Ghost hunt at a haunted prison! The Dead Explorer investigates a scary jail in search of paranormal activity! Will a real ghost be caught on tape?
The Old Gonzales Jail can seem big and daunting. Space wise, there are two wings separated by a middle common area. Each wing is three stories tall. Early on in this video you can hear another investigator talk out loud and close a cell door. The crazy part was that investigator was in the other wing! The all steel construction of this building made it extremely easy for sound to travel vast distances. The challenge was to ensure that you documented all audio contamination. That is why you will see me call out different sounds, like a truck that passes by. You do not want to go home later on and dismiss a good piece of audio evidence because you are not sure if it was paranormal or man made.
Ghost Hunting Alone
There is a debate to whether it is safe to ghost hunt alone. Inherently there is always safety in numbers, but one can also argue that big groups can distract both investigators and the spirits. That is why from time to time I like to venture off by myself to perform an isolation session. I want to focus on the environment and see if I can attract a spirit to communicate with me one-on-one. After all, if a big group of people walked into your house all at once and demanded that you do something for them, you’d probably be put off. If spirits were once people, you have to think that they could still feel and react like when they were alive. I do have to warn everyone to take precautions before you go in a haunted location by yourself. Let someone know where you are going. That way if something happens to you, paranormal or not, people will know where to find you.
A Haunted Jail
This is the third time I’ve investigated at Gonzales County Jail and the thing that keeps drawing me back is there is always some kind of crazy unexplained activity. In my first investigation, a paranormal investigator seemed to get attacked! It’s one of the scariest moments I’ve ever experienced on a ghost hunt. In addition, the clock tower outside appeared to drain all our ghost hunting equipment when it chimed. The second time I visited I actually felt a spirit come inside me which is one of the very few times I have experienced something like that. Below are links to paranormal activity I’ve caught on tape while at Gonzales County Jail. After you watch this video check out some of the other footage from all these paranormal investigations, which includes the isolation session I performed in solitary confinement earlier that night.
