When Dr Thaddeus Idalia’s father, Dr Jacob Idalia, moved the family from tombstone Arizona to Delaware, he settled in a quaint house in a mining town located near his sons property. Thaddeus studied medicine while he lived in the manor. Jacob took care of the ill in the mining town. As the gold rush boomed and the thirst of outlaws grew to such frenzied extremes that they were willing to kill for more wealth, Dr Jacob’s wife and two daughters were killed in a house fire intentionally set by the outlaws.
Seeking his revenge, Dr Jacob Idalia poisoned the well water of the town, slowly killing himself and everyone in it. Innocent or guilty, every last one of the townspeople died a slow horrible death. Now, they will inhabit the town forever as ghosts – enternally damned to the place where they were murdered.
