Inside the bedroom where the exorcism took place.
The Ghost Adventures crew members say their investigation last month got off to a strange start even before they arrived at the Bel-Nor home. Fr. Jack Ashcraft, a priest and exorcist who was supposed to join them for the filming, had a freak medical emergency while traveling to the home and had to go to the hospital instead of attending the investigation. Bagans says that he also experienced a strange illness.

The investigation itself, however, started out as something of a bust.

"For the first three hours we were in the house we didn't experience shit," recalls Bagans.

The team then brought in a ouija board.

"We had our SB7 spirit box with us, and there was this weird moment when I actually said out loud to the guys: 'Do you really want to do this?'" recalls Groff. "Suddenly we got voices coming thorough the spirit box. One said 'devil' another said 'diablo.' Something was there with us."

Groff says he later presented the audio from the spirit box to Fr. Ashcraft.

"His jaw just dropped," says Groff. "He was like, 'You guys need to be careful and seek help. Not only is that one spirit, it's probably multiple demonic entities you heard -- perhaps up to seven -- because the weaker ones can't be heard as clearly."

Concludes Bagans: "It's draining what we encounter. The energy. It can drag everything out of your soul."

Tune into the Travel Channel on Friday, October 4, at 8 p.m. CST for more of the Ghost Adventures investigation of the St. Louis "Exorcist House."

I hope these guys remainEd Hardy and steadfast in the face of this demonic presence, and don't suffer any long-standing mental or physical Affliction as a result of their experience.

Too bad they weren't able to interview any of the actual Alexian Brothers who worked at the old Hospital Building back in 1949.  I'm sure all are deceased by now.  My Dad used to make sales calls at the Hospital in the 60's and early 70's and got to know several of the Brothers quite well.   They recounted what happened every time the Priest who performed the exorcism would enter the Hospital with stories of all the pharmacy meds flying out of their cabinets and being scattered across the floor of the on-site Pharmacy.  They had no reason to lie about the events of that year and said it was an awful mess to clean up and re-stock.

Whoa dude! You mean to tell me that the Douche bag ghosthunters were in town and I missed them? Bummer dude! 


I look forward to the show where some demon or ghost throws this guy and his fauxhawk through a wall. Now THAT would be entertaining!!

No, the wing of Alexian brothers hospital was torn down. The house was up for sale 9 or 10 years ago.

@billj598 , I am sure some are still around. Can you give us any more detail? What else did your dad say?

@BillHannegan @billj598  He said just what I posted.  The religious Brothers in charge of the Pharmacy at the old Hospital told my Dad that they knew that every time the appointed Jesuit exorcist walked into the Hospital, all the cabinet doors in the Pharmacy would fly open and the pills contained in the Pharmacy cabinets were scattered across the floor creating a mess and necessitating expensive re-order and re-stocking.  As the record states, the Hospital is the site where the exorcism was finally successful.  I seriously doubt any of those Brothers are still living as none of them were young men in the 70's.  My Dad sold them janitorial and cleaning chemicals and called there about once a month.

@billj598 , last year I talked to a brother who is current head of the hospital. I believe he did say all the brothers present were dead. He also said he had the report concerning the case, but did not sound like he had ever read it.

One of the brothers that was present in the hospital during the exorcism (he was not in the room) died just five or six years ago.

On the night he died the chapel bells rang continuously for over an hour. It was around eight at night when they started.

They are activated by a breaker and a switch, and no one knows who turned them on. None of the chaplains could be located inside the hospital. The brothers, no longer owners of the hospital but still having a residence on site, didn't have keys to where the the fuse box was located.

I was there the night the bells rang and was charged with turning them off. It took me an hour to make contact with someone that knew how. It was the following day I discovered the same brother had died. Still sends chills down my spine.
