Ohio Reformatory (sometimes titled "Ohio State Reformatory") is the fourth episode of Season 3 of Ghost Adventures. In its 96-year history, more than 150,000 criminals were confined to the towering cell blocks of the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield. Today, their evil spirits still prey on women, the elderly and the weak as they carry out their eternal sentences.
