Haunting: The Murder/Suicide House



Somewhere in Gloucester is an abandoned house that sits at the end of a cul-de-sac known as the murder/suicide house.  It is partially hidden by shrubs and vines and is located at the water's edge.  The house has been empty for over 60 years after a murder-suicide took place inside the now decaying walls.

The story has been told many years about the family who once lived there.  The father was abusive, the mother was weak, and a little girl was often neglected by her parents.  I am not sure why, but for some reason while the father was gone, the mother killed the daughter and then herself.  Some also say it was a place where witches once gathered to unmask evil.  Many say the place is haunted by the mother, daughter and some demon spirits.  I don't know exactly what happened, or if any of the stories are true because I couldn't find much information on the place.

However, Sharon and I had a weird experience on our first visit to the house.  While checking out the woods right next to the house to see where the creek was, we heard some leaves and branches crunching as if heavy feet were walking upon them.  This was followed by a whoop, weird calling, dogs barking, crows cawing loudly, and other questionable sounds.  Many associate this type of activity as a Bigfoot being nearby.  Did we have a Bigfoot encounter?  Was that what made the noises and was walking near the creek?  Did the crows warn them of us being nearby?  Did it make the fake rooster "cocka-doodle-doo"?  We don't know what we experienced, but we did feel like someone was watching us the entire time we were there.  Was is a Sasquatch?  It would be cool if it was, but I am not sure.  Here is the link to Sharon's post of the murder/suicide house and Bigfoot:  http://www.ghosthuntingtheories.com/2014/06/murder-suicide-house-and-bigfoot.html

    1. It is a haunting place, not just the house but the area surrounding it as well.

  2. Any other news behind the house as why was it never sold, remains abandon, what the neighbours experience?

    1. That is a good question. However I have no answer for you. I would like to know why no one has bought the house, and if any of the neighbors have seen weird going-ons around the area as well. We did see one of the neighbors feeding the ducks that roam free around the house.
