DeRidder, Louisiana is a small city of 9,000 (according to the 2000 census) but is known for its hanging jail. The jail is now 97 years old having been built in 1914.
The double hanging took place on March 9, 1928 some 83 years ago, when Joe Genna and Molton Brasseaux hung for robbing and murdering 45 year old J.J. Brevelle, a taxi driver.
The jail was closed in 1984 which is 27 years ago, but it still is drawing interest from paranormal groups.
LA Spirits is a paranormal group that explored the facility. After setting up their equipment they said they heard footsteps, heard a shower running and could smell pipe smoke.
There is a website that give many details about the jail, the crime which caused the two murderers to be hanged and how they were apprehended.
This website also features a video taken inside the jail and the webmaster is to be commended for their research.
