Tale of the haunted pizza place

When you think of places that are haunted you would likely imagine old houses, maybe hospitals, or perhaps hotels and motels. But what about pizza places? If the following video is to be believed then Stocky's Pizza, a restaurant in Haughton, Louisiana is haunted by something that likes to mess with one employee, Lori Evans, in particular. The story comes via a local radio station, Kiss Country 93.7. From the original article entitled "Is Stocky's Pizza Haunted? Shocking Surveillance Footage Points to Paranormal Activity [VIDEO]":

Many folks believe in ghosts, but few can say they’ve caught evidence of a haunting on video. Stocky’s Pizza employee Lori Evans says there’s not only a ghost haunting the recently opened Haughton, Louisiana pizzeria, but that it’s far from friendly. And she has some unnerving surveillance camera footage to prove it.
Last Saturday morning, Evans arrived at Stocky’s to find the ice scoop in the middle of the kitchen floor. When the staff left the night before, it was placed on top of the ice machine where it’s normally kept.

The discovery was the proverbial “straw that broke the camel’s back,” Evans tells Kiss Country.
A number of similarly eerie incidents prior to that morning prompted her to scour the surveillance video to see just what was going on. What she discovered will make you shiver.
The following video was recorded on July 14 at a little after 6 a.m. — hours before the arrival of any of the staffers. Nobody was in the pizzeria at the time, confirms Evans.
Here in all of it's glory is the video.

Personally I've watched this surveillance footage more than a few times and I can't really make anything out. Maybe you can see what it is that is supposed to be taking place and I would certainly appreciate any input or opinions. Regardless of what is or isn't happening in the video, the article goes into more detail about some other experiences that Lori Evans has a had at Stocky's Pizza.

The first thing that happened was when I was standing in the kitchen area at the dough roller working. All of a sudden a bottle of tobasco sauce hit me in the back then landed on the ground. I looked back because the bottle had been on top of the microwave. A server who was in the dining area actually saw it happen and we were both freaked out because it flew across room as opposed to just falling from its spot! We started wondering at that point. The tobasco sauce has been mysteriously thrown several times and busted on one occasion! Another time was when we were working and heard a loud crash in the back hall. When we went to see what it was, there was a broom and a dust pan both on the floor. They “snap” into a holder on the wall so they are never on the floor. They’d been hanging there fine all day with no problems and snap into separate holders, yet both fell???? The motion sensors have gone off twice and the alarm company has called the owner to come out and check; to find nothing. Several of us have actually “felt” a presence and had the hair stand up on our arms/neck. When I came in that morning and found those on the floor, so far from their spot, I knew it was time to check it out on tape and we finally found evidence of activity!

Follow this link for the original article from Kiss Country 93.7. I'm not too sure what to make of Evans' account. It definitely isn't anything out of the ordinary (ha!) as far as “haunted” places go. Although the location in this case is a bit unusual, I suppose anywhere can truly end up haunted. As a kind of post script to this story, in the comments section below this article Lori Evans states that a ghost researcher/paranormal investigator has gotten in touch with her in order to set up an after hours investigation. Hopefully some more information will come out of this about what's going on. As always be sure to check out the original link for the full article and be sure to let me know what you think in the comments below. That's all I have for now and suddenly I'm craving some pizza, so if you please excuse me I've gotta get my 'za on!
