Synopsis >

Josh Gates from Destination Truth joins the TAPS team as they embark on their next ghost hunting adventure - this time, in the haunted Essex County Jail. The building is one of the oldest public structures in New Jersey, built in 1862 to hold Confederate prisoners of war. It was later turned into a working prison where suicides and violence were rampant. Today, the abandoned building could house something even more menacing - the angry ghosts of dead prisoners. Are there souls still imprisoned in jail? Join the Ghost Hunters as they navigate through a dangerous labyrinth of rusty cells, deserted hallways and eerie underground tunnels to find the answer.
