The Bull Ring

The Paranormal Source, Inc. recently investigated a location in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards known as the Bull Ring. Founders April & Allen Slaughter happened upon this amazing building while conducting research for April’s upcoming book Ghosthunting Texas and were pleasantly surprised to learn that the Bull Ring has a few ghostly inhabitants of its own. Today, the building serves as a Texas Wine Cellar, a place to grab a beer on-the-go or a cup of Starbucks Coffee. It also features an immense and impressive collection of original Texas art. In the past, the building has been everything from a bar to a speak-easy and gambling hall, as well as a cafe.

While our initial investigation did not provide evidence in the way of video or anomalous photography, several interesting EVPs were captured. A select few of these audio clips are posted below.

Frank’s Box #38 Recording : “Sounds like…Ben Franklin.”
Investigator April asks about an individual in the basement bathroom, and the box provides this response. Keep in mind that the scan rate is continuous and does not have the opportunity to rest on any one station or broadcast for more than a fraction of a second.

Digital Audio Recording (EVP) : “No.”
April asks, “The lights are pretty aren’t they?” A disembodied voice appears to answer.

Digital Audio Recording (EVP) : Unidentifiable Man’s Voice
Investigator Gabriella is asking questions as a gruff-sounding male voice speaks over her. What exactly he is saying it yet to be determined.

Digital Audio Recording (EVP) : “Help me…”
You will also hear strange noises shortly after the voice speaks. Our investigators are heard talking in the background.

Digital Audio Recording (EVP) : “Us.”
Investigator Adam states that he saw movement in the corner, to which a disembodied voice replies.

Frank’s Box #38 Recording : “Lie…You will.”
April assures whomever is present that she will not repeat herself in her questioning. A consistent voice first speaks underneath her on the box.

    That “Lie…You will.” EVP is wierd. I mean, while april is speaking you can hear it talking over her. It sounds like it thinks she is lying. i dont know. its just wierd. but in a cool way.

  2. Megan Ites says:

    The “Us” EVP tickled me because I actually hear the word “Awesome.”

  3. Zach says:

    the unknown mans voice kinda sounds like “no questions answered” ?

  4. LD says:

    The unidentified voice 1)sounds like an older female, and 2) sounds as though she is saying “no questions today.” Which would make sense, given the context. Perhaps she is tired of ghost hunters asking her questions? 😉

  5. LD says:

    Also, the “help” voice sounds identical to the aforementioned older female.

    FROM WHAT I CAN TELL,THE UNIDETIFIED EVP WITH THE GRUFF OLD MANS VOICE,TO ME SOUNDS LIKE IS CLEARLY SAYING”I KILLED MYSELF”

  7. RICK CAPURSO says:

    THE OTHER POSIBILITY IS “I DO IT MYSELF”

  8. Alucard GrimmJow says:

    Listen extremely close on the one thats unidentified and you can hear a man say “And I’ll MAKE you stay.”
