Sound Files for Fractured Spirits PDF Print E-mail


As you read Fractured Spirits: Hauntings at the Peoria State Hospital, you’ll notice a little ghostie icon in the margins. This is your cue – lucky you! – that extra fun awaits you on the Internet. I’ve collected many EVPs and ghost photographs during the course of researching this book. Whenever you see the ghostie, that means that the EVP recording or photograph referenced in the text is available right here! Enjoy.

Page 30: Donkey baseball. There is a video clip, shot at the Peoria State Hospital in the 1960s, that shows patients playing donkey baseball. Seriously. The patients would hit the ball, then clamber onto the back of a donkey and try to make it to first base without getting bucked off.
