    I was wondering if anybody live at residence in Scranton very interested to do a documentary please write back

  2. John, you’re talking about the Jones family that owned the place throughout the 30’s and 40’s. It was Edgar Jones that ‘found’ all the human remains, they’re supposedly from the teenagers that went missing a few years before. I looked through the papers at the library, but couldn’t find anything else about it. No word if anyone ever got charged with anything.
