    1. there is an abandoned mansion in the woods behind the UPS building next tothe juvenile detention center that was said to be owned by a drug lord that the FBI rated and that 1.5 billion dollars have not been found in the house but no one will go in the house due to the fact that it is haunted by over 3000 people that have been killed in the house the front of the house has been smashed in by the FBII remember I had a friend of mine that went there he ended up in a mental institution known as Whitfield he told methat while he was in the house that a figure pushed him off the second floor and he landed on a glass table he came out rambling on about a woman in a white dress trying to scare him basically when I asked him why did you go and he said because I wanted to see if I can find the money I asked him how far did you get he said that when he got to the basement that’s where most of the paranormal attack cavity was and he was very frightened when he began to go up the stairs he would hear voices calling and wanting to know if he was trying to steal or whatever and he asked me if I wanted to go and I told him no and if anyone wants to try it is only at your own risk you enter alive but you might come out dead your body that is but not your soul.
