A little History about Warehouse 31


Located off of Norcross Drive in St. Augustine, there resides a complex of several large warehouses used for business interests and storage. Everyday, trucks and trains make their way through this area, shipments are sent and delivered, and the houses are filled with goods, but one warehouse sits alone and abandoned with a simple sign that reads STORAGE 3-1. This building is known as Warehouse 31.

It wasn’t always so lonely. Over its history, it has had a number of tenants. Wal-Mart used it to assemble and store furniture until employees complained of constantly feeling ill. Mayflower, Inc. stayed only 6 months, because furniture kept disappearing, blaming it on theft even though there was and still remains tight security.

Warehouse 31 was even a sound studio at one point (Skul/Bonz Studio), where hip-hop and local music tracks for an independent label were recorded, but studio engineers kept discovering strange hissing noises and static during playback—with equipment that was in perfect working order. The studio closed because they were unable to get clean recordings.

The other warehouses thrive and are filled to the seams, but Warehouse 31 never seems to hold on to any business for more than a few months. Some even go so far as to say it is damned and cursed by its original tenants—a strange cult known as the Church of the Light Bearer.

Very little is known about this strange sect. Original members of the church remain anonymous, and the history is sketchy at best. What is known is that in 2001 a charismatic preacher, Parson Al Whist, made his way through the United States preaching a message of hope to followers. His sermons became extremely popular, and his small group of followers began to grow.

Joyce Morrison, who attended one of Parson Whist’s "meetings" in Norcross, Georgia remembers the preacher as "Thin, young, but with this beautiful voice.
It was strange to hear a preacher like that, but it made everything he was saying seem more important."

Morrison also remembered a strange compulsion of Whist’s—"He was always chewing a fresh stick of gum. He’d shove one into his mouth only to politely remove it with a tissue a few moments later."

Morrison, who only attended one meeting of CLB, didn’t go back.

"There was something that wasn’t right. I have been to many sermons, and there was something wrong with what he was saying. He sounded like he was preaching from the Bible, he kept saying, ‘the Father loves you’ or ‘give up yourself to the Father,’ and people were all shouting amen and all, but he never said the name Jesus. Not once. I guess now we know why, don’t we?"

In 2006, Parson Whist, along with a group of his most loyal followers moved to St. Augustine, Florida to break ground and build a new permanent home for the Church of the Light Bearer. The plan was to create the church on donated land.


Whist secured the deed to the land from Ms. Joy Cofield, a window who became a follower of Whist in 2004 when his group was visiting the St. Augustine area. With the land in hand, the group began a fundraising campaign to complete the cost of building this new sanctuary.

Determined to raise the funds needed for this church, Whist rented out space in a nearby warehouse to store the groups’ possessions, as well as using the space as a small office. At least, that is what was explained to the property management company when he signed a lease for one of the newly built units—Storage 3-1.

Within months, workers at other units began to talk about the strange group.

"You would sometimes see them outside sitting in a circle, doing whatever, and you just wanted to keep walking,’ explained Jimmy Zellner, a worker at Storage 3-2. "If you made any sort of eye contact they would come over as a group and start asking you if you were happy and try to get you to come join them for lunch, or a meeting. It was really creepy—the way they didn’t talk about anything else. Me and the rest of the guys just stopped going near that place."

One incident involved two boys who were riding their bikes in the area. They claimed they were screamed at and chased by a man wearing what looked like a Halloween costume. "It was this really dark robe with a hood, with blood all over it. We thought it was fake, but then he kept screaming at us in this weird way, and when he wouldn’t stop, we got out of there as fast as we could."


In February 2007, a story broke in the St. Augustine press that Parson Al Whist was not only renting Warehouse 31, but he and his followers were conducting bizarre worship services in the space. Dark rituals, including sacrifice, were discovered, along with living quarters for Whist and his followers.

By the time authorities were notified to evict the cult, Whist and his followers could not be found. They left behind some truly disturbing writings, graffiti, and evidence of dark masses and occult activity.

Although, they are difficult to locate, and their leader, Whist, seems to have disappeared completely.

Authorities are hard-pressed to find any crime to convict the group. Sgt. Graham Averdick explains "It is a group protected by the Constitution. The only charge we may be able to press upon them is trespassing or vandalism. Neither of which are considered Federal crimes. They can just go anywhere and do this again."

Since the incident, Warehouse 31 has had a string of bad luck. Businesses renting this peculiar property have complained of missing items, increased illness among workers, power outages, even a small fire. As one prior customer stated, "It costs us a lot of money to move out of that warehouse to the one across the street—but nobody complained. If you spent anytime there, you would know what I was talking about."

It seems that whatever resides in Warehouse 31 does not affect everyone—only those with a deep, religious faith tend to feel agitated or unwelcome in the gloomy storehouse.

In early 2009, a youth prayer group visited the warehouse in the hope of cleansing the area. They ran into difficulty when two of their team passed out during a prayer circle, and several encountered spontaneous bleeding.

"We want to go back and try it again with more of us," said Glen Ainsworth, leader of the group. "But, the owners told us that they aren’t covered for that sort of liability. It’s a place that needs the healing light of the Lord real badly." Ainsworth said that he and his followers saw and felt some, "mighty strange things" while they were on the premises. He told of finding dozens of tissues around the site, "Some of them just had chewed gum in ‘em, like someone had just been there."

In addition, animal carcasses, mostly dogs, have been found around the area appearing to be eaten by a large bear or other animal. Some people have even claimed to see a large "beast" around the Warehouse.

"It didn’t look like any animal I had ever seen," stated Jose Guerra, manager of Warehouse 3-3. "It looked like some kind of an alligator, but it had wings. I know that sounds crazy, but I know what I saw. "

As sightings of this "beast" continue to increase, some people wonder if Parson Al Whist has, in fact, returned to the St. Augustine area.

Northwood Warehouse Held "Satanic" Services

Burned red candles illuminated a ghastly scene at an abandoned warehouse in West St. Augustine. Animal skulls littered the floor, a small alter with a bloodstained cloth was draped in the corner, and written on bloody walls one could make out the words "Ave Satanas" [SIC].

"It is very disturbing," claim security guard Daniel Lange who discovered the remains of the mass. "You don’t think something like this could happen here."

Lange investigated the warehouse after he was informed by nearby businesses that people were seen coming from the warehouse late at night, and muffled chanting could be heard from inside. The warehouse, located off Northwood drive, was recently rented by a group to use as temporary offices and storage while they built a new church on donated land nearby.

"I noticed that the chain around the door was cut, and after calling out, went inside to take a quick look around. The smell in the place was awful, and it was extremely cold. It felt like a place you didn’t want to be."

After discovering the blood soaked altar, Lange immeditately put in a call for backup.

"There was no way I was staying in there alone," Lange explained. "I went back to my car, and unholstered my weapon and waited. It felt like a long time before they showed up. I even prayed a little."

The owners of the warehouse, College Park Properties, were just as surprised. In a statement over the phone they went on to explain, "We certainly would not, and give not permission for our property to be used in such a manner. We will certainly work with officers to help find the group that vandalized our warehouse."

But others are not so sure.

Dr. Luther McHale, who teaches a course on the occult at the Case University Divinity progam warns about ignoring such events. "There seems to be a tendancy to treat incidents like this as random, youthful vandalism. When it could be far more extensive and dangerous. Many locations which have held the so called "Black Mass", seem to create agitation and panic in the faithful."

The Beast of Warehouse 3-1


What is the "Beast" that lives around Warehouse 31?

Nobody is really sure.

Some claim it is nothing but a hoax, but don't tell that to the people who have seen it.

"It didn’t look like any animal I had ever seen," stated Jose Guerra, manager of Warehouse 3-3. "It looked like an alligator with wings. I know that sounds crazy, but I know what I saw."

The first sighting of the beast took place in 1997, when a man riding his motorcycle in the area claimed that he spotted a "a creature resembling a gargoyle with enormous bat-like wings" perched in some trees near the road.

Since that sighting, animal carcasses, mostly dogs, have been found around the area, appearing to be eaten by a large bear or other animal. And some have even claimed to sight a large "beast" around the Warehouse.

"Its just an alligator," claims College Park Properties manager and owner, George Abbot. "The warehouse complex is located next to a deep pool of water, where they come out to sun themselves, and sometimes they get a dog. Ever since Whist, anything that happens around here is blamed on ghosts and crap. "

The Whist that Abbot refers to is Parson Al Whist, a leader in the Church of the Light Bearer, who rented space in Storage 3-1, and was later discovered and evicted by police for holding strange rituals with his followers.

"I haven't seen it, so I can't say for sure, but it could be a manifestation of some kind," explains Thomas Elmwood, Occult researcher. "When there has been a dark mass, a calling for something not on this plane of existence, it is possible for a very strong presence to break through and remain--as long as it has a willing host."

Does Elmwood mean a demon?

"Perhaps, but remember, a demon is simply a spiritual force. It isn't evil or good, it's just...different. It has different wants, different needs. But yes, depending on the entity's nature, as well as it's host, it's actions could be considered evil."

But in our modern society, is such a thing even possible.

"Faith is a powerful thing," Elmwood continued, "if a collection of people project enough energy through belief, it is possible to create a miracle--something outside of our normal universe. And, nothing says that miracles have to be for the good."

So is the "beast" of Warehouse 31 a demon? Summoned to this area by Whist and his followers--perhaps even possessing Whist himself? Considering that nobody has seen or heard from Whist in two years, its an easy conclusion to jump to.

Not according to George Abott.

"This is Florida. It's an alligator."

Safety on Halloween

Help Your Children Have a Safe and Fun Halloween

Most people think of Halloween as a time for fun and treats. However, roughly four times as many children aged 5-14 are killed while walking on Halloween evening compared with other evenings of the year, and falls are a leading cause of injuries among children on Halloween. Many Halloween-related injuries can be prevented if parents closely supervise school-aged children during trick-or-treat activities.

Parents can help prevent children from getting injured at Halloween by following these safety tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Safety Council.

Children should:

Go only to well-lit houses and remain on porches rather than entering houses.

Travel in small groups and be accompanied by an adult.

Know their phone number and carry coins for emergency telephone calls.

Have their names and addresses attached to their costumes.

Bring treats home before eating them so parents can inspect them.

Use costume knives and swords that are flexible, not rigid or sharp.

When walking in neighborhoods, they should

Use flashlights, stay on sidewalks, and avoid crossing yards.

Cross streets at the corner, use crosswalks (where they exist), and do not cross between parked cars.

Stop at all corners and stay together in a group before crossing.

Wear clothing that is bright, reflective, and flame retardant.

Consider using face paint instead of masks. (Masks can obstruct a child's vision.)

Avoid wearing hats that will slide over their eyes.

Avoid wearing long, baggy, or loose costumes or oversized shoes (to prevent tripping).

Be reminded to look left, right, and left again before crossing the street.

Parents and adults should:

Supervise the outing for children under age 12.

Establish a curfew (a return time) for older children.

Prepare homes for trick-or-treaters by clearing porches, lawns, and sidewalks and by placing jack-o-lanterns away from doorways and landings.

Avoid giving choking hazards such as gum, peanuts, hard candies, or small toys as treats to young children.

Inspect all candy for safety before children eat it.

Parents and adults should ensure the safety of pedestrian trick-or-treaters

Make sure children under age 10 are supervised as they cross the street.

Drive slowly.

Watch for children in the street and on medians.

Exit driveways and alleyways carefully.

Have children get out of cars on the curb side, not on the traffic side.

And a few tips about pumpkins:

Carve pumpkins on stable, flat surfaces with good lighting.

Have children draw a face on the outside of the pumpkin, then parents should do the cutting.

Place lighted pumpkins away from curtains and other flammable objects, and do not leave lighted pumpkins unattended.

Halloween poses special risks to young pedestrians. For example, most of the time children spend outdoors is typically during daylight hours. However, Halloween activities often occur after dark. Also, children engaged in "trick or treat" activities frequently cross streets at mid-block rather than at corners or crosswalks, putting them at risk for pedestrian injury.

Many parents overestimate children's street-crossing skills. The pedestrian skills of children are limited by several factors related to their physical size and developmental stage. For instance, young children may lack the physical ability to cross a street quickly, and their small size limits their visibility to drivers. Children are likely to choose the shortest rather than the safest route across streets, often darting out between parked cars. In addition, young children do not evaluate potential traffic threats effectively, cannot anticipate driver behavior, and process sensory information more slowly than adults.



As for the Adults here...I have one thing to say!!!


That about covers Halloween!!  Enjoy the Holiday!!  Be Safe!!
