The TAPS team found themselves in Bartonville, Illinois at the Peoria Asylum for their latest investigation on "Ghost Hunters." The new owners were renovating the property and felt that the construction might be stirring up some paranormal activity. After investigating the site, the TAPS team agreed.

They heard muffled screams in the attic, voices coming from different rooms and even possible video footage of a ghost in the asylum's cemetery.

Why does that piece read more like a press release from SyFy than something written by an actual journalist?  Notice there's no name associated with it.

I love the show and saw that episode.  Definitely interesting, but given the dubious history of some of the evidence on GH, I don't put much faith in it.

Not to mention, if this were legit, I think it would have made a much bigger splash - after all, it was taped months ago.  The same can be said for all of these hunting/finding shows.

Interesting. Seems too far away for a definitive opinion, though.

coool, after so many shows they managed to actually present something! :) I stopped watching it because the term "did you hear that" doesn't satisfy on the long run, but this looks neat!

That's one of the aspects that gives me pause.  They typically have one good find like this a season.  It just seems a bit contrived to me.

i only followed the first two or three seasons and then i quit watching. I didn't see anything like that before in this show.  You think they made that up to keep it interesting?

I live about 10 minutes from this place. TONS of stories coming from that whole campus. Also a local junior football league organizes a haunted house in one of the buildings and they do movie nights there too. Cool place!

I didn't see the vid in the article so I googled it:



It's interesting in that it does show an obvious thermal image like the workers do. It looks as though it's a hairy humanoid which is slowly moving around to see what's going. No image of a "ghost" though.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

Looks like somebody wearing a leather jacket just ambling about to me.
