Eastern State Penitentiary Darkness Radio Event July 2012

The Event:
The event itself kicked off with a charity auction to raise money for Eastern State. The usual suspects were on hand along with Aaron Goodwin and Billy Tolley of Ghost Adventures. Dave Schrader and company did an amazing job organizing this event. It was fun, it was informative, it was thought provoking and we had two amazing nights to investigate this infamous and foreboding structure!
The History:
Opened in 1829, Eastern State was built on the site of the old Walnut Street Jail, which had opened in 1776. Eastern State sought to change the behavior of inmates through "confinement in solitude with labor". While this turned out to be a rather cruel and unusual form of punishment, this system of confinement was not abolished until 1913.
At the time it was built, the Penitentiary was one of the most expensive buildings in the country. Its famous wagon-wheel floor plan has been copied hundreds of times over.
Some of America's most notorious criminals were held in the Penitentiary's vaulted, sky-lit cells, including Al Capone. Oddly enough, Capone claimed to be haunted by the ghost of one of his victims that was gunned down in the infamous St Valentines Day massacre. A recreation of his cell is on view today.
Eastern State Penitentiary was abandoned in 1971. It has been open to the public since the early 1990s. Preservation of this historic location is ongoing.

The Investigation:
While we spent a good deal of time investigating with some of the most amazing people in the paranormal field, I would have to say that the most compelling evidence we captured came out of an ITC session hosted by Billy Tolley in cell block 7.
As you will see, it quickly became apparent that we were communicating with one of Eastern States notorious female residents. What happens at the end of the session just about left me speechless!
