Private Residence, Newton, Iowa

The large two story house was built in 1904. It has had 17 owners over the course of it 105 year life span. Three owners of the house died suddenly; two within 10 days of acquiring the house, the other owner died within 7 months. Three previous owners as well as some neighbors have mentioned that this place is “haunted”.

The previous owner was startled by the appearance of a boy in the basement crawl space and refused to go down to the basement after that.

During the investigation, a researcher was touched; there was the sound of footsteps in an empty room and a series of knocks. A door leading to the utility room had been opened one inch. The owner had her hair pulled while we were in the basement.
