“World-renowned” experts of the paranormal Robert Borden and Mason Kleinfeld are visiting Texas A&M University for an indeterminate amount of time to lead the search for the Spirit of Aggieland. Borden and Kleinfeld are co-creators of Hillbillies and Hauntings, a company that “seeks to be valiant on every vanguard while exposing the truth of the world around us,” as stated on their website.
The reported ghost is known for its extended arm position in which the letters ‘W-C’ are formed with its hand
The ghost reportedly wears overalls, carrying a gun in one hand and wearing a gold ring on the other. It is most commonly seen standing beside the statue of E. King Gill in Rudder Plaza. “It’s almost like [the spirit] is looking it up and down, comparing itself to see who is bigger,” said Borden. Borden and Kleinfeld have limited their search to central campus and will continue searching until they are able to capture evidence of the apparition to prove its existence to their client.
The man who hired Hillbillies and Hauntings had an alleged encounter with the spirit during his time spent at the university. “He wants us to answer the question: ‘Where did it go?’” Kleinfeld said. When asked about who his client is, he shrugged. “He refuses to tell us his full name. But he’s paying us good money by the day, so who cares?” said Borden.
Borden and Kleinfeld are reaching out to students and faculty for help on the case. “With so many people on campus, we are surprised no one has seen anything,” said Kleinfeld. “We’re hoping somebody catches a whiff of the spirit soon.”
