Amateur ghost hunter Matthew Doherty said he heard swirling noises and faint screams on the grounds of Danvers State Hospital as he was investigating claims the old asylum is haunted.
Then he heard his Miranda rights.
Doherty, 33, of 70 Martin Ave. and two friends were charged over the weekend with trespassing on the grounds.
Danvers is haunted by paranormal enthusiasts, if not by ghosts. Since the hospital closed in 1991, scores have visited the Victorian Gothic building. At least 20 unauthorized visitors have been arrested this year alone.
Sgt. Robert Bettencourt said the site’s popularity was fueled by Internet rumors and the 2001 release of “Session 9,” a film about a haunted hospital that was shot at the site. The film’s star, David Caruso, has said he saw something unexplainable pass by a hospital window during the shoot. He called Danvers “the scariest building in America.”
