Visiting the Illinois asylum for the incurable insane

After being abandoned for some thirty odd years, the Bowen building was recently purchased by Richard Weiss. Mr. Weiss bought the building which is actually located in Bartonville, IL with thoughts of restoring it as a possible bed and breakfast or luxury condos. He soon found out he'd bought more than he had bargained for. On his first day of cleanup he was bombarded by local ghost hunters dying for legal entry into the cold, graffiti laden corridors of the old asylum. That's when I was called in to make sure the entities that called the old place home were not malicious or evil. Being a fan of old abandoned asylums, how could I refuse?
