Starvation Heights - Gregg Olsen

Overview and Summary of Starvation Heights by Gregg Olsen

Category: Books

Genre: Non-Fiction

Author: Gregg Olsen

Some stories are never forgotten……

This is a true story of a haunted house located in Ollala, Washington.

In 1911 there were two wealthy British heiresses named Dora and Claire Williamson who came to a sanitarium near Seattle to undergo the fasting treatment of Linda Burfield Hazzard. Within a month of arriving at what the locals in Olalla, Wash., called “Starvation Heights,” the women were emaciated shadows of their former selves, groaning in pain, waiting for death.

The fasting treatment itself was ok, it’s purpose and all that but what made this wrong was how it was done. And the peculiarity of it, most of the people who underwent her treatment were rich people from Britain and when they died most of their money, jewelries and estates went all to Dr. Linda Hazzard.

It was a nice eerie story…. of how a doctor “murdered” those people. Not letting them eat and turning them skin and bones. She has a strong personality.
