On Ron’s Amazing Stories this week we pretty much dedicate the entire show to one story, The Boy In The Basement. It was written by Sylvia Shults and is in fact her true encounter with Christopher, who just happens to be a spirit. This is a rare look at the behind the scenes of ghost hunting and even more amazing her ongoing relationship with Chris. Something that almost never happens. Also, on the show we have a brand new story from you guys, and of course all of the other stuff you have come to enjoy on the show. So press that play button and please come join us.
Featured Story – The Boy In The Basement
This story is featured in the book Fractured Souls: More Hauntings at the Peoria State Hospital. The book was written by our very own Sylvia Shults. The Peoria State Hospital was once the finest facility in the world for the care of the mentally ill. The asylum closed its doors in 1973, but the hilltop remains active to this day. Instead of the conversations of patients and the squeak of nurses’ shoes, the halls now echo with the beeps of K2 meters and the hiss of spirit boxes. It’s still a busy place, and for the spirits of many of its patients, it is still home.
Other Stories Include – Case of Announcer’s Delight, Lincoln on the Verge: Thirteen Days to Washington, The overprotective Ghost, and The Boy In The Basement
