We received the following report in November 2009

"During the summer a paint ball game was organized for Canadian military members like myself outside of Picton Ontario, The games took place in a series of 3 buildings all connected, which was at one time was an old mental institution. It was leased to us for the paint ball game. The moment we stepped into the main building we felt a sense of being watched, and just a bad feeling of the building. You would never want to be alone in there. One area in particular was the infirmary, which had the names of the deceased on the walls, over 200 names. In this area we had a truly unique experience myself and a few others were in a kind of fight with the opposing team and we had cleared all the opponents in the area, I was looking through a window down the hall when I saw a shadow in the other side of the glass on a door down the hall. Thinking it was a fellow player we all aimed and waited. The door opened and closed right before us and nothing was seen. At night this place is truly scary, but very very active from what Ive heard, and seen."

Our thanks to the witness for writing in, and sharing this with us. According to its wiki entry "Prince Edward Heights or the "Heights" as it was known locally, at its peak was home to approximately 450 mentally handicapped individuals, and employed just as many staff, until deinstitutionalization became the norm and it was forced to close in September 1999." After being essentially abandoned, it served a brief life as the setting for a paint-ball business and has now been purchased for redevelopment into private homes. This location is privately owned, and you would need to obtain permission from the current owner to visit it.
