Apparent evidence of the spirits of dead employees at haunted Long Leaf Sawmill in Louisiana are captured on this week’s episode of Ghost Brothers on TLC.

Season 2 Episode 2 of the series, featuring TV’s first African-American ghost hunters, sees Dalen Spratt, Juwan Mass, and Marcus Harvey head to the building dubbed the “Mill of Death”.

It lies within the community’s Southern Forest Heritage Museum and was part of a milling operation active from 1893 to 1969.

However, while the mill was open it was plagued by claims of horrific working conditions — and murder.

During the episode the trio capture a photo showing a mysterious object in the same place an apparition was captured in a previous photograph.

They are also shown the location where a 16-year-old employee, the son of a foreman who got him the job, was apparently pushed into a wood chipper by another employee jealous that he was taking other people’s jobs.

Incredibly, as they are being talked through the incident by their guide, Dalen feels a hand reach out and touch him from behind.

At first he thinks one of the other two is having him on, but when they swear it wasn’t them he becomes seriously intrigued by what happened.

Their volunteer guide then tells the trio that the feeling of someone touching you from behind is something that occurs regularly during tours when he and other guides show people around.

During the episode, the trio also try to get a response from an aggressive spirit by acting in the same manner.

And watch the footage below of the moment the mysterious object is captured on camera — in exactly the same place as the apparition was previously seen.
