:

The Athens Lunatic Asylum was a mental hospital located in Athens, Ohio, from 1874 to 1993. It’s commonly known for it’s prevalence of the lobotomy as well as the number of legends that say it is haunted.

In December of 1979, a patient called Margaret Schilling disappeared from the mental hospital. It wasn’t until 42 days later, when workers discovered her decomposed remains in one of the abandoned wards, that what became of her was uncovered. Sitting beside her was a pile of her neatly folded clothes.

To this very day, the stain caused by the purge fluid leaking from her body remains on the floor. No matter how hard workers tried, the stains could not be removed. While many believed this to be a rumour, a team of forensic experts concluded that the stain was in fact, caused by human purge fluid.
