  1. My mom worked at the court house on the green as a security officer. So one night my twin sister and I was with my mom and we heard the elevator. We told our mother she then thought someone was in the building that wasn’t supposed too be. So she proceeded to do her rounds. As we approached the elivater shaft, the elivater was going up and down by itself. Or was it the judge? I don’t know. She then hit the up button and it came down n the doors opened and there wasn’t any one there. Our mother then started telling us about the judge that had got shot when he was convicting a man, thats the man said to have shot the judge.

  2. My boyfriend and I decided to go and take some pictures on the green about a month ago to see if we would see anything. I’m a big believer & live these kinds of things but I’ve never actually seen anything until that night. There were blue orbs following us around the whole night. I’m talking every time we pulled out our cameras there they were. I’m one picture we actually captured what look likes a face in one of the windows! I can’t begin to explain how excited I was.
