Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Lewis County Sheriff’s Office

Monticello, Missouri

Many years ago when the upper level of this building was used as a jail, an inmate drew a picture of a pentagon before hanging himself in the shower. Whenever this picture is painted over, the image returns. Other experiences relating to this incident are claims that security cameras have moved on their own and a cold feeling is felt when the ghost passes by. The employees here claim that the ghost is friendly.

And if it is friendly, where is the harm?! Home ghosts are nice as long as they don’t start to scare the hell out of you..

While the Pentagon may be frightening to some, I believe that a Pentagram was the true aim of the prisoner and/or the editors of this website

A prisoner drew a ‘pentagon’? You must mean a pentagram.
This site has such little content. A waste of a resource.

No, maybe “pentagons” are the new craze!

@ Cort, you spent 3 months in the jail? Not upstairs in the old jail I’m guessing… And I work here, you do hear things and see things on the camera. We were talking it about it at work tonight and I found this while researching…
