GHOST BOX SESSION FOOTAGE
Ghost Head Soup return visit to the Road House on August 20, 2017
The following audio is a direct result of collecting data for paranormal research only.
The first response sounds like Jiggs, which is the nickname for the Deputy Sheriff Willard "Jiggs" Burright.
This interesting response seems to be telling us the last name of the Deputy Sheriff Willard Burright and just afterwards we heard "Gun smoke"
The following clip Dean had this notion to ask an oddball question. His question was "What color is the Chicken" He had asked this several times throughout the night. Upon entering the upstairs apartment they came across the old Stenhouse chicken display, which happened to be Brown...so the following clip on ghost box was quite exciting.
Also in the above clip you will hear a deeper male grumbling voice use Mike's name - we believe it might be referencing "wanting the one called Mike"
In the upstairs office area, one of our hand-held video cameras display screen started to flicker. It was about the same time the ghost box says something about the Devil. "Mess with the Devil"
In the clip below you will hear several responses, one of them says: Be Afraid & Need Help.
According to the Freeport Journal-Standard dated June 26th, Authorities termed the death a passion slaying. Chief Deputy Sheriff Willard Burright stated that circumstances at the scene and a reconstruction of the crime indicated that it was a crime of passion.
Please click on the Mary Jane Reed Webpage link above to see a lot of the case details about the murder of Stanley Skridla born May 8th 1920 & Mary Jane Reed born November 15, 1930 began on June 24, 1948.
We are Paranormal researchers and as we research locations like the Roadhouse we come across some information that seems to coincide with some of the cases we investigate. Due to the sensitivity of the family's involved we are only reporting our findings as this being an unsolved murder.
Also in memory of the young couple who made a decision that summer night to go out and enjoy themselves. They were living to live, not living to die and someone took that away from them. It's not really about anything else but these two young adults who just wanted to live.
We are hoping that this case is solved without leaving any questions behind.
Could you imagine that one day the real murderer could communicate into our devices and confesses to the crime? Would that be proof enough?
