The Open Casket

Welcome to The Open Casket! In this section we'll be discussing locations and experiences that we encounter while investigating.

Location: Willow's Weep


While most of the time the NS team gets calls about paranormal problems from the public, sometimes we get calls to investigate for legitamacy of a claim. This one of those cases. We got a call from Dave Spinks about a home that he had purchased in Indiana named Willow's Weep. He knew that the NS team was known for their respect and honesty when it came to an invesigation. He inquired if we would be interested in possibly making a trek to indiana to visit this home to see what kind of evidence we could aquire. So in August of 2018 we made that trip.


The house was not inviting at all. Once we arrived at the property you could feel the eyes looking at you from the vacant home. It was an unusual structure with windows built onto the corners. The floorboards were in poor shape. You could tell that the love had left with the last occupants.


The stories tell of a tree that is cursed in the front yard, a man partialy eaten by pigs, drug overdosed suicides and a missing little girl that seemed to be last seen there. You can google Willow's Weep and read the stories if you want, there are plenty. What we came to do was investigate the claims that there was possible entities that were residing in the home. Using names of past residents and trigger objects to stir up paranormal activity to obtain the proof that souls are trapped in the Willow's Weep.


These are some pictures of the Willow's Weep that we collected.

Octagon Hall

Would you spend the night in a haunted house?

  The Octagon Hall (visit the hall's website for more info) has been documented as being haunted for many of years by the people who lived there, paranormal investigators, and vistors from all over the world. You can join in on the hunt for the paranormal. You'd be joined by a group of paranormal investigators with all the equipment needed. The ghosts, well we'll just see what happens.

  Already a paranormal team and want to invesitgate the Octagon Hall, then step right up and book a night at the hall, the residents are waiting for you.
