Jerome, Arizona, is a ghost town, but not because it has been abandoned by the living, but because it has been taken by the dead. At the end of the 19th century, Jerome was a thriving community in the southwestern United States that began to experience a boom for copper.

Unfortunately, it was not long before Jerome was known for the shootings that resonated in the streets, the mining accidents that buried the men under tons of rubble and the numerous brothels and opium shops that opened in the most sordid areas of the city.

Husband's Alley was the epicenter of the decline of Jerome. A ghost that people claim to see enough in that place is that of Sammie Dean, a prostitute who was strangled in her bed by a client . According to legend, Sammie's ghost wanders restlessly through the streets looking for his killer.

But that's just the tip of Jerome's iceberg. In a nearby mine, "Charlie without a head" goes through the dark tunnels looking for his head. An abandoned clinic houses hundreds of ghosts who died of the flu in 1917. Almost every street and alley in Jerome has a gruesome story to tell.

John Jarman ran an inn conveniently located on the main street of Colnbrook. Interestingly, not all accommodations were the same at the Ostrich Inn. For wealthy travelers, Jarman provided a special room directly above the kitchen .

His guests might realize that the bed was stuck in the ground, or maybe not. Maybe they would notice that the room was getting gradually warmer, or maybe they were too tired to worry.

The truth is that when the travelers settled down to spend the night, they got the fright of their lives: by pulling a lever, the floor was opened and the bed was tilted over a trapdoor throwing the guests on a pile full of boiling water .

According to rumors, John Jarman killed more than 60 people at the Ostrich Inn in the seventeenth century. With the help of his wife, he boiled them alive and then piled the bodies in the basement. And, of course, that's where the ghost story begins.

The improvised warehouse in Jarman's basement is now the women's bathroom of a restaurant. The staff of the new facility claims to hear sudden noises, witness the flickering of lights for no reason and find objects that have been moved without apparent explanation.
