    1. Visited this place early this morning (May 13) from 2:30am to 3:30am and my friends and I were greatly disappointed.

      Sensed nothing at all.
      Digital Photos showed nothing.
      55min digital voice recording resulted in no evp.
      We placed toys on the graves of children – no activity to that.
      Ouija board for at least 20min, again nothing.
      Even asked to be scratched but again nothing.

      If this place was indeed haunted, it is not anymore. Great disappointment to me for I really wanted to experience something. O well, on to the next location.
