Thanks to Julie of The Spirit Stalkers for submitting
this story and video of what could possibly be a vortex appearing in the
balcony of Morley Music Hall at Lake Erie College. The footage was shot
at 5:34 PM and lasted for eight minutes. The video has been compressed
to just two minutes. There were no windows in the balcony. Julie turned
the camcorder light on about a minute into the recording, but
unfortunately, she didn't look at the LCD screen to see the events
unfolding in real-time. Once the vortex closed, her group recorded
several orbs that appeared in the balcony.
Julie and her group have conducted an extensive
investigation of the hauntings at Lake Erie College. The Spirit Stalkers
previously photographed a possible apparition at College Hall,
click here for more on that. Visit their
clicking here to view more evidence and listen to some EVPs that
they have captured. For more on the Morley Music Hall haunting, see the
Lake County page of our Hauntings Section.
Julie's story and the video she submitted are below. If you have any

IN MEMORY OF JULIET MARIE KELLER (06/14/1975 -
Dave and I contacted you in the
past on the haunting at Lake Erie College, upon our investigation with
the College, we were also studying Morley Music Hall. While at this
present time we are still unsure why hauntings are present at the Music
Hall (we have found no records why there would be any reason of a
haunting associated with the music hall) we have found it to be beyond
extremely active. We have done quite an extensive investigation, 4
months worth, when we were preparing for a lecture and an overnight
ghost tour last October with the college. We obtained video footage of
what we believe to be the first VORTEX caught on video appearing in the
balcony of Morley Music Hall. It lasts for 8 minutes and then closes. We
do have it compressed into a file down to 2 minutes. I do have to
mention that there were no windows in the balcony, the footage was taken
at 5:34 p.m. I did happen to turn on the camera light about a minute
into the taping (too bad I didn't look at the LCD screen to see what was
taking place!!!!). You will even see Dave and I walk in front of the
camera and we had no idea what was going on in the balcony. This was
about 25 minutes into taping on an hour tape, ONLY AFTER the vortex
closed we started to get a light show of orbs in the balcony. They began
to appear two minutes after it closed. We were always given free roam of
the music hall and had security lock us in.
Thanks to Suzy B. for sending in her experiences at
Morley Music Hall. She and other students believe the building is
haunted and have heard screams during pep band practice. Suzy has also
heard the same tune being played on a piano when no one else was around.
Hi. I am a student here at Lake
Erie College and I just wanted to definitely agree with you about Morley
Music Hall. We students believe that it's Mrs. Morley that's there. From
a personal experience, I go down there to the basement to practice my
tuba in the practice room. I close the door and everything, but every
time I am down there, no one is down there with me or in any part of the
building. And just about every time I hear someone playing the piano and
it's always the same tune. Another time, the pep band likes to practice
in the music hall and every time and it's only when the one boy decides
to show up for practice, we hear like a screaming and it's really loud.
Sometimes it's multiple screams or sometimes just one. I just thought I
would share my experience.
