We are a local Paranormal Research Team filming and investigating places for the brand-new TV series, called True Ghost Stories. Upon our scouting and places to film and investigate for the show, we ran across the well known and documented place in Colfax Louisiana called ” The Colfax Riot Of 1873, which has a very bloody history. After all research was done, we finally went into investigate. The history there is still very much alive and active as we we caught everything from shadows, to disembodied voices and several other strange phenomenons.

    I don’t know if someone reads this but I’m trying to figure out who I can contact to try to see if my ghost hunting group could try to come here to go ghost hunting. We are a small channel on YouTube called the Ohana spirit speakers.
