That is an interesting account of the Alwood ghost. Have you ever went back there to investigate the ghost? Thats not the hanging ghost you were
talking about in your Scarecrow Report #2 is it?
I was in a similar place, not for rehab, but it was because I ran away so much when I was younger like I already told you. Back then they could send
kids up to a youth detention center just for running away (with a lot of older, hardened girls who were there because they committed more serious real
crimes)...they can't lock kids up like that now just for running away. Anyway, this first place I went to was called Cascadia Detention Center in
Cascadia was rumoured to have been built on an old Native American tribal land, and was said to be haunted by a murdered Native American ghost. Who
was also hung down in the basement part of the facility. I think I remember hearing that the Cascadia building original use was as some sort of
government enforced housing for Native Americans, also.
There was a strip cell in the basement for kids who got in trouble and broke the rules. Some came back from basement lock-up very white, and scared
saying they had seen the hanging ghost. Fortunately, I never had to go down there.
I am not sure what became of Cascadia. I think the very old spooky building is still there right by the Tacoma freeway. But, it is not a Detention
Center anymore...not sure what they are using it for now...or if the hanging ghost is still there.
Anyway, if you do go back to Alwood to investigate the ghost, I hope you do another Scarecrow Report.
Thanks for telling us about this!! Great account!
