    Honestly, *John Ryan may very well have a lot to haunt about,* if any of this is truly real. The charge of "crimes against nature" essentially dealt with sexual stuff that we consider normal by today's standards. Sure, for all we know, *he could have been into some really creepy stuff... but it's equally as likely that he was sent to PRISON for (a) being gay, (b) being intimate outside of marriage, or (c) "getting off" without a partner.* If any of those last few are the case... MAN, would I be an angry ghost, too.

    Maybe the gaurds in the towr keep the prisoners from escaping after death so basicly the gaurds will never be at peace because theyer job is never finished and the prisoners will never finsish theyer business on earth because they are trapped and that is why prisons are always haunted because the gaurds still wana do theyer job

    you guys do know that if you actually want to see, or hear anything, you have to go these places on the anniversary of when the event happened, as sightings are rare because of this, so if you can do more research for your future videos, I mean you go to all this time and expense, but perhaps don't go when the timing is right. Many sightings are just imprints, with the souls who were participants long gone.

    she pulled his heart out because she said he was a cold person, but what no one seems to realize is that your heart is just a vessel, your SOUL is the real you, and it is your soul that has all the feelings, good or bad.

    Seriously? Are these videos a jab to some extent? Why not just stick with going to these places and share the facts. Something you are great at. The desire you have to communicate is outweighs by the sarcasm and lack of seriousness needed when trying to communicate. Calm, quiet, PATIENT and definitely not insulting. Have you ever watched these videos when you’ve completed the entire video? I apologize but I am stunned and even a bit frustrated you do not seem to be taking it seriously and realize what you are actually trying to do. Time limits? It appears neither of you have any education into the spirit world to allow the best outcome possible. And I’m positive you have the talent and ability. But not this way..Unless Im not getting it, please explain..Ive never ever seen anyone interested in the paranormal go about communicating the way do. Actually giving time limits? Do you hear yourself? They are spirits in the afterlife for Gods sake. That is if you are 100% honest to God really wanting to connect. Yes you are lucky for the things you’ve heard but gosh. Slow down talk quieter, in fact, talk LESS and just listen. You aren’t even giving them time to gain the energy they need to even begin to attempt to verbalize through the energy they must access to “Speak”. Neither of you clearly must have never gone on a true ghost hunting mission/trip. I have never seen something like and wondering if it’s some sort of joke???

    Sorry, can we go back to the heart do you RIP someone heart out LITERALLY? you can't just "KALI-MA!" it out! you gotta get through the ribcage..and idk if you've ever fallen on your chest or been hit on your chest etc...but that shits pretty hardy (for good reason), you can't just punch a hole and and grab the heart like you're batman from the arkham games.
