ORLANDO, Fla. – Sunland Mental Hospital is one of the places that no one wants to talk about, but ask most in the area and they remember stories of horror that took place inside.
The building no longer exists as it was torn down in 1999 after its closing in the 1980s.
The children are what is remembered as many orphans were placed there, some were mentally retarded while others were handicapped. Much abuse was reported among those who had to make their residence there. Bars on cribs, rodents biting patients, no food, just feeding tubes.
The list goes on and on. Many unexplained deaths happened over the years, including the deaths of numerous children.
