    1. I went on the second floor for a holiday tour and seen 2 young children poke their heads out from under a twin bed. And the second time I visted the hotel, I meet a local resident and asked her if she mind saying a prayer for the spirits there. We both went up stairs alone and she lead the prayers for the people that were killed in that hotel and we both seen a mannequin cry. That sealed the deal for each of use, that the hotel needs a preacher to come and bless the hotel and tell the people that were murder there to go to the light and help them cross over to the other side.

    2. We visited this place in 2002 and was taking the tour of the facility and taking pictures, several of the photos were blurred and distorted were as one particular photo showed a little boy in a restricted area he was not dressed for the period had on very old and tattered clothing.
