A Montana government employee was reprimanded by her boss for enlisting ghost hunters to catch spirits she believed were haunting her office. The employee invited the Butte Paranormal Investigative Team into her building after hours to set up an infrared camera to monitor any paranormal activity. "The public trusts us and we need to take that seriously," said the county's chief executive Matt Vincent. "Setting up cameras in public buildings to catch paranormal activity I don't think is gaining the public's trust."
