A Biloxi-based group of ghost hunters have been denied a request to look for spirits at a Harrison County cemetery.

Supervisors on Monday refused to allow members of Shadowz Paranormal Investigations to check a county-run graveyard for ghosts.

Supervisor Marlin Ladner said he was “reluctant” to allow the group to wander around the graveyard at night.

“I don’t know how the community would feel about these people walking around where some of their loved ones are buried,” Ladner said.

Julie Sinclair, a hunter in training, said residents living near the county graveyard had reported seeing and hearing strange things late at night, which led the group to seek approval to study the area.
