Official Backstory (Part 3)

Hmmm, where was I? Ah, yes:
It seems the farmer in question had been noticing a strange smell of something rotting coming from the barn. When he opened it, there it was: the stuff of morbid legend, the Hangman's Crow! About six feet long, a decaying skull for a head, and a noose 'round it's rotten neck. Soon, everyone was talking about the reapperence of the Hangman's Crow. And of course, Emerick Belsco, with his bizzare scarecrow obsession, had to have it.
But not all was as it seemed. The Hangman's Crow had been made with the bones of a murderer, and the ghost of said killer did not want his body put on display again. So, when Belsco purchased the Hangman's Crow from the farmer, the murderer's ghost followed the body to Belsco Manor. There, it convinced the souls of the dead buried in the cemetery to help it haunt Emerick Belsco. They did, and slowly began to drive Belsco and his wife, Anastasia, insane. In the end, Belsco shot his wife, and hung himself, their ghosts joining those that had haunted them in life. But, it seems, in begining to haunt the Manor, the ghosts found that they would be trapped there forever. Belsco Manor was shuttered and abandoned. It still stands there, in Raven's Wood, New Hampshire, waiting for the day when its sole inhabitants, the ghosts, can haunt again.......
