Burlington County Prison in New Jersey is one of the most haunted Jails. Are you brave enough to enter this haunted jail?
Burlington County Prison Museum has a dark and daunting past that eerily calls out to the living to reveal its secrets. These spirits have lured in several eager paranormal investigators, reporters and programs such as the Syfy Channel’s, Ghost Hunters and has been featured on Weird NJ .
Burlington County Prison saw more than a few public hangings since its founding in 1811 and has also been home to several notorious inmates including Albert De-Salvo, who was later known as “The Boston Strangler.” Perhaps his tormented spirit is why so many guests feel that they are being choked when investigating the dungeons.
One of the most active and prominent spirits at Burlington County Prison is Joel Clough. The 29-year-old refused to take “no” for an answer when he proposed to his lover. Unfortunately for her, Clough’s revenge took place in the form of her brutal murder. Several guests and staff members have captured EVPs from an unknown man referring to himself only as Joel.
The experienced and captured paranormal here will send a shiver down your spine. Full blown apparitions are often seen wondering these very dark halls, and EVP’s captured here will show you how intelligent the spirits that reside here still are and how their interactions with the living are formidable.
It’s a daily occurrence to hear cell doors slamming, disembodied voices coming from the top floor, as well as seeing shadow figures disappearing into walls.
Will you be brave enough to venture off into the prison for a lone vigil?
