  Look, me and my friend Eric who live in this town have had a spirit box session at that school, and we have heard a child's laugh and scream and a teacher screaming. After that we saw the metal basketball hoop move like someone threw a ball, playing basket ball. That school is haunted. I swear.

I live in De Soto. My house is down the street from the school. During the Tri-State tornado of '25 this house was wiped too, and as a result the house is haunted. I lived here for years off and on, have seen and felt stuff heard stuff. Cleansing the house doesn't work because stuff keeps happening. It all comes from one room, namely the furnace room in the basement. When I was a teenager I lived down there in the spare room. The wall between that and the furnace room is paneling.

There was a hole from a nail; anyway whatever was in there would turn the light on. I was used to it, so I'd ignore it. The next day I'd turn it off, and the following night it would turn back on. I'd get a very uneasy feeling as well as feel a presence in the doorway. It would be followed by a creepy sound like a whisper or a shadow on the wall. Also all our animals at the time (and today) REFUSE to set foot in that basement. That's all I'm going to add, but that is by far the most mild story I have about this place .

I used to go to Desoto Grade school. I went from kindergarten to 6th grade. Everyone that went to Desoto knew that every year they had a Halloween party type thing at the school. Well the night before Halloween my sister and I stayed after to help set up. We had never experienced anything scary, so we didn't have a problem with staying to wait for our mom. After about 5 minutes we went back inside because it was cold. It was dark, so I shined my phone in around, and my sisters started screaming. I didn't see anything, but when we got home she told me she saw a little girl in tattered clothes sitting in the corner with something on her lap.
