Screaming Ghost Footage in Wingate Hotel Illinois | The story here is that this video supposedly comes from security camera footage of a Sep. 14, 2003 paranormal event at a Wingate Hotel in Illinois. Though it wasn’t until Sep 2012 that it was posted on YouTube.
Screaming was heard coming from room 209. But no one was checked into that room. So some guy named John (a security guard?) is sent to investigate. He enters the room and reports that the carpet has been ripped up, the shower is on, and all the furniture is turned upside down. But the room is empty! Also, as John enters the room, a ghostly figure can be seen exiting it.
Of course, we actually see very little of anything in the video, except for the ghostly image, which could be easily faked. We also hear the audio track. But again, that could easily be faked.
The biggest problem, however, is that it’s apparently impossible for anyone to identify exactly which Wingate Hotel in Illinois this occurred at. The poster of the video explains that, “Due to legal matters, I am not allowed to say any more information regarding the exact location of this hotel. Please stop asking. Thank you!”
Following the rule that information is only as good as its source, this video has no identifiable source at all. So that suggests…However, by googling “Room 209 Wingate Hotel” I found this recent negative review posted by someone who stayed in Room 209:
Carpet in room (209) was wet, foot stool was left on top of the cair, empty shampoo bottle from previous guest was still in the shower, a Coors Lite beer from the previous guest was found in the fridge.
It was Room 209 in a Wingate in Saskatchewan. But maybe the ghost is on the move! Watch the scary video of Wingate Hotel Room 209 in Illinois:
