Gooch’s Grill attracts patrons with spirits on tap and consistently good food. Oh, the aroma of burgers and fries! Gooch’s patrons may not know that paranormal activity permeates the bar after closing time - in the form of a restless female spirit. She doesn’t have a name associated with her yet. She is simply referred to as “Gooch’s Ghost”. She has caught the attention of employees of the bar for many years.
Recently, she attracted the attention of local ghost hunters.
The Southern Paranormal Investigational Research in Tucson (S.P.I.R.i.T.S.), called on Gooch’s Ghost several weeks ago. They conducted an investigation at Gooch’s after closing time. S.P.I.R.i.T.S. recorded a couple of interesting EVPs during their investigation. An EVP, of course, is Electric Voice Phenomena. An EVP is thought to be the voice of a spirit captured on a recording device. In this case, the voice was captured via video camera audio. The evidence S.P.I.R.i.T.S. captured of the spirit is posted to YouTube.
They captured one EVP where they asked if the ghost wants them to leave. She said yes. So, I think she wasn’t too receptive about receiving any callers on that particular evening.
