EVPs at the Villisca Axe Murder House
Killed with an Axe by an Unknown Assailant - 8 People Murdered in their Beds in Villisca

These are three great EVPs (spirit voices captured on audio tape) that were recorded during PRISM's 2005 paranormal investigations of the Villisca Axe Murder House, where eight people were bludgeoned to death in 1912. In this audio presentation, the voice of two children can be heard talking.

There were no children present during our investigations ...with that, we ask you to be the judge on what it is that we recorded at the home.

When listening to the audio, it may help to know the names and ages of the children that were murdered in the home - Herman (age 11), Katherine Moore (age 10), Boyd Moore (age 7), Paul Moore (age 5), Lena Stillinger (age 11) and Ina Stillinger (age 8.)

Almost 97 years ago, long before serial killers and mass murders had become a way of life, two adults and 6 children were found brutally murdered in their beds in the small mid-western town of Villisca, Iowa.

Villisca is a city in Montgomery County, Iowa, United States. On June 10th, 1912, six members of the Moore family and two young house guests were killed with an axe by an unknown assailant.

The case has inspired two published books: Roy Marshall's Villisca and Stephen Bowman's fictionalized Morning Ran Red. Kelly and Tammy Rundle's documentary Villisca: Living with a Mystery also dealt with the incident.

Scariest Places On Earth

Paranormal researchers pay a visit to a home that is reportedly haunted. As the story unfolds, the team visits a farmhouse where in 1912, someone hacked an entire family to death with an axe.

The killer was never caught, and the crime remains a mystery to this day.  This series is no longer available and there is no DVD set.

Here is what someone in Virginia wrote on a blog concerning this series: "Fox Family Channel by the turn of the century was bought out by ABC TV who is in turn owned by Disney.

Disney being family friendly canned this show in 2001. There were a few designated replays of the show on Family Channel but that was just to finish out the obligations to the creators of the show.

Today this shows' video tapes sits in the vault somewhere at Family Channel Studios collecting dust and waiting to be released on DVD uncut uncensored and unedited. But knowing Michael Eisner and Disney that ain't never going to happen."
