Topeka Insane Asylum

Topeka State Hospital, formerly know as Topeka Insane Asylum was a real American Horror Story for the patients.  One newspaper reported told of “a patient confined in leather straps so long, the skin was growing around the straps.”  There were other horror stories about patients being raped, neglected, abused and forced sterilizations.   The hospital has been closed since 1997 but its chilling and horrifying history continues.  For rare images taken from inside the hospital visit here.
