The R.I.P. Files: The Mad Major (Oaklands Mansion, Laurel, Maryland) (2012)
The most famous inhabitant of Oaklands Mansion was Major Contee, who was known for his outrageous behavior, and so named the Mad Major. Using hypnosis, Jim puts Sara into a trance that results in enhanced psychic senses and leads directly to the discovery of a previously unknown spirit on the second floor. When told about the incident later, the owner of Oaklands Mansion immediately recognizes his great aunt as the spirit who appeared to Sara.
Through one lively encounter and several clear EVPs, Major Richard Contee (the “Mad Major”) proves that he’s still in command at Oaklands Mansion. Additional EVPs confirm the rumors of a woman and a child on the premises and provide intriguing clues about the possible identity of the young boy that may explain the reason behind the hauntings at Oaklands Mansion.
