The Truth about the Psycho AsylumRivercity Asylum, now known as the Psycho Asylum, is located in the historical vicinity of downtown San Antonio, Texas. It housed the criminally insane, as well as sick and infectious patients back in the late 1970's.On December 1, 1978, it was reported that 8 of the most dangerous patients escaped the Psycho Asylum. They ran loose in the facility as they tried to escape the "walls", which is how they referred to the Psycho Asylum. Later that same day, orderlies found 3 of the patients who had escaped hiding in the boiler room.

 

Forty two days later, a female patient by the name of Carrie Blair, who had also escaped was found. Her lifeless body was found in the abandoned top floor of ward N. 20. An unsuccessful search was done for the other 4 patients who had also escaped but apparently the only floor that was missed was that of ward N. 20. Soon after, a maintenance man found another one of the patients who had escaped. The body was lifeless, cold, and unclothed, she had been dead for several days. M\The official cause of death was heart failure but what caused the heart failure still remains a mystery.

 

A stain in the shape of a human figure can still be seen on the floor where she died. It is said that her spirit can be seen peering from the window of the room in which she spent her final moments. People have also said they can hear disembodied female voices, see lights, and shadows of people and the sound of squeaking gurneys in the hallways. To this day the other 3 patients who escaped have never been found!It is said that the 3 remaining patients who escaped, died in the Psycho Asylum and their souls are not at rest. They still roam the Psycho Asylum at 1201 E. Houston. Become admitted and you too can join their lost souls!
