Ashley Greco has worked as a master control operator for years and is convinced that the jail system in Hillsborough County Florida boasts a blend of residual and intelligent spirits. She’s experienced them herself and is convinced the noises heard by inmates are much more than just the sound of the facilities settling in the Florida heat.

The Inspiration Behind The Episode


While talking about Phantom History House during an Oddities Expo in Tampa, Ashley Greco approached me at our booth and asked if I knew that the jails in the county were haunted. When I admitted that I didn’t know much about the active jails, she began to tell me stories, and I was immediately interested in learning more!

A week or so later, Ashley and I connected officially on a call to talk about her experiences as a member of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. Her stories were incredible, and I’m so excited to get to share some of them with you here. She has seen spirits, heard them walking through the building and is a paranormal enthusiast when she’s not on the clock.

Her knowledge of history also impressed me and I was excited to learn about not only the jails that are still active in this part of Florida, but about the Morgan Street Jail, which closed some time back but still has haunting tales to share.

I hope you enjoy this episode highlighting our conversation as much as I enjoyed creating it.
