The majority of reports mainly center on paranormal activities that affect night watchmen, including unexplainable footsteps that emerge at night in the office area. Sometimes, a man’s deep voice is heard coming from the hallway. When no one else is supposed to be in the building, the sounds of people talking have been heard from the vents. The security desk located at the entrance lobby is a supposed haunting spot for an African American female ghost who wears a white dress.
