Ghost Sighting at Chopper Read's Cell Makes Worldwide News

An unexplained figure has been sighted at Pentridge Prison D Division near Chopper Read's old cell.

The apparition was sighted by a tour group and described as leaning against the wall, with his leg up and smoking a cigarette. When our tour guides and security guard went to investigate, he simply vanished. However, it was unexplained screams coming from the same cell that have made worldwide news headlines.

On Sunday 18th May 2014, Tour Guide Jeremy Kewley (Lantern Ghost Tours) was taking a group of guests through Pentridge Prison as part of Victoria's Law Week when the group heard a spinechilling shout "GET OUT" echo through the corridors.

The sound came from Chopper Read's old cell. Jeremy assumed one of his guests was playing a prank. He was disturbed when he did a head count and found everyone was present.

The group then heard another shout "GET THE F--- OUT". At this point, the group assumed someone had sneaked into the building and was hiding in one of the cells scattered over the building's three floors. The security guard was called and was shocked to find no one hiding in any of the cells.

Staff made the decision to call police, who checked every room and cell in the building but no one could be found.
