ROCKINGHAM — The chill in the Friday night air seemed fitting for ghost stories, which were offered by Pee Dee Region Paranormal.

Those stories were more informative than spooky as more than two dozen people were led around downtown listening to accounts of spirit sightings.

Their guide: Scott Tomestic, a member of the paranormal investigation team and descendant of Nicholas Noyes, official minister during the infamous Salem witchcraft trials.
