Modern Language Arts Building is located on the University of
Arizona's campus, in Tucson, Arizona. It has a language lab, classrooms,
The Modern Language Arts Building
was built in 1965 on land where a violent murder of a co-ed happened
decades ago. A young female student was brutally killed, and her body
was thrown down an old well that sat near where the women's athletic
field had been at the time. During the 1965 construction of the building,
her skeletal remains were found by the workers, but they didn't report
their grizzly find because it was feared that a police investigation
would cause a delay in the building's construction schedule.
HISTORY OF MANIFESTATIONS:
The south wing entrance of the building
covers the old well. It is through this entrance that this female ghost
enters the building between 8 p.m. and midnight, to look for her own
skeleton , so she can rest in peace.
1) Her appearances are frequent, and many
describe her as being a restless, confused, young woman, who wears
her black hair pulled straight back, with the part in the middle.
She wears a shawl that is pulled tightly around her shoulders, and
a long, old fashioned skirt from another time period. She is very
delicate apparition with a fixated stare, looking intensely for
her own remains.When other students try to talk to her and try to
help, she quickly covers her face with her shawl and hurries away.
2) Sometimes, she comes into a
classroom to look around, becomes very uncomfortable and scurries
out of the room, hiding her face.
3) Another person reported seeing
her glide down a third floor hallway in this building
4) She has been seen peaking through
the window of the language lab.
Hopefully, some day a competent
medium could hold a rescue seance to try to free this tortured soul
so she could go to the other side. But as of now, this ghost is still
restless and looking to put her spirit and soul together, by haunting
the Modern Language Arts Building.
