Wyoming ghost hunters have reported the discovery of a chandelier in Cheyenne (which they say is haunted), possibly the least weird of inanimate objects that could be possessed by ghosts.

Haunting Across America is paranormal investigation team based out of Wyoming and their most recent hunt has uncovered some allegedly creepy activity in the Knights of Pythias building in downtown Cheyenne.

A 15-second video posted to YouTube and the group’s Facebook page shows a chandelier slowly spinning allegedly on its own, briefly stopping and starting up again.

The building is used every fall as the Knights’ haunted house attraction “Nightmare on 17th Street.” Visitors are led through the huge building’s labyrinth-like basement into rooms themed around horror movie villains and other frightening elements (including clowns).

There are many reports that the building is haunted, and it’s included on the website “Haunted Places,” a resource listing allegedly haunted locations in all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.

Staff have reported feeling cold spots, hearing voices and footsteps and even seeing a shadowy figure standing at the top of the stairs.

Haunting Across America has an additional, 30-minute video that shows their investigation into the building, but be warned: you can’t see much (because investigations take place in the dark).

We can’t say whether or not the chandelier is for sure haunted, but we can say we have seen movies about way sillier inanimate objects doing evil deeds, so we’ll be here waiting for the movie of the haunted chandelier to hit theaters.

Ghost Hunters Investigate Wyoming Territorial Prison

Investigating the paranormal or “ghost hunting” isn’t actually frightening, according to a member of a Colorado paranormal investigation group.

Sara Igo, the fraud investigator for ParaFPI, was in Laramie last week with members of her organization to conduct an investigation at the Wyoming Territorial Prison.Igo said paranormal investigation is a way for people to learn there may be more to the world than they are aware of.

“It’s a science and understanding,” she said. “A lot of time people hear ‘spirits’ or ‘paranormal’ and they get freaked out or afraid. It’s nothing to be afraid of. It’s embracing that there’s much more to this world than what we can actually see or touch.”

The team was equipped with high-tech equipment, including sensitive audio recorders to capture electronic voice phenomena or “EVPs,” noises that may occur on the playback of a recording that were not audible at the time the recording was made.

The equipment used in investigations has improved dramatically over the years, said Bill Swayne, ParaFPI’s team manager, who started investigating the paranormal in the 1980s.

“Back then, we didn’t have fancy tools like this,” he said. “It was basically a compass and you would go out and you would try to find something. It really wasn’t cool back in the 1980s and 1990s.”

Here’s a look at how ParaFPI prepared for its investigation at the Territorial Prison.
