SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) - Ghost stories - everyone either loves or hates them. Southwest Louisiana is home to tons of ghost stories.
KPLC's Sophia Landry has spent the last month investigating ghost stories throughout the area - even bringing in a ghost hunter to check for spirits at KPLC (Spoiler: No hint of a ghost in the building).
Landry's journeys have led her to interviews with several people who say they've seen ghosts as notable locations.

There is an undeniable strange feeling when you enter the Beauregard Parish Hanging Jail, and given the historic building’s dark past, it’s not surprising that the jailhouse is home to a few spirits.
