Waverly Hills Sanatorium, the enormous Louisville, Kentucky facility built in 1910 to treat patients with tuberculosis, is a mecca for paranormal investigators! It is said that up to 6,000 people died there, and those deceased patients were all likely removed via the infamous, super creepy, 600-foot body chute! Patrick got the chance to join Karen Frazier, Cheryl Knight, and his friends "the Matts", for a private overnight investigation! Visit for more info!
