Who Haunts This Mansion?

Here’s a bit of Halloween fun. Can you guess who this lovely haunted Victorian mansion once belonged to?

I’ll give a few hints as we scroll through the pictures…

The Queen Anne house was built in 1887 (or 1889 depending on the source) but it wouldn’t be inhabited by its infamous owner until 1893.

The owner became infamous for a double homicide which they may or may not have committed.

According to the investigators, the murders took place both upstairs and down, and the motive behind the killings was a combination of jealousy and greed.

Ironically, one of the murder victims made their fortune through the sale of caskets, among other things.

This is not the house the murders took place in, although it’s not far from the crime scene.

This house, however, is claimed to be even more haunted than the original murder house!

Have you guessed it yet? Here’s a final clue.

The house is named Maplecroft and the murderer’s middle name was Andrew.

    1. Yes, imagine she really did do it. Justice was not only not served, but she got to live out the rest of her life in opulence just a mile from where she butchered her parents! Then again, if she didn’t do it, then she deserved to live in opulence for not butchering her parents but being blamed for it lol.
