The team from Sight and Sound Paranormal, Kevin Fow (left), Thomas Hood (center) and Miranda Guarnieri (right) conducts an investigation into whether or not Cry Baby Bridge on Bellview Road is haunted.

The silence on Cry Baby Bridge was broken only by chirping of crickets, the forlorn call of a lone owl echoing in the darkness and the gurgle of water underneath.

Oh, and yes, also, a faintly, ghostly whispering.

Was it the wind in the trees, or the spirit of a young mother that reputedly drove herself and her infant to their deaths off the bridge many years ago?

A paranormal investigation at the bridge Thursday, located on Bellview Road in Shelby County, left ghost hunters uncertain.
