Northern Michigan Asylum for the Insane

Dr. Fong Says:
This place is definitely creepy and certainly haunted. No doubt filled with insane ghouls waiting to feast on the souls of the living. Good thing they are turning them into condos...

"Traverse City State Hospital opened in 1885 as the Northern Michigan Asylum for the Insane."

"The institution (at the end called a regional psychiatric hospital) closed in 1989 as part of a nationwide trend in de-institutionalization of the mentally ill which had causes including changes in the overall philosophy of treatment, advances in medicine, and government budget concerns."

Severed Goat Heads Puzzle City Police

Dr. Fong Says:
Sounds to me l like some nutty Satanists are at it again. Come on guys, goat heads and pentagrams; that is SO 1979!

"Torrington Police found two severed goat heads, a coconut and a pentagram drawn in chalk at the beginning of a driveway of a residence around 5:44 p.m. last Thursday evening, police Lt. Francis Balzano said.

"We’re not saying this is illegal," Balzano said. "We would just like to know what it means."

At this point police are not sure if this incident was some kind of ritual, practical joke or a crime against the homeowner.

Balzano said police find such combinations a couple times a year, usually in wooded areas."
