My name is Kathy Snow however in the Paranormal world I am simply known as katie! My team and I take the paranormal field very seriously and have been up and down the eastern seaboard investigating known and unknown locations. My team consists of all family members giving us the opportunity to work well together with no drama. I am a national as well as internationally published paranormal writer. Our evidence has been shown on My ghost story caught on camera and we work hard within our community to bring awareness and understanding to the field. There are four ordained ministers on the team. After 16 years in the field we no longer do in house investigations as we are out trying to find unknown haunted locations and we consult on cases other teams may have questions on. After founding 3 teams, we have recently relocated and our new team name is Dead Ringer Paranormal. We are proud of the work we do and try to show the community it is a scientific field of study and a lot of work goes into what we all do. We are an old world team meaning we investigate with just what we need, we do not hook up wires and tons of equipment, we believe in studying the paranormal in traditional proven ways. I am excited and proud to have been asked to be a rep for NPS..

ty1Death Ship of the Platte River By Katie Snow
between Torrington and Alcova
Wyoming U.S.A.

If you ever find yourself south of Casper Wyoming during late fall stay clear of the banks of the Platte River. Sightings dating back to 1862 of a phantom ghost ship swirl amongst the residents of this area. Looming out of the fog you see the gray sails, frosted crew and old time ship caressing the waters beckoning you to see its’ corpsly cargo.From a bygone era tales of those who cast their gaze upon it have found their loved ones deceased upon their arrival home or shortly there after.

The legend states that the first sighting was by a trapper Leon Webber. According to records he felt uneasy and a cold chill enveloped him, mere seconds later a ship appeared from out of the shroud of fog. It was that of an old time clipper type ship, with a crew covered in frost surrounding a body lying upon its deck. The crew step aside only to reveal the body in which they were feverishly working over is that of your loved one who upon your arrival home has succumbed to death or quickly there after.

Attempts to photograph the ship never turn out as it usually only shows a photo of solid grey or a white haze surrounded by the fog of the banks of the river.

tyWyoming State Hospital by Katie Snow
831 Wyoming 150, Evanston, WY 82930

In a town that still contains most of its original 1870 buildings lies the Wyoming State Hospital. The only of its kind in the state it still is run
as a mental hospital since it opened her doors in 1887. Containing 230 beds this town has had an odd past which only adds to the questions of who the hanging woman in the window may be.

Eerily enough a sheet hangs in the a window as people report the vision of a young lady who repeatedly shows herself as hanging from a noose. It is also reported that objects move on their own , voices, lights appearing when electric is off, howling, moving rocking chairs and floating lights.

499 W Walnut Street

Started in 1888 but not completed until 1901, Wyoming’s Frontier Prison opened its doors with 104 cells, no water, no electrical components and barely what one would consider heat.

13,500 prisoners walked through its doors over its years and overcrowding was a constant issue. 32 additional cells were added in 1904 and even women were housed until they were transferred to Colorado. Located on Interstate 80. The “Old Pen” was in operation until 1981.

This prison housed the death row inmates and nine were hanged, five sent to the gas chamber and some died of prison house incidents such as riots,beatings,escapes as well as murders. All in all a total of 250 died within its walls.

It is said that the energy of the prison can be felt as negative because of the horrible history which has manifested into what some claim to be paranormal activity such as full body apparitions, cold spots, dis-embodied voices. The prison allows overnight lockdowns as well as tours throughout certain times of the year.
