The seven men in custody in connection with the suspected arson of LeBeau Plantation in Old Arabi apparently were looking for ghosts, according to St. Bernard Parish Sheriff Jimmy Pohlmann. The sheriff said the men had been smoking marijuana and drinking in the vacant house

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

Another haunt falls to trespassing and foolishness. Sad :td:

And sometimes some folks wonder why I'm such a tightarse about trespassing and legality.

Your ad hominem connotes your sciolism. Now that is some funny commentary.

Sad pathetic idiots, who have removed a historical home all for a night of vandalism under the guise of 'ghost hunting'.

I don't think that you are particularly harsh about it rashore, I have often stated, If you can't muster up the courage to ask the property owner for permission to be on their property (ghost hunt, take photos, hunt), you have no business doing it.

More proof that "ghost hunting" is nothing more than LARPING.

Yay.

Just in case anyone cares...

This is what the plantation once looked like:

And just prior to the fire, which as you can see, would be easy enough for anyone to destroy...

That will certainly not help the reputation of ghost hunting. In fact, that's a blow for those who are invested to make honest researches. Some owners might be more reluctant to let a team in for a night at historical locations.

Glad I wasn't looking forward to seeing this place, idiots, now I can't.

I don't like people trespassing on my property, they are usually up to no good.

That was a really nice looking place too..damn fools

least they coulda done was set a crack house on fire looking for ghosts or something productive*


Kelevra Industries World Wide does not support arson in any level despite target*

When you know what a man loves, you know what can kill him

That's where they are. Or still were as of Monday. Not sure if they were able to bond out or not.

Take your pick...
