When there's something strange, in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters, right? Well, a Montana health employee did just that earlier this year, and now she's paying the price.
An unnamed female employee of the Butte-Silver Bow County Health Department was so convinced that the building was occupied by more than just fellow employees that she enlisted the help of ghost hunter John DeMaury and his team, who she let into the building after-hours one night in August to investigate. The woman had reported strange noises and occurences in a certain part of the building, and DeMaury and his crew set up infrared cameras in an attempt to capture real-life paranormal activity on film.
During his investigation, DeMaury saw and heard for himself some of the unusual sights and sounds, and became convinced that a few former employees who had passed away were trying to communicate with the staff. But the real story here is what happened a few days later.
Another employee in the office found one of the infrared cameras and assumed that someone had planted it there to spy on the workers, so she turned it over to police. But the police found no evidence of anything out of the ordinary on the camera's SD card, and the woman who hired the ghost hunters was reprimanded for her actions. "The public gives trust in us and we need to take that seriously," said the health department's chief executive. "Setting up cameras in public buildings to catch paranormal activity I don't think is gaining the public's trust."
Let this be a lesson - calling Ghostbusters isn't always the best course of action, despite what we've all been led to believe!
