Had enough yet, white people?
A group of Mississippi ghost hunters made a scary discovery
Sunday, when they were snooping around near a shuttered hospital
and came upon the remains of a woman who had been abducted from
her home, police said.
The body of Wilson was found in a wooded area near Kuhn Memorial
Hospital, which has been a favorite haunt of ghost hunters
because of the dark maze of rooms and its reputation as a hotbed
of paranormal activity. The unidentified ghost hunters called
police after finding a body that was determined by the state
Crime Lab in Jackson to be that 69-year-old Sharen Wilson, who
disappeared the day before.

"They stumbled upon the body, and they took off and reported it
to the Warren County sheriffs office," Vicksburg Police Chief
Walter Armstrong said.
Police said they have two Vicksburg men in custody who were
stopped Sunday morning in Leland for reckless driving in
Wilsons SUV, a 2012 Nissan Murano.
Akeem McCloud, 20, who was driving the vehicle, was being held
Monday in Leland. His uncle, Raphael McCloud, 33, was the
passenger in the SUV and was being held Monday in Vicksburg. The
men were not immediately charged, but an investigation continued.
Police said the McClouds told authorities they had put Wilson
out on the side of the road after robbing her home and
kidnapping her on Saturday.
Police said it appeared there had been a disturbance at Wilsons
home, and her death is being investigated as a homicide. She was
last seen around 9 p.m. Saturday and was reported missing at
noon the following day.
Armstrong told The Clarion-Ledger that Wilson appeared to have
trauma to her head. Witnesses said the woman's body was found
outside the hospital but blood traces indicated she had been
inside, according to the newspaper.
David Childers, co-founder of the Mississippi Paranormal
Research Institute, was not among the ghost hunters who found
the body, but told the Clarion-Ledger he is very familiar with
Kuhn Hospital, and has conducted many ghost hunts there through
the years. He said from what he saw inside Kuhn on Monday, it
appears at one point Wilson was inside the hospital and was
"Kuhn Hospital has a lot of places inside and out that would be
an ideal spot to place a body. In my opinion they should tear it
down," Childers told the paper. "It's condemned and is open for
things like this to happen. "It's an unsafe environment, there
are open elevator shafts, black mold, asbestos, and debris, and
people ought to stay away from that place."
"Some spirits just need to be left alone," he said.
