The Last Dinosaur

This is an art depiction of two Sauropods grazing by the waters edge.

So, you think dinosaurs are all gone, don't you? Well hold on to your boots because thousands of claims have been made that our little dino buddy has found a home in West Africa, and has been hiding out there.

The History Channel sent a team to Cameroon, along the Congo River basin, to investigate the myriad of claims that have been heard around the world.

What have the people been seeing? It has been described as being reddish brown, or in some instances a dark grey in color, a long thin neck, very small snake like head with sharp teeth, a long tail, very large body, about twice the size of an elephant, four legs with claw like feet, with three claws on each foot and a frill on the back of the neck.
The description matches what science would call a Sauropod Dinosaur, that walked our earth millions of years ago, but were thought to have gone extinct.
The locals call it, "Mokele Mbembe." In the language of Lingala, it means, "one that stops the flow of rivers."
The villagers say the Sauropod is extremely territorial, and has been known to attack any who get to close. Although it prefers deep waters, it has been seen walking the surrounding swampland eating leaves out of the trees.

The earliest account of Mokele Mbembe goes back to 1776 and can be found in a book written by, Abbe Bonaventure. A missionary from France, Bonaventure was documenting plants and animals of many forms. When Abbe came across huge footprints that he personally witnessed, he wrote the following statement,............" It must have been monstrous: the marks of the claws were noted on the ground, and these formed a print about three feet in circumference."

Since Bonaventure, there have been 32 other varying missions, with a mixed bag of success. From direct eye witnessed accounts, the finding of foot prints in the mud, pictures that are hard to determine but the people involved swear it is of the creature, ........to not finding the animal but instead the locals tell their tails of the dino to the explorers.
When the History Channel did a picture test of Mokele Mbembe, the villagers all selected the hand sketched Sauropod Dinosaur out of a stack of local animals.

Several groups of villagers speak of killing two of the Sauropods over the years, by blocking the river bend with a type of fence, cornering the animal and blocking its escape. (How horrifying for the poor creature!)

You know there is a lot of unexplored wilderness in Africa and almost 250 years of documented accounts. I personally tend to believe that something is there.

I do hope wholeheartedly, that when science finally puts this animal back on the list, that it gets the protection it deserves.

Here is a brief (12 min.) video by Monster Quest:,

Waverly Hills Sanitarium

Waverly Hills opened in 1910 for the ever expanding amount of tuberculosis patients and the structure immediately started upon the long road of never-ending trauma and death. Today it is considered one of the most haunted locations in the world. The enormous and impressive structure, looms over an isolated hill lined with trees, which stand like ancient, twisted sentries. Hideous Gargoyles sit perched atop the building, staring with their frozen expression into the great void. Currently without electricity, it is extremely dark inside , very creepy and loaded with graffiti sprayed throughout the interior walls.

You are guaranteed to get your haunt thrills here! Waverly has been featured on,.....
* ABC/FOX, with a show called "Scariest Places on Earth."
*Sci Fi Channel, with a show called "Ghost Hunters."
*Travel Channel, with a show called " Most Haunted" and more recently "Ghost Adventures."

Waverly Sanitarium closed it's doors in 1962, then later on in the same year it reopened as a geriatrics hospital. It closed for a final time less then 20yrs later, due to a multitude of reported patient abuses.

The structure under went many additions and reconstruction projects since it's opening in 1910 and finally mutated into the building you see today. While the main building was being built, a deep tunnel traveling more than 500' was constructed going from the bottom of the hill and travels (at a 45 degree angle) all the way up to the lower level of the building. The tunnel was constructed with steps on one side and a cart on a cable system on the other side. The original purpose of the tunnel, was to haul supplies with relative ease, up the hill and into the building. However, as patients started to expire at a shockingly rapid pace, it was decided that the tunnel would be used to haul away the dead as discreetly as possible.

The tunnel became known as,...... the body chute.

There are many conflicting reports as to the amount of people who perished in Waverly. The legend of Waverly, states 63,000 took their final agonizing breath within these walls.

Reports that can be found have actually documented a death an hour! Gruesome.

Also on the ground floor is the dreaded and much used morgue. The refrigerated units still sit eerily there, with spooky phrases now graffitied all over the surface.
On the show, Scariest Places on Earth, a group of girls were spending the night at Waverly, and while in the morgue, the girls pushed the body tray back into the refrigerator unit, they then proceeded to walk a few feet away, and the body tray pulled itself back out with a LOUD echoing sound, that vibrated right to your bones. Needless to say, the girls ran with blood curdling screams.
The fourth floor contains some very dark energy, as it is home to the dreaded Operating Room where so many people were horrendously butchered. Doctors which seem Medieval by today's standards would routinely remove up to 8 bones from the patient's ribcage, where they would then try to deflate the lungs. These people for the most part went on to quickly and painfully die.

Director of Security and tour guide for Waverly, Scott Gray, talks to the Ghost Adventures Crew of being physically attacked during a ghost investigation,.......where he says he was actually punched while sitting on a chair, positioned inside the O.R.
After this dreadful encounter, Mr. Gray now refuses to fully enter the Operating Room when giving tours,....going no farther than the doorway. Patrons of the ghost tour who have entered, complained of sharp headaches, and other sporadic pains within their body, until they exited the area.
Nick of the Ghost Adventures Crew, had an obvious look of distress upon his face and admitted to the viewing audience, that he was feeling pressure on his side, while filming inside this macabre room.
Also found on the fourth floor is a shadow entity known as the Creeper. It has been seen walking out of walls in an upright position,...... where it then falls to the floor, ......and has the shadow appearance of crawling upon four appendages. The Creeper proceeds to lurk around the floor,....then in an instant,.......it crawls up the walls,.....and onto the ceiling. (Go ahead and say it,.......Ewwww.)

The 5th floor was the insane ward for the tuberculosis patients. Stories abound that a nurse was horrendously murdered by a patient in the bathroom of room #502.
The words " The killing room" and " bathed in blood" are painted on the wall as a chilling reminder of what took place inside that particular space.
Another grizzly event to take place around the infamous room #502, occurred directly in front of it. A deeply depressed nurse, who was unmarried and pregnant, discovered she had contracted the disease Tuberculosis. With an incredible feeling of hopelessness, she decided to end it all,...... and she hung herself,....leaving her bizarrely twisted neck and slowly spinning body for all to see.
The pain of this devastated woman was now clearly revealed to the world.

The many children of Waverly were cared for in a special department,....... and located outside, is a large roof-top area where swing sets were set up for those young ones who still had enough energy to play.

Former employees would relay stories of finding a large group of children, standing silently around the empty bed of a dead child,........who had passed away in the dark of the night. It was the first image the morning shift was present with when they arrived for work,.. on those frequent and especially grim days where the specter of Death had visited the night before.

Children mutely standing,.......staring,.........at the bed where once their friend had layed.

If you have a "must see haunt list"...... this should definitely be on it.

The phenomenon include...........................................................................

*EVP (Electronic voice phenomenon).
*Whispers, laughs and screams for help, that can be heard without a recorder.
*Ghostly children reaching up and holding your hand, while you walk down the hall,.........and playing ball with visitors who bring in toys for them to amuse themselves with.
*Cold spots that appear and disappear without any logical explanation.
*Areas of the building that completely light up for an instant, even though there is NO electricity in the structure.
*The movement of shadow people that glide across the floors and in and out of walls.
*People who have visited have reported being physically touched and even SCRATCHED!

Want to see it yet?

Each year the building becomes a haunted house attraction for Halloween.

Can't wait that long?

Throughout the year there are guided historical tours,...... and for the brave there are guided ghost tours.
You can even make a request to stay overnight, and do a little private investigating on your own.

Go to http://www.therealwaverlyhills.com/ for tour information.

Good luck if you go. Come back and let us know your experiences. I would love to hear about it.

Do you want to hear the spirits of Waverly talk?

In this very brief 2 minute video, Zak from the Ghost Adventures Crew, goes down into the morgue and lays down on the body tray. The other investigators leave the room and while alone,...Zak proceeds to say, "I'm starting to feel really, really lethargic." The spirit response caught on the digital recorder says, "Gonna get Zak."

Zak then says, "I feel like bodies are laying on top of me,........like stocked,........like I just can't move,..........like I'm just frozen,........pressure on top of me,.........like I'm on the bottom layer." One of the creepiest spirit voices you will ever hear responds by saying, "Your not gonna make it."


This is another brief 5 minute video by the Travel Channel, depicting this ghostly sanitarium. The Travel Channel takes us all over the world, and they love to give us the creepiest, scariest, most haunted locations on the planet. No surprise here,........Waverly makes the list.

Thank you Travel Channel,........have we told you lately that we love you?



October of 2010,.......Ghost Adventures investigated the sanitarium, and came away with a large amount of evidence, of the many ghosts that reside at Waverly.

Some of the evidence captured include,..........

* A full spectrum camera was placed on the 3rd floor and manages to catch a black shadow figure, that manifests before your eyes upon the viewing screen,.......then proceeds to walk directly into the wall. A second dark figure is spotted walking across the hallway, during the tape review process.

* An Energy Device is placed on the floor near room #502. When you come close to the unit, it emits a very distinct buzzing sound and lights up as soon as the energy field is broken. Zak then proceeds to say, "Are you standing right here?" The buzzer immediately sounds and lights up!

Zak then says, "Can you step away from the buzzer, so it can turn off?" A brief moment latter,........the buzzer shuts completely off. The entity responded intelligently to the instructions given,.............. not once,......but a second time.

Zak then says, "Do you like playing with this?" The buzzer sounds off again..

Zak, " Can you tell us your name?" The spirit response caught on the digital recorder, and heard by the group without the recorder replied with, "Remember Me?"

Zak, " Stay over here with me." Spirit reply, "That would be evil."

When the investigators left the area,............ all interaction with the lights and buzzer stopped also.

Other spirit voices caught on recorder,........................

*Zak, "Is there anybody in here with us?" Spirit response, "Give me a break."

*Arron, "We have a patient in here who needs some help." Spirit response, "I forgot to make him smile."

*Zak, while feeling something touch his ankle, says, "Are you close to me?" Spirit response, " I keep on dragging from the bad drugs we took. "

*Nick comes in to pull Zak out of the body tray that he had been laying in,.... and says to Zak, "Want me to pull you out?" Spirit response captured, " I'll keep him. "

*Zak, " Can you tell me what year it is?" Spirit response, "2010."

*Zak, " Make a noise for us please,...can you do that?" Several spirits respond, .....first spirit,........"Nurse,....come here,.....make my bed,.....nurse!" Second spirit responding, "He can't stop you."

*Zak, "Are you in here with us?" Spirit response, "Good luck tonight."

*Arron, "Did you die of Tuberculosis in here?" Spirit response is a long drawn out moaning sound. This lament was so loud,...it was heard clearly without the recorder.

*Arron, while filming and talking to the viewing audience, says, " I am spooked right now,......really spooked. I think like two drops of pee came out on that one for sure." Spirit response, "So what?"

*Zak, "Are you still trying to take peoples rib cages out?" Spirit response, "You got messed up heart beats."

This was an excellent investigation. Entertaining, exciting,......these men are emotional and respectful of one another, ....a pure joy to watch.

Simply a great investigating group.

Haunted Fort Delaware, Pea Patch Island


This massive and intimidating fort was built in 1859 for strategic military defense, upon a small island located within the Delaware River, called Pea Patch Island.

During the Civil War, it was used as a prison for Confederate prisoners of war. Many of these inmates came from the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863 and by the end of the war, over 33,000 unfortunates were crammed into it's depressing space.

MANY ghosts are seen, heard and felt on this island. Male
ghosts, female ghosts and even a child's ghost live and haunt this spooky ground.

It is believed the child's ghost belongs to a youngster who died in a grisly fall, down a granite staircase near the fort's entrance. As is the case in so many instances like this, the physical space where the tragedy took place becomes visibly scared. The area where the child's body landed and met his sad demise, appears to be darker in color, than every other stone around it.

Ghostly sounds seem to emanate from everywhere on the property,...from a soft whisper directly into your ear,.....to a far away moan that echoes off of the stone walls of the fort.
Other haunting sounds that have been reported at the fort include,................
*A woman's spirit,... who is unable to be consoled, can be heard  mournfully weeping.
* A child's ghostly laughter appears and slowly fades out,... as if the youngster is still running around the fort's grounds!
*Swearing in an angry voice is heard coming from the magazine area and the deep pitch of a man's menacing threats will send chills down your back,.... that is,..... if he talks to you!
* Haunting strains of music are heard piercing thorough another dimension, on what sounds like a harmonica and fife.
All of these events have been reported by many of the guests and most of the staff throughout the years.

During a recent episode of "Ghost Hunters" an ominous and loud voice said, "Your not suppose to be here!" The voice could clearly be heard without the assistance of a computer. This spirit was enjoying his fifteen minutes of fame, as he spoke more then once on the show.
When Grant and Jay said in a very provoking manner, " Do something .......and we will leave." The spirit responded by grabbing Grant by the back of his coat and shockingly pulling him backwards!
Upon trying to proceed with the investigation, Grant was grabbed and yanked backwards a second time!
Stories have been told by visitors, who have seen ghostly hands rising up out of the river surrounding the fort. This is the exact area where prisoners had attempted to escape, only to drown in the inky black depths. The last image seen of the dying men, were their hands reaching up pleadingly to the heavens.

Eerie faces can be seen peering out of the walls, where the cannons were located. It makes you wonder,....are these phantoms still searching for a way out?

Fort Delaware is spooky, historic and lives up to it's nickname as the Death pen! With more then 3,000 people dying on these wretched grounds, you are sure to bump into a ghost or two.
Want to see a full figure apparition? This tall, thin ghost is caught on a thermal camera during the Ghost Hunters live investigation of the haunted island. All members were accounted for and no where near the camera that caught this compelling video.
In this very brief video, you will see investigator Grant get pulled by an invisible hand. Ever see a ghost grab someone? Want to see one now?

Pea Patch Island has now been turned into a State Park and is owned by the state of Delaware. It is open to the public and can be toured complete with an escorting tour guide.

Lots of haunted tours are offered around Halloween.

Check out http://www.destateparks.com/fdsp/fdsp.htm for information on dates and times.

Preston Castle

The extremely haunted Preston Castle is located in Lone California. Formerly known as the Preston School of Industry, it is an old and well known reform school. The building opened it's doors in June of 1894.

The first group to arrive there were juvenile offenders that had been sent there from San Quentin State Prison. Many of the children who became wards of the state had no criminal back round what so ever, they were simply abandoned to the institution. The ages of the wards ranged from 12yrs. to 24yrs. Because of the criminal element, many gangs formed and the riots at the castle were numerous.

The children were taught blue collared skills and worked the grounds. There was even a slaughter house on the property where the boys were taught to butcher pigs!

There is a LONG list of ghastly events that transpired at the ancient looking castle. One of the many ghosts that is said to walk the halls..... is that of the head housekeeper. The body of the housekeeper was found in the basement, laying in a sticky pool of her own blood, after having been bludgeoned to death by an unknown assailant.

Another frightening murder happened in 1965 within one of the many buildings on the property. The agriculture teacher was attacked from behind while he was working, by two students. The teacher's head was pummeled and crushed with a lead pipe, as the young troubled assailants took frantic and repeated blows. Absolutely gruesome.

26 other deaths are listed as suspicious in the official records.

graveyard is located on the grounds where many of the wards are buried, who had no one to claim their body upon death.

This castle is FILLED with disembodied voices. People have actually been possessed while in the buildings and scratched repeatedly,... leaving bloody scribbles oozing, upon their tender skin.
Knocks, footsteps and extremely loud bangs ,...are regularly heard. Black shadows and mists are frequently seen gliding throughout the many rooms and hallways.

Preston Castle closed it's doors officially many years ago and is now on the National Register of Historic Places.The building is very deteriorated in places and it is dangerous to tour without proper supervision, however experienced guides are available to give a rather safe tour of this spooky facility. The tours are available from 10am -- 2pm on the first and third Saturday of every month.

This is an extremely active and haunted site.
Recently the show "Ghost Adventures", shot a lock down episode and it aired on the Travel Channel. Here is the first segment of that show, giving you an inside view and an excellent history.

If you really want to hear ghosts talking and you are brave enough............. bring your digital recorder and go here!
