The TAPS team found yet another super spooky location for tonight’s investigation on Ghost Hunters: The Peoria Asylum in Bartonville, Illinois. The massive former mental hospital, which opened in 1902, is said to be home to 16,000 deaths throughout its haunted history. As a result of ongoing renovations, many believe the spirits have been stirred up even more. In addition to the usual paranormal experiences like disembodied footsteps and strange sounds, the main focus has been on two specific spirits. The first is the so-called “Woman in White” with long, stringy hair and crazy eyes. One person even captured a photo of what he believes is the woman in white standing in a window staring back at him. Then there’s the ghost of Dr. Zeller, a doctor with a tight connection to the asylum. What evidence was the TAPS team able to capture this time? Did the woman in white or Dr. Zeller manifest themselves? Turn down the lights, and read deeper into this article to find out… if you’re brave enough!
The investigation began with Jason and Steve roaming the hallways asking whatever paranormal presence may be lurking in the shadows. Although they didn’t spot anything, the duo started hearing strange sounds in the distance. After moving into the attic, the sounds got louder — especially when Jason mentioned shock therapy.
But they weren’t the only two hearing odd noises. Britt and KJ chased down a series of sounds as they held an EVP session of their own. As they moved on to a new location, Britt and KJ used their silly squealing device (which I always think is absolutely ridiculous) and began asking more questions. Surprise! Surprise! The damn chirping device squealed. Weird? Yes. Creepy? No. Silly? 100 percent.
One of the coolest, creepiest component of this investigation involved a small doll. When Tango and Michelle — the newest investigator — initially spotted the doll, they discussed how eerie it was. When they passed by it a second time, the tiny toy was in a completely different position. Sure, this could be very easily faked, but it’s still an extremely creepy concept. What would you do in that situation? Get excited? Scream?
After reviewing all of their footage and audio, there was one piece of video that was really interesting from the on-site cemetery as a see-through human-like shape walks by in the distance. Now that’s what I’m talking about! Really neat to see.
