Strange in Minnesota – Bob Dylan’s Ghost Case Summary

 

Case Summary
The Past The Red Wing Boys’ Correctional Facility was also a mental hospital for the crimminally insane minors incarcerated therein. In a desperate attempt to lower the amount of fights, drugs and brain surgery were utilized. The project was a failure. Due to the record number of violent incidents and a killing spree by one of the prisoners, the facility was closed.
Investigation Three missing paranormal investigations, The Ghost Hunters, had spent the night locked in the prison. Our investigative team searched the prison a few days later and found themselves trapped therein. Things became strange in the prison as the walls dripped with blood and strange mouths appeared in the solitary confinement cells. The investigators witnessed the suicide of groundskeeper, fought off a now insane Ghost Hunter and destroyed a crazed creature in a straight jacket.

A benevolent spirit gave the group advice on how to deal with Bob Dylan’s Ghost. The Ghost of Bob Dylan played his song, The Walls of Red Wing, for the corpses of the remaining two Ghost Hunters as the investigators began their attack. Once the Ghost of Bob Dylan was destroyed, the prison returned to normal and the investigators were free to leave.
