Unless, of course, you’re visiting Corpsewood Manor located in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Visiting the ruins of this horrific Georgia double murder just might be a bit too terrifying for some.

In 1982, outside Summerville, Georgia, Dr. Charles L. Scudder, who was a retired professor from Loyola University in Chicago, and his partner Joseph “Joey” Odom, were living in their hand-built home. This brick mansion was built as their dream home. They lived happily with their two mastiff dogs, until one fateful night in December.

All that’s left of the brick mansion are the haunting ruins, and one ghastly tale that still remains a mystery to this day.
