Evil Intentions Ghost Tours
Located in Elgin's industrial section stands the abandoned home of Elgin Casket Company. This once proud building has been witness to murder, grisly discoveries, cult activities, and unexplained occurrences, and a dark legacy has emerged from its sordid history. Visitors still regularly report encounters with some of the former residents that now roam the decayed hallways and abandoned factory floors.
Join us as we spend an evening investigating the old factory and attempt to make contact with the spirits that reside within. Learn about the building's history and true stories of the macabre, and then conduct an actual investigation with the latest in ghost hunting technology. The restless spirits inside the old Elgin Casket Company are waiting for you.
Groups of mysterious figures dressed in cloaks are sighted around the now abandoned factory. It is later discovered that cult activity was a regular occurrence.
Report of a cyanide spill. The city is forced to close the river. Elgin Casket Co. is fined for endangering the lives of citizens.

Two escapees from the nearby mental institution are sighted on the factory grounds, but are never found.
After only one month in operation, five mutilated bodies are found in the basement storage. This crime is never solved.

Walking through the front part of the building and we catch a voice that seems to say "Get out."
In This Room
After asking a cast member where they were hit, a faint voice what sounds like "in this room," although it wasn't the same room.
While a cast member is interviewed, a male voice says "there is no way out of here, this is bullshit!" (beep is the EMF detector), followed by a female voice saying "this is boring."
In the large open room while being silent, a voice is caught saying "Oh yeah."
After EMF went off and went to zero, a loud voice near the voice recorder says "Yeaaa."
During an active spirit box session, we asked if one of our resident spirits was around, and an evp response was capture.
Yes part 2
Later in that same session, we asked the spirits if we should stay, and the spirit box captured a response.
Male Voice and Whispering
Taken during a spirit box session. We can't make out what the voices are saying. This EVP did not come through the spirit box, but was captured by the voice recorder.
