The past two stories were the only strange things that took place at warehouse one and nothing paranormal ever happened at warehouse two that I can
recall. Warehouse two, though, was the site of two of the worst accidents that occurred while I worked for the company. The tip of a man's finger was
severed when a truck driver stepped on the dock leveler he was operating and a beverage contractor's leg was crushed when the vending machine he was
delivering fell onto him.
Warehouse three was by far the most haunted, and is probably one of the most paranormally active places I have ever been to. I began working at
warehouse three while it was still under construction. I spoke to some of the contractors who stated they were instructed to keep a look out for
skeletons, bone fragments and other relics as a small cemetery was once located near the northeastern section of the property. I did some research and
indeed, a cemetery that dated to 1803 once occupied that section of land. There were several known burials, all of them young children. The records
stated the cemetery had been removed, but I was unable to find any other information. The warehouse proper was not built atop this section, but the
company now owned the land. Once the construction was complete, the building sat empty for almost two years while programmers worked on the software
to run the building. Security, maintenance and some IT guys were the only people in the building during that time.
Almost every security officer who worked in warehouse three had paranormal experiences of their own; some of them were even hard-core skeptics until
then. One of them was an older gentleman who had recently come aboard as a third shift security officer. I told him of some of the experiences that I
and others had there (I'll tell those later) and he didn't believe a word of it. A month or so later he approached me and said he believed me now.
While walking out to his vehicle to grab his lunch, he heard a female voice call from the break patio, "Hey security, can you open this door for
me?" He said "sure," and turned to unlock the door as requested, but no one was there. This event alone didn't convince him.
We used to have huge warehouse sales at the building to get rid of overstock and returned merchandise. One night after one of those sales, this same
gentleman was inspecting fire extinguishers when he heard a baby begin to cry. It sounded like the crying was coming from a restroom area and he
thought someone had lost their child during the sale. He rushed over to the restroom and the crying stopped as he approached. He checked both the
men's and women's restrooms and a cleaning closet to find nothing. He checked around the rest of the mezzanine he was on; nothing. So he decided to
finish up his inspections and as he was checking the last extinguisher, the crying started coming from the restroom area again. He said that he went
back to the command post as quick as he could! These two events combined were enough for him to believe maybe there was something to all the
More to come later. I really do have enough stories about this place to fill a book, but I figured I'd post them here for everyone to enjoy for free.
