Event location is The Old Paulding County Jail, 112 South Williams Street, Paulding, Ohio, 45879
This is a small intimate event. This is a first time for this event, and we believe this will be amazing!
This is 1 of 4 of our Birthday Celebration Events this year! Not only do we want to honor our resident spirit's birthday, but this will also serve as a paranormal experiment, to see if activity is higher and if our ghosts like a birthday party!
Reservations are EXTREAMLY limited and are on a first come first serve basis.
While there are several resident spirits that reside at The Old Paulding Jail, there is one, who communicates with us in the dungeon tunnels and cells in the basement and she is Nancy Eagleson.
Nancy was a beautiful 15 year old girl who was born July 3rd, 1946 and resided in Paulding, Ohio. One fateful night, back on November 13th, 1960, Nancy was abducted while walking home from the movie theater with her little sister. After an extensive search, she was found murdered along a wooded area not far from home. Law enforcement conducted years of investigations, yet her murder case has remained unsolved to this day.
In 2013, the previous owners of The Old Paulding Jail discovered a false wall in the basement. After they opened the wall they discovered the catwalk tunnels and 6 cells that were bricked over as well. They opened the first cell to find what was later believed to be missing evidence (a piece of dress and a shoe) that belonged to Nancy. BCI was on scene for a week after the discovery, yet found nothing more. The items were sent to the crime lab with hopes of obtaining some new information. However, DNA tests came back as inconclusive as the DNA was far too degraded.
Nancy communicates with us on a regular basis and we even have a photograph (pictured on this event) that was obtained in the dungeon cell in the basement where the evidence was found.
We have some theories as to why she is at the jail. Could it be because her evidence was hidden there? Could it be that there is something more to find in the cells that haven't been opened and are still bricked shut? Could it be because she is there looking for help and answers on finding her killer? We are not quite sure as of yet, but we get a bit closer to those answers each year. We hope to one day have the killer revealed to us.
This year marks Nancy's 73rd Birthday, were she still alive today.
We spend a lot of time at The Old Paulding Jail, and quite honestly, we are on very good terms with the Spirits and they are much like family.
This year we want to do something special for Nancy. We want to celebrate her birthday and continue our communication and research into this tragic event that happened to her, by not just dwelling on the sad event that took place, but by also having a small party for her and celebrating her Birthday. We know every child and teenager likes to have a birthday party!
