This Abandoned House In Maryland Has An Evil And Twisted Past

There are dozens of abandoned places throughout Maryland but not many people know the history behind them. While most forgotten abodes become uninhabited due to financial troubles or natural dilapidation, others have disturbing pasts. This particular abandoned house in Baltimore County has a tale so horrifying, it may have left an evil presence looming over the property.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

This house was the home of Stephen Craig Johnson, his wife, and their 14-month-old son. According to, Stephen had a history of drug abuse and on Christmas day 1983, his addiction had fatal consequences.

In an incoherent stupor, Stephen was convinced that his 14-month-old son was Jesus Christ reborn, and that he must die for everybody’s sins. He grabbed the child, and as his wife fought to retrieve their son, this led to a violent struggle. His wife ran next door to the neighbor’s house and called the police. When police arrived at the scene they found Stephen holding the lifeless, decapitated body of the child.

If you think this story is gruesome, imagine what it would be like to walk through the home where this infamous murder happened. That’s exactly what urban explorer, Dan Bell, did.
