to Psychic Impressions
Virginia first arrived at the Morguen Toole Company, she picked up a
very strong female spirit named “Helen”. This female spirit was
everywhere in the building and was not shy when it came to showing
herself. Virginia felt that Helen loved greeting guests, making
sure their meals were just right and that their room was cozy if
patrons stayed there for the night.
Virginia conducted her initial walk through she gathered the
entrance - lower level:
Virginia felt the spirit of a priest walking from room to room and
picked up the name “Father Miller”.
Dining Room - first floor:
As Virginia continued her walk through in the main dining room, she
picked up a male spirit who seemed to be in charge and wanted to get
the message across that he was very proud of his business as well as
his son. The name of the spirit that Virginia picked up on was
“Reinhardt Reich” and he was speaking about his son Joseph.
the building, Virginia kept feeling the spirit of a little boy named
“Freddie” who was about 7 to 9 years old and connected to Reich
In the basement, which was previously a part of the morgue, Virginia
picked up two male spirits. One, named “Daniel”, told Virginia
that he was hit by a train and was there looking for his horse. The
second male, named “Lawrence”, told Virginia that he died from a
heart problem and worked for the railroad. Virginia felt an
abundance of residual spiritual energy in the basement from infants
to adults. As Virginia continued walking through the basement, she
also picked up American Indian spirits that would walk through the
basement like there was not even a building present there.
Floor (under reconstruction): Virginia
felt the presence of three male spirits. Virginia believed they were
moving items to the back of this space and this could be heard all
night long from the floor below. Virginia also picked up that one of
the men was some sort of a foreman named “Walter”. Walter did
not want to be disturbed and lets people know this by making them
feel very uncomfortable when they are in that area. Virginia felt the
other two spirits were black men that worked for Walter. Virginia
only received the name for one of the workers and that was “Sam”.
Floor - Kitchen: Throughout
kept picking up two female spirits. One named “Pearl” and the
second, “May” or “Mable”. They followed Virginia from the
hotel room known as, “Baer Room” to the kitchen on the main
floor. Virginia felt that May/Mable had been in a bad fire and was
burned all over her arms and chest. As Virginia began to “tune in”
while standing in the kitchen, May/Mable came closer and began to
tell Virginia that she was a teacher and then later worked with her
father in the building. While May/Mable was speaking, a male spirit
named “Charles” came forward and began telling Virginia how there
was a miscommunication and that’s why he and George could not help
his family or stop the home from burning. Virginia realized that
Pearl and May/Mable were Charles' daughters and George was his son.
While Virginia was communicating with these spirits, another female
spirit named “Felicia” showed up. Felicia kept pointing to her
hip. Virginia found out from the clients that Felicia’s maiden
name was Hip and she was married to Charles Bear.
names Virginia picked up during the investigation that were
associated with the property at one time:
Thomas Shiply, an additional Thomas, Richard and Maria or Mary who
had something to do with Reich. Virginia also picked up two men
named Ray or Raymond, a Peck, Vincent P., Ferris, William P., Otto,
Warner or Werner, Schall or Schell, Lash, Spano and the initials A &
G that had something to do with rugs. Virginia also picked up the
spirit of a big dog
the investigation at the Morguen Toole Company on this particular
date, investigators had one shared personal experience in the
basement that seemed to be consistent with other previous reports. No
physical activity was documented by audio, video or other means.
Although investigators found high electromagnetic fields running the
length of the basement main hallway, no other reports of activity
throughout the building could be ruled out as being caused by natural
sources. The high EMF'S in the basement hallway could cause a person
hypersensitive to these fields to get the feeling that they are not
alone, or are being watched, or just a general creepy feeling in this
area and this should be considered when someone reports these
sensations in this area. Due to the large size of this building and
the amount of experiences people have had here, further research
would need to be conducted at this location over a period of time to
try and collect enough information to make a reasonable determination
if a haunting was taking place or not.
Psychic Medium Virginia Centrillo does not believe there is anything
of a dark nature in this building and people will feel the spirits
that she believes are here or even catch a glimpse of the past from
time to time because the spirits are still very busy carrying on
their daily lives. Virginia received that the past owners appreciate
what the new owners are doing to preserve the past history of the
property while incorporating the future.
