Pocatello: High School

Story 1:The story is that a girl committed suicide somewhere around the 40's or 50's. The girl hung herself from a locker on the top floor of the school. The girl had always worn a particular perfume, and after her death, the smell of perfume was still present in her locker. It began to disturb students so much that the administration removed the locker and put in a new one. Sometimes on quiet nights in the school, janitors can still get a strong hint of her perfume.

Story 2:Late at night, people in the south building can sometimes hear sounds of a piano playing in the auditorium and upon investigation, nobody can be found in the auditorium.

Story 3:Another mystery of Pocatello High involves a human skeleton that was once used for science classes before plastic skeletons were used. When the school bought some new skeletons and put the old skeleton away, bones of the old skeleton started appearing in strange places. Some teachers find remains of the old skeleton tucked back in their rooms and in their classroom closet.

Story 4:Another mystery of Pocatello High is an unexplained alarm that goes off around midnight. It only lasts for about 30 seconds. It is located near the old gymnasium. Janitors and teachers have unsuccessfully pinpointed the origination of the alarm.

Story 5:This last summer (summer of 2009) My friend, her twin, her twin\'s friend, my friend\'s mom and I were going around looking at all three of the high schools. The day we visited Poky was one of the creepiest days of my summer vacation. We all slowly walked around the buildings at first. My friend and I had heard many ghost stories of PHS, which made us REALLY want to go visit it. When we finally found the door that would allow us in, we walked in the main building. It was chilly in there, and their were painters re-painting the wall. They welcomed us as we began our little field trip. Wow, just looking at all of the pictures on the walls of former students, made my friend and I kind of feel an un-normal feeling. We slowly made our way through the hallways looking around for anything unusual. We have heard the stories of the girl who hung herself and many of the others before, which now we believe are true. We walked back to the main entrance, and the radio that the painters had playing (painters took a break or something and left the radio playing) started switching stations rapidly which isn't very normal we thought. One thing we did notice for sure is at the same time all of us, including my friends mom, started feeling as if someone was squeezing our heads right on our temples really hard, same around our necks except around our necks, it was like someone with a cold hand was doing it. "Do you feel that?" I asked. "What the squeezing?" my friend said. "Yes." as we got closer to the top floor, I began to feel as if I couldn't breathe very well, and we all had really bad head aches.

Another paranormal-ish thing that happened was about a year or two ago. My mom and I were going to pick up my dad, we stopped in front of PHS. "Do you see that?" my mom asked me. I then looked up and in the library saw a boy who looked dead but beaten really bad.
