JOSAIAH WITH HIS WIFE SARA AND CHILDREN

THE REVIEW OF WHAT HAPPENED IN THIS HOUSE ON JUNE 13. 1912:-
About 97 years ago, two adults and six children were brutally murdered in their beds in the small town of Villisca, Iowa.
 Life in this town changed rapidly. Newspaper reporters and detectives flooded the streets. Hundreds of interviews filled
 thousands of pages. But the murderer remained unpunished.


THE BEDROOM WHERE SISTERS DIED DOWNSTAIRS

WHAT HAPPENED IN JUNE 9TH AND 10TH, 1912:-
Lena and Ina Stillinger, the daughters of Joseph and Sara Stillinger, left to church in the sunday morning. They planned to 
have dinner with their grandmother and spend afternoon with her and return home at night. They were invited to spend a 
night with Katherine Moore instead of Moore home. Mr Moore called Stillinger to ask permission for the girls to stay
overnight. Blanche, Lena and Ina's older sister, told Mr Moore that her parents were both outdoors but she would pass the
 message along to them.


STILLINGER SISTER LENA

The Children day program at Presbyterian Church began at approaximately 8.00 pm on sunday June 9th. The program ended at
 9.30 pm and the Moore family, along with Stillinger family the two sisters, walked home from church. They entered home 
around 9:45 and 10:00 pm. 
SON OF JOSAIAH WHO WAS KILLED

The next morning, at around 5:00pm, the Moore's neighbour entered the yard to hang the cloghers. At 7:00pm she doubted
 why Moore's family not been outside. Then she knocked the door. There was no response. It was locked from inside.She 
then called Josiah's brother, Ross Moore and found the bodies inside the house. 


DOOR WHICH BANGS ITSELF AND MADE GEESEMAN RUNAWAY

VICTIMS:-

Ross Moore entered and attempted to look through a bedroom window and knocked the door and shouted. Then he found the
 keys and opened the door.
When he opened the bedroom door he found two bodies on the bed. The two Stillinger's sisters also found dead downstairs.
 Every person in that house was brutally murdered. 


THE AXE WHICH KILLED THE FAMILY

THE EVIDENCES FOUND AT THAT TIME:-
All the curtains had been drawn except the two windows do not have any curtains. The weapon ,"an axe" of Josaiah was found
 in the bedroom of Stillinger sisters. It was covered in blood. Other details are a pan of bloody water and a plate of untouched food on the table, A small keychain was found. 

STRANGE NOISES:-
Early in 1930's, the house was rented to Homer and Bonnie, a young couple. Shortly after the couple moved in, Bonnie told
 Homer on multiple occassions that someone was in the house. She heard strange noises throughout the night. She complained 
that she saw a man with an axe. These incidents occurred regularly and the couple went to visit a local physician. Homer decided to stay awake during the night and watch what was happening. He remained in chair at the end of bed. He also began hearing strange noises what Bonnie described.

One day Homer heard the sound of someone walking up and down the stairs. The next day he wanted to meet house owner
 and discuss about refunding his deposit and rent so that they could move away from the house.


THE EVIDENCE OF GHOST FOUND IN PARANORMAL INVESTIGATION

The another incident was reported by John and Alice Geeseman, who purchased the home. Geeseman would not sleep 
in the house and actually gone so far to make a bed in the barn. Neighbours thought that there must be some marriage
 problems. The young couple living along with the Geeseman family always find the door open at the evenings and always
wake up to close the door. Immediately after somedays they parted from Geeseman family because they observed the door 
opening on its own. No one spoke a single word of what happened there. Geeseman refused to sleep inside the house because 
something wrong happened there. Later Two young girls and their parents rented the house. The father was a truck
driver and always go out for longer periods.The girls would awaken in the night to hear children crying. After sometime
 they would go to their rooms where clothes are thrown around. One day when the father was sharpening a knife, it flew 
from his hand and stabbed him in the palm. They packed up and left the house that evening.

The Villisca Axe Murder House Today:-
We will probably never know who is responsible for the Villisca axe murders. A century ago, crime scene investigation 
was much different. Some claim that the whole haunting is a hoax, while those who experienced it believe it is very real.
 Perhaps the mid 1990s renovations and tours may have stirred the spirits permanently residing there. For now, all we have 
are stories, a long, sordid history, and speculation. The victims, and their murderer, have long since perished, lost to 
the undeniable effects of time.
