While visiting California in May, 2019 my fiancé and I went to Alcatraz. We took the morning self-guided tour. While walking down one of the cut through areas between cell blocks, I heard in my right ear very clearly someone say "Hey there". I asked my fiancé if he had heard it and of course he had not. I really felt as though I had a paranormal experience at that moment.
We also went to the Winchester Mystery House, and The Hurst Castle. We took numerous photos looking for orbs and such, but never got a thing on our cameras. We took photos at Alcatraz as well, but nothing showed up there either. When we got home from our vacation I told everyone I knew about my experience. Then basically forgot about it.
Today, in March of 2020, I ran across this website and read where numerous others have heard basically the same thing, in different areas of the prison. Either this is an elaborate hoax by the prison to make people keep coming back, or it was real. I choose to believe it was real. It felt real, and I think your gut tells you the truth 100% of the time. I wish more had happened, but I am grateful for what did. If I was chosen to be spoken to then I guess he liked me!:) I would enjoy taking an evening tour sometime later and see if that would provoke more interaction. I hope I get some feedback from this story. I would like to know if anyone thinks this is just a set up of random headsets to make people think something is really happening to them, or do you think it is in fact a ghost speaking to people and always saying the same thing to all of them? That is the part that makes me a bit skeptical. Would love all the replies I can get about this.
