles Salyard, he and Tango hear a loud bang. Tango thinks that could be evidence that they are chasing the wrong ghost. Then again, it could just be Charles declaring his presence.
In addition to the personal experiences, Tango and Steve are pleased to share with the client audio footage of a voice saying "It wasn't me". That's substantial evidence during another great investigation.
