Sup Travellers?! Back in 1912 it was reported that a man wielding an ax murdered six children and two adults before fleeing the scene. The man was never caught but the house in which the tragic incident took place has been labeled as haunted.
The house which is located in Iowa has been sort of a tourist attraction as people flock from all over to see the place where the home of the family of Josiah Moore and his two overnight guests were bludgeoned to death.
But one ghost hunter bypassed the whole tourist facade and visited on ghost hunter business.
Robert Laursen of Rhinelander, Wisconsin, was staying overnight in the Villisca Ax Murder House when he reportedly stabbed himself for no obvious reason.
According to reports from the Daily Mail Laursen was taken to hospital after inflicting the wound on himself. Local authorities could not ascribe a motive to his actions.
The details of what unfolded are unclear, though reports claim that Laursen was alone inside one of the rooms inside the home — which has no working plumbing or electricity — when the stabbing unfolded just before 1 a.m. Friday morning.
"It's kind of shocking to wake up and hear that someone has nearly died at your tourist attraction," Villisca Ax Murder House owner Martha Linn told the Omaha World-Herald, adding that she's "sick" over the incident. "I can’t imagine why somebody would do something like this to himself."
I really don't know why he would just stab himself but many suspicious folks may see that the spirits of the people who died in the house in 1912 were responsible for his act.
That may obviously sound absurd to some but who knows?
"Visits by paranormal investigators have provided audio, video and photographic proof of paranormal activity," reads the home’s official website. "Tours have been cut short by children’s voices, falling lamps, moving ladders and flying objects. Psychics have confirmed the presence of spirits dwelling in the home and many have actually communicated with them, and skeptics have left believers."
Scared? You shouldn't be --- well at least not yet BWAHAHAHAHA!!!. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
