* 12 rooms of 'horrific fun' at 'Murder Mansion'

The Xplosion of Horrors Haunted House has a "new" creepy, permanent home.

Built in the 1800s, "Murder Mansion," located at 211 N. Walnut St., Brazil, will have approximately 12 rooms of horrific fun and surprises.

"It's an extremely creepy place," event organizer Jared McCullough told The Brazil Times. "In the basement there are newspapers on the ceiling dated one month after the Titanic sank in April 1912. Also, we are looking for the paperwork now to prove it, but we have found out the house was used as a mental hospital before World War I."

The owner of the house has partnered with McCullough and other volunteers to organize the annual haunted house fundraiser to support a Clay County travel girls' softball team.

"In the future, as our girls get older, we will probably branch out to support other various non-profit organizations," McCullough said.

The doors of Murder Mansion will open "for those who dare to enter" tonight and Saturday, 7 p.m.-midnight, and the remaining weekends during October. The cost is $7 per person at the door or $5 in advance.

"Tickets are available for sale at Caribbean Works Tanning, 217 W. National Ave.," McCullough said. "People interested in more information or scheduling tours can contact me."

I believe they were trying to "scare" it up for the kids...
