Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum

TALA FRONT VIEW FOR BLOG1Our first investigation as MD Paranormal takes place June 18th, 2011 at The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (aka The Weston State Hospital) in Weston, WV.  For me, personally, this is going to be a great investigation because of my family ties with this area.  My Dad was originally from Weston, WV, and we have several family members still in the area. Members of my family were employed at the asylum for several years.

I remember visiting the asylum when I was younger.  I don't remember the context, and it even could have been a dream induced by visiting family who lived in proximity of the building.  It certainly seems a strange location to take a child.

Due to patient confidentiality, there's no way to determine if anyone close to my family was ever a patient at the facility.  Hopefully, the investigation can turn up something.


April 9th, 2011, we performed an investigation of the former West Virginia Penitentiary in Moundsville.  Check out this video of something we caught shooting out of a room in the solitary confinement area.  It is reported this is the spot where prison snitch R.D. Wall was brutally murdered.  If you look at the dark black spot in the middle by his head, you will see an orb dart out of the room very quickly.  As it exits, it also makes a pretty loud noise that was picked up by the camera's audio.  This orb looks very different than any bug or insect we previously captured.
