In a quiet neighborhood, just a few blocks away from Villisca’s downtown, stands a very ordinary looking white frame house. The crime that took place here was anything, but ordinary. Six children and two adults would go to sleep on the evening of June 9th in 1912 and never wake up. A neighbor and family member would find the six members of the J.B. Moore family dead, along with Lena and Ina Stillinger. The crime scene was horrific and bloody since all the victims were killed with an axe. The murders were never solved and justice never came. We featured the house back when the podcast first launched in October of 2014 on episode 7. I never imagined that I would eventually visit and tour the house, much less spend an evening sleeping inside. Join myself, Kelly and three listeners on this investigation of the Villisca Axe Murder House. The Moment in Oddity was suggested by Nicole Capps Dixon and features the Boojum of North Carolina and This Month in History features the Veil of Our Lady appearing.

Hello Diane! I’m a fairly new listener and I listen to your podcast every day at work. I work inside of a prison in Oregon where there are a few haunted areas or intelligent paranormal activity. Before the construction of the prison I hear that 2 dead bodies were found in the swamp/body of water that was on the property. We are not sure what/whom is haunting our facility but it loves opening closet doors, knocking on the doors and throwing books off the shelf. The facility is made of cement or some type of stone and I know that type of material holds residual energy (if I understood that correctly). Even our captain has his own little file on paranormal happenings at the prison! I particularly love listening to your podcasts on state hospitals, asylums and prisons since I work on the mental health side of things. I am so happy I still have like 250 more podcasts to listen to!

Hey Brit from Oregon! Thanks so much for listening and your kind comments! Sounds like that prison can be a kinda creepy place. Thanks for sharing the experiences and thank you for the work you do. It can’t be easy! Keep it spooky! -Diane
