Occult Club Case Files
Occult Club Case Files
These files, still in the process of being correlated and indexed by Alvin, are some of the most prominent oddities outside the school tracked by various members of the Club over the years.
1) Faraday Mansion
Located along the stretch of the Rue de Fantome known as the ‘Haunted Mile’ and ‘Murder Mile’. It is infamous for the murder of Desmond Faraday, a millionaire shipyard owner. He was attacked in his own mansion by unknown assailants just before a big Halloween Party in 1954. His decapitated body was left, under a full head mask, in the study, where it stayed before being noticed by partygoers. After that, subsequent owners of the mansion reported seeing his headless corpse, still dressed in a tuxedo, wandering the house at night. Several members of the various families that owned the mansion suffered odd accidents leading to injury and death that don’t seem to be accidents, given the brutal nature of the injuries, neck injuries almost causing or causing decapitation. The mansion has sat empty since 1992, when five people were killed just before a Halloween party via decapitation and electrocution from a defective power line.
2) St. Erasmus’s Church
In 1924, a young couple, Lionel Bestry and Olivia Collins, were on their way to be married at their church, when they were caught in the crossfire from members of the Moretti gang and a rival gang. News reports from the time indicate the bullet riddled horror the deaths were when the car was inspected, especially Ms. Collins, found pierced with so many bullets her white wedding dress was crimson red. Since then, the church has been reported haunted, with incidents of seeing or hearing the antique car pull up, followed by gunfire and hideous screams. Weddings are no longer held there, and the church was shut down, following sightings of a pale woman in a red dress stalking the area, with several prospective brides at the church brutally murdered.
3) Greenhaven University Bell Tower
In 1976, members of fraternity Omega Tau Theta were hazing ledges. The pledges were told a story of the bell tower being haunted by a frat pledge who had committed suicide. Three pledges headed up the tower, one at a time. Only the last one gave the agreed signal that they had reached the top, showing a flashlight at the window. When none came down, the frat head, Brennan Euwell, a member of a prominent local political family, went up to check on them. He was later found deceased in the bell tower, on a heart attack, with no sign of the three missing pledges. Since then, the tower has been closed, though there are persistent reports of students lured into the tower by a light shining at night, only to be found dead later in the upper room, victims of coronaries.
4) Warren # 20 High School
Some students have gone missing over the last five years, a total of five, in the same building, Building #2, in or near classroom 210.
