Location Description and History
On the urgent request of the gang, and encouraged by a generous tip, two firemen retrieved their heavy luggage. It was later discovered that the bags contained a small arsenal and $23,816 in cash. Later these astute firemen recognized the gang in true detective magazine. A stakeout ensued and they were captured at a house on North Second Ave in the space of five hours, without firing a single shot, the police of small town Tucson had done what the combined forces of several states and the fbi had tried so long to do. When captured, dillinger simply muttered, "well, I'll be damned".
One of the rooms in the hotel is haunted by a man who had a heart attack and died. He has been seen looking out of the window. Room 242 is known as the Suicide Room, a name given to it a few years ago, when a troubled woman shot herself in the bathroom after a standoff with the police and a SWAT team. People staying in this room hear strange noises that are quite creepy and they often have nightmares.
The ghost of this woman has also been seen in the bathroom and in the hallway outside of her room.
Everyone met at the hotel at noon. The hotel is creaky, old and spooky. During our investigation it seemed like a train roared past every five minutes, making the hunt more difficult. We immediately moved up to the top floor and worked our way down. The only area where we found anything of interest was Room 242.
Room 242 is quite interesting for several reasons. first of all there is still evidence of the suicide. If you look into the room's closet, you can see the bullet hole in the upper left side. Apparently, the woman was in the bathroom when she shot herself in the head. the bullet passed through the wall and into the next area, the closet.
Secondly, we acquired an interesting D/C electromagnetic field near the doorway. Photographs taken during this event have a "mist-like" structure in them as well as a few "orbs".
