The main entrance of Roosevelt High School
Ask anyone who has attended Roosevelt High School in Fresno if it's haunted and more likely than not the answer will be yes. The school is rumored to have two spirits haunting it, and they have been there for several decades.
The East Hall of Roosevelt High School, where the spirit of a student is said
to roam the old boys restroom.
The first one is regarding the story of a boy who committed suicide in the boys restroom in the East Hall. No one knows why he took his life, but the restroom was reportedly locked for many years because of this. People have reported hearing them when they are by themselves. A janitor who was working late one night said he heard someone coughing in the old restroom. When he went to check to see if anyone was there, no one could be found. Others have said they feel an unnatural cold sensation in the room. The restroom was used for storage for many years, but finally reopened in the 2007 - 2008 school year.
The auditorium of Roosevelt High School where the spirit of a student is
still seen on stage.
The other ghost can be found in the school's auditorium. The story goes that sometime in 1977, a student named Lester was performing on stage and suddenly died. Speculation said it was either dehydration or possibly a heart attack. Whatever the cause of his untimely death may be, for some reason Lester has not left the auditorium. People have reported seeing him mostly on the stage, though others have felt a presence back stage and even the seating area.
If you look at the thread I started on Fresno Famous, there are plenty of stories about Roosevelt's ghosts. Something has to be walking that auditorium late at night and roaming the boys restroom in the East Hall if people keep reporting it. Yet no one knows why these spirits continue to haunt the places where they have died.
