BRIDGES AND I HAD TO SPLIT UP TO DO THE RESEARCH ON THE HISTORY OF THE OLD WYOMING STATE PEN. BRIDGES TOOK THE LOCAL LIBRARY AND I WENT TO RAWLINS WHERE THE STATE PRISON IS NOW. THEY CLOSED THE OLD PEN DOWN IN 1981. WHEN THEY DID THEY MOVED THE RECORDS TO A CENTRAL LOCATION AT THE NEW PRISON. I WAS ABLE TO GET INSIDE AND MANAGE TO TALK TO A SECRETARY OLD ENOUGH TO BE MY MOTHER WHO'D BEEN THERE FOREVER. NOT ONLY DID I GET THE RECORDS I WAS AFTER BUT I ALSO GOT SOME HISTORY OF THE OLD PRISON THAT I THINK YOU'LL FIND INTERESTING.

THERE WAS AN INMATE IN THE OLD PEN NAMED MICHAEL KINNSINGTON. HE WAS CONVICTED OF CHILD MOLESTATION AND THE MURDERS OF 7 KIDS THAT THEY KNOW OF BACK IN THE EARLY 1970'S. THEY PUT HIM DOWN IN OLD SPARKY IN 1979 BUT THINGS DIDN'T GO AS PLANNED. THE SECRETARY I SPOKE TO DIDN'T KNOW TOO MANY DETAILS BUT SHE SAID THAT SHE'D HEARD THAT THERE HAD BEEN A MALFUNCTION WITH THE CHAIR AND KINNSINGTON DIED SCREAMING. AFTER THAT HAPPENED THERE SEEMED TO BE AN INCREASE IN ACTIVITY AROUND DEATH ROW AND THE KILL CHAMBER.

THEY BUILT THE NEW PRISON AND SHUT DOWN THE OLD ONE. STARTED DOING TOURS SOON AFTER. NOW WHY ANYONE WOULD BRING A YOUNG KID INTO A PLACE WHERE MEN DIED I HAVE NO IDEA EXCEPT TO SAY SOME PEOPLE ARE IDIOTS.

IN APRIL OF 1980 A COUPLE WAS WITH THE TOUR AND THEY GOT TO THE DEATH ROW AREA. THEY HAD A LITTLE GIRL ABOUT THREE YEARS OLD WITH THEM. THEY TURNED THEIR HEADS FOR A SPLIT SECOND AND THE KID WAS JUST GONE. THEY LOOKED FOR HER AT THE TIME AND LAUNCHED A FULL SCALE SEARCH BUT NOTHING WAS EVER FOUND OF HER. DISAPPEARED WITHOUT A TRACE.

IN JANUARY OF 2003 THE MOTHER DIED - CIRRHOSIS OF THE LIVER. AFTER THE KID WENT MISSING LIKE THAT SHE ENDED UP KILLING HERSELF SLOWLY BY CRAWLING INTO A BOTTLE ON A DAILY BASIS. MILDRED (THE SECRETARY) SAID THAT SHE'D HEARD THAT THE MAN HAD KILLED HIMSELF. THE NIGHT HE BURIED HIS WIFE HE PUT A SHOTGUN IN HIS MOUTH. GUESS HE WAS JUST HANGIN ON FOR HER. IN APRIL OF 2003 - 13 YEARS AFTER THE CHILD WAS TAKEN - THE COLLEGE KIDS DIED (THAT GIRL IS STILL MISSING - PROBABLY DEAD, NO BODY EVER FOUND). IT'S IMPORTANT HERE TO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS PLACE STANDS ON A LOT OF GROUND AND THERE ARE BASEMENTS AND SUBBASEMENTS DOWN THERE. THE BODIES COULD BE ANYWHERE.

I BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED IS THAT THE CHILD WAS TAKEN BACK IN 1980 AND HER SPIRIT LINGERED, TRAPPED. WHEN HER DADDY DIED HE WAS ATTACHED TO THE PRISON BECAUSE OF HER DISAPPEARANCE AND HE SOMEHOW JOINED HER. THIS MADE THE SPIRIT OF KINNSINGTON STRONGER AND ENABLED HIM TO KILL AGAIN. HE WAS MORE THAN LIKELY ABLE TO TAKE THE KID IN THE FIRST PLACE BECAUSE SHE FIT HIS VICTIM PROFILE. THAT'S MY THEORY ANYWAY.

THERE WAS NOTHING TO SALT AND BURN. KINNSINGTON'S BODY HAD BEEN CREMATED AND SO HAD THE KID'S FATHER. THE KID WAS NEVER FOUND. THERE'S A PRIEST HERE. GUY BY THE NAME OF FATHER JEFFERSON. HE WORKS CLOSLY WITH HUNTERS OUT THIS WAY AND HE WAS ABLE TO COME WITH US AND DO SOMETHING LIKE A CLEANSING RITUAL THAT WE BELIEVE HAS HELPED THE KID AND HER DAD MOVE ON. WE HOPE SO ANYWAY. WITH ANY LUCK KINNSINGTON WON'T BE ABLE TO MANIFEST HIMSELF ENOUGH TO DO THIS AGAIN WITHOUT THE HELP OF A GRIEVING PROTECTIVE FATHER TO HELP HIM.

WE'LL SEE HOW THINGS GO ON THIS. IT'S NOT TOO LONG BEFORE APRIL. BRIDGES IS KEEPING AN EYE ON THINGS AND WILL CALL IF ANYTHING NEEDS TO BE DONE.

HERE'S A PICTURE BRIDGES FOUND IN THE LIBRARY ARCHIVES.

Old Pen

IT SHOWS A VIEW FROM THE AIR AND GIVES A GENERAL LAYOUT OF THE PLACE. NOT SURE WHEN IT WAS TAKEN BUT IT'S ABOUT ALL I COULD FIND. I'M SURE THERE ARE OTHER PHOTOS OUT THERE BUT NONE WE SAW. BY THE TIME WE WENT BACK TO FINISH THIS THE SPIRIT ACTIVITY IN THE PLACE WAS SO STRONG THAT THE PICTURES BRIDGES TRIED TO TAKE CAME OUT ALL WHITE NOISE.

K. BRIDGES (HUNTER:WY) CALLED RE: SUSPICIOUS DEATHS IN WHAT WAS ONCE THE OLD WYOMING STATE PENITITENTIARY AT LARAMIE, WY. GHOSTLY ACTIVITY FREQUENTLY REPORTED SINCE PEN WAS CLOSED IN 1981 AND REOPENED FOR TOURS, THOUGH NO DEATHS OR INJURIES OCCURRED UNTIL APRIL 2003 WHEN FOUR STUDENTS FROM NEARBY UNIV. WERE REPORTED MISSING AFTER THEY FAILED TO RETURN FROM BREAK.

AFTER SEVERAL WEEKS PASSED, WITNESS CAME FORWARD WITH INFORMATION THAT THE STUDENTS HAD PLANNED TO TOUR THE OLD WYOMING STATE PRISON AFTER HOURS. (GOD SAVE US FROM IDIOTS HUNTING GHOSTS FOR KICKS!) A SEARCH WAS STARTED WITHIN THE WALLS OF THE FACILITY - WHICH WAS LOCKED AT THE TIME PENDING REPAIRS BEING MADE FOR PUBLIC SAFETY (THE PRISON IS OPEN FOR TOURS ONCE AGAIN; TOURS INCLUDE DEATH ROW AND GAS CHAMBER).

INSIDE GAS CHAMBER WERE FOUND THE BODIES OF THREE OF THE STUDENTS, THE THREE MALES (TORN APART, VERY NASTY BUSINESS) - THE FEMALE, IDENT. AS KIM STANTON, REMAINS MISSING. CHAMBER WAS LOCKED.

BRIDGES CONTACTED BY STANTON'S FAMILY AFTER FURTHER DEATHS AND MORE MISSING YOUNG WOMEN IN SUBSEQUENT YEARS. WHATEVER'S DOING THIS ISN'T STOPPING AND ONLY THREE MORE MONTHS BEFORE WHATEVER IT IS WILL MORE THAN LIKELY MAKE A REAPPEARANCE.

WALKED THE HALLS OF MOST OF THE PRISON, INC. LOCKUP, DEATH ROW, ETC. HIGH EMF READINGS EVERYWHERE - NO SURPRISE. PHANTOM VOICES, SMELLS, SCREAMS. BRIDGES WAS PUSHED FROM BEHIND ONCE WHILE WE WERE INV. NO SERIOUS INJURY BUT HELL OF A BRUISE ON HIS BACK - WHATEVER HIT HIM DIDN'T WANT US THERE. PRISONS ARE NOTORIOUS FOR HAUNTINGS AND THIS ONE NO EXCEPTION. OVERCROWDING, ABUSE.

HAS TO BE ONE COMMON THREAD LINKING THE DATE IN 2003. NO DEATHS UNTIL THEN. WHY? CORONER'S REPORT STATES T.O.D. A WEEK (+/- 72 HOURS) BEFORE BODIES FOUND, THAT WOULD PUT THE DEATHS BETWEEN APRIL 4TH AND APRIL 7TH. WITNESS STATED VICS PLANNED TO GO IN THAT FRIDAY SO TIMES SYNCH UP.

MORE RESEARCH AT LIB. TOMORROW. ALSO GO OVER STATE PRISON RECORDS & SEE PROF AT UNI RE KIM STANTON.

NEED TO FIND THIS SOB AND WASTE IT.

BEEN IN TEXARKANA FOR TEN DAYS NOW INV. SIGHTINGS OF WHAT I THINK MIGHT BE WHERE PART OF THE HOOK MAN URBAN LEGEND CAME FROM. FOUND INFORMATION IN COURT RECORDS DATING BACK TO THE 1940'S RE. COUPLE WHO WERE THE FIRST VICTIMS OF A SERIAL KILLER NAMED "THE PHANTOM" - THEY LIVED. THEY WERE THE ONLY ONES TO SURVIVE WHAT POLICE CALLED THE MOONLIGHT MURDERS.

A MONTH LATER ANOTHER COUPLE WERE SHOT TO DEATH BY A .32 CAL REVOLVER - POSSIBLY A COLT - AND SOON AFTER THAT ANOTHER COUPLE WERE MURDERED USING THE SAME WEAPON.

ALL TEENAGERS, ALL IN LOVER'S LANE TYPE SITUATION, ALL FEMALES SEX. ASSAULTED.

SUSPECT ARRESTED AND CHARGED FOR THE MURDERS (WHICH STOPPED AFTER THE MAN WAS CAUGHT). KILLER DIED IN PRISON THREE MONTHS AGO AND NOW MORE COUPLES HAVE BEEN MURDERED USING THE SAME M.O.

FOUND PRISON RECORDS GIVING LOCATION OF KILLER'S BODY. SIMPLE SALT AND BURN.

RUMORS AND SPECULATION RAMPANT IN TEXARKANA LINKING THE PHANTOM'S VICTIMS TO A COMMON URBAN MYTH: THE HOOK MAN, THOUGH ALL VICTIMS WERE SHOT. THERE IS ALSO A LEGEND (VARIATION ON SAME) THAT THE VICTIMS WERE TIED TO A TREE AND STABBED TO DEATH. SUPPOSEDLY, IF YOU STAND BY THAT SAME TREE YOU FEEL THE ROPES TIGHTEN AROUND YOU.

SPENT TIME NEAR THE KILLING TREE AND ALL I GOT FOR MY TROUBLE WAS A STRAY DOG TRYING TO USE MY LEG AS A FIRE HYDRANT.

LEAVING TEXAS TOMORROW.

Found the boys on here. Why am I not surprised? Looks like they started keeping journals of their own as well as forming a community of sorts where Hunters can check in. Not a bad idea on their part, though neither one of 'em will own up to suggesting it.

It's helpful, though. I'll be able to keep tabs on them without keeping in too close contact with them. I may be working a few jobs here and there but they're mostly simple stuff. I have the bigger picture to keep looking at here so avoiding distractions is a big plus.

I've seen 'em a time or two. Noticed them doing a few things that brothers aren't normally supposed to do, but those two are stubborn as hell. They'll keep doing whatever it is that they're doing and hopefully I can avoid getting an eyeful by accident some day. I know it's probably just the fact that they're my boys, but both of 'em are damned pretty, so it's no wonder they can't seem to keep their eyes and hands off each other.

At any rate, they have no idea I'm keeping an eye on them either personally or through other Hunters - though if I found their journals on here then they can probably find mine so they'll know soon enough that I'm looking out for them when and where I can. Hopefully they'll also know that I've always done for them the best I could and that I love them both, though that's not really something you'd hear a Winchester say (unless it's Sam - that boy always has seemed to be "in touch with his emotions" as Oprah might say).

LEFT JERICHO A FEW WEEKS AGO. DEAN HAS ALWAYS DONE HIS JOB SO I KNOW HE WILL TAKE CARE OF THINGS THAT NEED TAKEN CARE OF. TO HELP THINGS ALONG I RENTED A ROOM FOR A MONTH AND LEFT MY RESEARCH THERE. I USED THE MOST RECENT CARD SO SURE HE WILL FIGURE IT OUT. ALSO LEFT MY JOURNAL WHERE IT COULD BE FOUND. FUCK. THAT JOURNAL HAS BEEN WITH ME SINCE A LITTLE AFTER MARY DIED. LEAVING IT THERE WAS ALOMST AS BAD AS THE NEED TO GET OUT AND LET THINGS RUN THEIR NATURAL COURSE.

GOT THIS LAPTOP FOR RESEARCH. HANDY THING BUT SPAWN OF HELL SOMETIMES. I HAVE TO GET UP AND MOVE AROUND EVERY NOW AND AGAIN CUZ FUCKING THING SEEMS SO SLOW. STILL BETTER THAN ONLY READING NEWSPAPERS. HANDY FOR FINDING JOBS. RAN ACROSS THIS ONLINE JOURNAL THING AND THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GOOD THING TO KEEP MY THOUGHTS IN ORDER. WE'LL SEE HOW THAT GOES.

LAST CELL DIED SOON AFTER I LEFT JERICHO. I BOUGHT ANOTHER BUT HAVE NOT ACTIVATED IT YET. ILL GET IT TRANSFERRED TO THE OLD NUMBER WHEN I DO. BUT DONT WANT TO DO SO FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

RIGHT NOW I'M IN FLAGSTAFF INV. A HAUNTING IN A CEMETERY. PRETTY SURE IT IS A SIMPLE SALT AND BURN BUT STILL INVESTIGATING. 7 TEENS DISAPPEARED OVER THE PAST 6 MONTHS. WENT TO CMTY AND GOT THIS PHOTO:

GHOST

LOOKS LIKE ACTIVITY PROB. CENTERED TOWAREDS BACK FENCE IN FLAGSTAFF CITIZENS CMTY. MORE RESEARCH TOMORROW.
