The Attala County Jail is located in Kosciusko,
Mississippi. It was erected in 1957 and was nicknamed the
halfway Jail. It is one of the oldest Jail facilities in the
state on Mississippi.
One of the most harrowing
stories is that a mobile electric chair was brought in to
carry out executions. Many locals explained that at 11:45pm
you would wear the generator fire up at a might higher speed
and by 12:01am it would return to normal speed.
Nicknamed the halfway Jail as Federal Agents who were
transporting prisoners would stop here for the night, before
reaching their final destinations.
Attala Jail was
known for its lunacy cell, which was frequently used the
whole jail could accommodate up to 24 prisoners.
October 2016, the key was turned, the jail doors were
closed, the last paper was left on the desk and its never
been re-opened until now, the residual energy still lingers
like it closed yesterday.
The haunted encounters
started shortly after 1957, when a former prisoner took
their own life, with many others following the same path.
From this moment on and until the day it closed the
paranormal stories have flowed out from the Jail and into
the local community. The Jail once standing providentially
in this small town, now only has the haunted reputation that
it acquired from when it was built in 1957.
Is it the
many prisoners who died here whos energy still lingers
through the walls and halls?
Many sheriffs past and
present can recall the ghostly happenings here, and many
have said that they were never alone whilst working in the
prison cells, one has even recalled seeing a male spirit
walk past the desk and into the dayroom, the officer grabbed
his service weapon, called for back up and went it. No-one
was there after further investigation.
Is this a
former correctional officer who still haunts this jail?
What or Who still lingers these dark cells? Are you
brave enough to spend time alone in the lunacy cell?
