The St. Vincent Asylum was built in 1945 in Northeast Oklahoma City. This mental institution was built specifically for men with mental instabilities.
St. Vincent was originally run by the Brothers of Mercy.
Patients ranged from a 7-year-old boy to a 90-year-old man.
This asylum seemed to be like any other, until the 1960s when rumors of murders started to circulate.
In 1962, a nurse suffocated two patients. There was no explanation for these killings. The charges were later dropped due to the man being diagnosed with schizophrenia.
It is said that over the years many other murders happened within the walls of St. Vincent.
The institution closed its doors in the 1980s.
This historical landmark is known as one of the most haunted places in Oklahoma.
Although it is off-limits to the public, many paranormal investigators have gained access to this site to investigate the torched souls that are supposedly trapped within its walls.
The television show Ghost Asylum on Destination America featured St. Vincent in one of their episodes.
They said something lurks there, although they couldn’t pinpoint what it exactly was.
Some investigators have even said that a demonic force resides within.
Has this demonic force been here since the beginning? Did it drive the staff and patients insane?
Perhaps this demonic force played a role in the murders that happened years ago.
