TAPS Concludes Investigation at Fort Knox in Maine

The TAPS team has concluded their investigation of Fort Knox in Maine and presented their findings to the Executive Director of Friends of Fort Knox earlier today. As you may remember, it was reported on January 31st that the Ghost Hunters would be investigating the fort in early February. The article notes that filming began on February 6th with a tour of the location and the team's first night of investigating. They returned on the 7th and the production crew also conducted interviews and filmed exterior shots on the 8th and 9th. Although the article says Jason & Grant presented their findings today (the 11th), a photo suggests that Jason wasn't present and Amy took his place. Patrick Powell, the producer, is quoted as saying the episode will air "in late March or April".
The Friends of Fort Knox, working in partnership with the Maine Department of Conservation’s Bureau of Parks and Lands, has announced that the SyFy Channel’s "Ghost Hunters" TV program has concluded its paranormal investigation of the State Historic site.
The investigation and filming began late Feb. 6 when the 19-member production crew arrived at Fort Knox. Leon Seymour, Friends of Fort Knox executive director, provided the investigators a tour of the site and recounted visitor reports of paranormal experiences. After the initial tour and overview, SyFy "Ghost Hunters" stars Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson began their investigation of the fort. Their efforts extended to approximately 3:30 a.m.
The investigation continued the evening of Feb. 7 into the following morning amidst brief snow showers. On the afternoon of Feb. 8, the "Ghost Hunters" production company interviewed individuals who had reported as having a paranormal experience at the fort to the Friends. One of those interviewed by the crew was local radio personality Sky Taylor, who reported hearing various sounds and even seeing an apparition. On Feb. 9, Bureau of Parks and Lands Historic Site Specialist Tom Desjardin provided the production company with a brief history of Fort Knox. The "Ghost Hunters" film crew spent the rest of the day shooting exterior shots of the fort from various locations and some shots of the town of Prospect.
