Have you ever been to one of those "haunted" houses with the actors that jump out at you? How about one where they were allowed to touch you? Ever want to experience it for real?
Then head over to the Old Jail in St. Augustine, Florida. A project funded by none other then Henry Flagler to make the prison less scary looking to tourists, the Old Jail was built in 1891 and saw a lot of horrors. The men and women imprisoned here were forced to do heavy labor and/or sex work, while the payment went to the prison. The conditions were terrible, hygiene was unheard of, and violence and death were regular occurrences.
The jail became a museum almost the same instant it was shut down, and many people believe the prison is haunted. Zoey takes us on a trip through time as she shares the horrible history and the paranormal aura that surrounds the prison.
One of the main ghosts is a shadow figure known as the Crawler, described as a shadow within shadow that moves and crawls along the floor, following any unlucky victim it sets it's sights on, sometimes catching up and grabbing their ankle.
Zoey had to walk Robin to her car after they recorded.
But first, Robin brings us a hilarious tale from a small town near Boone, NC where a herd of cows lead police to a suspect from a high-speed chase as her Something Southern.
