Home » Villisca Axe House Demonic Possession Video

Ouija Board can wrong especially when done at a location known for a demonic haunting, such as the Villisca Axe House.  While we have had mixed results in the past by using the Ouija Board at known haunted locations such as the Sallie House, we decided to try the experiment again.  This demon possession video occurs in 2009 during a live paranormal investigation. During the possession occurs shortly after Tim uses the Ouija Board.  Tim used the Ouija Board so that he might get some clarity as to who, and why the murders had occurred at the house.

Villisca Axe House History

The Villisca axe murders occurred between the evening of June 10, 1912, and the early morning of June 11, 1912.  It was during this time that six members of the Moore family and two guests were found murdered in the house.  All eight victims were murdered from an ax.  Although a long investigation leads to several suspects, and trials, the crime still remains unsolved.

The Moores

The Moore family consisted of parents Josiah B. (aged 43), Sarah (née Montgomery) (aged 39), and their four children: Herman Montgomery (aged 11), Mary Katherine (aged 10), Arthur Boyd (aged 7), and Paul Vernon. An affluent family, the Moores were well-known and well-liked in their community.

On June 10, 1912, Mary Katherine Moore invited Ina Mae (aged 8) and Lena Gertrude Stillinger (aged 12) to spend the night. That evening, the visiting girls and the Moore family attended the Presbyterian church.  While there they participated in the Children’s Day Program, which Sarah Moore had coordinated. After the program ended at 9:30 p.m., the Moores and the Stillinger sisters walked to the Moores’ house, arriving between 9:45 and 10 p.m.

At 7 a.m. the next day, Mary Peckham, the Moores’ neighbor, became concerned after she noticed that the Moore family had not come out to do their morning chores. Peckham knocked on the Moores’ door. When nobody answered, she tried to open the door and discovered that it was locked. Peckham let the Moores’ chickens out and called Ross Moore, Josiah Moore’s brother. Like Peckham, Moore received no response when he knocked on the door and shouted.

Finding the bodies

He unlocked the front door with his copy of the house key. While Peckham stood on the porch, Moore went into the parlor and opened the guest bedroom door. It was then he made a gruesome discovery.  He found Ina and Lena Stillinger’s bodies on the bed. Moore immediately told Peckham to call Hank Horton, Villisca’s primary police officer. Horton’s search of the house revealed that the entire Moore family and the two Stillinger girls had murdered. The murder weapon was an axe belonging to Josiah.  The axe would be found in the guest room.

Doctors concluded that the murders had taken place between midnight and 5 a.m. Two spent cigarettes in the attic suggested that the killer or killers patiently waited in the attic until the Moore family and the Stillinger guests were asleep. The killer(s) began in the master bedroom, where Josiah and Sarah Moore were sleeping.

Details of the Crime

Josiah received more blows from the axe than any other victim; his face had been cut to such an extent that his eyes were missing. They used the blade of the axe on Josiah while using the blunt end on the rest of the victims.

The killer proceeded into the children’s rooms and bludgeoned Herman, Katherine, Arthur, and Paul. The killer then returned to the master bedroom to inflict more blows on the elder Moores. Knocking over a shoe that had filled with blood, before moving downstairs to the guest bedroom and killing Ina and Lena.

 

Investigators believed that all of the victims except for Lena Stillinger had been asleep when murdered. The investigators believed that she was awake and tried to fight back.  This is because  Lena was found lying crosswise on the bed, and with a defensive wound on her arm. Lena’s nightgown was pushed up to her waist, wearing no undergarments.  This leads the police to believe that the killer(s) sexually molested her.

Demon Possession at the Villisca Axe House Video

One of the things to watch for in this video is an orb that goes into Tim’s mouth.  While we are not a big fan of orbs typically, this orb shoots into Tim’s mouth right before the demon possession occurs on the Ouija Board.  Could this be the demon that haunts the Villisca Axe House?
