Haunted worker hires ghost hunting team

A health employee in Montana was reprimanded after hiring a team to investigate her haunted office.
The woman had been so convinced that her office at the Butte-Silver Bow County Health Department was haunted that she made the decision to call in a paranormal investigation team to try to get to the bottom of it.

The nonprofit Butte Paranormal Investigative Team came to the office after hours and set up an infrared camera in an attempt to record the activity on film, but when the camera was spotted by another employee the plan backfired and the police were called in.

"The public gives trust in us and we need to take that seriously, and setting up cameras in public buildings to catch paranormal activity I donít think is gaining the publicís trust," said chief executive Matt Vincent.

Despite the setback, the paranormal team did manage to get something out of the investigation. "She said that a lot of strange things were happening and that she heard strange noises coming out of a certain part of the building," said co-founder John DeMuary.

It was discovered that the office building had been constructed on the site of a house in which a woman had spent the entire 80 years of her life. "We donít know if she passed away in the house," said DeMuary. "Maybe her spirit wasnít able to move on."

As a paranormal investigator I have to speak up. Maybe she should have mention something to her boss, that I agree with. On the other hand- it wasn't spying, it was a ghost hunt. We investigators do it at night because that is when we catch the best stuff. Having the police called on a ghost hunt makes me wonder if there wasn't something the other employee was hiding?

So crazy lady who illegally installs camera because she hears noises in an office building and witnesses regular office behavior = innocent. While employee who finds said suspicious camera and reports it to police = hiding something. I don't understand your logic? And not a personal attack, but if the 'best stuff' ever produced over the history of mankind by thousands of people are highly questionable recordings with no conclusive proof whatsoever - then the ghost hunters are the ones with the problem. Because if something did exist it would have been proven by now. You just c... [More]

Wow, that woman was foolish. I don't think it really matters why a person is putting up a camera, it's generally a no-no to install cameras at the workplace, especially without knowledge or permission of the higher ups.

I thought that is part of the job requirements?

She was probably really doing something else and got caught then figured the ghost angle would make a convincing insanity plea.

*sigh* No. Rational: when confronted with something unexplained, trying to get concrete proof. Thoughtless: not getting permission first, especially when you work for the government. "Crazy person" = thought-terminating cliché. Slap the label "crazy" on anyone and you can dismiss anything. It's the ultimate in intellectual laziness.

Hey, guys, I just thought of something. Can we do a little thought experiment here? Do you think peoples' attitude toward this story would be different if the employee had been male?

Oh, I sure the mayor won't mind. And by the way, If the Police show up to shoot you, tell them I said it's o.k for you to be here..

Irresponsible from an HR perspective. Setting up unauthorized cameras in a workplace is hugely problematic. There is a rational way to approach the paranormal that involves hiring ghost busters?
